How do I create or change my Surrey-Online webpage and is it complicated?
This is the fun bit! We have made it simple for you to create or update your Surrey-Online webpage. You will be creating a webpage to promote your business and can include your logo and up to four pictures too. Remember, at any stage before you finish, you can save what you have done (to see how it looks online) by pressing the SAVE CHANGES button at the bottom. Let's get started.

Make sure you are logged in with your user name and password. Then click MODIFY LISTING at the top. You will see the various elements of your webpage. First check your company location on the map. You can simply drag and drop it to position it exactly! Then you should enter the text for your webpage. The best way is to prepare it in a simple text only format (such as in notepad) and paste it into the blank page. Then use the formatting tools above it to give it the best appearance by adding font types, colours, sizes, bold, italics, bullet points and numbering etc. Similar to using say Word. For the top package, Business Builder Max, you can have up to 250 words. A counter below the text box shows you a live count of words used. You can also easily create links to your or other websites within this page. Next decide if you have any special offers or coupons you would like to create. Simply type the wording in.

Now upload you company logo. Make sure the logo is saved in advance on your computer and is ideally not more than 250 x 74 pixels. Click the first square box for the LOGO IMAGE. You will be able to browse on your computer to where you have the logo saved. Do the same for up to four pictures you want to include. Experiment with the size of the other images to see how they look online.

You will also see your chosen business categories and selected towns, which you can alter as you wish.

Using the buttons at the bottom, remember to save your changes. You can turn your page off till it's ready or click ACTIVATE to put it online.
