  • Ask the audience about the sources of topics.
  • Helpful articles do best!
  • There’s the technology – and then there’s the content. You can’t have one without the other, and BOTH provide value to the user … but with technology changing on the daily (and the countless event apps on the market, with tech differences), content needs to be the focus.
  • Access – technology/features selection; sign-up/password providing; various devices/versionsAwareness – pre-event promotion: email, social, blog posts, contestsIncentives – my dad has always said: America will do anything for a free t-shirt; from Starbucks gift cards to candy to iPad minis – greed beats allEvent Integration – branding; messaging; uniformity; sponsors/exhibitors/speakers; we’re a partner or we’re white labeledAudience Focus – charger; think about event/experience from attendee perspective; real-time content updatesOn-Site Support – App Experts for troubleshooting; content management/moderation of app/Twitter in real-time; promotion/contests on-site
  • Our app partner, DoubleDutch claims the CMW 2012 app had the most pre-event engagement EVER. And here’s proof from during the event. 73% download rate; 4,000 comments by 866 attendees; storyteller contest (discover your story) – Rock star contests (amplify your story)

    32. 32. Proof from 2012 The charging station: modern watering hole FYI @FLIRTcomm - I didn't even break open the printed conference guide today. I didn't need to. Everything I need was nicely accessible through the app. THAT's a killer conference app! I'm only one session in and agonizing about which track to attend. I'm counting on all you other people to update me on the best bits from the others! So glad I got to connect with swing dancers, yogis, and other great and creative people! FLIRT App Team, I love the awesome features in the app. This will be great for networking at CMWorld. Wow! Just found out that the #cmworld app not only rocks the iPhone...it's sweeeeet on the iPad too! Is it possible I'm more excited for day two of #CMWorld than I was for day two? Why, yes it is. Looking forward to another day of sessions. Tearful conclusion. Totally worth the price of admission. Thanks Marcus for hitting it home. Love the attention to detail and orange-ness put together by team cmi. from the food, to the signs, to the conference content. super! Guess who just won an Amazon gift card courtesy of #CMW? This gal!
