With Cape Town becoming the number one tourist destination in the world there has been a ripple effect of innovative ideas shooting up, showcasing this beautiful city.
With no shortage of extraordinarily unique and wonderful things to do in and around Cape Town, and even more so in the lesser known South Peninsula. In fact, some would say the South Peninsula community have been instrumental in re-writing the scene of Cape entertainment and the show casing of our local wonders. This is the heart of what Get Out, Get South is all about.
Think of Get Out, Get South as your very own Google for local events and entertainment in the south peninsula of Cape Town! Have you ever missed out on an epic event because you had no idea it was happening? Why is it that some people seem to have the ultimate events guide, while some of us only hear about what we missed out on?
Get Out, Get South is now giving us all the upper hand. Consider this your own personal play book of what to do, where to go and who and what to see in the South Peninsula of Cape Town. Let’s get to know the heart of the south... We picked the brain of the brains behind Get Out, Get South. Let’s step into his world!
What is Get Out, Get South all about?
Get Out, Get South is about providing a platform for people to showcase their events, their creativity, and their art. It’s a platform for people to get the message out, to drive event participation and to engage with people to create a more connected community.
What makes Get Out, Get South stand out?
Unlike other event guide websites or platforms, Get Out, Get South is entirely dedicated to the South Peninsula. It’s designed by locals, for locals. Users of the website are not polluted with stupid memes or videos, there is no advertising and best of all you can synchronize the event guide direct to your phone calendar.
How does Get Out, Get South work?
Get Out, Get South uses a number of key technologies that make things like Facebook and other older eventing sites redundant. The event calendar can synchronize directly with your own IPhone or android calendar. Even with your google or outlook calendar.
We also have mechanism in place to help keep people informed of what’s happening. Things like the PUSHED app, which sends PUSH notifications of events, EMAIL alerts of things in the area, and now just recently WHATSAPP broadcasting. If there is something happening out there, we want people to know about it, and to get involved, through whatever mechanisms are available to them.
Why would you want to list an event on the Get Out, Get South platform?
The key to promoting an event is to get as much coverage for an event. Facebook is one way, posters or print media is another. Get Out, Get South is setup to enable people to list an event for FREE. It’s easy to use and anyone can do it. The event is then promoted through social media accounts, email alerts, push notifications and WhatsApp broadcasting.
It’s simple and gets the message directly to the people who want to know what’s happening. Traditional social media platforms are so clogged with spam and fake news, that people are losing trust in these and you are also competing for the attention of users with 1000’s of messages. People who visit the Get Out, Get South website, have a single purpose in mind. They are looking for things to do in the south.
Do you have any big news coming our way?
YES!! We have been working with the Muizenberg Festival guys on how to showcase all the amazing things that will be taking place from 1 Oct to 15 Oct at this year’s festival. The Get South platform has been created to have a specific FESTIVAL events program that is a live listing on events during the area. We hope to partner with other festivals and events at a later stage to see how we can best create a live festival guide to give party goers access to information on the go, as it happens.
How do we get involved as a user and as a company?
As a USER – save the website to your home screen on your phone (this gives you easy access to the site). Synchronize the calendars with your calendar, or sign up for one of the notifications mechanisms. It’s that simple. You will then be notified when events are happening in your area. Or you can just browse the event calendar at your leisure. If you are planning to host an event, then just simply click the LIST FREE EVENT button, and complete the steps. Your event is usually live within 2-4hrs. Simple.
It’s time to get connected to the ultimate entertainment guide for the South Peninsula! If you like to keep up to speed with what’s hot and happening during the week and weekends, Get Out, Get South is exactly what you’re looking for.
