LISTING FEATURES

Those looking for Artists, Businesses, Events, Artworks and all the other types of Listings our platform showcases, can easily find the appropriate results by utilizing our search and filter options. 
We encourage Listing owners to fill out their Listings as completely as possible, including optional fields, in order to have the best chance of being discovered.

To help people easily reach Listing owners and to help get Listings found in search engines, providing a Name, an Address and/or a Phone Number is critical information to include in a listing.

This information is included in Listing pages in an actionable format (ie. click-to-call) where possible, to make things even more convenient for users of the platform.

For Listings that makes sense to include the results on a Map (ie. Business Profiles & Events) Listing owners can have their establishment’s address or the event’s address shown for quick reference, as well as shown on a map, providing quick access to directions for users.

Members that are logged into our platform, can review Listings to help other members. Users can give star-based reviews so this is a good opportunity for Listing owners to built up their reputation by accumulating positive ratings and reviews.

Reviews are always moderated, can only be submitted by registered users, and Listing owners cannot review their own Listings.

From your account dashboard, you can easily view valuable information about your overall Listing performance on our platform.

The analytics are laid out in a clean, simple fashion, including the following metrics, determined by the visitor’s IP address:

  • Listing Views (unique): The first time a unique visitor views your Listing.
  • Listing Views: If a unique visitor ever looks at your Listing again, this counts as an additional view.
  • Button Clicks: There are various actionable buttons on our several Listing types. For example, a button to Call you, to send you an Email, redirect to your Website and more. These buttons, are tracked so you can easily see how many people have initiated a contact from our platform.

Links to Social Networks can be added to Listings and users will be redirected to your Social Media Profiles in a new browser tab. 

Some of the Social Media Links supported are: Facebook, X, Instagram, Youtube, Snapchat, Tumblr, Reddit, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Soundcloud and more.

You can easily embed your YouTube or Vimeo Videos into your Listing. Just grab the video’s URL and paste it to the appropriate field when creating your Listing.

If you are creating a Artist Profile Listing as a Musician or a DJ, having a Spotify player right in your Listing is a must. To do that, you must copy the embed link from your Spotify channel, and paste it on the appropriate field on our platform while creating your Listing. 

In case you don’t know how to get your Spotify Link, go to your Spotify:

  1. Click on the three dots next to your profile, playlist, or song […] 
  2. Click Share
  3. Click the Arrow ►
  4. Copy Link

You can include a link of your own website, allowing you to gain more exposure and visits from people who found you through our platform and marketing efforts. Not bad for a FREE service!

Images and visual content are ideal for communicating your message. The right cover image could be what makes someone ultimately click on your Listing!

Premium-level Listings are automatically granted “verified” status on our platform and will have a badge displayed.
