When we told you about the new features in the Spotfav app we mentioned what we consider one of the most important one: PLACES.
Places is the way to know which places you should visit around a spot, a serie of businesses that can help you in your visit to a spot: hotels, shops, restaurants…
From now on, everytime you check out a spot you can also check the commercial offers around it, where to eat, where to sleep, where are the cool shops located…
On the website, once you are browsing your favorite spot click on the Places tab, and the whole list of close places will be shown.
These places have been uploaded by any user who visited them, including some information like the place name, a category (restaurant, surfschool, hotel, shop…), and a picture.
How do you create a place and how do they work? Easy!
Any user visiting a restaurant, hotel, shop, etc. can create it as place using the mobile application. The newly created place will stay awaiting moderation, and our webmasters will accept it as soon as possible.
To create a new place you can click the places button on the smartphone app, then (if it’s not still created) you can click new place.
A new screen will appear including a form where you can introduce all the information about this place.
2) Once a place is created any user located on it will be able to post a Check-in on it, including a comment and a picture.
3) The owner of a place can claim it following the link Claim this place, shown under the main picture.
A claim request will be generated, which will be approved or denied after an ownership checking process.
4) Once confirmed the owner will take the control of his place, and will be able to change the picture, write a description about it, and start creating special offers and deals
5) The owner will also be able to attach deals to the sidebar of any spot’s camera section, so that users can see them easily. To do this, the owner need publisher bonus. If you are the owner of a place and you want to attach your offers to a cam, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will give you some bonus to do it! :-)
So, from now on, find out more, in a easy way, about all the places around a spot that you should visit, benefit from the best local offers, comment your experience and enjoy sharing images of it!
Also, if you own a local business then get the best of our platform by offering special discounts to get new customers and stay in touch with them in the future, and read what other users have commented about your place.
Hey folks… Spotfav is now more interactive than ever!
