Nearby Digital Announced First Winner of “Most Liked Business In” Project

Nearby Digital team is very happy to announce the first winner of “The Most Liked Business In – Shoredich” competition. It is Andrew White from FundApps, the company which aims to provide the new generation Financial Services software. We think Andrew should be not less excited as we decided to create a customized Facebook business page for his company (worth around £500).  He also will get the first The Most Liked Business badge which can be used in their promotions.

It’s been long and a bit tiring month, but it was also a brilliant month as we met so many great people on our way so we just want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who speared us a minute of their time! Also, it’s just the beginning of this long marathon of Most Liked Business In project. A good news is that you can still be a part of this process – we decided that we will allow previous participants to send their new pictures and participate in the competition again, and again and again:) Just get in touch with us: like@nearbydigital.com.

The future of The Most Liked In project

In the next few months we plan to expand the competition – we will try to reach more businesses ourselves and companies will be able to arrange the photoshoots themselves. Also the competition itself is planned to be launched in other trendy areas of London like Soho, Camden Town, London Bridge, Covent Garden and etc. Finally, at the end of this project we are planning to launch local recommendations engine which will be called – www.mostliked.in. So keep on following and sharing with us..
