Hide Listing Info.
Ok so you have done all the hard work and populated your new vantage website.
The question now is. How do I get these businesses to claim their listing?
The answer is this.
Hide Listing Contact Info.
Without this plugin there really is no incentive to claim the listing. After all, the site is live and there is a listing fully visible with all the business details on there for free. So why bother paying?
That is what I would say and think, so I doubt I would be on my own thinking that way.
So to combat this, install Hide Contact Listing Info!
With this valuable plugin all the visible contact and additional info fields will become blurred so the important contact details cannot now be viewed. The business owner is now no longer benefiting from free advertising. Therefore if they want to gain valuable business it is in their interests to Claim the Listing to unlock all the contact information.
How does it work?.
The plugin creates a ‘blur’ effect on the ad’s contact information and additional area fields.
Hide Listing Map
Hide Listing Contact
Hide Listing Social
Hide Listing Additional Info
The clickable claim listing button is visible along with the Main Pictures, Description Field and Photo area so some non critical information is still able to be viewed.
Take a look at the video below to see the plugin working.
