My name is Ladislav Poledna and I’m a part-time blogger 😎. I publish my stories on mobile marketing that is no longer an innovation but a part of our daily decisions as mobile phones are becoming the main screen in our lives. I started Become Digital in May 2019 and since then I have added over 40 articles. I have built my career around developing successful relationships with customers in multiple industries for the past two decades. Recently, together with my friend, I co-founded Digikupon – a mobile marketing platform that enables businesses to create custom digital content, deliver it to the customers’ mobile wallets, and to show up on their lock screen with brilliant messages in the exact moments they need them.

In the Apple Wallet or selected Android wallets. With about 10 million residents, Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the United States. All the vaccines are formally tracked in the government registries anyway. And people are given paper confirmations.

Of course, I am familiar with paper entry tickets that have probably got the number, your logo, and a few other details on them. But that is all that they can, right? And it is hard to sell them online. In one of my last summer articles, I was writing that art galleries might want to come up with something new and find new ways to engage with visitors. Now, it is time to get rid of dull paper entry tickets once and for all and cut through the noise. But people love to buy stuff online, and this is not going to change. They also prefer shopping online for your digital single-entry passes or digital season passes. They canContinue Reading

This story began back in 1996. Geert-Jan Bruinsma, a tech guy with an entrepreneurial spirit, wanted to bring together Dutch travelers and the places they wanted to stay with the help of online booking service.

Booking.com has grown from a small start-up to one of the world’s leading digital travel companies. By using the technology that helps take the friction out of travel, they seamlessly connect millions of travelers with places to stay – making it easier forContinue Reading
