New virtual High Street Guide for shoppers and businesses in Torbay is now live

As part of the Reopening High Streets Safely Fund, we are pleased to reveal a new virtual High Street Guide for every shopper in Torbay that provides live content from local businesses. The High Street Guide enables shoppers to see businesses near them and view their social media content.

Once the High Street is reopened it will also allow retailers to connect with shoppers when they are nearby and communicate safety measures effectively. Every purchase by a registered shopper in participating retailers reveals a live visual local guide to other nearby retailers. It does not require any apps to be downloaded and is completely free for shoppers and businesses to access.

It makes it super simple to support local businesses whether they are open or not. The Torbay High Street Guides showcases not just what’s available to buy but also conveys the essence of your local high street, whilst providing essential support to local businesses.

The High Street Guides have been created by Maybe*, a social media management platform that helps businesses use social media to sell. For businesses that need help to increase their digital activity, this provides all the tools and training they need. For those that are already good at social media, it helps them improve their results.

Businesses and shoppers can sign up here.

Businesses who want to learn more about the support on offer can attend a free webinar .

If you have any questions please visit the Maybe* help centre.
