I like BEACONS as a way to stimulate sales. Beacons are your silent salesman just as good space management is. Beacons are similar to a lighthouse: it repeatedly transmits a signal that other devices can see. Instead of emitting visible light, though, it broadcasts a radio signal that is made up of a combination of letters and numbers transmitted on a regular interval. A Bluetooth-equipped device like a smartphone can “see” a beacon once it’s in range, much like sailors looking for a lighthouse to know where they are.

The positive part is that if you have a controlled brand (tobacco or liquor and if your consumer has the AP they are already qualified to receive the message)
 
Beacons can send location-based messages and drive engagement with your consumers. They can connect the physical with the digital at events, bar crawls, Retail Stores, C-Stores, liquor stores or Kash & Karry’s.

A GeoFence can be looked as a virtual perimeter that you can draw around any location on a map, and then target consumers that enter that location. GPS and/or WIFI are used to connect. (WIFI being the most economical.)

GeoFencing has many opportunities for your industry. In the case where you have a controlled brand - for that brand the consumer has the option to opt in/out. In the case of GeoFencing you opt in by accepting the notification sent when you enter the GeoFence and opt out if not interested. This can be used to ID guests who support your brand, dislike your brand or are under age. There is no APP needed in this format.   ca6b85b5 e02b 470a 9286 1bb4a12608de
