Have a Business in Waltham? Claim Your Listing

A listing for your business is already on our site. But we want your help to make it better.

Did you know Waltham Patch has listings for local businesses?

They include descriptions, hours, accepted payment methods and more, and also give readers the opportunity to post reviews.

Our team of editors and freelancers wrote them ourselves when we launched in December 2010. But we want you, the business owner, to "claim" yours, so you can add your own photos, links, and update the exisiting information as things change.

Businesses are also invited to post their events in our calendar by using the form here. 

Here's how to claim your listing:

Owners or managers should search for their business listing and select "claim you listing" in order to make updates to the page. A form will pop up asking for your name, contact information, and proof of ownership.

Within a few days, someone from Patch should contact you to verify your authenticity, and then you'll be approved as the business owner. Once approved, you'll have a "Manage Your Listing" button on the top of your Places page. Click the button to be taken to your dashboard.

From the dashboard, you can make changes and updates to your listing. On the left side of the dashboard you have several options: Your Stats, Edit listing, Manage Photos & Media, Reviews, Free Tools, Paid Tools, and Contact Sales.

Your Stats:

Here you can see how many users have rated, reviewed or follow your listing. You can e-mail your customers to seek out more reviews, and link the Patch Place to your Facebook or Twitter account.

Edit Listing:

Add photos, website information, hours of operation, contact information and more under the "basic info" tab. Some of this information cannot be changed, but you can request a new description if you think your business is inaccurately described.

Choose "extra info" to add information like the founding date of your business, what kinds of payments you accept, if there's street parking or a lot, and much more.

Manage Photos & Media:

Here you can add and edit photos and choose which image is featured. If you have video or PDFs, you would add that here, too.

Reviews:

You can see what people have to say about your business.

Free Tools:

Post events and add job openings to our classifieds section, also known as the Marketplace.

Paid Tools:

You can upgrade your listing with a video profile, add a message from the owner and become a featured business on the Places page for a fee. Learn more about these options and how to get in touch with a sales team member.

So claim your listing today to help keep Patch users up to date with your company and keep your listing looking fresh. And if you claim your listing, email me at Ryan.Grannan-Doll@patch.com and I'll write up a brief feature about your business and what makes it special. You can't beat that!
