Introducing Colocals and getting knowing people

Hey Crowdholders,

 

Today we would love to introduce ourselves and ask you some questions. We're Colocals.

 

We believe that the local economy is the path to a sustainable future. 

 

70% of all local businesses (restaurants, hairdressers, butchers, etc. ) close down within 3 years because they don't have enough customers to have a sustainable business. Why? They might have excellent service but they don’t manage the 4 key areas that make a business successful: having a business concept that works for their local area, promoting their business, enough funding, turning their customers into loyal fans. Big companies have large teams to manage all these areas, but our local business owners have to do it all alone! 

 

And that’s where Colocals come in. We are creating a decentralized platform connecting local businesses directly with local people - because they know the best what they need in their neighborhood.

 

For local businesses there is a tool, where they can easily manage it all from one place - accept reservations, get feedback from many streams and improve their business concept, ask local people to help with promotion, design or other things. Get crowdfunded by local people and overall by engaging people to get more happy customers. Until now this option was accessible only for startups or sexy products (on kickstarter.com, or idiegogo.com), but now, because of Colocals and blockchain, we are bringing this option also to local businesses.

 

On the other hand, there is an application for local people - where they can easily find, share and discuss information with their neighbors,  co-create local businesses they like and finally get rewarded for their time and ideas. They can crowdfund or borrow money to local businesses they like and improve their neighborhood they are living in.

 

Before 10 years this would not be possible, but now, when people are caring more about sustainability, when there is a growing trend of exponential technologies when local is becoming new global - now is the right time!

 

And we want to ask you mainly about our application for local people because we don't assume you are owning some local business:) But if you do have a local business, feel free to share your feedback.

 

It is just quick 6 questions:

1. How do you care about your local area/city where you are living or working? For example: I don't care what's happening in my neighborhood so much, or I am interesting what is happening in my neighborhood - I read a local newspaper, I am supporting local activities.

 

2. Are you caring about sustainability, ecology, etc. ? (from 1 -  I totally don't care, to 10 -  I am second Greta:) 

 

3. Can you imagine this could work in your city/area? How would you recommend this application for local people to your friends? (from 1 - never,  to 10 - totally yes, this is what I was missing my whole life:)  Imagine it's already working in your area / city, there are information from your neighborhood shared by other people (info, news, pics, etc.) and you can also accomplish some tasks for local businesses and get some discounts, or free perks, or crowdfund some local businesses you like.

 

4. What would you like to have in a similar application?  For example all the discounts in your local area, etc.

 

5. Would you crowdfund local businesses you like or want in your area? How much? What would you like for a reward? 

 

6. At the end of your feedback please share with us some general information about you as shown below (because we are also validating our primary target group).

  • Age:

  • Gender:

  • Country /city: 

  • Education: high school/university  

  • Children / no children

  • What are you reading? (Facebook feed, magazines, Forbes, etc.)

  • Hobbies:

 

Thanks a lot! We are looking forward to your answers. And soon there will be the second task. Stay tuned!:)

Your Colocals team

I'm going to introduce a tourist resort to my area, which really has a good culture, is pure and clean, a lot of it, and some of it has become inactive because of the state of waste or the environment that is less concerned, so I would recommend this application, the reward for me is a natural beauty which cannot be appreciated by value, whatever that may be.Click here

1. How do you care about your local area / city where you are living or working?
I take a keen interest in my area of residence and try as much as possible to follow any new developments there via word of mouth, news outlets and social media, etc.

2. Are you caring about sustainability, ecology, etc. ? 
Yes. I'm very concerned about climate change, waste management and plastic pollution in our environment. I've  interned at a company specializing in that area of expertise before. And I do attend seminars and conferences on sustainability regularly.

3. How would you recommend this application for local people to your friends?
I will give this a 7. A higher rating if there are little to no problems when using the Colocals app.

4. What would you like to have in a similar application?  
The discounts, updates on new meals, places with the best customer service, best conference centres, best rental services, competitive pricing.

5. Would you crowdfund local businesses you like or want in your area? How much? What would you like for a reward? 
Yes, any amount from $6 - $20. I won't need a reward for that. What will be the point of giving then?

1. I'm somewhat interested in what's happening in my local area. I joined several Facebook groups to follow local events and I follow the local police and sheriff's department on Twitter to get updates on crimes too.

2. I care very much about the environment in my area and I recycle and seperate the recycling for mine and several other apartment complexes nearby. I collect and distribute food, clothing, and other necessities for needy families in my neighborhood. I have a book sharing exchange/"little library" built on my street that I fill with books and magazines and care for.

3. I think it would work well in my city and could share posts online or flyers in the grocery stores in town.

4. Discounts and coupons for all business in each city would be the most interesting to me.

5. Possibly in exchange for gift cards to the business or discount coupons.

6. My demographics:

Age: 32

Gender: Female

Location: Beaverton, OR U.S.A.

Education: tech school certificate and some community college classes.

Children: a 7 year old boy

I do care about what happens in my neighborhood. I try to hire local when I need work done at my home.

I care about sustainability a great deal. I recycle, compost, take plastic grocery bags back to stores, give newspapers to a person with chickens etc. I plant a vegetable garden and have rain barrels.

This could definitely work in my neighborhood and I would recommend it and try to promote it.

I would love to have this here.

I would try to crowdfund.

I am 56, female, Pennsylvania US, grown children, besides gardening I like to macrame and do woodworking.

Access to loans? Wow, isn't that extreme considering Colocals doesn't specialize in that.
