How to Set Up Your Mobile AudioTour
At this point let’s assume you have completed step 1: Request AudioTour & step 2: Download Guide (i.e. Guide to Tourbuilder).
Upon submitting a Mobile AudioTour Request Form a Spatial Adventures representative contacted you (or will contact you) to provide a price quote and to answer your questions. Let’s assume you notified your Spatial rep that you’re ready to get started. Your rep then created your audio tour site, obtained a local area code tour phone number, and created your account on the customer web portal. If, in the alternative, you called us (as opposed to submitting a Request Form) and notified the Spatial rep that you’re ready to get started then a similar process occurred and you now have an audio tour site, local area code tour phone number, and an account on the customer web portal.
Content Development (6 steps)
- Write scripts for each stop (i.e. each point of interest on your tour). Recommended duration for a stop is 30 sec - 1min.
- Select method for recording audio - options include recording on a computer using audio s/w, recording at a studio (local colleges will often make their facilities available), recording over the phone using our voice portal, or outsourcing the recording to Spatial Adventures.
- Log onto the customer web portal at https://spatialtour.com and use Tourbuilder to build your tour (e.g. create stops, upload audio to your stops, assign recordings made over the voice portal to your stops, and so forth).
- Record and upload a Welcome (e.g. “Hello and welcome to the Acme mobile phone tour”).
- (Optional) Record and upload an Introduction - the Introduction is played the 1st time a visitor dials into the tour within a 24-hour interval. Depending on the tour complexity, we may advise the recording of tour instructions. In those cases we also provide the instruction script.
- (Conditional) If you are creating a bilingual tour or multi-track tour we provide you with scripts for a small number of custom prompts.
Signage / Brochures
Design and order signage in parallel with content development.
We can generate a sample sign (incorporating your logo, tour phone number, stop number, and a QR code) that you can use as a reference or starting point.
Save on printing costs by incorporating information about the mobile phone tour in your standard brochure. Many venues already include a map in their standard brochure and the mobile phone tour stops can be added to the map.
