A champion of small and independent shops is encouraging local organisations to interact more in the community through their newly
re-launched website, liveshoplocal.co.uk .
Live Shop Local is one of the UK’s most influential online small business promoters. It has revealed its hotly anticipated website re-launch this week, making it easier for local consumers to connect with shops and businesses in their area.
Highlighting special offers and local deals from independent shops and small businesses, Live Shop Local aims to bring amazing, niche and unique products or experiences to a wider audience. Shoppers can browse with a smile, safe in the knowledge that they are supporting their community and strengthening the local economy.
The vast range of deals and special offers mean there is something for everyone, from student to house-wife, enthusiastic foodie to bride to be. All the offers collated are unique to the business, location and category, and due to the site’s popularity, may have an expiry time, so get clicking.
Lee McPherson, Founder of Live Shop Local said, “We couldn’t be happier with our new look website which is an important milestone in the development of Live Shop Local. Community reaction has been brilliant and our collection of deals just gets better and better. Past offers include a £25 discount on a one-night stay at a local hotel, or 10% discount on a Friday at a local hairdresser. As well as standard offers, there is a wide selection of gorgeous gifts and ideas for special occasions such as ‘Build your own celebration cakes’.”
Brand spanking new website features include a cool new mapping system that whittles down nearby independent shops and small businesses in a matter of seconds. From simply punching in “coffee shop”, the system quickly determines the users location and throws up nearby participating independent cafés to tickle the taste buds in nothing more than the blink of an eye.
Small businesses owners can also use the new site as a helping hand by promoting their businesses through an easy to use Profile Creator tool. A swish campaign monitoring system with analytical tools is also available to use so owners and managers can track the success of their campaign, gain strategic understanding into what works and what doesn’t and tailor their campaigns accordingly to keep business booming.
Live Shop Local’s ground-breaking work means the site is well on its way to being established as one of the most influential supporters and promoters of small businesses in the UK. Passionate about local businesses that provide excellent customer service and a unique shopping experience, they support and nurture both new and old independent stores.
Having amassed nearly 20,000 social network followers, Live Shop Local help spread the word about good deals, news hot off the press and encourage and foster real community spirit throughout its social connections, making it even easier for local businesses to connect with local people.
Live Shop Local have also garnered significant press attention, including a BBC London feature and NatWest Businesses Sense showcase in December 2013. In this current economic climate, businesses need all the help they can get, and Live Shop Local is proud to support and nurture these veritable pillars of the community.
