What is the first thing you do after you wake up? Have a cup of coffee.
As much as you may not need coffee to live, it gives you a much-needed boost. A community-based app acts similarly. These apps help you discover local news, and upcoming online & offline events, discuss topics using forums and share your thoughts.
In general, a community-based app will help you stay connected with your neighbors and plan fun social activities or raise funds for a cause. If you are a professional, you can stay on top of current industry trends and even seek career advice from the community, which you are most likely to get. As a business owner, you can engage directly with potential customers, run campaigns, and build loyalty eventually.
If such an app is developed by a team operating locally, wouldn’t it hit the right spots? Tampa Bay Connect is a lifestyle-based app developed by Tampa Bay Connect, Inc., a team owned and operated in the heart of Tampa, Florida. The app supports local businesses and ensures you are up-to-date on everything happening in Tampa Bay.
After downloading and before signing up, the app will request location access. By clicking on ‘Allow’, you will enable Tampa Bay Connect to localize your recommendations. It includes receiving notifications on local businesses, rewards & promotions, community, and events. Once done, you can sign in to the app using your Google, Meta, or Apple id or skip the process. The app’s homepage will display basic information like today’s temperature, featured places, and recent activity near you.
Every local business in Tampa Bay is categorized further into Auto Sales & Services, Food & Drinks, Bank & ATM, Shopping & Retail, and more. You can also filter out businesses by active promotions, loyalties, and subcategories. Each featured business will have a full description, address, social media links, promotions, loyalty points, and customer reviews. You can support the business, share it with your friends and even give them a shout-out.
Then comes the classified section that includes the description & price of products and allows you to chat directly with the seller. Having said that, you can only contact the seller if you have logged in.
The other benefits of signing up include
- Adding favorite local places
- Rewards and loyalty bucks
- Viewing the reviews that you made
- Adding and viewing friends and followers
- Viewing classifieds and chatting with the owner & the team
- Neighborhood posts
- Chat with friends through messages
If you own a local business, the app is a must-install. In addition to social networking sites, you can build brand awareness, recognition, and credibility with local clients through the Tampa Bay Connect app. Tampa Bay Connect has listings starting at $0, another reason to list your local business.
Since the local events are regularly posted and updated by the top-of-the-line feeds, verified members, and city officials, you can be assured of the authenticity. By shopping locally, you can also keep the tax from leaving Tampa.
