Every tax business wants to stretch their marketing budget to reach the greatest number of customers possible. A digital marketing platform incorporating beacon technology helps companies effectively connect with new customers while maintaining engagement with existing customers. A partnership between 1040TaxBiz and ipushsales offers benefits to our clients in two ways at a discounted rate. First, you can use the technology to build your own tax business. Second, as a reseller of the service to ANY industry, you can earn additional income.
A beacon is a small device that beams messages to nearby android phones with Bluetooth and notification alerts enabled. The distance that message carries depends on the style of beacon and can be adjusted to a small area such as the immediate space around a museum display to a large area such as the streets around a home listing.
You can place beacons inside a store to alert people to information about the products and services. Placing them near your competitors allows you to inform people how your own business excels to drive them to buy from you.
Beacons have found uses in many industries beyond the examples below.
- Major retailers use beacon technology to inform their customers of specials and offer coupons.
- Realtors can place one in homes for sale so people passing by can learn about the listing.
- Restaurants use the beacon to transmit breakfast, lunch and dinner specials that change by the time of day.
- Museums can send links to videos as visitors travel through the displays.
The message transmitted by the beacon includes a link to a landing page. Landing pages are mini web pages that you create to capture the viewer’s attention about an aspect of your business.
You can describe your product or service, offer a coupon, direct the customer to your main web site for more information, or collect their contact information for mailing lists.
What does the iPush digital marketing platform offer?
