Who loves to travel? I bet a lot of you do! It seems we will be free to travel again soon. Free to get on a plane or take a drive to meet a customer, or to go somewhere you have never been. But before we take off, let’s take a look at some of my favorite travel hacks.
More and more people prefer spending using mobile wallets instead of cash or plastic. The desire for contactless payments is turning out to be a surging tide and all mobile wallets — with Apple Pay substantially ahead of the pack — are benefiting from this trend.
People have always traveled, and tourism is now one of the biggest industries globally. People go to towns, beaches, or mountains for leisure and vacations. To relax and relieve stress. Europe is a destination for tourism and attracts tourists from all over the world. Europe accounts for half of the world’s international arrivals, and five out of the world’s top ten destinations are in Europe. No, today’s article isn’t about the two “just tourists” admiring the beauties of towns upon Avon and the White Carpathians nature park landscape. I’d rather look into what helps you to quench travelers’ curiosity in the digital age.
This story began back in 1996. Geert-Jan Bruinsma, a tech guy with an entrepreneurial spirit, wanted to bring together Dutch travelers and the places they wanted to stay with the help of online booking service. His little start-up grew steadily in its first few years. Therefore, it was acquired by a bigger company nine years later.
The German FlixMobility is a rapidly growing technology company that has become a leading European mobility platform. It enables people to get from A to B comfortably, quickly, and affordably by green FlixBus long-distance buses. Everyone probably knows them by now. They basically changed the way millions of people travel in Europe in less than seven years.
While the whole mobile marketing is relatively new, the idea of a mobile wallet as a marketing and loyalty platform is even newer. And there are some misconceptions out there about it. Here are a few myths that you might have heard. And let’s shed some light on them.
The way we pay for food and beverages is changing. Many people don’t bring wallets out with them anymore. But they always bring their phones. Cafés and restaurants are adopting mobile payments. People are more and more comfortable with paying by mobile phones or even watches at the table or counter, with online ordering as well as paying on the go before visiting your place.
Apple Pay was designed to replace our leather wallets. And Apple is well on its way to doing just that. In today’s world, Apple Pay is truly one of the best ways to shop online and in person, and is much more secure than cards or cash. It is a secure and easy way for people to make purchases in stores, in apps, and on the web.
Small businesses will have trouble gaining any exposure in their very competitive markets without proper marketing. Art galleries and museums are in no different situation. Marketing your art gallery or museum is essential to raise awareness of your business and to attract your audience. Furthermore, people change the ways they view or even buy art. So if you run such an art gallery or a museum, you want to keep up with the evolving environment, right?
Think about the last time you sat around and excitedly answered a 30-minute questionnaire. I don’t think it has ever happened. Surveys are the bread and butter of getting feedback. If you want to get quality answers from your customers, it is critical to ask only a few key questions. Keep your surveys short and relevant.
Customer satisfaction is one of the few levers small businesses can pull to differentiate themselves in competitive marketplaces. The best customer experience usually wins. That’s why customer satisfaction surveys matter.
So you think you should just develop your custom mobile app to reach zillions of users, make big money, and become famous? Well, today, I would like to address why you just should not do exactly this.
Nobody wants to fill out forms. Emails go often straight to the trash. The subscription process has to be easy. These are the thoughts that went through my mind while I was writing my first blog post earlier this year. So I created a digital subscription card for the mobile wallet.
