As we learned during Apple’s announcement on September 9, Apple is putting Passbook at the center of its Apple Pay system. This will make Passbook one of the most frequently used apps on every iPhone and dramatically increase the need for marketers to make sure their branded content (offers, coupons, loyalty cards, etc.) is sitting right there alongside the credit credits in Passbook.
This significant change posed several questions for marketers everywhere. What is the marketing opportunity with Apple Pay and Passbook? What does the convergence of payment and nonpayment features mean for my brand? With the top-tier brands Apple has on board with Apple Pay, Apple Pay is sure to have a significant impact on how we make payments in the future.
In the past year alone, there has been a 1,400 percent increase Passbook Pass installs from across Vibes’ retail clients running Passbook campaigns.
In this webinar, John Haro and Julie Novack of Vibes will discuss what marketers can take away from how Passbook and Apple Pay will impact the mobile landscape. Participants will learn the following from this webinar:
- Five key takeaways for marketers on the new Passbook and Apple Pay
- Best practices in how to run a successful Passbook campaign
