Being part of Love Our Shops UK is fantastic value.
A wonderful way to gain extra visibility, reach, traffic and ultimately sales. But don’t just take our word for it, see what the member shops are saying:
Grace of Beyond Measure: The Love Our Shops UK members get great business exposure.
Kelly of Surface Candy: Member shops love to stay.
Sarah of Sister Sister : It is great value, a platform to advertise on and really helps with getting traffic.
Amy, Alex and Otis (the very cute dog in this picture) of Pawshtails: the shopping directory members love being part of it.
Penny of Colmers Hill Fashion boutique: The shopping directory is full of really great shops who love being a part of this growing community.
The directory includes all kinds of shops selling lots of different products. Some have been in business for decades, others for a few months. Some have hundreds of products, others just one. Some buy the products in, some make them. All are online and some are on the high street too. All are great (carefully selected) shops.
For the shop owner, it is another way of getting more shoppers to their website.
For the shopper, finding independent shops online is really difficult, relying on search engines, who always put the big shops and marketplaces first. My directory makes finding independent shops quick and easy.
I Champion Shop Independent. Independent shops are such an important part of our lives. They contribute directly to the UK economy, they are amazing and run by some really passionate, hard working, genuinely lovely people. Shopping with them is an absolute pleasure.
I love running the shopping directory and enjoy supporting and sharing each and every one of the member shops.
Running an online shop means working hard to get shoppers to your website. I know because I have been there. For just under 10 years I ran a busy online shop. It takes a huge amount of effort to get a consistent flow of traffic to my website. “Build and they will come” just doesn’t work, especially when competing against the multinational online shops and the huge market places.
I created the directory to help shops get more shoppers and to give shoppers an easy way to find independent shops. More and more shoppers are using it every day, which is brilliant to see. My vision for Love Our Shops UK has become a reality and I am really pleased and excited.
I explain the benefits in more detail here Benefits of Being a Member.
I include a wide range of shops on the directory, making it really useful to shoppers.
Including (but not limited to) Beauty & Pampering, Children and Babies, Clothes & Accessories, Craft & Hobby, Food & Drink, Gifts & Stationery, Health & Well Being, Home & Garden, Pet Supplies, Sports & Leisure and Weddings & Parties.
I review each directory application carefully to ensure it is right for the shoppers and fits in well with the other shops.
The shoppers expect quality products, good customer service and a professional user friendly website.
Your shop must be:
In addition you must have a good online reputation, good customer service and using at least one social media channel that portrays your shop well.
I love that I can find these shops easily, I can see what they sell all in one place and that I can shop directly with them rather than through a marketplace.
