It is time for the location based marketing to synergy with digital publishing. Adding value to the particular venue is the main goal and PressPad lounge can be the key to achieve it. In this article you will see how Radisson Blu hotel implemented “PressPad Lounge”, a new digital press corner that utilizes iBeacon technology.
Growing number of Internet of things applications proves that IOT took off, and it has potential to shape venue marketing. Venue owners can provide higher value to their visitors and clients in a previously unexplored area. Whether it’s a hotel lobby, a shopping mall, restaurant or a booth, PressPad Lounge enables a slick marriage of digital publishing with location marketing.
The idea of PressPad Lounge is to allow a business to turn a space into a reading zone, where those with mobile devices are able to access digital publications for free. All this utilizing their own mobile devices.
PressPad publishers use customized smart widgets on their websites to attract visitors to install their mobile magazine app. We have analyzed traffic that went through our widgets in 2014 and found it very interesting to share with you. Here is a last year’s data collection, including mobile OS share, from over a hundred PressPad widgets.
First and foremost the widget is designed this way to always show the latest digital edition’s cover and the two badges linking to App Store and Google Play. There is also another widget available for our publishers that is called PressPad Web Store. It allows publishers to sell digital editions through their own websites. That supports PayPal transactions to extend shopping experience from in-app to their website.
– Why we do this? Because web widgets have proved to be effective, online sales tools with conversion rate up to 20% (measured during nine months testing period).
2014 was PressPad’s best year so far. We grew our publisher base and developed PressPad software, with new features such as rich media support and iBeacons compatibility. In June we extended our operation into Japan and our apps reached a total of one million installs.
We are confident that the New Year will bring lots of changes to the digital publishing industry, changes that we will be part of.
With the introduction of “PressPad Lounge”, we are entering a completely new land of location marketing. “PressPad Lounge” is an innovative product that will be available for venue owners. There, digital magazines will meet people at their actual location thanks to the iBeacon technology.
Forget traditional magazines laying around in your lounge
YouTube is one of the biggest social media network in the world. More than 1 billion unique users visit YouTube every month. Over 6 billion hours of video are viewed each month on YouTube—that’s almost an hour for every person on Earth. What is more, YouTube reaches more US adults aged 18-34 than any cable network. From now on, YouTube videos can be used by PressPad publishers and viewed from inside of their magazine apps.
YouTube’s viewership is extraordinary. More than 1 billion unique users visit YouTube each month and 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every single minute. That shows how powerful of a medium online videos have become.
What does that mean for digital publishers? It means that, if they want to build a rich experience and engage their readers, they should be using that medium, too. That is why PressPad decided to go a step further and introduce in-app video support, including YouTube and Vimeo support.
