Congratulations on joining Locable and creating an account on our web platform for local marketing, cross-promotion, and collaboration.

Start by Completing your Profile

  1. Access your Company Data. Information is broken into a few different pages that include your Business Basics with your logo, hero image (1140x248px on desktop, always 248px tall), description and link, Contact Information, your Business Hours, and Social media profiles.

  2. Access popular activities based on Marketing 3-4-5™'s 3 reasons to do marketing: Customers, Team, Community

  3. Link your Locable account to your Google Business Profile - this helps your Locable account become the single source of truth and the only place you need to make updates.

  4. You can then create calendars, directories, and more - here you'll choose which businesses to 'follow' and Support (later you'll want to invite them to Support you back).

  5. Post content to your account to appear on your website, share to social media, and Express Email Newsletters plus any Supporters will promote it for you automatically - we support Events, Quick Posts (mini blog posts), Jobs & Volunteer opportunities, and more.

  6. Access your public Locable Listing - this is where your content and information live if you don't have a website. When people promote you in directories they create on their website, it will open your Listing and share your information.
    NOTE: if you're a website customer your account will link to your Website.

  7. Mobile menu toggle - if you're on mobile you can access the left-hand navigation by clicking this icon in the upper left corner.

  8. View recent Customer Reviews or use our tools to collect more

  9. Review recent form submissions and use our tools to create forms and an Instant Contact Page for your website

Above is Locable's listing, the more complete your information the better it will appear and the more engagement you'll receive.

There are a number of great features available to you but we'd suggest that you start by completing your business profile to ensure your free listing is complete and attractive while ensuring that you're well-represented when local businesses cross-promote you.

Once you've made it this far, you can take advantage of the other marketing tools included in your account.
