Top 14 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 photo booth. That’s because people love to dress up spooky, click pictures and compare each other’s 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 created using a logo design app 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 upload the information from your smartphone or any other device, and it will automatically update 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, the 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 Taggbox Display’s Studio 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 “countdown timer” app 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.

Not only that, but you can also enable the “SnapUp” feature by Taggbox Display that comes with a QR code that appears on your Social wall. Your audience can easily scan the QR code from their devices and directly upload their Halloween-themed images without using any social media platform.

7. Display Spine-chilling Short Videos

Many content creators on platforms like YouTube and Vimeo 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 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.

9. Share your handpicked Halloween playlist

If you are looking for Halloween content ideas, one great way to do so is by getting people to match your vibes through music, share your Halloween playlist, and help others discover new music pieces. 

Imagine a spooky night with a killer playlist including all the eerie classics and hits that give Halloween vibes. Share your song selection on social media or your website. Connect with people on common ground.

10. A blast from Halloween past: Throwback costume

You can use this tactic to set in motion the Halloween vibes. Wipe off the dust on last year’s Halloween visuals and content and give people a throwback. And while we are at it, share your childhood pictures and videos and showcase your costume lookbook on Gram or other social platforms. 

To promote your brand, you can compose a spooky song and visuals to catch the viewer’s attention and help you bring traffic to your business.

11. Show yourself carving Halloween fun: A pumpkin

Another fantastic Halloween content idea is to welcome your creative spirit as the Halloween season comes. Get into the Halloween mood by carving pumpkins, taking photos, and recording videos to share on your social media.

Also, get ready to get high engagement through likes, comments, and shares on your content. People love seeing new ideas, so showcase your creativity and results.

12. “Pet in a costume” posts

When it comes to competition, nothing gets more engagement or attracts more traffic than pet visuals. So why not use that fact to your benefit? 

Share your pet looking adorable in a Halloween costume on your webpage or social media and interact with others as they comment and reshare your content. And when it comes to cuteness, you can also post your little ones in costume to catch your eyes if you are comfortable.

13. Share your Halloween makeup lookbook

Halloween is one of the most awaited times to show off your makeup skills. Create new news and help others choose their look when the time comes with updated and fresh appearances. 

Create a social wall with catchy content with looks that inspire you and display them in your gatherings, stores, digital screens, websites, or social media platforms, piquing the interest of people in the masses.

14. Film a Halloween dance reel

You must show those moves if you are also trying to connect with your audience and bring more eyes using short form video content. The young generation loves to create their version of dance steps, so get on the stage or in front of your recorder and share some fun and trending dancing. 

To give this Halloween content idea a grade up, add crisp and give it Halloween vibes by choosing some spooky song and a fantastic outfit and challenge others to recreate their edition by adding a twist.
