Questions About Listings
Where is a good place to begin?
Go to the Look menu
If you want to see some example listings, go to the Look menu. You can also see a listing for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart that shows how a lot of diverse listings on Mozart’s List can be linked together and all show from the main business listing. There are secondary business listings, a job posting, an instrument listing, a resume, and more. To get some ideas about categories to list in, see the category pages under the categories menu. Let us know if you have questions. We are here to help.
Can I link my listings together?
Yes! They can all show together on Mozart's List
All listings can link back to your main business listing.
When you are filling out the listing form for classifieds, employment, events, and resume listings you will see a field that says ‘Link to Business.’ Fill in the name of your business listing and wait until the name of your business listing shows under the field and click on it.
If someone goes directly to a classified listing that you have linked to your business listing they will also see a link to your business listing.
Organizations can show upcoming events, merchandise, employment opportunities and use each listing as a ready to go promotion across social media. Go to W.A. Mozart’s page to see all of his example listings attached to his main business listing. If you would like assistance with setting up your listings, let us know. We are here to help.
Can I have captions on images?
Yes! You can put photo credits & information
When you are adding photos there is an option to add credits. These include title and/or caption. After you load the image (near the bottom of the listing form), if you mouse over the image you will see the option to edit or delete the image. Click on the edit icon and you will see a field for title and a field for caption. You can use one or both. The caption is best for the photo credit. To view your title / caption, you can click on ‘preview listing’ which is next to the ‘submit listing’ button at the bottom of the form. You will need to have completed the required fields for this to work. Scroll down to the image area below the text description and click on any image. Then mouse over the image and you will see the title / caption. Let us know if you have questions or need assistance. We are here to help.

How can I avoid using my address?
You can just use your city, no problem.
While it is important to have a location on Mozart’s List, you don’t need to use a street address. Just put your city in the address field. The other fields should automatically fill with your country and region. In some cases, you may need to fill in your city, region, or postal code manually.

Will everyone be able to see my email address?
No, we use a contact form
On Mozart’s List we use a contact form, so if someone is contacting you they will not see your email address. Of course if you want to show your address, you can put it in your description.
Mozart’s List also gives members the option of having members they are connected to on the site contact them through a private messenger.
If you have more questions, please let us know.
What is the Social Importer?
Bringing existing information into a listing
If you have an existing business or event listing on Facebook you can use the social importer on the listing form for business listings and event listings. The information that fills in automatically will still need to be edited and checked. For example, if you have a website listed in Facebook without the ‘https://’ prefix, you will need to add it on the form for Mozart’s List. Check the images that are imported. Sometimes there are multiple copies of the same image. If you have not updated the information on your Facebook page this might be a good opportunity to see what is there. Let us know if you have questions. We are here to help.
Why are 'tags' required on Mozart's List forms?
Specific terms for being found in 'search'
Tags can make your listing easier to locate through search. For example, if you are a pianist, you might have in the title of your listing, your name, then piano as your subtitle. Then in tags you can add ‘pianist,’ your country, a composer, or a specific label. Tags are ways to elaborate on ‘categories’, and any other text in your listings. Use tags to augment the associations of your listing. Please contact us if you have more questions.
Can I get help making listings?
Yes! Just ask us
Whether you would like a second pair of eyes or just want some input on your listing, we want to help. If you are unsure of text, categories, or need some advice about making the most of your listing on Mozart’s List, just ask us.
How does search work on Mozart's List?

Mozart’s List is a series of different types of listings with approximately 300 categories between them.

What can I use my profile for?
