SnapMeUp is a QR code-based app that celebrates entrepreneurship and small-business. The app enables smartphone users to dive into expert small-business advice from selected enterprise hotspots. Club Workspace is delighted to be one of the first host locations for the trailblazing SnapMeUp service.
The launch night was a great success, and we’re very pleased to have been a part of it. After an hour or so of mingling and munching, the guests took to their seats and the launch proper got underway.
Emma, Clare and Jess drove home one key point, that the digital world is not the enemy of the High Street. In fact, they believed the contrary: e-commerce can be the High Street’s greatest ally.
If you are to believe everything you read about the High Street, it would seem that it’s all doom and gloom. However, the ever-expanding digital arena has the ability to drive footfall back to your local shopping strip. The three experts agreed that there is one theory that needs to be debunked: the online space is not the enemy of small shops.
The beauty of the smartphone is that it lives in a user’s pocket, and it gets used at least once an hour. If your local shops could utilise the personal and regular relationship that you, as a user, have with your device, then they’re onto a winner.
A thank you from everyone at Club Workspace to Enterprise Nation for bringing their fantastic Launch Night into our venue. It was a pleasure to host you. Thanks from everyone in attendance to the Clerkenwell Kitchen for laying on such a terrific spread. Finally, to all of the new faces and old friends who came to our little corner of Clerkenwell, thank you for coming, and pop back soon.
