Rewarding Exploration...

Communities, businesses and organizations must constantly find new ways to expose their attractions and services to a larger audience. In an increasingly digital and mobile world, we must go beyond traditional marketing to stay relevant and engaged with visitors. Read the White Paper entitled The Presence Economy which talks about the importance of nurturing a greater degree of engagement with our audience.

The Insider App developed by 468 Communications is a customizable mobile app that drives visitor engagement and commerce by rewarding users for visiting places. The more places visited, the more points earned. Points can be redeemed for discounts on goods and services and easily administered by a user dashboard established for the entity managing the app. The App can be customized and branded to suit your needs and made available via a FREE download from the Apple Store or Google Play.

An Example of Insider Benefits

  • By deploying the app, chambers of commerce, convention and visitors bureaus and destination marketing organizations can go beyond basic directory listings, making their communities more fun and memorable for visitors.
  • By offering businesses placement in this app, organizations can drive commerce and help their members stay relevant in the mobile age.
  • These same organizations need to understand the needs and behaviors of their audience. The Insider’s online control panel generates important insights, such as where visitors are from and where and when they visit places in the community.
