Managing Mobile In-App Home Ads


For builders, developers, and brokers, generating onsite traffic to their communities and homes is
paramount. To promote and incentivize onsite visitors, the BrightDoor Mobile App leverages both a simple advertising module and location-based service triggers to prompt Mobile App user awareness and a sales response!

There are three types of campaigns:

  • In-App Home ads
  • Beamly Beacon ads
  • Geo-Point ads

The Beamly Beacon and Geo Point campaigns will leverage location-based services for in-app triggers.

 

In-App Home Ad

 

This type of ad will be visible to the user from their home screen via a scrolling display.

The “Tell Me More” button will re-direct the user to an external web link or an in-app area, such as a gallery, listing, or a map.

Beamly Beacon Ad

A micro-location based campaign that targets an external web link or in-app area, such as a gallery, listing, or a map. The location-based trigger is are caused by app detection of an assigned Beamly beacon device.

The Beacon will send a push notification to the mobile app user when they are in close range.

The Push Notification will re-direct the user to a “Call to Action” within the App.

Geo-Point Ad

Setup a Geo-fence around a specific outdoor location, such as an amenity, historical point, featured property. A geo-point campaign can target an external web link or in-app area, such as a gallery, listing, or a map.

It will function the same way as a Beamly Ad – a push notification will be sent and the user will be re-directed to a “Call to Action”.
