The Future of the ‘Most Liked In’ Contest

Right now, we’ve got expansion on our minds! Not only do we plan to expand our reach with respect to businesses in Shoreditch and allow for companies to arrange photo shoots themselves, but we also plan to expand the project to other hip and trendy areas in London, such as Soho, Camden Town, London Bridge, and Covent Garden.

About the ‘Most Liked Business In’ Competition

Launched in May 2011, the ‘Most Liked Business in Shoreditch’ competition selects new winners at the beginning of every month, and concludes in the annual Most Liked Business in Shoreditch awards at the end of the year.

It’s one of a kind. Essentially, the competition is a location-focused social media competition based on rating local businesses using Facebook ‘Likes’. Pictures of local businesses are taken by the Nearby Digital team, and are then uploaded onto our Facebook photo album, where the public has one month to ‘Like’ them. In the process, stronger relationships are forged between local businesses and their customers, and due acknowledgment is accorded to the actual people behind these businesses creating value in their communities.
