You can put up posters, you can advertise it on your website, and you can stand in the student center and hand out flyers. However, none of these options are going to target every student. A campus branded app allows you to create a direct line of communication between the school as well as each individual student. Through a campus app, you are provided with multiple different options to promote events on campus and you can even incentivize students to purchase tickets. So how exactly do we fill up those seats? Let’s get started.
Your most direct line of communication to students is through push messaging. With this feature, you can send notifications directly to the student’s phone notifying them about an upcoming event. For example, ‘Warriors vs. The Dolphins on the field tomorrow! Head to the student center now to get 15% off game tickets!’. This can be used for any size event whether it’s a football game, free food samples, bake sale, or whatever else your campus has going on. In addition, you can also choose how to notify the students. If you don’t want your notification to show up directly on the student’s phone, you can just send the message directly to their app inbox for them to open. This will ensure that students don’t consider your messages ‘spam’, and will loop them back to your app.
Another great way to promote events on campus is to include tickets and vouchers in your rewards store! When students complete certain actions on the app, (i.e. mobile ordering, opening messages) they earn points. These points can then be redeemed for prizes in your rewards store. These prizes can include event tickets to sports games, concerts, or even VIP experiences at an event to build more interest. With Hangry’s Campus Branded App your options are endless; you can offer a large amount of different tickets in the rewards store, or offer one set of tickets for students to enter in to win, the choice is yours.
Loyalty Program/Mobile Ordering
Every feature in your campus branded app complements the other. This means that any feature can be used to promote or market another feature. For example, promoting events on your app can be used to increase the use of mobile ordering on campus. When a student uses the mobile ordering feature, they earn points. This can be through ordering twice in one day, re-ordering, super sizing and so much more. Once they earn points, they can use these points to enter to win event tickets in your rewards store. This will allow every student who has your app to see the event tickets being offered, and will increase mobile ordering traffic.
