  • How do Beacons work?

    A Beacon is a small piece of hardware powered by a battery that can be attached to almost anything. It’s an inconspicuous smart device that sends out a Bluetooth Low Energy signal that can be received and interpreted by an App installed on a smartphone that has Bluetooth switched on. This signal triggers a response on the phone whether the App is open or not and once the connection is made you will receive notifications or alerts that there is content or info available for you to view and interact with. Contextually relevant and only within range, when you walk away from the Beacon no signal can reach you and you won’t be spammed with unnecessary messages. They will however remember your personal preferences for next time you visit or interact with them.

  • Benefit to retail?

    Beacons are the envisioned future of retail providing analytics, loyalty and customer service. BEAMO provides the ultimate in location services, immediate reward, an enhanced and personalised shopping experience with valuable consumer data and insights back to the store or brand owner. It is a cost-effective and highly reliable solution to engage directly with a consumer using intelligent wireless connections that are personal, private and just-in-time. Retailers can use BEAMO to get more feet in-store, understand and reward loyal customers, increase basket size, provide customised service, offer promotions, vouchers and one-time deals. Or they can be used by in-store operations to check deliveries, stock levels, monitor staff activity and supply chain processes. The cost savings from money spent on traditional campaigns and mass large format printing is another benefit, but it’s the data gathered from the BEAMO Beacons like shopper behaviour, product preferences, promotions uptake, content engagement, store flow, and personal buying habits that could prove revolutionary for any retailer.

  • Benefit to brands?

    We hear a lot about the Internet of Things, Omni-channel marketing and for the most part up until now brands have used Beacons simply to send messages like special offers. Beacon technology has the potential to fundamentally shift how brands intersect the online and bricks-and-mortar customer experience with the digital mobile experience. Building off an already complex content marketing strategy for digital media, the ability to target customers individually based on interests, preference, intent and physical location and convert this insight into buyer intent and immediate revenue upside will have a profound positive impact on these forward-thinking brands. Creating a positive brand experience that will have knock-on effects in attracting new fans and brand advocates. Beacons are here in SA, they affordable, simple to implement and easy to scale. Beacons are being used in restaurants, events, retail areas, sports stadiums, museums, airports and homes. The best news for brands is the fact that Beacons are an opt-in solution establishing a trust relationship between brand and consumer.

    Of the consumers that received a push notification to their smartphone in the past 6 months, 79% made at least one purchase as a direct result.
