Once You're In!

Once you are approved, start by clicking the "Manage Your Listing" button on the left side of your listing to access your dashboard.

The dashboard will show you several tools:

  • Your Stats
  • Edit listing
  • Manage Photos & Media
  • Reviews
  • Free Tools
  • Paid Tools 
  • Contact Sales

Your Stats:

See who rated and reviewed your business. And who's following your listing. You can e-mail your customers to seek out more reviews, and link the Directory to your Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Edit Listing:

Add photos, website information, hours of operation, contact information and more under the "Basic Info" tab. Some of this information cannot be changed, but you can request a new description if you think your business is inaccurately described.

Choose "Extra Info" to add information like the founding date of your business, what kinds of payments are accepted, if there's street parking or a lot, and more.

Manage Photos & Media:

Add and edit photos and choose which image is featured. If you have video or PDFs, you would add that here, too.


You can see what people have to say about your business and respond to each review personally.

Free Tools:

Post events and add job openings to our classifieds section, also known as the "Marketplace".

Paid Tools:

You can upgrade your listing with a video profile, add a message from the owner and become a featured business on the "Places" page for a fee. You can learn more about these options and how to get in touch with a sales team member.

Have your customers engaged, rate your business and talk with them right on Patch!
