FAQ

 Advertising information:    

 Q. Who are your target audience? 
 A. Our primary target audience is any person with a mobile phone or portable device.  Basically any company    could advertise, and most certainly reach their target audience, at any one of our fantastic locations nationwide. In NZ there are now over 5Million mobile phone connections and iPod customers, which makes it a huge audience for advertisers. Passersby are also attracted to our LCD digital screens and light boxes, making it a double hit.   Ultimately, it depends on the location of these kiosks to determine the demographics of our target audience; for each location we provide advertisers with a full marketing brief, including the demographic of the audience.   If you wish to target a specific audience, we can negotiate to have these kiosks placed in those locations and work with you to roll-out your new advertising campaign.

Q. How effective is this type of Media? 

A. Very effective - it's
non-traditional advertising at it's very best; where the audience are captive for up to 15min. We are adding value by providing a unique and much-needed service (mobile phone charging and disinfecting), first in NZ & Australia. Because patrons see value in our service (we are satisfying an essential consumer need) they do not mind watching the advertising, hence a large coverage resulting in the advertising being very cost effective. The advertising is also viewed by passersby. Furthermore our formats are digital with option for audio, as well as a static light box,  which make this more effective than traditional advertising, which totally relies on impressions and also very easy to change or customise to your requirements. 

Q. How is the advertising or artwork loaded and executed?

A. The digital advertising is loaded on CF or SD memory cards, which is then plugged in the kiosk. All kiosks are equipped with either one of the cards - 256MB. Larger memory cards and hard drive options (80GB) are available. The kiosks do not support flash files, however flash files can be converted to one the supported formats below.
