Yes, construction can be a real pain when you are sitting in traffic, trying to find parking, or when you are running a business nearby. It can be difficult to navigate but construction is a necessary part of growth. A Bandwango passport can effectively increase foot traffic to local businesses during this time of growth.

Creating a positive visitor experience is a large part of a successful business. Not only will a positive impression bring back local customers, but they might tell their friends and family about that experience. They may also leave a positive review, getting the word out even more. The need to treat every customer with respect and show their value goes beyond just that one customer as customers have the ability to make or break a business’s reputation.

With anything in business, there are challenges to creating a positive customer experience. While there are some things that you can control to make a positive experience for your visitors, a lot of the time it is out of your hands. Crowded parking lots, long lines, and difficulty navigating the area are just a few examples of things that impact an experience. Construction can be the cause of a lot of these and of course, it is not always avoidable. A great way to combat the impact of these things for your organization is by creating a Bandwango digital experience passport.

Bandwango digital passports bring together merchants and house deals, discounts, and challenges through check-ins at local establishments. You have options when creating a Bandwango passport: A check-in challenge for instance will reward your passholders the more establishments they visit. A savings pass is a great way to offer exclusive discounts at stores and restaurants in your area. Then of course there is a paid attraction and tasting passes, these are great for wineries, distilleries, and attractions.
