Generate Revenue with Event App Sponsor Features

Posted by Matt Milloway on Dec 11, 2012

AppBurst-developed mobile event apps offer an impressive collection of sponsor features to help generate revenue for your company or organization. Many of our clients pay for the cost of development and even turn the mobile app into a profit center through the use of strategically placed banner ads, takeover graphics, splash pages, and devoted sponsor pages. Push messaging also enables sponsors to communicate with attendees in real time.

Check out the examples below to learn about the variety of sponsor features available for your next iPad event app, iPhone event app, and Android event app: 

The use of a banner ad bar provides a subtle space to include various sponsors and generate additional revenue in your event app. Choose an ad bar promoting one sponsor, split the area into quadrants as shown above, or even utilize a rotating ad bar for multiple sponsors to use the entire banner area for brand placement. The banner bar is also interactive, as users who tap on a logo will be taken to the company or organization's web page via a built in web browser. 

In addition to banner ads at the bottom of the app, dedicated sponsor pages allow for additional branding. Split a page into quadrants or even give each sponsor a dedicated page in the app, which can load PDF brochures, webpages, or both. 

Allow select sponsors to stand out from the crowd in your event app's interactive exhibitor map by color coding sponsor booths. Other exhibitor upgrades include an "additional info" link, which can take users to a full page ad or webpage from the sponsor. 

Real-time push messages are a powerful tool for sponsors, as companies and organizations can have timely alerts sent to attendees regarding promotions, demonstrations, and new products. Learn how to use push messaging in event apps to generate revenue.
