Small Business Owner? 'Claim' Your Listing on Patch

Managing your business listing helps spread the word about your great product or services-- and helps you show up in searches by mobile devices.

If you own a business in Shaker Heights, check out our Directory tab, and claim your listing for free.

In the Directory tab, readers can find your business's description, hours, accepted payment methods and much more. Our registered users can add events that will happen at your business, review your product or services, and rate them on a five-star system.

If you 'claim' your listing -- in other words, if you decide to mange the listing -- you can add your own information about sales, specials and more. You can even add your own photos! 

Watch the video for an easy, step-by-step guide that will show you how to claim your listing.

Here are some other benefits to claiming your listing with Patch:

  • Did you know that Apple's voice-activated search on iPhone and iPad uses local business reviews -- not just web sites -- to decide search results? Make sure you show up in mobile search by creating a well-presented business listing. Patch can help you do that! 
  • You can check how many people have rated, reviewed or followed your listing. You can email your customers to get more reviews, and even link the Patch Place to your Facebook or Twitter account. How cool is that?
  • You can edit your listing. Maybe you changed your hours and you want to let your customers know. Maybe you'll be closed on a certain day. You can even add extra info that may not be in the basic listing.
  • You can add more photos or post a video as often as you want. You can even add a PDF of your menu, sale ad or pamphlet.
  • You can list your job openings.
