ShowMyCity is a map to locate local shops and traders
ShowMyCity (SMC) is an online interface which guides the users to locate the shops and traders easily and thereby enhancing their shopping experience. It was founded by a group of young individuals who completed their graduation in various disciplines and have sufficient pool of knowledge in marketing and technical department.
In a nutshell
–Identify the search
-Divide into suitable categories
-Execute the results to the user
This is the way SMC works. Whenever a user places a query, SMC based on the product nature gives the details of the shops which own this product in the city.
It works with 3 basic inputs; they are Keyword, Location of the user, and Category of the product. This can be explained with an example
- Keyword: Scooty pep
- Your location: Nagole.
- Choose any category that you’re looking for: Bike related>pre-owned bikes.
You will be directed to many results with the above inputs and you have the flexibility to choose the output.
It also provides information regarding groceries, internet cafes and other locations which are not accessible with the help of Google Maps and Justdial. All the shops are placed in the categories on the website and easily accessible. SMC has an edgy interface compared to maps and other e-commerce giants.
