Understanding In-Person Sales Techniques*
Thursday, March 29 at 1:00pm EST

How do you know what’s being said, when nothing is being said? Sales relationships demand an environment of mutual communication. Learn how to direct a conversation, how to interpret non-verbal cues and how to get your point across while respecting the communication bias of the target.

Selling is more than closing. Good selling, that promotes solid and repeatable business growth, is dependent upon the ability to influence. Influence requires complete communication, and complete communication takes into account the haptic, proxemic and NVB aspects of an interpersonal interface.

Quick Shout: Drawing a Crowd with Interactive Digital Signage Live Webinar 2/29/12

Live Webinar:
February 29, 2012 at 2:00 PM EST

Presented By:  Digital Signage Magazine
Sponsored By:  NEC

Digital signage continues to break new ground with bigger, brighter displays, increasingly advanced deployment logistics and dynamic content you can’t take your eyes off. However, nothing seems to have created as much buzz, lasting impressions and word-of-mouth amongst consumers as those installations that tout high levels of interactivity. While these setups attract crowds and provide endless amusement, a copious amount of planning, technology and ingenuity go into creating these “how did they do that?” solutions.
In this webinar, presenters will provide a behind-the-scenes look into interactive digital signage, touching on the types of interactivity available, hardware necessary for successful deployments and best practices in the industry.
The webinar will focus on:

  • Defining interactive digital signage
  • Wayfinding, order kiosks and other touchscreen applications
  • Video wall interaction via cameras and facial recognition
  • Audience analytics
  • Success stories
