Racing Towards Retailization: WishKnish and InstantAccess.io Bring Down Usability Barriers to True Blockchain Adoption

Washington, DC, USA, 2018-Jan-08 — /EPR Network/ — What does the average retail user think about blockchain technology? A few words that frequently come up are: confusing, abstract, scary, complicated, overwhelming. Not exactly wide adoption territory. But one innovative company hopes to change that.

Any great technological revolution goes through stages, each with its own unique challenges. Blockchain technology is still in its infancy, and yet it’s already rearing to change the world. However, before it can “grow up”, it has to be accepted by the harshest audience of all: the average retail consumer.

Press Release Summary: BT Tradespace has announced the results of a survey that reveals Sir Steve Redgrave and Katie Price are considered top ambassadors for business and entrepreneurship.

Press Release Body: BT Tradespace, the online community that brings small businesses and their customers together, conducted a survey that polled small business owners among its network to assess the vision small to medium enterprise (SME) owners have for their companies by the year 2012.

According to the survey, rowing legend Sir Steve Redgrave is the British Olympic idol most businesses would hire for promotion work, with half of those questioned for the poll saying that they thought the five times gold medallist would be the best Games icon to assist with their business advertising.

Dame Kelly Holmes, who won two gold medals in the Athens 2004 Games, came in as joint runner up with decathlete Daley Thomson, who clinched gold in Moscow and Los Angeles in 1980 and 1984 respectively. Both claimed 20% in the vote on the BT Tradespace site.

Mick Hegarty, head of BT Tradespace, said: “Sir Steve is viewed as a perfect ambassador for small businesses.

“He is admired and respected for his sporting achievements and embodies attributes which are valued greatly in the business sector: drive, determination, hard work and honesty.

“He’s also shown he is a winner in business by launching a menswear range and is an active mentor and public speaker in the corporate sector.”

Katie Price, otherwise known as Jordan, also finds success in the poll from BT Tradespace. The former glamour model pipped easyjet founder Stelios Haji-Ioannou,Oprah Winfrey, the late Dame Anita Roddick and Simon Cowell in a poll of the most admired entrepreneurs, sharing fourth place with Sir Alan Sugar.

The 30 year old mother of three is a best selling author and has her own TV series, lingerie label and hair care range.

Mick Hegarty, said: “With her keen business sense, and unique approach to creating a brand, Katie is clearly an inspiration to many.”

“To make the transition from pin up to a multi-millionairess while raising a family is an impressive achievement. She has been very skillful in marketing herself as a go getting businesswoman.”

Virgin tycoon Sir Richard Branson topped the poll, beating Microsoft founder Bill Gatesand Dragons Den panelist Peter Jones.

BT Tradespace announces business social networking is an untapped gold mine


Released on: December 16, 2008, 5:12 am

Press Release Author: BT Tradespace

Industry: Financial

Press Release Summary: BT Tradespace launches new platform to help businesses win customers

Press Release Body: BT Tradespace survey reveals the use of business social networking sites as a promotional tool has doubled in the last six months, but it still remains a relatively untapped business goldmine.

The BT Tradespace research, which examined how small businesses market themselves, how they network and the technology they use to do so, found that 15% of companies are now promoted on social networking sites compared to just 7% at the beginning of the year*.

The survey revealed that start-up companies log on the most, with one in five (22%) using social networking sites, compared to just one in ten home-based (13%) and growing businesses (11%).

The research also revealed that whilst the majority of companies are aware of the benefits of online marketing, just over half have a company website (52%) and over a fifth of businesses (22%) do no marketing at all.

Mick Hegarty, head of BT Tradespace said: “More and more businesses are starting to use social networking platforms to win and attract new customers. But many are still failing to realise the full potential of the web to help them compete and thrive in our changing world. Smaller companies do much of their business through relationships and referrals and professional networking enables them to play to their strengths whenever they interact with customers, suppliers and business partners.”

To help small businesses harness technology and attract new customers, BT has launched a new platform, called Marketplace, on its social networking site, BT Tradespace. With new ecommerce features, deeper navigation, enhanced search functionalities and richer content, this free online community offers a greater experience and more interactive relationships for companies, individual sellers and customers looking to do business.

Hegarty continued: “Social media is constantly evolving and the launch of Marketplace demonstrates our commitment to offer businesses tools that allow them to communicate with consumers in the same way that they communicate with each other. With over 270,000 customers to date, BT Tradespace makes online marketing simple, interactive and most importantly, cost-effective for businesses in the current economic climate.”

The research also revealed a clear regional split across the country. London topped the league table, with 24% of businesses using social networking sites to market their company. This was following by the South East and North West with 19% each, compared with just 8% of businesses in Scotland.
