Monmouthpedia – so what’s in it for local businesses?

 What is it?

  • Monmouthpedia has put Monmouth on the map as the world’s first Wikipedia project to cover a whole town.
  • Monmouthpedia will use QRpedia codes around the town, a type of bar code a smartphone can read through its camera that takes you to a Wikipedia article. QR codes are extremely useful, as physical signs have no way of displaying the same amount of information and in a potentially huge number of languages.
  • Monmouthpedia belongs to and can be contributed to by everyone and involves people from all over the world contributing their time and knowledge.
  • Monmouthpedia will give visitors and locals an unparalleled experience of the place.

How could it work for you?

  • Monmouthpedia will attract a great deal of interest and footfall in the town. More people could mean more business for you.
  • As people tour the town, taking in knowledge about the buildings, history and the great features of the town, they could also learn about your profession.
    For instance, a baker could proudly display a QRpedia code linking to a Wikipedia page that gives the history of baking and bread making. You provide a specialist service such as website design? Put up a QRpedia code on your office entrance linking to a Wikipedia page explaining your craft.
  • This will give your visitors and staff a better understanding of what you do and who knows, while they’re reading they might think about using your services too.

The world is watching us and you can be a part of it.
