How Star by Hackney Downs Is Using Bloc Advertising

Bloc is the only pay-per-result advertising platform that works using geo-location. A venue is only charged if someone actually attends their venue, making it risk-free and budget friendly.

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: Star by Hackney Downs 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, Star by Hackney Downs 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.
