by bold-lichterman

From the presentation of the start-up of the month Message In A Window, instead of On Rewind, via Google conferences or on the GDPR, selection of events and meetings in the Basque Country with Thomas Perron.

Start up of the month:

Message In A Window

Thomas Perron, correspondent FrenchWeb: Hello Vincent, who are you? can you introduce us to Message In A Window?

Vincent Clabé-Navarre, founder of the Message In A Window startup: Hello Thomas, I am Vincent Clabé-Navarre, the founder of the Message In A Window startup, the 1st platform for organizing a communication campaign in shop windows, hotels and restaurants in France.

We see many articles and events that talk about the crisis in local commerce and the death of city centers. How does your Startup bring an innovative solution to traders?

At a time when e-commerce and large peri-urban shopping centers are bursting local merchants and drying up the activity of city centers, Message In A Window is a real opportunity for them to generate additional and relevant income. In the context of the city center revitalization plan announced by the government for an amount of 5 billion euros, Message In A Window proves that new economic opportunities can still open up to traders.

By registering on our platform, merchants create a listing for their business that will allow them to be offered to advertisers. Everything is done online, with just a few clicks for advertisers and marketers.

For advertisers, Message In A Window provides access to thousands of qualified businesses throughout France, filtering them according to their selection criteria and then reserving these windows. Our startup then takes care of the production, installation and removal of the window dressing. We also offer brands audience measurement (pedestrian traffic passed in front of the windows of the campaign) as well as feedback of key information from traders (sell-our carried out during the campaign, level of satisfaction, etc.). In short, everything is done to make life easier for advertisers and make their campaign as efficient as possible.

A booming start to the year and good news related to your 2017 activity?

Yes full!

– In 2017, we donated € 220,000 before tax to merchants who hosted one or more of our campaigns in their window (s)

– The top 10 traders with whom we work the most received more than € 3,700 excl. Tax in 2017.

– We launched a new version of our platform in September 2017 which now allows advertisers to book and manage their entire campaign on our platform, in a few clicks.

– And a little wink: we have also just opened an office at Station F in Paris, the largest startup incubator in the world! Our teams are therefore now spread over Biarritz and Paris… and we are recruiting !!!

What is your roadmap for 2018?

We plan to broaden our campaigns, which are now very focused on wines, champagnes and spirits, to other universes (cosmetics, telephony, perfumes, optics, etc.). We have just integrated the 500 screens of Nicolas stores into our offer. This opens up new fields of possibility for advertisers! We will also offer particularly desirable concept stores in our showcase catalog….

We don’t tell you too much. A startup’s projects are evolving rapidly so follow our news in 2018 carefully because things will change… and quickly!

Station F: conference (followed by a cocktail) on the theme of customer reviews, in our new premises at Station F on April 12 evening.
