Every size business or iconic brand offers a guest WiFi hotspot amenity to attract users to hang-out in their storefront, guest lounge or pop up retail experience. The use of WiFi captive portal technology is not new.
Advanced cloud technologies, networking and security made what used to be an extension of providing network access into an incredible channel for subscriber growth, data and insights for businesses and iconic brands.
This guide will walk you through what is new and unique about WiFi captive portals from GoGoGuest and how your business and iconic brand can use it to restore, reopen and grow your business.
GoGoGuest designed and developed captive portals as your gateway to a beautiful and long-lasting relationship, customer by customer.
7 Reasons Your Business Needs A WiFi Captive Portal
Every astute business owner, brand manager and marketer focused on restoring and growing their business or brand should learn and know about the benefits of WiFi captive portals. GoGoGuest designed and developed captive portals as your gateway to a beautiful and long-lasting relationship, customer by customer.
We go over these features and benefits extensively during a scheduled demo.
- Enforce your guest WiFi policy without the hassle. We designed our WiFi captive portals as a handshake between your business or brand and the user. We believe it is a business’ commitment to provide a safe, highly sanitized and clean space with fast reliable guest WiFi. Meanwhile, for guests to gain access, they will provide a unique personal identification, make a purchase (optional feature) and abide by the terms of service and your policy.
- Require a purchase with every connection. This advance captive portal feature from GoGoGuest is optional. We understand that not every business or iconic brand want to require a purchase before a guest is able to join your fast premium guest WiFi. For those who are sensitive to the cost of real-estate, maintaining a safe and highly sanitized dine-in or seat-in space and the other resources you need to keep guests happy, requiring a purchase to access guest WiFi within a specific time-limit is an option. These are available as one-click integrations for Square, Toast Lab, Revel, Clover and any other cloud POS technology with a well-maintained API.
- Start growing your community. Every business and brand with the foresight to connect and understand their customers beyond a transaction in today’s environment – wins. With people being cooped up for too long in their homes, many are craving the need to be in a communal space and engage with fellow humans from a safe distance. A WiFi captive portal with the proper controls and policies in place will help manage the flow of people in and out of dine-in or seat-in areas.
- Activate and engage your audience. Advanced captive portal technology comes with a built-in premium customer marketing and data, insights platform. With GoGoGuest, this means you can send email marketing content to ask your customers about their visit, offer a reward or invite them to brunch the following weekend.
- Learn from data and insights. With access to active and inactive data and insights at your finger tips, learning about your your customers is simpler and easier for every business and iconic brand.
- Access to an ecosystem of integrations. Advance captive portal technologies offer third-party integrations to enable businesses and iconic brands keep their data and audience engagement in one place. Why subscribe to separate solutions for WiFi, email marketing, data and insights and POS integrations when you can pay one simple subscription?
