What’s the big idea?
The uZen seed was planted during an online hunt for a mindfulness meditation class near me in Brighton. After scouring page after page, website after website until my clicking finger almost cramped up, I eventually found what I was looking for.
A few weeks later, after another tedious search-sesh for a local massage therapist who specialised in Thai yoga massage, I had a light bulb moment. How handy would it be to have a search directory where people could find and review local holistic businesses, with a filter system that would connect users to exactly what they were looking for? No fuss, no endless website hopping and certainly no clicky-finger cramp!
Soon after this revelation, the uZen seed began to sprout and is slowly but surely blossoming into a very fruitful venture. What makes it so worthwhile is that many people will be able to enjoy and benefit from uZen’s bountiful spoils.
What can uZen offer me?
uZen will make it easy to search for whatever therapy or event you’re in need of, wherever you are.
As well as connecting you to therapies you are familiar with, uZen will also open you up to discover exciting new experiences that you may not have realised were right on your doorstep.
If you register your business with uZen you can create up to 8 listings (using the premium package) which can all be linked to your profile. This gives you a platform for all your therapies and events. Intermediate and free packages are also available.
Users (or uZers… geddit?) are encouraged to leave a review of their experiences, which in turn will help your businesses gain more traction on the site.
“uZen Gives Back” – What’s that all about?
Being, let’s face it, a bit of a hippy, I felt it would be worthwhile to incorporate a charity aspect into uZen. There are just so many amazing causes out there trying to make the world a better place, uZen could certainly do its bit to help spread awareness.
Once a month we will feature a different charity on our homepage with a view to gaining them more exposure. These charities will be nominated when a business registers an account with us.
As soon as the profit scales are balanced in our favour we will also endeavour to donate a portion of them to the monthly charity chosen by our wonderful uZers.
