Digifli Reaches Out To The Community

Letter from Jess…

Digiflis are popping up all over Alameda and even some in Oakland.

Digifli [Di-jeh-fly] is my husband’s invention. He programmed it, built it and now we work together on getting it out into the community. Basically Digifli is a digital kiosk to support community events, fundraisers, local businesses and local artists.

We were going door to door with fliers to promote our events at our art gallery Studio 23 when the idea started to formulate for my husband. Now we have over 50 digital kiosks in the east bay area.

Digifli gives free advertising to select non-profits putting on fundraisers in the bay area.  It is really easy to be a part of it, just send us the information to your latest fundraiser (or flier) and will have your flier live in over 50 locations in the bay area within 30 minutes.

Here are a few campaign’s running for non-profits right now to give you an idea of what they look like.


Also, take a look at Digifli kiosks around town!

Why it’s good for us (aka Digifli)
We give free advertising to artists and nonprofits to support the community. We are artists ourselves and have been very active in the community for the last 5 years, as well as have put on several fundraisers. Digifli puts community first. This is why you won’t ever see corporate and/or chain advertising on Digifli. The kind of advertisers we have are local, like The US Hornet, Rhythmix Cultural Works and things like the city’s Restaurant Week.

Why it’s good for you
Digifli is 100% free.
Digifli will help spread awareness about your nonprofit and/or fundraising events.
Digifli will help your nonprofit raise funds.

Ways to use Digifli
1. Campaign advertisement.
2. Be a kiosk owner.

Campaign Advertisement: You do not have to have a physical kiosk at your location to use Digifli to promote your campaign. You just need to create a free Digifli account. If you are a non-profit or a business that shows local art you may be selected to run a free campaign. If you run a lot of fundraisers and non-profit events, we may set you up with your own free account where you can manage multiple fundraising campaigns.

Kiosk Owners:
1. Having a Digifli kiosk in your own location is like having your own digital sign. Post class schedules, introduce new programs, feature volunteers and staff, highlight events and fundraisers.
2. If you choose to have a kiosk installed you will be automatically allotted a free campaign with up to 3 locations. (non-profits may be given unlimited free locations.)
3. Having a kiosk installed is totally free!

This is a grassroots company from two people that love the bay area. If you can set aside 20 minutes we would love the opportunity to come by and show you how it works in person.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, for supporting local business and your community!

– Jess

Digital Signage Price Comparison and Cost Analysis

digifli digital signage at modern mouse

Digifli now offers Digital Signage

In order to come up with a competitive pricing model, we researched some popular digital signage companies and did some analysis. We decided to base our analysis on the first month (startup cost) and the first year accumulated cost.

We looked at several digital signage companies and used the pricing listed on their website. This is not a feature comparison but we tried to use products with similar feature sets.

Since none of the services provide the HDTVs required, and most did not provide installation service, we left those out of the numbers.

You will need to add the cost of purchasing and  installing HDTV screens, and installing the digital signage hardware into the equation if you are creating a budget.

Digifli Kiosk Partner Agreement 2018

Kiosk Location Terms of Service

Digifli will:

  • Provide and install all or part of the equipment for the Kiosk free of charge.
  • Provide the partner with an app to control the kiosk.
  • Remove the equipment at the request of the Partner.

Partner agrees to:

  • Keep the Digifli plugged in, turned on, and in clear view of the public.
  • Work with Digifli for troubleshooting and support.
  • Surrender any Digifli equipment upon request.
  • Make the best effort to keep the equipment clean and safe.


Advertiser: Anyone who creates a campaign on Digifli.

Partner: (aka Kiosk Location): A business with a kiosk.

Kiosk: A unit that shows digital slides. A kiosk consists of a screen and Digifli box.

Slide:   (aka a “digital flier”) A single JPG image uploaded to a Digifli kiosk.

Campaign: A slide appearing on multiple kiosks, created by an advertiser.



All equipment remains the property of Digifli. It may be removed at any time. The partner is not liable for any damage or loss of equipment, and the partner agrees to not hold Digifli liable for any damages related to the service.


Digifli supplies the kiosk free by allowing local businesses to advertise. When an advertiser runs a campaign, they select the locations from a list. If your location has been selected, the campaign will appear on your Digifli. A partner may also be an advertiser, but an advertiser does not necessarily have a kiosk. Anyone can submit a campaign, they do not have to have a kiosk.

Quality Standards

We manually review and approve every campaign before it appears on the Digifli network. All campaigns must meet our community standards. Note: We do not review the slides you upload to your own kiosk.

Blocking Campaigns

You have the ability to block a campaign if it is not suitable for your location. The app allows you to see all the campaigns running on your kiosk. If you block a campaign, you must provide a reason, which we may share with the advertiser.

If too many campaigns are blocked we may have to remove the kiosk from your location. Each case is dealt with individually, there is no specific limit. There should be very few occasions where campaigns need to be blocked.

Terms of Service

The terms and definitions and the bounds of this agreement may change in the future. Please see the website for the current terms of service.
