How do I create a business advert?
There are options for you to create your own adverts or have us manage adverts on your behalf. The number of adverts that can be created will be determined by the package chosen. When you manage your adverts and one has expired it stays in your account for you to use again by adding a new date then publish.
A maximum of 1 adverts can be posted on a particular date, but you can place adverts on subsequent dates in advance to the maximum of your allowance.
A date and a time needs to be added to all created adverts to show the consumer when the offer is available. For example a show or live sports event will be promoted for the time and the date ie 10-9-2017 at 3pm till 5 pm. A shop for example promoting a sale, would add the times and date the shop is open till whilst the offer is available.
All adverts show in advance of the date the offer/event is avaiilable then expires when the advert times expire.
By adding a new date and time to the same advert after it is expired will show live again on OFFiGO in advance of the new date.
If your advert starts on a said date and finishes the next day ie nightclubs open Saturday 9pm till Sunday 3am. Then the end date of the promotion will need to be added as the next day at 3am.
How do i create a job post?
For business, subscribers only, just add your business contact details accordingly on the page. Once the content of the advert and the chosen categories are added then publish the post. All adverts expire in 14 days or sooner if the job is filled before this time. You can manage all adverts by clicking all jobs from the jobs listing menu. A support document is available in the jobs section for further assistance.
How do I add images?
All images that are added to your profile or adverts are done so by clicking ADD MEDIA. Simply upload a new image and follow the directions on the screen. In adverts and profiles, certain size requirements are prompted on the screen so your image is best shown on OFFiGO. Smaller images can be copied and pasted directly onto posts in the main description area.
Every business can automatically be rated and reviewed by consumers. Reviews are monitored and once moderation has been agreed will show live on the site. If a review is deemed unsuitable as being aggressive or includes swear or of a threatening nature won't go live but a copy will be emailed to the business concerned.
The review box icon in the business account and by email will notify businesses you of any new reviews added.
Note to reviewers, posts do not go live immediately they must be moderated first, which may take 1-2 working days.
What is the difference between creating an advert and a profile?
When you create a profile it is where you add all the details of the business ie contact details, address, logo, description of the services, images and opening times. Also adding social media links, website address and other appropriate information which explains who you are.
An advert is your sales message, the quick message that may be an offer, service or event that attracts the consumer to buy from you. ie a pub may add "Live football tonight" with a description of the match etc, in an advert. Yet in the profile, it adds all the services etc about the pub.
