As a Davis Downtown business, you are invited to create and manage a professional business listing on the Davis Downtown website.

In addition to being listed on this website, your business will be included in the Davis Downtown’s IOS mobile app directory.

This is a FREE service for being a Davis Downtown Business Association member.

You can update your listing as often as you like.
 Here are suggestions on how to promote your business:

  • Add your basic information, i.e., business name, address, contact info, website, and social media
  • Add photos of your location, staff and products
  • Share your latest news, offers and events
  • If you are a restaurant you can add your menu and/or lunch specials
  • Anything else you want to share

The Member Business Listing is a valuable resource if you don’t have a website of your own.  If you are looking for a business in downtown Davis that does not have a website, the Davis Downtown business listing is typically listed first on Google search engine results pages.  Very valuable to the small business owner.

Setting up your Davis Downtown business listing is easy.  Visit our Member Tutorials page for instructions on how to setup your account and claim your business listing.
