Make your business discoverable during lockdown with Maybe* and Local Rewards

We all have a part to play in helping the UK High Street recover from the devastating impact of COVID-19. But with the virus infiltrating our communities it's been encouraging to see people rallying around their homes and increasingly compelled to shop local and support and protect local businesses. It's one thing having a captive audience, but knowing how to sell to them is a whole other story. That's where Maybe* comes in. We're here to help you get your product or services in front of your local audience.

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 Kings Lynn Town Guide, detailing exactly what you need to do to ensure you appear in your Town Guide.

Kings Lynn’s Local Rewards Guide and Offers

The Kings Lynn Guide is loaded with local and national businesses in the area. The guide is packed full with the Instagram content of Kings Lynn’s businesses.

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. At the moment with businesses locked down, the guides shine a light on every business, and detail exactly how they are trading through the pandemic, making shopping with them easy and clear.

Soul Cafe and Restaurant may be locked down, but the Kings Lynn eatery is still cooking up a storm as its Instagram content shows. As a result of staying connected and active on Instagram, the business’ takeaway Valentine’s offering is discoverable to everyone in Kings Lynn.

How to ensure your business appears in the Local Guide

The Local Rewards Town Guides have been designed to make every business in any UK place discoverable. In order to appear in your Local Town Guide you need to do two things.

1) Register your business on Google My Business so our magic tech can find you and list your business in the Town Guide.

2) Ensure you are on Instagram and actively creating content.

Google My Business powers the Local Guides listings, and Instagram ensures the Guides have glorious, up to date content to showcase your business and what you have to offer.

The Maybe* platform powers Local Rewards and helps businesses use social media to sell.

We all have a part to play in helping our High Streets recover from the COVID pandemic. Get involved during Lockdown, contribute to your Local Guide and be ready to reopen!
