Review the package offers then choose the one you want by clicking the “Select” button to the right of the description.

We typically approve all listings within a 24 hour period. Please note this.
Step 5: Set up Your Listing. On the green bar you now want to click the My Listings link. It should show a “0” in black indicating that no listing has been set up yet. If you buy a package with multiple listings you will need to add a new listing per category each time. To create your listing click the “+” sign as shown below.
Next step is to choose your Listing Type or “Category” you want to be listed under. Again for multiple listing packages you need to create a listing for each category and choose one category for that listing. You can not select more than one category or Listing Type per listing.
Now you need to create what the viewers will see on the public side of the site. Please note that your personal profile info will appear automatically at the bottom of your listing so you do not need to name your listing your name unless that is the only name you go by. Consider what title is attractive to parents or put your company name here. Then please create a description of what you do and your services, background, testimonials, etc.
You can also add content from your website or social media pages under this “Additional Info” tab. It is not required but is available if you need additional space to share content with viewers.
If you have a video link that you would like to add please feel free to enter the URL link to that video here.
Although you do not have to list your actual physical address unless you wish to you will need to select a “Location” which is the state you operate in, choose Canada or International if you are outside the US. In the next feild where it says address if you want to list your physical address enter it here. If you leave it blank it will default to NJ. You can choose to type Philadelphia, PA USA in the field and the map will give a general location within Philadelphia without revealing your actual address.
