Step 1: Create your own exclusive channel in minutes

With Close® you can easily start a communication channel for your brand or event that will be instantly available for both iOS and Android via the Close® App

In the Close® Builder you can add your own designs, color schemes and branding. It's yours, so you determine the tone of voice, messaging frequency, timing and of course content

Ticket & Activation

Step 2: Are you selling tickets? It’s the perfect hook to welcome ticket buyers to your channel!

  • Close® links with major ticketeers to activate ticket buyers right at the delightful moment of purchasing tickets for your event
  • All you need to ask is their Phone Number and Close will offer them the chance to enter your channel
  • After Phone Verification, Tickets are shown digitally in-app with artworks and information. They can be scanned with your existing scanners.
  • Ticket buyers can share tickets by inviting their friends and family to the channel. As an organizer, you are now in the position to communicate with all of them!
Ticket & Activation

Not selling tickets? Ask your audience to register or provide them with QR codes for easy access!

  • With Close® you can setup a simple online registration page for your channel, allowing you to explain the benefits and ask for their Phone Number. If needed more data points such as Name, Company, Email address etc can be asked. Remember: less is more.
  • Even more smooth are our unique links and QR codes, which are generated automatically for you to share with your audience. Whether it’s online in a banner or on site on a sticker, these things make your audience onboard in seconds.
Crowd Control

Step 3: Keep all your visitors informed through chat-based communication

  • Once your audience has joined, you are able to send messages to all or segments of your audiences. Being a mobile app, your messages result in push notifications to ask for attention
  • Add media such as video, photo galleries or web links to strengthen your communication
  • Display important messages in the 'Info Tab' to facilitate having all information in one place
  • All messages can be pre-programmed in our Automation tool
  • If there is an urgent matter, you can also send live messages directly

Smart
Automation

To make your communication personal yet scalable, all messages can be automated based on triggers. We help you set up and share our best practices.

Time

Trigger messages at fixed moments, relative to an event date or in certain time spans. Manage intervals between messages that feel natural and make sure your audience is activated at the right moment.

Location

Trigger messages at certain locations. Thanks to our geo fencing technology you can set a radius around your event location and know when a visitor entered or left. In combination with the Time trigger you can for example send a message when a visitor is 'too early' + 'at your venue'.

Actions

Trigger messages after certain actions of users such as when a visitor joins the chat, invites a friend, completes a group, is the 10.000' visitor or has interacted with your message. These triggers make you hit home and probably result in a smile or surprise.

Input

Trigger messages based on data input such as ticket information, storage values or answers on surveys. This makes your messages even more personal and relevant.
Rich Messaging

Step 4: Use rich chat features to truly interact

  • Be creative with rich content to enhance the experience before, during and after the event. E.g. Backstage video’s, photo galleries, camera filters, programs, live streams and more
  • Peer-to-peer communication is private, but with interactive messages you can ask users questions. Close® offers button surveys, single- or multiple choice, text boxes or sliders so you get insights and new data points. With automated messaging, your audience is provided with direct responses that are tailored to their answer(s).

  • Product offers can be displayed in the Chat or Info Tab with additional information, product variants and amounts
  • After purchases, automatically inform buyers through mobile messaging about purchase details and delivery
