03 December 2018 | 0 comments | Posted by Che Kohler in Updates

Creating a business listing on nichemarket

Once you've successfully registered as a nichemarketer, you will have access to some pretty exciting features, and we hope you take full advantage of all nichemarket currently has to offer entrepreneurs looking to break into the digital space.

Getting started

There are a couple of ways to create your listing once you've logged in to nichemarket.

1. You can either click on "Business Profiles" found on the menu on the left-hand side

2. Click "Add a new business" found on your user dashboard

Creating a new business listing

You will now need to complete our 5 step business listing process. We realise it may be a bit of a long process for some, but this is your business. You shouldn't be taking shortcuts when marketing and expecting customers to bang down your door like every day was Black Friday!

Step 1: Overview

In the overview step, we will need you to complete the only mandatory fields to create a business listing, namely:

  • Business name
  • The category your business falls under
  • A short description fo your business (max length 350 characters)

Adding your business listing mandatory fields

You are then free to customise your listing as you please with options like

  • Add your business logo
  • Add specialist features your business offers (Max of 6 features you can list)

Adding a logo and USPs to your business listing

  • Add your trading hours
  • Add special notes regarding trading hours

Adding operating times to your business listing

Once done, click "Save & Continue."

Step 2: Contacts & General info

One of the most critical steps and once we recommend you don't skimp on is contact details. Here you can tell nicheseekers how they can get in contact with your business. Include relevant information such as:

  • Your contact email address 
  • Your website
  • Your landline contact number
  • Your mobile contact number

Adding your contact information to your listing

  • Your business location

Adding your business location to your listing

  • Your social media profiles

Adding your social media profiles to your listing

Once done, click "Save & Continue."

Step 3: Image gallery

The image gallery can be used to showcase your storefront, products, price lists and more. To add a photo to your profile click "Upload photo" and select an image from your desktop or mobile device.

Adding images to your listing


  • You are limited to adding one photo to your image gallery for now so make it a good one. 
  • We accept maximum image size is 1MB
  • We accept JPG and PNG file formats

Once done, click "Save & Continue."

Step 4: FAQ's & additional features

Customers always have questions and often it's the same ones over and over. Instead of having to repeat yourself, why not add the most popular questions and answers to your business listing.

To include another FAQ click the "Add another" button and repeat the process

Note: You can add up to 3 frequently asked questions to your business listing

Adding FAQ's to your listing

Business features

Give potential customers more information about your business and if your service fits their search criteria.

  • Let them know if you're a digital-only business or brick and mortar business
  • You can pick from popular features nicheseekers like to look for when searching for a company (Max 3 features so choose wisely)

Adding additional features to your listing

Once done, click "Save & Continue."

Step 5: Preview & publish

Now all that's left to do is submit your listing to the site. You can give it a quick once-over by clicking publish or submit it to us for moderation. Don't worry if you pick up any mistakes. You can make updates to your business listing at any time.

Preview and publish

Submitting your listing

Now that you've completed the listing process and submitted your business listing for review, we get to spring into action. Our team of moderators will check to see if you crossed your T's and dotted your I's and if everything looks to be in order, you will be approved in no time. 

Now let the nicheseekers come knocking

Listed businesses will now have access to our audience of around 80 000 visitors a month and growing. We will continue to expand our audience and place your business in front of hundreds or even thousands of potential customers each month.

From myself and the team, we wish you all the best with your business and thank you for using nichemarket!
