At useyourlocal.com our mission is to get more people to go to the pub more often. Declaring #puboclock is a simple and fun way to tell your mates that you’re off to the pub.
Just find the pub you’re going to at useyourlocal.com and then click the button to declare #puboclock on either Facebook or Twitter.
Try it, you’ll like it.
You remember, the one with the open fires, yummy cask ale and fab rooms. The one that did the best steak and chips on the planet and where there’s a great quiz night every Thursday.
Well, if you’re anything like us you just can’t remember its name when you need to. You can picture it perfectly but your brain’s like the mushy peas they served with their delicious beer batter cod.
That’s precisely why we invented Publister. Now you can create your very own lists of the pubs you love. You can have as many lists as you like. What about “My favourite pubs with accommodation” or “Country pubs with open fires”. You can save them, publish them and share them with whoever you like.
They automatically save to your profile, so the next time you need a reminder they’re all there.
Easy as pie – steak and ale of course!
Some time ago we introduced Google Streetview to those pubs’ pages on useyourlocal.com where we didn’t have a photo. Nothing too new about that, I know. However, this gave us an immediate problem. The Streetview image would often be some distance from the pub, sometimes looking at a hedge or at the back of a bus. How annoying.
That’s why we can up with “Nail it!”. Anyone can now navigate using Streetview on our desktop site, find the pub, centre it nicely in the middle and “Nail it!’. The next time anyone then goes to that pub’s page they see the pub instead of the hedge. Sorted.
The only problem is that we’re now addicted to it. Try it, you’ll see what we mean.
You have been warned.
