LinkNYC has placed 1,399 of its Wi-Fi kiosks across New York City almost two years after its launch. The stations were placed around the city near transit stops and businesses, replacing old telephone booths.
Business owners with kiosks in front of their stores in Jamaica have been using the advertising capabilities of LinkNYC to boost customer traffic and profits since their release.
“We are excited to work with the Jamaica BID and local small businesses to give them the opportunity to advertise on Links,” said Ruth Fasoldt, the community affairs manager for LinkNYC. “Local ads run on two 55-inch digital displays on the Link closest to each business. Over 15 businesses along Jamaica Ave have participated thus far and we have gotten great feedback.”
LinkNYC Wi-Fi can bring free services like phone calls and wireless web access to the city because of its paid advertising program. Its latest efforts citywide allow for business owners to advertise on booths closer to their area.
