StreetPin, revives an age-old, tested way of connecting local communities - the ‘pin board’, or ‘notice board’. We bring this concept into the digital age.

Pin boards can be stand-alone as an instant, affordable sales and social media site, or as a bolt-on to existing sites. YOU keep control of all advertising - just yours, or become a local, interactive directory for more traffic.
Discover the community on your doorstep, or the other side of the world. It's not about existing contacts - StreetPin is all about the location you're in, or one you're interested in.
StreetPin offers the ultimate in dual screening for the real world.
Interact with those sharing the same atmosphere
We know that advertising on web, mobile, apps etc can be daunting, so we make it simple! Forget about Pay per click, impressions and keywords - select your local community pin board(s) and post for £1 per week

StreetPin is a digital network of local, community pin boards. Each pin board is essentially a small site that will provide a web, mobile and app presence for your club, shop, school, meeting place... Each pin board provides instant, local social media and the ability to advertise products or services cheaply and effectively to those ‘here and now’.
We seek to connect people by the environment, atmosphere or venue that they are currently sharing, rather than existing contacts, and we aim to bring this simple concept to a global audience. Our mantra is 'connecting the world, one community at a time'.
Our platform champions the 'big society' ethos where neighbours and visitors will have the opportunity to get involved with what's happening on their doorstep, via their local, interactive directory.
We're in 'beta', or trial stage right now, lot's happening, and we'd love to get your feedback!
StreetPin helps you interact with those in your current location, or a bar on the other side of the world. We believe in open, social communities, and enable you to discover conversations, recommendations and offers anywhere in the world.
We aim to bridge the gap between companies sending out leaflets for local awareness and bidding on keywords for online awareness - StreetPin facilitates interaction and marketing at a local level

Your ads, your way!
Do you rely on static communication such as weekly flyers, ads in papers/circulars or annual entry in a directory?
Do you have small budgets and perhaps don't understand or see the benefit of advertising with pay-per-click or online deal aggregators?
Want to contact the audience here and now, and numbers from online aggregators just don't make sense?
Our business pin boards help venues, events, social clubs, colleges, small businesses... provide their own, localised social media and distribute tailored deals
Simplicity is key for us - you are able to create your branded pin board in minutes and add limitless offers of your own or include paid offers from non-competing businesses, producing a local, interactive directory and more awareness for you!
We offer an instant, search-engine-friendly community pin board, on which you can engage your customers and produce a branded sales and social media platform. For this discoverable web community, we charge £50 p.a. – less than a pound a week - less than hosting a static web page, a ¼ page advert in a circular, or approx 500 delivered leaflets. This can be a stand-alone web site, or connect to your existing site to add community and instant offer options
StreetPin offers the ultimate in dual screening* for the real world.
*dual screening - watching TV programmes and events at home whilst interacting via mobiles, lap tops and tablets
Select a pin board that is relevant for your product/service due to location, category, traffic or your existing knowledge of the area. We remove variables and uncertainty and allow you to select the local pub, or school, or church, as YOU know the area far better than any search engine will. This advert is just £1 p/w per pin board.
Example: The Queen’s Head pub display window stickers, coasters and leaflets to create awareness. Customers visit the pin board regularly for banter and to catch impromptu offers and events. Salmon with a limited shelf life is posted at half price from 7pm as it’s a quiet night and preferable to disposals tomorrow. They also advertise a half price coffee on the neighbouring church and school pin boards during their traditionally quiet time on Tuesday mornings, coinciding with the school drop off and the finish of morning service. ‘Sarah’ also adds an advert to sell her high chair. She doesn’t understand pay-per-click, or keyword bidding, but she knows there are groups of mums meeting there, an advert is simple to produce and costs just £1 a week.
A sports shop with a new footwear promotion could spend £1 on a single search engine click from someone on the other side of the world. Alternatively, they could spend the same £1 to advertise on the local running club pin board, where it will be displayed to 50-100 runners within walking distance of the shop.
For larger advertisers; select all ‘sports’ pin boards, or all pin boards in ‘London’, or cherry pick pin boards by location or traffic.

The team is made up of web, mobile and travel enthusiasts. We're London-based but there are few places in the world we haven't been. We love to travel and meet locals or those with common mind-sets and goals. It's not that our friends are boring :) but we believe that there are a huge amount of situations where it would be great to share thoughts, questions and plans with those around us. We know that in most of the major cities you'd probably get at least a strange look and a slow shift away if you start talking to random people. We want to change that, with a safe and friendly approach
