Using a Scavenger Hunt App for 2022 Small Business Saturday

As we look forward to the holiday season, our team at Eventzee wants to take this time to support and raise awareness for independent shop owners across the country on Small Business Saturday (the Saturday after Thanksgiving). This nationwide movement to help small businesses is a great marketing initiative, and Eventzee can help you take engagement even further with personalized scavenger hunts. To get you started, here are a few ideas for using the Eventzee scavenger hunt app this November and beyond!

Downtown Adventures

The few days after a big Thanksgiving meal are perfect for encouraging people to come and walk around your local downtown area. Team up with other local businesses to create a virtual passport using the Eventzee scavenger hunt app and offer prizes to participants who get out and visit multiple businesses in your city. 

Eventzee client Downtown Center Business Improvement District (DCBID) of Los Angeles, California, used the Eventzee scavenger hunt app last year to encourage residents and visitors to explore local businesses and landmarks of Downtown LA. Dialing up the fun and encouraging patronage of the area’s small businesses in recognition of Small Business Saturday was a hit with locals and visitors alike.

The scavenger hunt could be completed within a few hours, and tasked players to use the Eventzee app to complete tasks and challenges throughout the city. Participants stopped by landmarks and businesses including iconic sites such as Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Broad and Grand Central Market and small businesses in the Jewelry District, The Bloc and FIG@7th.

Take a cue from our friends in Downtown LA and bring Eventzee to your area this Fall! Combine the immersive scavenger hunt experience with local discounts for even more engagement!

Discounts and Deals

Bring out the masses by offering deals, coupons, and discounts for those who choose to participate in your Small Business Saturday event! It’s likely that the small businesses will already be offering their own discounts during the busiest shopping season of the year, but additional offers will encourage people to join the event and visit more shops and businesses.

Using a virtual passport system with Eventzee, players can earn discount codes as badges for completing various challenges. This will encourage more engagement with a variety of businesses and award players for their dedication.

Keep them Coming Back

Many Eventzee clients offer players a small prize after the event concludes, like a gift card to be spent within the city at participating locations. This can include local shops, restaurants, or attractions. A monetary prize encourages participants to be excited about the prospect of returning to the town at a later date.

This past October, Downtown Jacksonville, FL, used Eventzee for their Halloweek event, which encouraged all attendees to scan at least 10 QR codes into the Eventzee app, and then rewarded all who completed the event a $20 #DTJax e-Gift Card. 

Offering prizes not only encourages participation, but also drives home repeat business and small business camaraderie between shop owners.

Make it an Event!

While Small Business Saturday is usually just one day, that doesn’t mean you can’t make it into a bigger celebration. After Thanksgiving, people look forward to tree lightings, holiday lights exploring, holiday shopping, and more. Expand your Small Business Saturday into December and use the Eventzee scavenger hunt app to inform people of upcoming events. 

Regardless of what your Small Business Saturday event looks like, Eventzee is here to support you in making it the best event yet! For more information and to get in touch, contact Craig Holland, sales@eventzeeapp.com.

Chronogram Launched 2022 Chronogrammies with Eventzee Scavenger Hunt App

This year, Eventzee teamed up with Chronogram Magazine for the annual “Chronogrammies” event to utilize Freeze Tag’s Eventzee scavenger hunt app platform. 

The Chronogrammies is a yearly event which encourages people who live in and around Hudson Valley, NY to participate in nominating and voting for their favorite businesses of all kinds. With over 125 different nomination categories, participants could nominate any type of business, but also included some of the area’s top hits for favorite outdoor spots, local artists, restaurant wait staff, best schools, and more.  

Once the initial nomination round had concluded, Chronogram utilized the Eventzee platform to create an immersive scavenger hunt app event which guided participants to Hudson Valley’s top Chronogrammies-nominated businesses during the 45-day voting period. 

“We were really excited to be part of such a unique event like the Chronogrammies this year,” said  Craig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag.  “One of the best ways to use the Eventzee platform is to support local and small businesses by encouraging locals and visitors to explore the community around them.”

The scavenger hunt featured photo challenges, which awarded players with points towards winning grand prizes like spa packages, dinners out at local favorite eateries, cases of wine, and more. 

The winners of this year’s Chronogrammies were recently announced and will be posted on the Chronogram website later this month, followed by a blow-out bash celebration. Until then, anyone visiting Hudson Valley can still take a peek at all businesses and locations that were nominated during the event, and check out the best the area has to offer.
