Google Beacon For Businesses

4 replies
I've placed the Google Beacon in several of my clients businesses including bars and restaurants.

What is exact purpose of these? I've seen some locations have activated them somehow and can it will send an alert message when I'm in vicinity. I want to so this for my clients.

Has anyone had experience with them? Please advise.

Thanks in advance my friends.

    There was another thread on this I think. Isn't it basically spamming people's phones via text message?

    I could be wrong...

    But if it is, the fines are expensive. Customers need to have a choice to opt-in, in order to be compliant.

    I'll see if I can find that other thread.

    * here it is. Not a ton of info, but a little.

    There are basically 2 points of communication you can have "from" a beacon. To an APP that is on someones device.. OR through a Google service - such as maps.

    If the Bars etc have an APP.. you can create some pretty cool interactive functionality.. "welcome Back" "do you want to order drinks or look at a food menu first?" "Hey thanks for coming in 10 times this month the first drink is on us - show this screen to your server."

    Her is a guide to get started: https://developers.google.com/beacons/get-started and I hope you have a decent programmer on hand! LOL
