Tips and Tricks

  • Fill out the 'Activites and Services' section of the profile fully to ensure users understand who you are and what you do
  • No business works alone - list your partners in the 'I Have Worked With' section
  • Think about what specific keywords someone might use to search for your business and be sure to include those keywords in your 'Description of Work and Background' section
  • If you have a venue to rent, fill out the 'Venue for Rent/Use' section with fees, features, and other important information
  • Highlight the accessibility features for both your services and your venue space in the 'Accessibility of Services' and the 'Venue Available for Rent/Use' section of the profile
