Why join Discover Bradenton?
Here are a few of benefits you’ll receive.

Grow Your Social

The world is more virtual now than ever. Want to grow your social following? We’ve got you covered!

Our system makes it easy for users to share your listings and events to their social media feeds with a click of a button. You can also include links to all of your social media platforms so users can find and follow you right from your listing.

Are you active on Twitter? Add an RSS feed1 so your Tweets show up in your listing in real-time.

Get Noticed!

Make sure your business shows up in local area searches by adding a neighborhood to your listing and choose from multiple categories and tags to help users find you. Add a photo gallery and a video link to make your listing more exciting so users spend more time engaging with your business.

Gain even more exposure by sponsoring Discover Bradenton contests and giveaways. We’ll feature you on our website and social media platforms and handle all of the promotion for you!

Platinum members get maximum exposure with “Featured” listings and events that show up on the first page of the Discover Bradenton website and are promoted across our social media platforms.

Promote Your Events

Do you offer classes or host workshops, festivals, or other types of events? All paid members receive unlimited access to our event calendar.

Event listings include a detailed description, photos, registration links, and more!  Users can also add your event to their list of favorites and even leave a review!

Don’t have time to manage your events? Upgrade to a Platinum membership and we’ll take care of all your listings for you and promote your events on our social media channels.

Grow your Business

Attract new customers by adding a discount or offer to your listing.

You can also easily interact with customers by adding your contact information to your listing and including a link to your website and a clickable email button.

Do you use an online calendar system like Calendly or Appointy? Drop your link and users can schedule a meeting with you right from your listing!

Improve Your Reputation

Did you know that 90% of customers read online reviews before visiting a business?

All of our business listings feature user reviews, giving you another outlet to gather positive feedback and user testimonials. All Gold and Platinum members will also receive access to our proprietary customer feedback and review system.

Not only will we help you actively solicit feedback and gather positive reviews, but we also offer an embeddable ratings badge that you can add to your website to gain additional credibility.
