There are six steps to creating your Basic ADvantage Marketplace listing:
First make sure that you are in the ADvantage Marketplace directory section.
1. Click on "Add Your Business Listing" button found on the left hand side of the Advantage Marketplace Home page and on nearly every other page on the site.
You may then need to sign up as a site member as per previous sign up instructions in this FAQ/How To's section, before you can add your business listing.
if you've already signed up to become a site member then just login using your user name and password that you chose during the sign up process.
To set up your ADvantage Marketplace account to create your business profile, promote your business and find new customers enter your details. You’ll need to make sure you fill in all boxes that are required.
Step 2: Select a business Category
On the sign-up page select the CATEGORY that best suits your business or industry.
Step 3: Business details
Enter your company name, select your country. This will appear at the top of your ADvantage Marketplace business profile. Now fill in the remaining information.
Enter your zip/postcode and address. Type in the URL of your website address (without adding the "http://" portion) if you have one.
Enter your your phone and fax number, business email address if required.
You may enter at least two contact names separated by coma and space.
Upload a logo or image to display on your ADvantage Marketplace business profile. For best results, the image should ideally be 230 x 230 pixels and smaller than 200 kb). If your logo already has a transparent background then the best thing to do would be to use a photo editor such as Photoshop to create a white background (or some other colour that may work better with your logo design) sized 230 x 230 pixels behind your logo. Allowed file types are: png, gif, jpg, jpeg
To upload, click on "Choose File", then browse to the logo or image on your computer. The image will automatically appear in your company profile when you save the information at the end of the business submission procedure.
Step 4: Your Company Description
Write a paragraph or two about your business. This will appear on your ADvantage Marketplace business profile homepage and is one of the first things potential customers will see.
Step 5: Your location
Add your location by entering your city and state. You can drag the marker to more accurately pinpoint your companies address. If you know your exact Latitude and Longitude (although not absolutely necessary) you can enter it in the appropriate boxes located below the map. :-)
Step 6: Welcome
Click SAVE to create your listing. That’s it! Your Basic ADvantage Marketplace listing is ready to view and update.
Bonus step! Now’s your chance to let your contacts know that you’ve signed up. Invite them to view your ADvantage Marketplace listing and perhaps join you on this website!
