INTRODUCING THE NEW KINGFISHER MEDIA APPS
There are more than 6 million iPhone users in the United Kingdom, and many of them will be near you! The Kingfisher Media Apps are designed to help drive visitors to your business and, as an advertiser in one of our beautiful visitor guides, you’ll get the substantial benefit of a presence on our App free of charge.
If you’ve got an iPhone you’ll already know the benefits of using smartphone technology – if you haven’t, below is a quick guide to how it can work to benefit your business.
What is an App?
An App is simply a computer programme which you use on a smartphone. It’s shorthand for Application and can be easily downloaded onto your phone. Once downloaded, it can be used any time and without an internet connection.
Who uses Apps?
More than 6 million people in the UK use iPhones and download Apps. Nearly 50 million were sold in Europe last year alone.
What can you do with Apps on an iPhone?
Apps for mobile phones open up a whole new world, allowing users to access information on demand at the push of a button. Find nearby restaurants or hotels, get directions to where you want to go, find local attractions, pubs or theatres, get train and airline timetables – in fact, almost anything that you can find on the internet.
How will the Kingfisher Media App benefit me?
Hundreds of thousands of people will visit your area every year, and they’re looking for places to eat, drink, visit, shop etc. Our advertisers will get a free entry on this App, which will include an editorial write-up about your business, automatic links to your website, phone number, e-mail address – it will even give visitors directions to you and tell them how to get there! And remember, it’s all free of charge for advertisers in our guides.
How can I take advantage of your offer of a free entry on the App?
Advertisers in our visitor guides are entitled to a free entry on our App. Our beautiful hardback books are placed in the bedrooms of the area’s leading hotels, remaining there for a full year and reaching hundreds of thousands of hotel guests. They’re an invaluable guide to the area and can help drive visitors to your business. To see the benefits of advertising with us, go to www.kingfishermedia.co.uk/testimonials to see comments from some of our regular advertisers.
Are there any other benefits to my business?
Yes there are. There’s an Offers section on the App which you can utilise to advertise any special offers you may be offering, either short or long-term. Call our Commercial Director, Ian Heads, on 0191 482 7405 for details.
