🌴 A Business Page Listing on islandlike.com offers a comprehensive platform for showcasing your company’s details, products, and services. It’s equivalent to having your own website, but within our directory. Our team creates a custom page for you, complete with photography, copywriting, and an optional 30-second interview or promotional video, featuring your business on YouTube. The listing includes your company’s description, location map, photo gallery, links to all your social media pages, and up to six featured products in our online ‘Storefront’ Section.

It only displays two products in the Online Storefront and is restricted to a single business category and location. Card listings are positioned below page listings in search results.

🌴 Freelancer Listings were initially introduced with a vision to support young entrepreneurs, new business owners, vendors, roadside services, and freelancers working from home. They contain just one social media link and one product in the store. We consider this as our ‘Starter Pack’ to ensure a place within the site and a platform to grow with your business

🌴  A webpage provides various benefits that surpass those of a Facebook page. Firstly, not all individuals use Facebook and its user base primarily comprises of younger age groups. Moreover, Facebook lacks the option to specify the location or products, or to provide links to other social media platforms.

On the other hand, a webpage offers greater control over branding, customization, design, and content ownership in comparison to a Facebook page.
