Triggered Messaging and the Digital Signage Industry

Narnia movie trailer by: Hao Le

Imagine you’re in London, possibly about to close a deal with a potentially lucrative client, or maybe just taking your annual vacation. As you walk through the heart of the city at Piccadilly Circus you hear the roar of a plane engine overhead. Normally, this wouldn’t hold your attention, but you suddenly notice a giant digital billboard on the building directly below it light up: the image of a child appears, pointing at and following the plane, while information about the flight number and destination appear. Your attention has been caught: welcome to the world of triggered messaging.

What is triggered messaging?

Triggered messaging entails the use of messages that are programmed to be sent or shown when a particular event happens. It has been used in a number of industries, particularly email marketing by companies such as MailChimp and Hubspot as part of their marketing campaigns. Triggered marketing within the digital signage industry is not a new concept, but has been used as far back as 2005 in order to engage customers and increase sales.
