News: Spotamo launches in Rotherham


Spotamo, a unique advertising company serving independent retailers in the UK, has launched in Rotherham.

A team of local entrepreneurs have been developing the idea over the last nine months and have now launched the business from RiDO's Century Business Centre in Manvers.

The Spotamo concept allows retailers to advertise an offer through a 2D barcode, often known as a QR Code. The free Spotamo app will scan the code and reveal the offer on a shopper's mobile device. In order to take up the offer, the customer needs to share it through Facebook or Twitter, giving the retailer free advertising in return.

The enterprise aims to make Spotamo visible in every high street in the UK and give independent retailers the power, control and marketing tools to compete in today's tough retail environment.

Working as sales and customer service trainers in a South Yorkshire call centre, both Chris Cooper and Carlo van de Watering, together with their IT developer Edward Millen have spend nearly every minute in their spare time setting up

Carlo said: "Our belief is that we are the only company in the UK that have developed this technology.

"Whilst many others are feeling the effects of the tough economic climate, we are ready to bring Spotamo to every High Street in the UK. We realise that this means moving from the comfort of our day jobs into a tough trading environment with no financial guarantees, but our concept was successfully trialled in Barnsley and the results were amazing. This was the push we need to make the next step."
