How it works?
Boat owners visit BoatEasy looking for help with things aboard their boat. Whether you offer a product or service, be sure to take the time to create a post that details what you offer and the areas you offer it in. While optional, including pictures of your product or service, a little about yourself, and any other relevant details will help make your post stand out.
Posting an Offering
Quality Photos - One of the most important aspects of creating a high quality post is including photos of your product or service. Include photos relating to what you’re offering such as before and after pictures from a recent project or pictures of what you’re offering. We realize this can be difficult for some services but having several quality pictures helps customers get a better sense of what you’re offering and makes your post stand out from those without pictures. In addition to photos, if you have YouTube videos you can embed them directly in your post.
Clear and Readable Description - Having a great description of your business is key. Your description doesn’t have to be long, what it does need to be is easily readable. Feel free to include details such as your location and the distance you’re willing to travel, availability, your experience, and any thing else you think is relevant. Be descriptive of the services you’re offering and give potential customers a reasonable idea of what your pricing is.
Creating Verification - Already have a website or Facebook profile for your business? Great, you can include a link to it in your post on BoatEasy by copy and pasting it into your listing. Potential customers can then follow it in order to learn more about your business. BoatEasy also offers users the option to create a profile where you can provide a brief bio about yourself and your experience. Creating a profile, linking your post to your site or page, or doing both help establish trust with potential customers.
Offering Multiple Services - Want to offer multiple services to boaters? Perfect! BoatEasy’s platform is designed to make it easy for users to search for a wide variety of services through categories. Creating a listing in the appropriate category makes it easy for users searching for a specific service to find it by searching by their location in that category. So for example if your business offer boat detailing as well as boat cleaning, you can create one listing in the boat detailing category and another within the appropriate boat cleaning category. Additionally, if you decide to offer multiple listings, you can include links to your other listings on BoatEasy in your posts allowing users to easily view your other offerings.
Optimizing Your Location - BoatEasy's platform uses Google Maps for location data. Make sure the location you selected for your post is close to where you actually work. Someone searching for services by location will view results by distance from the location they searched for so it can help, especially if you are a mobile service provider, to choose a location close to where you usually work.
