Supporting local High Streets is nothing new to Maybe*. We've been helping local High Streets drive and increase sales and footfall since 2017. In our early days, Maybe* was all about using social media conversations to drive physical visits in place. We built a campaign around the hashtag #WDYT (What Do You Think?).
The #WDYT campaign evolved into the Maybe* platform of today. We might look different, but the goals are still exactly the same. We support local High Streets and their businesses increase sales through social media activity.
Our success in Stafford lead us to develop the Maybe* platform and most recently the Local Rewards module.
In 2020 Maybe* became official Partners of the UK Government High Streets Task Force to which Maybe* supplies the social media data for all town dashboards. We are now working with a wide range of Local Authorities, BIDs and Placemakers across the UK to support high street businesses.
Here's how we got started in Stafford.
