Telling your business’ personal story with Local Rewards and the Broxbourne Guide

It’s not just shops that have been battered by the pandemic. There is a world of freelancers and creatives out there running local businesses who have seen their trade decimated by COVID. If you are in this space, telling your personal story is vital. Here we share inspiration from the Broxbourne Guide, detailing exactly what you need to do to ensure you appear in your Town Guide.

Maybe* has created Local Rewards. It's 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

We all have a part to play in helping businesses recover from the devastating impact of COVID-19. UK consumers are increasingly compelled to shop local and support and protect local businesses, which is one positive we can take from this challenging time. You have a captive audience of customers who want to spend with you and support you and Maybe* can help you get in front of that audience.

Broxbourne’s Local Rewards Guide and Offers

The Broxbourne Local Guide is loaded with local and national businesses in the area. The Guide is choc full of the Instagram content of Broxbourne’s businesses.

Think of the Broxbourne 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 for specialist services. And at the moment with businesses locked down, the guides shine a light on every business and exactly how they are trading through the pandemic.

The wedding industry and all the creatives that play a part in delivering someone’s big day are suffering hard. But Jodie Allen, a Broxbourne photographer, is still showcasing her talents and work via Instagram. What she is also doing by staying active on Instagram is reminding people that she's is human, why she loves what she does and telling her personal story. If you are a business who will play such a big part in a very personal event for someone such as a wedding, your personality and character are a big part of the message you should be sharing.
