Import Content Case Study
By being part of the Snapr ecosystem Artspot was able to launch with a colorful array of art based content from day one.
Artspot used a base of images from Snapr tagged with #art, #streetart, and #sculpture to kickstart their app and community.
This made a rich landscape of local art based content available to those crucial first users of the app.
Note that apps and users may opt out from having their content imported by other apps.
Manage Content Case Study
Tourism New Zealand used images from Capture the Flag to showcase real peoples experiences in New Zealand via a Facebook App.
It was important that only tourism focussed images were shown, and also that the highest quality images would display for any area.
Snapr's system for managing content made it easy for Tourism New Zealand's marketing team to select images to feature in their app, and also to set varying ratings for images so the most stunning shots would automatically be foregrounded.
Ad Placements Case Study
Moa Beer used ad placements in Capture the Flag to promote a photo competition to people in their team.
Small banners opened out to full screen mobile optimised ads.
By offering weekly prizes and cross promoting on Facebook and Twitter Moa garnered a strong fanbase.
The most enthusiastic users shot hundreds of photos. Many people shared photos of Moa branding, and shots where they featured Moa product.
Snapr's ad system makes it possible to include ads at specific venues, and also to display ads on pages for certain user groups.
Local Deals Case Study
In Capture the Flag people pick a team, then as they shoot photos in their favourite places they can ‘capture’ them..
BurgerFuel created a team called ‘Hambo’ and offered deals at their restaurants nationwide (New Zealand).
Members of team Hambo could claim a free drink with any burger purchase.
Game mechanics also came into play - the team that had ‘captured’ the current Burgerfuel location could also claim free fries with their burger.
