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

Davis Downtown encourages you to link your DavisDowntown.com business listing to your business’s website and then have your website link back to your DavisDowntown.com webpage. The more Davis Downtown members create an online presence with one another the better it is for everyone. Search engines pull information from the businesses with the strongest online presence first. We all know how important it is to be on the first page of these searches.
