5 Big Advantages of using INFORM Poster Displays in Waiting Rooms

  1. Posters are positioned prominently and give high visibility to a captive and receptive audience (typically, patients in waiting rooms have up to 20 minutes to absorb your message).
  2. They are suited to all messages, and are particularly suited to messages of a sensitive nature. The public can see the message without having to reach out and pick it up, and the poster can direct them to a brochure, website or hotline for more information.
  3. Our Posters are merchandised by our team – so they are carefully positioned and they are removed when the display period is over. The static-cling Posters makes best-positioning possible. 
  4. The display schedule is flexible – from 12 weeks to 12 months. Your posters are also automatically included at all newly acquired GP locations on your network, as they arise. We also provide free warehousing of your posters.
  5. Every poster viewed represents a connection with a potential new patient/consumer. They can read your message, ask the GP a question, take note of your website or phone number, or purchase your product or service.

Free Advice and Support

INFORM has an approval process in place in relation to all information being displayed within the network. This is to ensure that all messages are appropriate and that GPs will welcome the information being displayed.  We also have a great understanding of what works best within the network, so please feel free to contact us and discuss your messages or designs in advance of printing.
