Picture gallery - When each image is selected a user will see the image on a full screen. There is also an option to add text.
Text area - A text box where you can give information about who you are and what you do. Any text written WILL be automatically picked up by the Apps search button.
Facilities option - There is an option to add all of your facilities. This lets people know if you have disabled access, are dog friendly or whether your cafe has gluten free dishes on the menu. These facilities WILL be picked up by the Apps search button.
Social media links - You can also add any social media links that you have.
Push Notifications - A push notification is a message that pops up on a mobile phone/tablets screen to alert a person about a variety of topics. Send out notifications to users letting them know about important information. Draw attention to fund-raising events, special offers, meetings, dish of the day, discounts etc. The message is only delivered to people that have installed the Whitehaven Appsolutely App but the App doesn’t need to be running for the message to be received. If the phone/tablet is not currently connected to the internet or has been switched off then the message would be delivered as soon as the phone/tablet connects or is switched on. There is a section on the portal for creating and sending these messages which can be scheduled to either be sent straight away or at a later date allowing you to choose a date when you want people to be notified.
Social Media - We will promote your organisation using our Social Media pages. We will create a post to let people know that your establishment has an upgraded listing and add a screen shot of your page. With your permission we will regularly post about your establishment. All you have to do is give us an idea what you want to be posted and we can either take the information/images from your listing or send us information/images and we will take care of the rest.
DON'T FORGET - When the App is downloaded the information that you put on your upgrade is stored on the App meaning people can access the information EVEN WHEN THERE IS NO WI-FI CONNECTION. Meaning you are ALWAYS CONNECTED TO YOUR CUSTOMERS.
Would you struggle to find the time to upgrade your listing?
Let us do it for you. To save you time we can add you to an upgraded listing. All you need to do is send us your logo, pictures & text information or we will search the internet and gather information from your website/social media pages for you. We will then create a draft and email it to you allowing you to see how you will look on the App. If you are happy with the design we will then publish it onto the App.
We can add/update your information thereafter, just send us the information.
