Celebrating UK Indie Day using your Local Rewards High Street Guides

The Local Rewards High Street Guides showcase the best businesses in any place at a local and a national level. And with UK Independents' Day taking place over the weekend July 3-4, what better way to promote the local businesses in your place than sharing your High Street Guide.

We all have a part to play in helping the High Street and all businesses recover from the devastating impact of COVID-19. The good news is that UK consumers are increasingly compelled to shop local and support and protect local businesses. You have a captive audience of customers who want to support you, and Local Rewards can help you get in front of those customers all year round.

Maybe* has created Local Rewards. Local Rewards is a nationwide program that increases local spend by connecting shoppers, local businesses and places via social media, transactions and chat. 

Local Rewards connects every UK High Street with:

>  A live local shopping guide that updates automatically

>  A way to reach shoppers when they are nearby 

>  An infrastructure that rewards shoppers for their local spend

Here we share inspiration from the Ashford Town Guide, detailing exactly what you need to do to ensure you appear in your Town Guide.

Ashford’s Local Rewards High Street Guide and offers

The Ashford High Street Guide is loaded with local and national businesses in the area. Think of the Guide as a live and interactive curation of all the social media content showing exactly what the town has to offer shoppers and people looking to support businesses at a local level.

The Guide is choc full of the Instagram content of Ashford’s businesses, both local and national as well as some juicy Local Rewards offers. The High Street Guide not only helps shoppers discover new businesses, but rewards them for their spend locally, and then incentivises them to keep spending locally.

The Beehive in Ashford is offering a free coffee to customers when they buy a cake. Customers can redeem the offer for 10 Local Rewards points. Local Rewards points can be earned by customer spending across Ashford's local businesses.

Every town in the UK has a town Guide which you can access and share now to help customers discover businesses and offers this Independents' Day.

The Local Rewards High Street Guides have been designed to make every business in any UK place be discoverable. In order to appear in your Local High Street Guide or manage your listing you need to sign up to Local Rewards.
