We ask in return
- PROMOTIONAL ITEMS
Within 5 working days from signing up with us as a partnering venue we post out to you our welcome pack. This contains our business cards, stickers (4-inch) and a4 poster flyers to advertise our services at your venue. The pack also includes some other useful information so we can get you started and up and running as quickly as possible.
As a partnering venue, we trust you, so we let you decide what and how best to use the promotional items we send to you.
- PRE – BOOKED EVENTS AND PARTIES
When someone is pre-booking an event with you, please ask them if they would like to receive information about our services as your preferred and trusted taxi service provider, the email explains the benefits of our services and lets event organisers know of the preferential rates we offer customers of our partnering venues, when booking any ride with us. The email is very low key and makes it clear there is no obligation to book with us.
- RECOMMENDING OUR SERVICES TO CUSTOMERS
Lastly if any of your customers request a taxi/cab we ask that you offer our company as your preferred partner. – by either passing them one of our business cards, using our industry first Venue App or by just tell them about us, it’s up to you.
To make it super easy for your staff to help customers that needs a taxi we have developed our revolutionary Venue Booking App, venue staff can now help customers get a cab in just a few seconds.
To download our Venue Booking App search LC Venue in the App stores, the App works for phones , tablets and computers.
Booking our services using the Venue App:
Step 1 – Check on the App for a green light indicating drivers are available and within 10-min of your venue.
Step 2 – Enter the customers mobile number. (Their number is hidden as it is typed) and click the ‘Book A Cab’ button.
That’s it done, as we said, quick and easy.
A link goes to the customer who completes their booking. When the driver arrives the customer receives an sms message to let them know. It works just as if the customer has our App, but without having our App!
So there you have it, as we mentioned we set out to not ask much in return, display and or hand out our promotional items as you see fit, forward to event organisers our introductory information so that they can benefit from our preferential rates and finally if a customer request a taxi use our Venue Booking App to book a taxi with us if we have drivers available and nearby.
To be 100% clear what we do for you in promoting your venue on the GoOut London App, our social media channels, targeted email campaigns and other marketing methods is to bring you new customers. And this comes absolutely FREE, no catches, it’s a win win for all of us.
PROMOTED SO YOUR VENUE STANDS OUT
GO OUT LONDON
The GoOut London App is undoubtably a brilliant App for anyone wanting to find great Venues in London, with over 7,000 venues and a host of great features, but its principle aim is to get new customers for our partner venues.
As a partnering venue you get extra special promotional attention on the Goout App and through GoOut’s social media channels, targeted email campaigns you benefit from proven strategies that work and generate new customers.
Find out why the GoOut London App is so popular – The ‘go to‘ App for finding great venues and the very best London has to offer.
goout london - discover the very best london has to offer
We developed the GoOut London App as part of a strategic marketing plan to support our London Carriages business.
The principle being to provide a marketing channel to drive new customers to partnering venues by promoting their venues on the App in a number of clever and effective ways. This then being a compelling proposition for venues in return for promoting our taxi services to their customers, a win-win.
So, in setting out to build the GoOut London App we where very much focused on building an App that users would want to download and use. It was important that the App:
- Provide the best elements of what other existing, similar Apps or services provide, but do it better, with better features, presented in an attractive way and that gets you what you want quickly and easily. The GoOut London App offers something different, something more.
- Provides a great user experience, is easy to use, attractive, works ie does what it says on the tin, has no ads, popups or other annoying elements, is fun to use too not just functional and of course FREE.
- Makes your life easier, by using just one App rather than having to use several different Apps or services to get what you want. GoOut London the only App you’ll need for a great night out in London.
So that’s what we built, that’s what GoOut London is and does.
- COMPLETE CONTROL OVER WHAT USERS SEE
We want to reassure you that everything users see about your venue on the GoOut London App is 100% under your control.
We fully understand how important, your brand and image are to your business and that you will have taken a great deal of time, money and work to create it. It is yours you own it, so, we give you instant and complete control over all that users see about your venue on the GoOut London App.
When you sign up as a partnering venue with London Carriages you are given your own login credentials to the GoOut London Venue Manager.
The venue manager gives you complete control over information, content, images and comments users have made about your venue. You are able to decide what is made public, what those using the GoOut London App can see about your venue, to ensure what is seen reflects positively on your brand and image. It is your venue, your brand, your image, deciding what users see is at your complete discretion, you have the control and access to change what you want as you see fit.
- VENUE PROMOTIONS
From your members area you can add offers or promotions. To do this click add a promotion, give it a title for E.G 2 for 1 (this is the headline promotion users of the GoOut London App will see). Then add a description, the conditions that apply and when you want the promotion to be active.
We give you both flexibility and complete control on how you set up your promotions, for example if you wish you could set a promotions to run between 12.00 – 14.00 each Wednesday from July 1st to July 31st.
Users of the GoOut London App wanting to take advantage of your promotion, do this by showing you the promotion displayed in their GoOut London App on arrival. Note that users only see promotions that are live at the time, so users cannot use expired offers.
Publish as many offers or promotions as you wish, pause, modify or delete those that are not working for you. As we said you have full and complete control.
The GoOut London App is undoubtably a great promotional vehicle to get your business new customers, but we are also mindful that users are not always going to be on their GoOut London App.
So, to enable us to promote your venue outside of the App we share across our own social media channels and platforms any interesting marketing posts you send us, extending your reach and increase awareness of your brand. To do this, simply open up the marketing section within your venue manager and copy and paste, url’s of marketing posts you want to share with us and we do the rest.
