We’ve been working on some big changes at StyleBlueprint, all to serve you better and make StyleBlueprint more of what you want it to be: your guide to the best of local, with lifestyle tips and special interest stories. We continue to connect you to your community, and we’re getting better at doing just that.
First off, we’ve been busy visiting all our local businesses and all the places that make our town the great local-loving city that it is. The fruits of our labors are all here for you now, in our SB Guide. It’s an online, curated summary of our local retailers, restaurants and more, all in one easy, current spot. Help us spread the word about this great tool for supporting businesses in our community. We love Louisville, and we want to showcase it in the best possible light.
Also, new is our free SB App, which currently serves Louisville, as well as Birmingham, Memphis and Nashville, with Atlanta not far behind.
Whether you are a resident or a tourist, the SB App is your social secretary at your fingertips. Just tap the Happenings calendar for a listing of local events—exactly what you need to stay on top of what Louisville has to offer. No worries, it’s not a huge and overwhelming list, as we’re tired of being bombarded with too much information, as well. It’s a curated listing with enough options for a great girls’ night out, a perfect date or a family outing.
And, of course the StyleBlueprint App is the best way to navigate whichever SB city you are in. Search by neighborhood or by category to find your next brunch destination, an architect or interior designer, the perfect place to buy a new dress, take an exercise class or get the best haircut you could ask for.
You can favorite these businesses and happenings to share with friends. Your long-lost friend reaches out to say she’ll be in town and needs suggestions on where to eat or shop? Argh, it takes forever putting those lists together! No longer. Now just click the heart on the business or event page within the SB App, and then send that grouping via email to your buddy. Easy as that, and now they will have all the addresses, websites, descriptions and even photo galleries of your hand-picked businesses. Pretty awesome, huh?!
What else can the SB App do for you? We now have Beets! No, not the red root vegetables, but these beets are fresh, and they do root out the most compelling offers in town … which means they are good for you AND for our local economy. Fresh and timely, these offers will have you coming back each day to click around and see if there is someplace you should go, that very day, for a special discount, a new shipment, a trunk show or another opportunity. Our SB Beets will help you save time knowing the best places to go on a given day.
And let’s not forget ibeacons. You’ll be greeted by a special message across your iPhone when you enter a SB Guide member business, letting you know a StyleBlueprint tip about that shop or restaurant. Is there a favorite cocktail we want to recommend? Is there a sale in the back left corner? Does this place have a go-to item we want you to know about? Check your iPhone for our beacon messages!
Look for the SB Guide sticker on the door of your local stores and you’ll know you are about to enter one of the best places in your city. Traveling? Look for that same sticker, and you’ll know you’ve found a local favorite.
When you are looking for what to do, where to eat, where to shop, the best health and beauty and home service options in your city, you need the SB App. SB Beets now offer you a savvy insiders’ guide of the best local offers from our SB Guide members. With more than 500 businesses in our SB Guide across all our markets, that’s a whole lot of fabulous information and savings.
And for local business owners, if the SB App and the SB Guide sound like a perfect fit for your business, contact our sales manager Meghan Tinker at Meghan.Tinker@styleblueprint.com for more details. She’d love to talk to you about partnering with StyleBlueprint.
The SB App will continue to evolve, as we’re committed that it be everything you want it to be! Download it for free from the App Store.
