How to Register Your Business On TripAdvisor
Before we begin with the actual discussion on the TripAdvisor register business, we would like to point out one of the most common confusions:
What’s the difference in claiming your business and listing your business?
To check that, simply type the name of your business in the box. If it appears in the results in the drop down, a traveler or someone else in your business has already initiated a listing. Select your business from the drop down and then click the “Claim Your Business” button to confirm that you are affiliated with the property.
However if your business is not listed under the drop down then you will have to register/list your business. You can click on “Get Listed Now” Link shown at the bottom to get started.
Request a Listing
Here is a Quick Overview For Each Section:
Listing Information For Your Property
These also help TripAdvisor display your business in the right category with relevant and detailed information your business. Let’s use accommodations as an example. You can see list of other categories here:
Accommodations: As an accommodation owner, your property will be listed in this specific section. Here are some of the specifics you will need to provide:
Offer Something More?
You want to let the travelers know if you offer something more to help your hotel stand out. Here is a chance to do so.
You’ll also be able to provide additional information on amenities including whether your property offers complimentary breakfast, suites, tennis, golf, beach/pool access, fitness center, internet access, etc. All these details will be added to the amenities section of your listing and will help travelers research what they can expect at your accommodation.
Add a Property Description
Here are some of things to keep in mind in writing your property description:
• What’s your Unique Selling Point? What sets your property apart from your competitors around you?
• Also say little about your location. What makes it appealing? There is always something unique about your location. Is it close to freeway? Is it close to nightlife? near great restaurants? business district?
Choose a Photo
[Note: just make sure that the photos are a .jpg or .gif. Also TripAdvisor does not accept images with borders, logos or files that are larger than 100kb.]
Submit the Listing
Once you’ve confirmed that all the information you provided is correct, click the ‘Submit’ button to complete this process!
What Happens Next?
