Near Field Communication (NFC) is the future of mobile marketing and all major phone manufacturers are adding the technology to their devices.
Businesses will soon be able to use NFC Chips to take payment for goods by allowing customers to place their mobile on a scanner.
Take a look below to see how TextBlue can use NFC to benefit your business:
- Estate Agents and Housebuilding Firms etc. – You can add NFC chips to For Sale signs so that when people walk past them they automatically get a request to download the relevant information. Not only is this a great way of reaching out to passers-by, it ensure that, if your sales office is closed, potential customers can still get access to all the information they need. Estate Agents can also place QR-Codes onto For Sales, which potential customers can scan in to find out more information. Visit the QR-Code section to find out more.
- Shopping Centres –Shopping Centres can use Near Field Communication to allow customers to pay for products using their phones. However, they can also be placed in price stickers, throughout the store, giving access to discounts and further information. Shopping Centres can also benefit from Bluetooth Advertising. Visit the Bluetooth Advertising section for more information.
- Taxi Companies – Taxi Companies can use Near Field Communication to allow passengers to pay fares using their phones. Also, by placing an NFC chip into the vehicle, passengers can automatically be sent an advertising message. The latter of these benefits also applies to Wi-Fi advertising. Visit the Wi-Fi Marketing section for more information.
- Hairdressers, Beauty Salons, etc – Hairdressers can benefit from Near Field Communication, by placing NFC chips into the window. Then, when customers walk past the salon, they will automatically be asked whether or not they wish to see the price list or information about the different hair styles you can provide. Hairdressers can also benefit from Bluetooth Advertising, which can be used to send content to phones that come near the salon. Visit the Bluetooth Advertising section for more information.
