Using your Local Rewards High Street Guide to land your safety measures

The Local Rewards High Street Guides showcase the best businesses in any place at a local and a national level. Being active on social media on a regular basis means that your business appears in the Local High Street Guide, and as a result, will always feature your most up-to-date information. With the High Street and its businesses now open for business, it's time to both reassure customers it's safe and inspire them to head back into your stores. Now is the time to share your business, your positivity and your excitement and get your business at the front of customers' minds.

We all have a part to play in helping businesses recover from the devastating impact of COVID-19. The good news is that consumers are increasingly compelled to shop local and support and protect local businesses. This means you have a captive audience of customers who want to support you. Plus you have Maybe* at your fingertips which can help you get in front of that audience.

Maybe* has created Local Rewards. It 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 Selby Local Rewards High Street Guide, detailing exactly what you need to do to ensure your business appears.

Selby’s Local Rewards High Street Guide and Offers

The Selby Guide is loaded with local and national businesses in the area. The Guide is choc full of the Instagram content from Selby’s businesses, targeting local and national customers.

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 for specialist services. 

Selby's local businesses are re-open for business, including its pubs and restaurants with outdoor seating! Asking people to keep their distance need not be an abrupt affair. Take a lead out of The Painting Pot's book and use social media to clearly articulate your safety measures in a welcoming way.

Businesses can use Instagram, create bespoke Local Rewards for shoppers or simply update their opening hours and safety measures in the Selby High Street Guide.
