Calling all Napa business owners! Have you claimed your listing on Napa Patch? You can take charge of your own page and put up events, sales and notices about what's happening at your store.
Local businesses get extra bonuses when they claim their free listings.
To claim a listing, sign into the site and search for your business in our business directory under Places. Underneath the photos there, you'll see a box with the question: Do you own or manage this location?
Just click Claim it! Within a short time, someone from Patch will contact you to verify your authenticity. You'll then be approved as the business owner or manager and will see a "Manage Your Listing" button.
From there, you have lots of options to add photos, see your statistics, edit your listing and reach your customers.
Here are the tools you'll see and what they mean:
Here you can see how many users have rated, reviewed or follow your listing. You can email your customers to thank them, seek out more reviews and link your Patch Place to your Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Add photos, website information, hours of operation, contact information and more under the "basic info" tab. Not all the information can be changed on the spot, but you can request a new description if you think your business is inaccurately described.
Choose "extra info" to add information like the founding date of your business, what kinds of payments you accept, parking information and more.
Manage Photos & Media:
Here you can add and edit photos and choose which image is featured. If you have a video or PDFs, you would add that here.
You can see what people have to say about your business and respond to reviews.
For a fee, you can upgrade your listing with a video profile, add a message from the owner and become a featured business on the Places page.
But it's free to claim your listing today, to help keep Napa Patch users up to date with your company and keep your listing looking fresh.
Don't see your business? . Starting Sept. 27, we're expanding our reach to include Yountville, St. Helena and Calistoga.
