Parks & Gardens: Keep visitors engaged year-round, outside with mobile solutions.
 

Outdoor venues often have difficulty communicating with visitors with large, spread out areas where docents or park guides can't be. Guide by Cell offers very specific tools for engaging with visitors or employees regardless of locational access. Use mobile solutions to orient, give tours, or disseminate important information. Here are some of the ways Guide by Cell can help:

  • Event Communication

    Stay connected with your visitors and send instant updates with text messages, no matter their location in the park or signal strength.

  • Exhibit Guides and Mobile Tours

    Allow your visitors to take the adventure into their own hands and create their own tour with exhibit information on their mobile devices.

  • Ticketing

    Allow guests to purchase tickets on the fly on their mobile devices and use paperless tickets for general admission, special events and exhibits.

  • Interactive Games

    Let your guests become engaged with your exhibits with interactive mobile web or text message based games.

    Garden Grows Engagement Through Text Messaging

    When you have a large area to cover that’s not indoors, what’s the best way to engage with your audience? For The New York Botanical Garden and their 250 acre space, sending out text alerts through Guide by Cell’s text platform has had a bewitching effect on their Haunted Pumpkin Garden event.

    During this year’s annual Fall event, which features giant pumpkins and live-pumpkin carving, the NYBG team decided to try a text-in giveaway of a "carvling" by artist Ray Villafane.

    “We knew that we wanted to expand and engage with our audience,” said Joanna Groarke. “This contest provided us gave us a way not only to promote but engage with our guests before and during the event.”

    Signs went up all over the garden, promoting the keyword and the contest, as well as  Grand Central Terminal on the Friday before the event. The result was well over 200 subscribers who received reminders and updates during the evening, as well as one lucky winner of Villafane’s carvling.

    “We’re always looking for new ways to engage,"  said Groarke. " This is a simple way to use the technology everyone already has and was just what we needed to connect with our audience.”
