Editing Your Listing

Once you have clicked Create Listing, you will be directed to the Edit Listing page. Here you can enter all relevant information about your listing. Several fields are required in order to submit your listing, but many are optional. The more information you can provide about your listing, the more likely your listing is to show up in search results. 


Location

In the location drop-down, you will need to enter the street address in the address fields. P.O. Box addresses are not acceptable.

Once complete, search for your address in the search bar above the map.

Confirm that the map pin is in the correct location.

If the map pin is incorrect, you can adjust the map pin by clicking on the map and sliding to the proper location.


Adding Images

You may add up to six images to display on your listing. 

Click Add Row to add a new image.

Click Add Image to open the Image Uploader.

Your image must be 1800px x 900px.

Once images are uploaded, you may drag the images to reorder. The image at the top will be the first to appear on your listing.


Travel Guide

If your listing is Travel Guide eligible, you will be prompted to include additional information for the Official Missouri Travel Guide. If your listing is not eligible for the Travel Guide, this section will not be visible.

Keep in mind that there is a 140-character limit for the description. If you paste in a longer description, we will edit the description to fit the Travel Guide requirements.


Saving a Draft

At any point in the process, you may save your listing as a draft by clicking the Save Draft button at the bottom. This will save your current progress so that you can come back later to complete your listing.


Preview Listing

When you have finished filling out your information and are ready to see your listing, you can click Preview Listing. This will show the most recently saved draft of your listing. It is recommended that you Save Draft before previewing your listing to see the most up-to-date version.


Submit for Review

When you have completed and previewed your listing, click Submit for Review. If there are required fields that have been left blank, you will be required to complete them before submitting.

The web editor will review the submission and approve it for the live site. During periods of heavy traffic, approval may take a few days. You will receive an email notification when the listing has been approved. Business listings are processed in the order in which they were submitted. Event listings are processed in the order of the event date. Please submit event listings at least two weeks in advance of the start date of the event.
