What Is WiFi Marketing?
WiFi marketing uses guest WiFi to collect & clean customer data such as names, emails, phone numbers, customer behavior, and demographics. This data is used to personalize marketing campaigns to increase customer loyalty, build online reviews, and save at-risk customers.
These marketing campaigns consist of offers, messages, and surveys that are sent to customers based upon their behavior.
All campaigns can be tracked down to the tangibility of a customer walking back in your door.
