Cholla launches its virtual experience marketplace to help local businesses adapt to the pandemic
Cholla is a startup transforming the way people build and maintain relationships in the new era of remote interactions
Montreal, Quebec / January 20, 2021 - Cholla Inc. (“Cholla”) today announces the launch of its new online marketplace to enable remote groups to share virtual interactive experiences from the comfort of their own homes. Cholla’s marketplace empowers small businesses and entrepreneurs to reinvent their offerings or create new ones around their unique expertise, goods or services in order to better succeed in an increasingly digital-first world.
During the coronavirus pandemic, most in-person activities have migrated to virtual, ushering in a new era of remote work and relationship building. This shift in the way people interact with each other has had a profound impact on both the way people work together and the way businesses sell their products and services.
Cholla’s marketplace is a one-stop shop for a selection of fun and interactive virtual experiences for groups looking to build and maintain human connections while avoiding the perils of ‘zoom fatigue’. Cholla offers a seamless way to search for available experiences, review customer ratings and book an experience.
To provide these experiences, Cholla empowers its ‘Experience Hosts’ to easily create a new virtual offering for their business by accessing its online distribution platform and by providing all of the necessary tools to manage availability, bookings and payments through a simple dashboard.
“Cholla’s platform enables me to teach baking to people I would have never been able to reach before and it helps keep the business afloat by providing a new revenue stream.” - Jessica McGovern, from The Lincoln Apartment Bakery.
During the soft launch of the platform, over 600 participants from 40 companies and private groups enjoyed a Cholla experience with 91% of surveyed participants indicating that they would recommend their Cholla experience to friends or family.
