Bar Marketing by GoZone WiFi

Smart WiFi Makes Hospitality Marketing Easy For Your Bar and Club

Bars, pubs, taprooms, and clubs have customer congregation built into their purpose—they are literally a “watering hole” where folks can get together, enjoy a drink or two (please drink responsibly), and have a good time. But, if all you get from patrons at the end of the day is their bar tab and a stack of dirty glasses, you’re missing out. You should be getting valuable data from your customers, every time they connect to your free WiFI.

Patrons Expect Free WiFi

People check for WiFi almost immediately upon entering a venue. In fact, 84% of patrons reported that having access to free WiFi is extremely important and influences which restaurants they visit. The same is true for bars and clubs. WiFi Marketing allows your venue to capture customer data through a captive portal login on guest WiFi. Customers login using their email or social profile, adding them to your customer list for marketing.
