Home delivery and click-and-collect service app Jisp has partnered with social media management platform Maybe, in a bid to maximise its social support provided to its retailers.
Retails will be able to take advantage of free monthly webinars, tips on best practice, tools and social media engagement to boost sales and customer loyalty.
In addition, the social media management platform, which forms part of the UK government’s High Street Task Force, will be including Jisp as their recommended solution and will offer the app as a form of payment via its local rewards scheme when customers shop in-store.

“We are always on the lookout for brilliant companies to provide more value for independent businesses, and Maybe is a perfect partner to boost our social media support on a local level, Jisp chief commercial officer Greg Deacon said.
“Jisp puts retailers at the heart of every single solution, and our top priority is to ensure small businesses continue thriving in their local communities through our best-in-class services.
“Maybe has some fantastic clients not only in the convenience sector but in hospitality and fashion too, so we look forward to a full-scale launch with them in the coming weeks”.”
Maybe chief executive officer Polly Barnfield, OBE added: “We’re delighted to be working with Jisp to help their retailers use social media.
“Today across the UK only 28 per cent of independent retailers are active on social media, which puts those that are not at risk when you consider that 66 per cent of consumers spend three hours per day using social media.
“We look forward to providing tools and training to Jisp retailers.”
