BEACON FAQ’S

So what exactly is it Steve? How does it work?
Quite simple really, We call it the Pioneer Advertising Beacon and It uses Bluetooth technology and the cloud to send low priority notifications to Android devices within a proximity of around 90 metres. Until recently If you wanted to use this technology then you would need to have an app on someone’s phone in order to get a notification on their phone now as we know apps are very expensive to design and build. The good news is that this technology is built into every Android device.

Steve this looks excellent for static businesses…how does it work when mobile? Can you use it for events and non-static scenarios?
One use might be if a heating engineer is busy in someone’s house servicing a boiler and he had an Advertising beacon in the window of his van, then the message from his beacon could be beaming out to all the neighbours a message telling them just how good his service is and how they can get in touch.

As you say we have 2 or 3 things going on here, we have a URL to send the potential customer too, and a 40 character message that they will see on their screen which needs to be engaging & relevant. At the moment we program the beacons with the URL link & the 40 character message which we can make up or the client can choose their own & of course they get a landing page as well.

You need to think of the Pioneer Advertising Beacon as a light house… A light house sends out its signal to those that want to see it. It doesn’t collect or track anyones information.
