Top 8 Digital Signage Content Ideas For Halloween

1. Creep It Real With The User-generated Social wall

Captivate your audience with Taggbox Display’s engaging social wall by displaying all the funky Halloween content your audience has created. You can create a unique hashtag for Halloween and promote it among your audiences. It also calls for a great opportunity to organize a Halloween hashtag contest.

You can ask the participants to create content around the Halloween theme and announce goodies for the winner. Display all the user-generated content as a social wall on the digital signage at your premises. Engage the visitors, instill social proof to generate more UGC, and expand your social media presence.

2. A Spooky Halloween Photobooth

Halloween is incomplete without a photobooth. That’s because people love to dress up spooky, click pictures and compare each others’ looks. Add a photo booth to your premises, or create a virtual photo booth for your audience. You can even add an AI filter and your brand’s logo to the photo booth to create more thematic visuals with the pictures captured at your photo booth. It will be a fun activity for your audience and offer you some amazing & unique content to display on your digital signage.

You can use the Taggbox Display social wall to display the photo booth pictures on the digital signage in real-time, as the social wall is auto-synced. The photos will appear on the screen instantly when your audience tags you or uses your hashtag while posting the photo booth pictures.

3. Have Audience Under Spell With Real-time Announcements

Digital Signage allows users to upload and display information in real-time. Digital Signage is so eye-catching that it is more effective and ecological than any paper announcement. The best part is that you don’t need anyone’s help. You can simply upload the information from your smartphone or any other device, and it will automatically update on all digital signages at your premises.

It opens up amazing opportunities for you. You can display announcements related to any Halloween contests you are organizing around your premises. You can share the contest instructions like how to participate, rules the participants must follow, and the schedule. Not just that, you can even announce the winners’ names with digital signage.

4. Get Creative With The Halloween Theme

If you wish to add the “boo!” factor to your premise ambiance through digital signage, then Taggbox Display is the right solution for you. The Studio by Taggbox Display allows you to upload your files on digital screens in the form of images, videos, HTML, GIFs, etc., and create scenes that you can schedule for days and months.

5. Have Fun With The Countdown Timer

Organize Halloween games at your premises and use the Taggbox Display Studio’s app, “countdown timer,” to display a timer on the digital signage. You can organize games that require people to do certain tasks in a certain amount of time. The digital signage timer will add a perfect touch of enthusiasm to the premises.

Halloween is considered the beginning of the holiday season. You can even add a countdown timer on the eve of Halloween for your staff members. Once the countdown ends, you can congratulate them for the beginning of the holiday season, creating excitement and better employee engagement.

6. Interactive Halloween Experience With QR Code

Make your digital signage more interactive by adding a QR code to the screen with the help of Taggbox Display Studio. You can introduce fun Halloween theme games like ‘zombie attack,’ ‘into the dead,’ etc., that your visitors can play once they scan the QR code on the digital signage. It would be a great opportunity for you to continue engaging your audience via their smartphones even if they have left the premises.

Not just that, if you are a retail store owner, you can offer holiday discount coupons to the customers who scan the QR code, keeping the concept of trick or treat in mind.

7. Display Spine-chilling Short Videos

There are many content creators on platforms like YouTube and Vimeo who create short videos on different themes. Sticking to the Halloween theme, you can collect all those devilish or vampiric videos from these platforms and upload them on the digital signage at your premises with the help of Taggbox Display Studio’s easy display options.

It is a great strategy to engage your audience and set the Halloween mood at your premises. The videos will attract and woo the visitors, make you stand out among competitors, and drive more traffic to your premises.

8. Go Eco-friendly This Holiday Season

With the world being under a global warming crisis, brands are going eco-friendly. One thing that has been identified is that the holiday season causes major eco waste. That’s because brands and industries spend a large amount of money in buying marketing gimmicks. They won’t even be relevant once the holiday season is over. Don’t be another contributor and use digital signage as the most relevant integration of all time. 

Rather than investing in large hoardings or banners, use digital signage to display your marketing campaigns. It will be eco-friendly and cost-effective, all at once.
