LoLo, a new and exciting local loyalty app, that rewards people for supporting local businesses, is launching this week in Orpington.
The Orpington 1st Business Improvement District are supporting this initiative and are encouraging businesses and the local community to sign up and get on board.
In response to the challenges high streets across the country are facing, LoLo has come up with a unique and inspiring way to reward and motivate local people to buy locally more often in a way that rewards both them, the local businesses and the local community. LoLo provides a mobile app that customers can download and immediately receive free access to £20 of “Loyalty Tokens” that they can then use to access discounts at all participating businesses.
The new app will not only help encourage repeated footfall but also help businesses to build even better relationships with their customers. LoLo is inviting businesses to sign up and has a dedicated Local Loyalty Leader who is available to help with this simple and free process.
Chris Travers, Orpington 1st’s BID Manager, says “We’re delighted to be supporting LoLo in the delivery of this exciting opportunity which rewards customers and empowers local businesses. The LoLo team have come up with a creative solution to inspiring loyalty not just to individual businesses but to our town as a whole and we’ve already seen great enthusiasm for the scheme.”
Ian Jones, co-founder and CEO of LoLo says: “The beauty of LoLo is that the more local businesses and customers join the free loyalty platform, the more they will all benefit. Each time a customer makes a purchase with a local business using their loyalty tokens, they receive more tokens back, that they can then spend again at the same business or redeem at another participating shop, mechanic, butcher or restaurant. LoLo is the gift that just keeps giving.”
Every time people spend money they are casting a vote on the future community they want. If we want vibrant local communities then we must support the local businesses who employ local people and pay local taxes.
When we spend money with international online giants we send the money away from our community. Supporting local businesses helps to keep the money circulating in our local community.”
LoLo’s platform has a payment, reward, redemption, marketing and feedback system all in one simple to use place so businesses don’t need to have or invest in any other systems to participate. LoLo provides businesses with an online and smart phone presence and enables them to offer and communicate promotional deals to their customers. The main benefit to businesses is an increase in sales, cash flow and profits without any capital risk or ongoing monthly fees.
