Have you checked that your profile does not yet exist in our directory? If your profile does not yet exist in our directory, you can add it by following these THREE simple steps to get your business listing up and running in no time. If you have already created a profile you can skip ahead to Step 2. If your listing has been created by another user, you can skip Step 2.
SIGN IN OR REGISTER
Your profile is your starting point and will provide you with access to your dashboard, the hub for all of your business tools and listings.
Create Your Profile
The first step in creating your business or product listing is to Sign In or Register. You can create an account using your own name or create a profile for your business. Once you have created a profile you can then edit your personal or business information via your very own dashboard. Until you create a business or product listing, all you will have access to in your dashboard is your profile, bookmarked listings and any reviews you have left for other businesses. Take the time to complete your profile.
SELECT YOUR PLAN
NIJIRI Business Network offers three pricing plans: FREE Plan – this plan offers the creation of a basic business profile with very limited features. This plan does not expire. Pro Plan – this plan allows for the creation of one business profile and includes the full set of features that we provide for individual profiles. This plan is based on a 30 days subscription. Plus Plan – this plan allows for the creation of one business profile and includes the full set of features that we provide for individual profiles. This plan is based on a 90 days subscription.
If you are unsure where to get started you can always begin on a FREE plan and upgrade at any time should you require additional features on your listing. After you have signed in, select Add Business from within your dashboard or from the top navigation bar of the site.
A lot of business will simply create a listing for their business as they only offer one product or service. If your business promotes multiple brands, you may however choose to create a separate listing for each of your products. For example, you may offer accommodation and guided tours (so it makes sense to create a separate listing for both products to increase your reach).
Create Your Listing
NIJIRI.com provides an easy to use submission form for creating and publishing your business listing. This form allows you to enter important information about your business or services and it is recommended that you complete as much information as possible including Opening Hours, FAQs, Tags and Keywords as all of this will help in search results.
Most importantly, do not forget to select the category that apply to your business or service and ensure that you upload a correctly formatted Logo (512x512px), Feature Image (1024x660px) and Gallery Images (1024x660px). Remember, a picture speaks a thousand words.
Publish and Pay
You have almost reached the final stage of the listing process. After previewing your listing, it is time to Publish and Pay. At this stage NIJIRI.com offers payment via Paystack and Direct Bank Transfer. If you make payment via Paystack, your listing will be live as soon as the payment has been processed (but it may take longer if there is need for modification and owner would be contacted to make necessary adjustments). If you chose the Direct Bank Transfer method, you will need to wait until funds have cleared before your listing will be published and a Payment Invoice will be e-mailed to your registered e-mail address.
Edit Your Listing
NIJIRI.com provides an easy to use form for editing your existing business or product listing. This form allows you to update important information about your business or service so that your information is always current. If you wish to take advantage of the additional features offered in the Pro or Plus plans, you can easily upgrade at any time.
CLAIM YOUR LISTING
The final step in listing your business or service. Once your listing is live on the website, please preview your listing and ‘Claim‘ it as your own (see How to Claim Your Business). The directory allows all registered users to create business listings. They do not have to own or work in the business. If someone has done you a favour and created your listing for you, take control of your listing by claiming it as your own. The NIJIRI Business Network team will review your claim request and it will then be linked to your account, and you will be able to keep the listing on the FREE plan or upgrade to the plan of your choice if you are not yet on a payment plan.
