I. Register

The first step is to submit the registration form. Your registration must be approved before you can login and create your listing.

If you’ve already submitted your registration information and received an email stating that you’re approved, you can login and create a business listing. If it’s been more than 8 business hours since you submitted your information and you have not seen an email, please check your spam folder for emails that have come in since your submission. If you cannot locate the email, please contact us and we will call you (be sure to include your phone number).

II. Create your Listing

1. Login

After your registration is approved, login via the link in the footer, which will take you to the login screen. After logging in using the username and password sent to you in the approval email, PLEASE CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD (via the “Profile” link in the admin bar; see below). An emailed password is potentially compromised, and a new password will help protect your profile from defacement.
