How do I add my business to the SPM Business Directory?
You go to the SPM website’s business directory and click on “submit a listing” (or follow this link - http://www.southpeninsulamoms.co.za/directory/submit-listing/), select your category and choose a fee plan. Enter your information and submit. It will be pending approval and once it’s approved it automatically gets published on the website.
Now that I am in the Business Directory can I just post to the SPM Facebook Group?
You may post to the SPM Facebook Group on a Wednesday (which is our basic listing advertising day) and only if you add the link (website address) to your listing in the business directory when you post.
How do I add the link when I post to Facebook?
- Go to your listing in the SPM website’s business directory.
- Hover over the URL (website address) and right click and choose COPY
- Go to SPM Facebook Group
- Click on WRITE POST
- Right click and choose PASTE (to paste the link that you just copied)
- Then add any other text or images you would like to. (no contact details)
Why can’t I add my own contact details?
We offer this service to SPM’s for a small admin fee and what we ask in return is that people need to visit our website to obtain your contact details. The point of using the SPM link when you advertise is to create traffic on the SPM website. The idea is that it helps out both parties. You get cheap advertising and we get traffic to our website. When you post your own contact details or post directly from your own FB page, it side-steps the SPM website completely and therefore we get no benefit from your advertising at all.
Why does another company’s logo sometimes pop up on Facebook when I post my link?
The reason this happens, is because Basic Listings don’t have their own logo’s, so Facebook sometimes pulls another image from the website. All you need to do is either click “remove preview” once you’ve posted or email Nicole@southpeninsulamoms.co.za to make sure the generic SPM Basic Listing image is added to your listing.
Why do some listings show their own company logo’s on when posting to Facebook?
Those are premium listings. The benefits of having a premium listing above a basic listing are that you may add as much information as you like, including images/logo and your listing goes to the top of the category in our business directory. You also get 2 days to advertise in the SPM Facebook group per week (Mondays and Wednesdays) and your logo is automatically uploaded when you post your link to Facebook.
How can I upgrade to a Premium Listing and how much does it cost?
Just email Nicole@southpeninsulamoms.co.za and send through your company logo and/or any other images you wish to add and a 300 word description. It will be loaded up for you. The cost is R100 a month, or save by doing an upfront payment for 12 months of R1000.
