How are you getting guest contact info?

One of the most important steps of marketing your venue is acquiring your guests contact information so you can send them information on new menu items or upcoming events and other things going on in your venue to get them to come in. If your primary source of gathering your audience is Facebook likes on your page.  You may be shooting yourself in the foot.  Let me explain a little. Studies have shown that Facebook’s algorithm, without surprise, is focused on getting you to pay to promote posts on your page for your fans to see.  If you post a status update, photo or video without paying for promotion, most of your fans may not even see it.  Of course, this depends on interactions (likes and comments) on the post too. It’s a marketing nightmare to have to craftfully design your updates, post at the right time of day, make it look professional, not be too wordy, and then hope someone sees it.  You’re basically crossing your fingers at this point and praying to the social media gods to bless your post. Even if you do post updates properly or pay to promote them, you’re still not getting your fans contact information.  They are only a like on your page and Facebook knows their information.  Facebook maintains control over your fans relationship to your venue. JukeVision naturally acquires your guests contact information when they check into your jukebox.  JukeVision users still have full control at any time to opt-out of this within our app and of course from your email unsubscribe link.

Jukeboxes haven’t changed much since they were invented around the 1890’s.  The biggest changes to happen to jukeboxes were necessary because of the medium music was available on at the time.  Starting with paper rolls and metal discs in the very early years, upgrading to loudspeakers and record players organized in creative orientations to allow more selections for a patron to play.  Over the years, better automation technology was invented to allow for larger libraries of records in a jukebox to be available to play. The most recent and notable advancement to jukeboxes have been a computer and the internet.  By using large capacity hard drives to store the music in digital form in a computer that was hooked up to the internet and combined with a touch screen for the patron to choose their music, jukeboxes have evolved into more of a personal music player...
