Make a Listing

Starting with Materials

What to have ready

Have at least one photo / image ready to upload. Mozart’s List is very image-centric. All listings show with images. 

Have some description text about your listing. (The length limit is dependent on your subscription level).

If you have a video or SoundCloud type audio to include, have the URL ready to add to your listing. (The number of video / audio examples you can use is dependent on your subscription level).

Let’s get started!

Making a Business Listing

Your place in the Business Directory

Choose ‘ADD Business’ from the ‘List It’ menu.  Mark the listing as ‘claimed’ if you are the owner / manager of the listing. Otherwise this can be left blank if it is for someone else to claim later.

Add your name or the name of your organization for the title.

Add the subtitle, which can be what you primarily do, what your organization does, or even a tag line about your work (ex. One of the best destination festivals in the world).

Add your description text. 

Add some tags. You can put your main focus (ex. piano), your geographical location (ex. Berlin), or any terms that might be valuable in finding your listing through search. 

Location, Location, Location

Mozart's List is international

Put in your location. If you would rather keep your street address private, just use your city. Mozart’s List is geographical. Listings can be used to build community for classical music in your area. Teachers, instruments, schools, orchestras, events, places to live & work—everything that is a resource for the classical music community. 

Put your address or city in the location field. Many places will fill the rest automatically, otherwise do your best filling in the rest.

Email & Category

How will you be found?

Add your email address. Your email address will not show. Instead, when someone clicks on the email tab they will see a contact button for a contact form. 

Choose categories that apply. (The number of categories is dependent on your subscription level). While you only need to check the subcategories, the main categories will be checked automatically when your listing is published (and will be counted towards your category limit). For example, if you play trumpet, you check ‘Brass’ and the ‘Musical Artists’ main category will be checked after you publish your listing. If you go back and edit your listing you will see both are checked. You can scroll through the window to see the many listing categories. Underneath the category window is a list of how many categories you can use for each subscription level. This information is also on the membership page. Categories will be a primary way for your listing to be found on Mozart’s List. If you would like to see all the business categories on one page, on the top menu go to ‘Categories’ and select ‘Business Categories.’

More Information

Website and more

If you have a website, add it here. (You will need to use the https:// prefix).

If you have a business phone and / or business hours can you can add them here. Your phone number will be visible on your listing. 

Social Media

The Social Media Dashboard

Put in your social network address links. What is great about this is that you can use your listing on Mozart’s List as your social network dashboard / control center. So if you want to promote or post something that you would like to put across your different social media accounts, you use Mozart’s List as your command post. All of your networks accessible from one place!

Picture and Sound

The easy part

Next add video links. You can put audio links such as SoundCloud. (The number of video / audio links is dependent on your subscription level). Just add the URL of YouTube, Vimeo, SoundCloud, or similar. There is a video / audio tab on your listing that will display all of your videos. 

Now it is time to upload your images. If you want to add titles or captions, you can put them in here. After you see the image in the upload window, mouse over it. You will see an edit icon and a trash icon. Click on the edit icon and you will see two fields, one for title and one for caption. I generally like the caption field for photo credits. You can leave one or both blank. This information will show when you click on the images in the gallery at the bottom of your listing. Try it out! You can always go back and edit. If you need them, complete specs for images are in our Help / FAQ.

End Game

Some last details

If your business wants to list some special offers, you can do that here. 

One other way people can reach you on your listing is through a private messenger. This bypasses email and allows you to have direct contact with other members on Mozart’s List. In addition, you can allow other members to connect with you or follow you on Mozart’s List by allowing them to easily find your profile. (See the Quick Start page for more details about setting up your profile). 

If you want to preview your listing before publishing you have the option to do that. Otherwise, go for it! You can always come back and edit your listing as often as you wish. 

Other Kinds of Listings

Two other things

When you are making other listings, you can link them to your main business listing by typing the first few characters of the title of your main listing in the ‘Link to Business’ field. After a couple of seconds you will see a drop down list that should include your business listing title. Click on that and it will nest into the field. This will make it so that both of your listings will appear on each others listings. In addition, if you have professional or premium subscription you will be able to link other business listings together.

In this example we are seeing the job listing form which has the option of adding a pdf file to your listing. This is in case you want to have a separate pdf for potential applicants. Resume listings have a similar option but allow for several different kinds of documents for anyone wanting to provide a downloadable resume.

Event listings have time and date fields and an additional link for purchasing tickets.

Importing Information

For Business and Events

If you happen to have professional business or event pages on Facebook, you might want to try doing a quick import of information from those pages. These are not alway reliable and need much editing. However if you want to try and see what your information will look like, you just need to put the URL of the Facebook page into the file and click the ‘Import from Social’ button. At the very least, you might end up improving or updating your information on Facebook. Especially check the images that get imported. Sometimes there will be duplicates or less relevant photos.
