Your premium listing will appear in one of the top positions in at least one category, and will be shown with priority in all categories, with a larger image. (free listings appear at the bottom, and can usually only be found through the search)
Premium listings get exposure and get featured on various pages of our site and apps. That's why premium venue listings get up to 10 times more traffic than regular listings.
As Premium Listings client we'll create a WeChat group and you can chat with our Editors and Listings Manager at any time, to discuss updates on your listings, events and deals support.
Our editors will subscribe to your WeChat and social media and actively list your events and deals on our site, and actively make sure all information is correct. You can have the peace of mind that your venue listing is always up to date.
Premium listings show without banner advertisements, in a nicer more premium looking design. You can choose which picture you want to display in the first position.
Whenever we write an article about a topic that your venue has some relevance in, we'll make sure you'll get a good chance to be included.
New Spring Menu? New GM running the place? Premium venues can upload their own news, deals, and press releases onto their own venue listing. Our Editors will review submissions and select some to write about each week.
Only with a Premium Venue Listing you show a QR code for your own WeChat account and link to your own Instagram, Facebook, Weibo or Linkedin Page
Minimum 12 months
The Premium Venue Listing does not include any articles about your venue. Our editors will however be more aware of your business and make sure it will get considered every time we write an article that covers your area of business. You will also have a direct contact person at SmartShanghai so you can pitch us ideas that you think might be interesting for our readers.
Yes. Your listing will be upgraded on our website, our iOS/Android app and the WeChat MiniProgram. However, not all users run the latest versions of our apps, and it's possible that not 100% of our users will see your listing as a premium listing.
Yes. We'll share a monthly overview how of many times your listing has been shown and how many users clicked into your listing. However, since your listing will show in different apps (our iOS/Android app, the WeChat MiniProgram, the website) the reporting is currently not 100% accurate.
You can select on category, e.g. "Taylors" where your listing will show as one of the top results (if there are multiple premium listings in one category, they will be ordered by popularity). Besides that, your listing will be shown with priority in searches and when users browse venues by location. Besides that, your listing will appear with a larger image so that it stands out from other listings.
SmartShanghai never fakes any numbers and we are committed to honesty: We are not able to tell you how many new customers you'll get from a premium venue listing. It very much depends on how attractive your business is and how much demand there is for your product. A Premium Venue Listing simply means that more of our readers will see your listing, but it depends on you how many of our readers turn into customers. And while some categories on SmartShanghai are seen by hundreds of visitors every day, other categories receive less traffic.
Photography is not included in this package. If you already have photos you can upload them directly. If you don't have professional photos available please check out our venue photography package.
Editors Descriptions are, as it says, a description of your venue written by our editor. The description is neutral, descriptive, informative, as a service to our users. You may let us know what you think is important for our readers to know about the venue, but ultimatively it's up to our discretion what we write.
