2. Out of Home Advertising
Enhance traditional printed media with the interactivity of NFC. NFC Smart Posters allow customers to download mobile vouchers, access local information, ‘like’ and ‘follow’ on social media or even purchase products by simply tapping their phone ! NFC Smart Posters are created by attaching a visible NFC tag to the front of the poster or applying a hidden NFC tag to the reverse of the poster, aligned to an NFC graphic or call to action.
3. Interactive Events
Supply each guest with an individually programmed NFC tag and offer a seamless experience. Each NFC tag acts as an ID chip and can be used for access control, registering interest and creating unique experiences. Better still each interaction can be logged via a mobile app so there is no need for expensive hardware or infrastructure. NFC tags are available in a range of event friendly formats such as NFC wristbands, access cards and badges.
4. Tourist Trails and Treasure Hunts
Place NFC tags at different points of interest, providing location specific information and content when they are scanned. A great example is the South Downs Way National Park, who have used NFC enabled sign posts to help visitors better explore their surroundings. This same logic can also be applied to treasure hunts, simply place an NFC tag at each location and log each ‘find’ via a mobile or web app.
5. Keep Customers Engaged with Dynamic Content
Just because an NFC tag is encoded to the same web address it doesn’t mean your content has to stay the same ! Regularly update promotions and information to encourage repeat scans of your NFC marketing. NFC tags are available in a large range of promotional products and include everything from NFC fridge magnets and window stickers through to NFC pens and even beer mats.
