SHOULD I JOIN AS A PARTICIPATING BUSINESS?
GETTING VISIBLE IN THE LOCAL COMMUNITY IS A CHALLENGE FOR ANY BUSINESS
With a huge array or sources to search for businesses it can make it difficult to find what you are looking for, so we actively building a central platform to showcase & promote the very best of local businesses within 5 miles of Thame all in one place to bring local businesses & the community together! To incentivise the community to #thinklocalfirst when shopping or needing a service, we have launched an exclusive membership club which provides the opportunity for them to save money with our growing collection of participating businesses.
There are so many fantastic local businesses and services in Thame & the surrounding area so we are dedicated to shouting about and promoting who they are, what they do and what they have to offer the local community to drive more customers to local businesses.
BUSINESSES LIKE YOU.
PEOPLE LIVING IN THAME
That was the figure from the 2011 Census... think how much Thame & the surrounding area has grown since. There are 1000s of local potential customers waiting to find you.
WHAT IS IT?
Thame Rewards Club is an exciting new initiative, dedicated to helping the local community discover and use more of the fantastic & diverse local businesses that are within a 5 mile radius of Thame.
This is achieved through:
1) THE THAME REWARDS CLUB MEMBERSHIP CARD - The community can currently sign up to become a member which provides them with exclusive offers and incentives provided by participating businesses to reward them when they shop local. Members receive a once-monthly newsletter via email which provides them with the details of the latest offers available, news and guidance on how to follow us on social media and optimise their settings to ensure they see as much as possible.
2) THE DIRECTORY - Our categorised user-friendly & SEO optimised directory provides the details of all participating businesses including their social media links. If a business has any current promotions or offers these are listed too.
3) SOCIAL MEDIA - Advertising of participating businesses through our social media platforms and 'Spotlight Blog'
Our aim is not to be a dull directory, but a VIBRANT & ACTIVE central platform to raise the visibility of local businesses. Our content changes regularly due to being driven by the offers & rewards participating businesses provide.
WE UNDERSTAND THAT EVERY BUSINESS IS DIFFERENT AND WHAT WILL WORK WELL FOR ONE BUSINESS WONT NECESSARILY FOR ANOTHER. IF YOU JOIN YOU DECIDE WHAT OFFERS, INCENTIVES & REWARDS YOU PROVIDE, TAILORING THEM TO MEET YOUR OWN SPECIFIC BUSINESS NEEDS.
We then promote and shout about them ... simple!
