The Benefits of listing your business

For Businesses - Behind the scenes:

We started building 24hrs.rocks in August 2017 but have had the idea since 2004. The main idea and concept is to make one central point for the town where locals and business can meet. We want to give local businesses a chance to increase their sales and engage more local people to make it convenient for them to eat, drink, shop and buy local. It will only work if we all join forces together, we decided to build 24hrs as a massive comprehensive website that covered every aspect from the start that people and businesses now expect as "the norm" when they go online.
The town is thriving at the moment and we want to improve on that and also to attract people in from other towns to visit and make it easy for them to do so by providing them with all the information that they require.

The site has been fully funded by ourselves as with regards to research, development, design, software, marketing, promo items and hosting at a cost so far of around £18,500.

We have been developing websites since 1994 and started the first dedicated web design company in Darwen in 1994 called Charter International Ltd. So we have the skills and the background to make this a success but now we need your support

Locals

The thought behind 24hrs.rocks for the locals

Firstly you are "what this site is all about" the local people of the town.

OK so whats in it for you.....

There are lots of bars, pubs, restaurants in town and they are all competing for your business to relieve you of your hard earned cash...

The difficulty is that if you wanted to find out who was on in town for the weekend you would probably have to go to about 20 different web sites and Facebook pages of every bar to see who's on and when.

The same with ordering food online or booking a table, there was no one single place you could do this locally.
OK we hear you shouting what about "Just Eat..." etc... Well did you know that the local Take Aways in town pay a setup fee of around £700 and then a commission of up to 20% every time you place an order through them...! so this is not helping your local business to become competitive.
Ok if you were staying in a big city and you did not know where the nearest PIzza shop was then Just Eat is perfect, But we bet you can probably name almost every Take Away in town so why do you need to use Just Eat? If you ALL start to order local either through our website at 24hrs or direct on the the Take Aways own website if they have one then, they will in time be able to reduce prices for you.
We are giving them a helping hand by charging them just £29.95 a month..!! to give them their own personal online ordering system, so you can save money and they can save money and we all and the money is kept in town.

We are just finalising details now of an online local Supermarket, where you can shop for all your usual groceries in one place and get one single delivery, but all your good will come from local market traders and shops.
