Below are some pointers for adding your business to Little Legends, and how you can get the most out of it. If anything below is unclear, or you have some other ideas you’d like to discuss with us, do get in touch
Adding your listing
The easiest way to add your listing is to register as a member (which is free), as you can then add the details for your classes as you wish.
The steps for this are as follows:
- To register, you can go here – the process is hopefully self-explanatory.
- To add details of your classes, you need to login with your new account details.
- Once logged in, go to your page, and click on the “add a place” link in the top right of your own page. This will take you to a form where you can add details of the venues, and the classes. (Adding a postcode for that means we can put it on the map for you).
- That’s it
It’s worth thinking about keeping the “about you” part of your page and the “about your listing” bits separate. Why? There’s a good argument to suggest that parents are more likely trust your comments and ratings if they are personal rather than ‘faceless’ PR. (It’s called theCluetrain.)
In other words, when people find your member page, they tend to want to find out about you. When people find your listing, they tend to want to find out about your listing.
Getting the most out of your listing
There are various ways to get more out of your listing. None are in any way compulsory, but they might be worth thinking about.
- Add comments on nearby places
For instance, if you look on the map of what’s nearby, and see that there’s a cafe that you know local mums frequent, you can comment on it. If people find the cafe, they’ll see your comment, and will find you as a result.
- Bookmark useful places
When people find your page, you might want to give them a list of useful links. Let’s say you run a sports class. Where’s a good cheap place to get children’s football boots near you? What are the good local recreation grounds? You can do that by scouting round your area on Little Legends, and bookmarking useful places. All these things help prospective customers, and so might help you.
- Use Little Legends for free feedback and marketing
Each of our listings can be commented on and rated. You could encourage parents who use your business to rate and review it with us. We don’t censor these – unless they’re blatantly abusive – so it hopefully provides a way of both marketing your classes and getting useful feedback.
- Link to us
If you’ve got your own website you might want to add a link to Little Legends in return for our link to you. Our pagerank affects your pagerank affects our pageranks affects yours … and so on.
These are just a few suggestions to help parents find, trust and recommend your business. Whether or not you think they’re worthwhile, we’ll leave up to you!
