ABOUT OFFiGO

OFFiGO brings the local high street together online so businesses can be discovered daily.

All businesses can create a free profile with the opportunity to share a daily “promotional” message to help keep customers returning. This message could be an exclusive offer for that day or the promotion of an upcoming event, a new announcement, new menus, new products or entertainment. This way, customers can view up to date information and see what is available every day in their local area.

Whether it is a specialist store or service people are looking for or simply deciding where to go for dinner or drinks they can find it locally on OFFiGO.

This allows consumers to become aware of businesses they have never heard of and try new places all local to them. All promotional messages and profiles are searchable on Google and can be shared on social media in one click.

I have social media followers why do I need OFFiGO?

Social media is a great way to connect with consumers that’s why we have integrated OFFiGO with Facebook, Twitter and Linked in so your profile and each advert can be shared with your followers in one click.

If you have 1000 followers even Facebook admits possibly only 10% read your messages. With OFFiGO any consumer can view your promotional adverts and share it with their friends on social media. If these people are not currently following you then you have increased your potential following by attracting new customers. Remember ultimately you want customers visiting you and spending money not thousands of followers who don’t.

 

I have a shop and a website and only want consumers visiting us

Of course, businesses want to keep their customers coming to them as regular as possible. However, even online websites promote themselves on other websites and use other types of advertising media in which to grow its customer base. Our mission is to give as many daily reasons as possible to the consumer to choose local.

 

My competitors are local I don’t want to join them online

This argument has played out for years in for example in the pub trade where they directly competed with each other to get the customers returning. However, internet shopping and supermarket prices have become the biggest competitor to the high street not its local neighbour.

 

Can OFFiGO guarantee me, customers

We would love to say yes but be can’t, ultimately the consumer decides where they spend their hard-earned cash. Some of the biggest companies in the world have spent millions promoting a product that simply the consumer wasn’t interested in buying. With OFFiGO you can change what you promote at any time instantly and see for yourself what works and what doesn’t. One thing is for sure a business that promotes themselves to consumers stands a better chance of being seen than a business that doesn’t.

 

What if we don’t have any special promotions on at the moment

OFFiGO isn’t a deal site where we only promote sales and offers. Every business has something to offer, that’s why they open its doors every day. Use us to say why they should visit you today. Ie an image of a mouthwatering plate of food and a description of the produce will attract the consumer’s attention, consumers don’t just buy when something is on offer.

 

I don’t have much digital experience

We understand that each business has a varying degree of skills and there are some who haven’t as yet embraced the full benefits digital offers them. We provide support to all businesses who need extra help through online chat and even create their profile and adverts for them to get them up and running.

 

I have created a profile how do I create adverts

Creating adverts is viewable depending on your account status the free user needs to upgrade on their accounts page and the advert creation button will appear after payment.

 

How much does it cost

To create a profile is FREE and always will be. For the business to benefit from promoting on the marketplace it is currently FREE for a trial period it will then cost less than £1 a day which can be paid yearly or monthly depending on the needs of each business.

A DIGITAL MARKETPLACE BRINGING LOCAL BUSINESSES TOGETHER

The Marketplace is where businesses add their promotions within their chosen sector. Consumers can find the latest deals by clicking on the “todays promotions” and choose per category or view all of the local opportunities promoted daily.

Consumers use their phones and laptops nearly every day for social media, socialising, shopping, and searching for things to do and places to visit. The number of consumers using digital to find information is rising every day, yet many businesses on the high street have been slow to follow. OFFiGO has been built to redress the balance locally and digitally, giving businesses the opportunity to be discovered and connect with consumers daily online

SIMPLIFYING THE WAY BUSINESSES PROMOTE THEMSELVES DIGITALLY

Creating a promotional advert is easy to do and even easier to share on social media.

PROMOTING DAILY CAN ENCOURAGE CONSUMERS TO SPEND LOCALLY

If every adult in the UK spent just £5 a week in local shops and businesses instead of online or with huge multinationals, it would be worth £16.8bn going back into the local economy. This means local jobs, better facilities, and nicer places to live – makes you think, doesn’t it?

So, let’s give the consumers plenty of reasons to choose businesses locally.

Each business shares a promotional message daily, in order to attract the consumer's attention.
