Finding the right place and the right time to contact your attendees doesn’t have to be serendipitous. Beacons by CrowdCompass let you set personalized alerts that attendees receive based on where they are standing, at the exact moment they get there. Magical, right?
Beacons: Wireless devices that broadcast tiny radio signals your smartphone can receive and interpret using Bluetooth low energy (BLTE) technology.
Start by creating a personalized experience for attendees with four beacon alert options. Plan ahead and create alerts long before the event starts.
Mount beacons in key locations – from the welcome table to exhibitor booths and session rooms, incorporating beacons is easy.
Now it’s time to sync your alerts with your beacons. User our dedicated mobile app to quickly activate your beacons.
Attendees receive personalized alerts when they come within close proximity of an activated beacon. For example, when attendees approach a beacon mounted on the breakfast bar a welcome alert is triggered.
Leverage beacons to ensure attendees see what you want them to see when you want them to see it. Here are a few examples:
Connect with attendees as soon as they arrive. Have a beacon on the registration table trigger an alert like, “Welcome to OrangeCorpWorld15.” Don’t stop there. Use the same approach at the end of the event. Trigger a thank you message with a call to action that prompts attendees to tap on a link to your website. “Thanks for attending! Don’t forget to sign up for our next event at www.orangecorp.com.”
A great speaker can energize and engage attendees. More often than not attendees want to get their hands on that inspirational presentation right away. Instead of hoping they navigate back to the session page, place a beacon in the doorway so a notification is triggered as soon as they enter the room. Link attendees directly to the session page where they can access the presentation file.
Worried about people showing up for the big welcome party? Use beacons to remind attendees. Place a beacon at the site of your reception, so attendees receive reminder alerts when they pass through. “Don’t forget! Come back to the Ballroom at 8 p.m. for the Welcome Reception.”
Monetize beacons while setting exhibitors up for success. Offer a mounted beacon at select booths making it possible to trigger action-based alerts as attendees explore the booth. “Stop by the Orange Corp booth and enter to win an iPad!”
Encourage attendee engagement that extends beyond your event. Set up a beacon at the information booth that triggers a “Follow Orange Corp on Facebook” alert when an attendee stops by.
