"No Photography" is no longer a problem:
The mobile tour guide app can display images at each tour stop. Visitors can click on the "Share Image" icon on the app to save an image that they like to their own phones, send it with their friends and family, or share it on social media -- everything that they would do if they took the picture themselves. Now you can harness the power of photography without jeopardizing your collection.
Share all of your historical images and content:
The mobile app can host an unlimited amount of content -- anything from "just enough" for the casual visitor to "more than enough" for the detail-oriented enthusiast. You can include any number of historical images, portraits, and paintings within each tour stop on the app. Each tour stop can have a "main stop" with general content appropriate for the average listener and a "substop", an additional layer of content, with more detailed history and information.
Integrate with social media:
Visitors can share their experiences through email, Facebook, Instagram, or any other social media platform. These shares can be used to attract new visitors, entice repeat visitors, or promote special events and exhibitions.
Support foreign languages:
You can easily offer your tour in multiple languages -- Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Japanese, or more. This allows you to connect at a more personal level to all of your visitors, no matter where they come from.
Improve your exhibit with analytics:
The app can track your visitor's progress through your space, note which stops they listened to and which they skipped halfway, what they shared or saved, or where they got lost. You can figure out if more visitors downloaded your app in your lobby or from their homes, whether they deleted the app immediately after the tour or waited a few weeks, and if they visited any of your sponsors' pages. With this information at your fingertips, you can improve your exhibit to better suit your visitor's needs.
