Step 3: Add You Listing Details

Selecting one of the listing type options will bring you to a form, depending on which type you chose. The forms will differ slightly based on what type of information is relevant to the listing.

For a Business Listing, there are eight sections, each with a few different fields to fill out. Fields marked with (optional) are not required to submit your listing.

The first is the General section, which is broken down into three parts. The Title, the Tagline and the Description.

Title – The name of your Business. This is the primary name that will be displayed with your listing.

Tagline – This is a subheading that displays below your business name. Use this for your business slogan, or any other short message you might want visitors to see immediately.

Description – A description of your business. Use this place to let visitors know about you, what you offer or any other additional information you’d like them to see that isn’t covered in the basic form. This information is displayed on your main listing page.

The next section is Images. The right images can tell a visitor a lot about your business. Be sure to fill this section with photos that will draw people in!

The Images section is made of three parts:

Logo – Your business’ logo goes here. This image displays in several places around WeROpenChautauqua.us. It identifies you on the map, is at the top of your listings in searches, an displays on your main listing page. Note: Be aware that this image is cropped into a circle, so if your image is too long or tall in one direction, parts of it may be cut off. You will be able to preview how your listing displays before you submit it.

Cover Image – This image will display as a header across your listing in both searches, and on your main listing page.

Gallery Images (optional) – Here you can submit additional images to display on your main listing page. This is a great place to feature signature products, photos of your location or even photos of your staff!

Step 4: Preview and Submit Your Listing

Once you have filled out all required fields, check the reCAPTCHA box to prove you are not a robot. From there, click the orange Preview button to view a preview of your listing.
