I couldn’t think of another way to send this.
I have a number of questions running around my non techie head and wonder if you could help me to understand them using plain English (American will suffice)
I understand that Google pulled out of the market which, to me, meant no more Beacon marketing. That is confirmed by what I read into what you guys are working on to (sot of) replace what Google offered the market through Chrome?…right/wrong?
So, some people tell me, no Beacon marketing yet I’m told but others are offering it (I’ll name just one). Beaconstac.com who seem to have some big name users https://www.screencast.com/t/MZA8XWI7bMQ
I want to have my own platform so therefore I don’t want to use anybody else’s. So, I asked around and was told;
- You need an App (native not PWA)
- I hear words like Walletly, Manychat
- https://www.wordstream.com/blog/ws/2018/10/04/beacon-technology seems to say that Google are back on the case. I see the article was written initially in 2017 but updated in June this year.
Is there a way that I can set up my small town with proximity marketing as a tool to boost trade for local businesses?
I am the admin of a closed local Facebook group with 5,200 members many of who would like to support local businesses especially with a special (group only) discount. I have partly prepared an online local directory to show any discounts local businesses are offering.
My small town has an indoor retail centre (mall) where I would like to place Beacons perhaps via the Mall operators. Is that feasible currently?
What would I need to do to place Beacons inside local brick and mortar stores if currently possible? Do I assume I need an App for each store?
I’d better stop here.
