Everyone likes to read a review when deciding where to eat, where to shop and where to stay. Imagine if they had your best reviews at their fingertips, at the exact time they need it. Give passers by a link to your Trip Advisor, press review or other endorsements, and make it easier for them to make the decision to walk though your door.
Where to put the beacon: Stick it in your restaurant/hotel window, on your billboard sign for maximum effect.
If someone stops you in the street to give you a flyer, it's normally to promote something nearby - Show.io is the digital equivalent. Give buyers a quick link to the exact page on your website so they have the information they need to make a purchase or find out more.

The benefits of the Physical Web truly shine when it comes to sharing information, avoiding the usual hunt-and-peck. As well as providing quick links to information buried deep in your website, you can link to any other document with a URL - such as a PDF menu, Google Form, coupon, photo gallery, a YouTube video or a link to your App..the list goes on and on.
Where to put your beacon: Stick it anywhere you want to get a specific message across, such as in a meeting room, car for sale, a billboard or building entrance.
With Show.io you can use a personal beacon to share links with those nearby. At a conference or meeting this could be your LinkedIn profile, a presentation on SlideShare or a link to your blog or twitter. A museum guide can link to a page profiling their expertise, a Health & Safety officer can link to relevant pdf documents on a busy building site. Beacons can also act as excellent ice-breakers for any social gathering!
Where to put your beacon: Clip it to your belt, attach to your keychain, or carry it in your briefcase or bag.
