Newsfeed Ad: this is displayed to every Bloc user within a 10 mile radius of the venue. The advert is placed in the users main newsfeed. Users can check-in directly via this ad and is a great way to showcase a venue with location based advertising.

Stardom: Porky’s Wine Bar displays as a featured venue on our interactive map with a star instead of our Bloc logo. This differentiates it from the competition in a highly competitive area. This increases clicks to their venue by over 50%.

Top of Events: When a user searches for venues to check-in to on a specific date, Porky’s Wine Bar appears at the top of the events list. Venues featured at the top get clicked on first, which is an advantage over the local competition.
