Shop local – local businesses ftw 💪

Shop local! Under this motto, some initiatives are currently underway to support small and medium-sized local businesses during the currently restricted operations.

It’s really nice to see how much support and attention the small shops around the corner are getting. This is also a great concern for us. That’s why we have joined this effort and are offering our info box for online and phone orders for free.

The information can simply be added and edited on the respective company listing (Tupalo Spot Page).

Tupalo Spot Page with Shop Local – Online Order Info Box

New company entries can be created here: New Spot.

It’s important that as many people as possible know which businesses in their area are still offering online or phone orders despite their closed doors. So let’s spread the word and shop local! 🙌

Check out the other local community lists (german) for Vienna here.

What’s new #1 – Homepage

What's new on Tupalo

Did you already notice? Our Homepage got a new look! It’s already been online for a while…but hey, we just wanted to give you a quick heads up – not only the technical parts and functionalities on our site got some love (we will specifically point them out to you soon) but also the homepage was given a little upgrade. We added new pics and also some descriptions of our most used features. We thought it might be a good idea to give some hints on what awaits users on Tupalo, in addition to the location based data (that most of our visitors come for). Also new are the responsive elements that were added to make it easier to view the standard site on your mobile devices (as an alternative to our mobile apps or our mobile site m.tupalo). More on that soon…stay tuned!

Wir haben eine neue Homepage. Und sie sieht richtig hübsch aus!

In den letzten Wochen haben wir einer kleinen Überholung unterzogen. Zum einen wurde unser Ranking-Algorithmus verbessert, um die Suche nach den derzeit angesagten und neu eröffneten Locations einfacher zu gestalten. Zum anderen waren wir der Meinung, dass unsere Seiten einen etwas einheitlicheren Look bräuchten.

Um das Ganze auch auf der Startseite durchzuziehen und somit abzurunden, gab’s noch eine neue Homepage dazu. Auf dieser neuen und verbesserten Homepage werden wir in der nächsten Zeit einige unserer persönlichen Favoriten präsentieren – handverlesen und mit passenden Fotos im Hintergrund.

Die neue Homepage soll Dir helfen, neue Restaurants, Geschäfte oder auch Bars zu entdecken. Probier sie einfach mal aus und lass uns wissen, wie sie Dir gefällt! (Um die neue Startseite sehen zu können, musst Du übrigens ausgeloggt sein.)

Was? Dein Favorit ist noch nicht dabei? Dann schicke uns doch einfach den Tupalo-Link, zusammen mit Deinem Schnappschuss zu dieser Location. Vielleicht erscheint dann in Zukunft Dein persönlicher Lieblingsspot ganz exklusiv auf der Startseite. :)

We’re further instagraming Vienna. Come join us.

From the 20th until the 22nd the Wiener Einkaufsstraßen Festival takes place and the 21st we’ll happily party along while exploring the Westbahnstraße and surroundings by smartphone. The Festival’s motto is “Beweg Dich!” (“Get Moving!”) and their wish is our command! We’ll (insta-)walk from MuseumsQuartier towards Urban Loritz Platz – passing by numerous interesting shops and some nice graffiti – where refreshments await out sporty participants!

Insta-what?! Never heard about an event where people explore their city while using the photo app Instagram? Here’s some information about the phenomenon. And / or check out our last instawalk, themed “Everyday Poetry”!

Everyone is welcome to participate, whether you chose to use Instagram, a digital camera or even an analogue camera! The goal is to have a nice time mapping (a part of) the city. In photos. The result? At the end of the day you’ll be able to see a piece of the world through different eyes. (Almost) literally.

We’re very grateful for the warm welcome MuseumsQuartier Wien and Familie Westabahnstraße give us on / along our way!

We’ll meet you on friday the 21st at the MUMOK staircase at 16:30. Want to join? Then make sure to RSVP on Facebook! We can hardly wait!

Wir sind Nummer 1 (ÖWA, Unique Clients)

That was easy!

Wir sind Nr. 1 bei den Einzelangeboten. Bei ÖWA getrackten Websites. Im Februar. Sortiert nach Unique Clients.

Danke an all die User die uns auf diesen Weg begleitet haben.
Google Trends for Websites_

Und an all die User, welche uns jeden Tag neu entdecken.

Den geübten Zahlen-Checkern unter euch wird beim Betrachten der ÖWA-Liste natürlich auffallen, dass hier
apple kiwi
Äpfel mit Birnen (bzw. Kiwis, siehe Bild oben) verglichen werden (z.B. dass wir “Anteil PI aus AT in %” nicht berücksichtig haben). ÖWA Zahlen sind ein wichtiges Marketinginstrument in Österreich und bei Marketingzahlen sucht man sich natürlich aus, welche man wie kommuniziert. :)

Wir finden das toll. Wir finden euch toll. Danke. Zeit den Sekt aufzumachen.
