If you've come across unclaimed listings on the eDirectory site, and you're the rightful owner, claiming your listing is a straightforward process. This guide will walk you through the steps to efficiently claim and manage your listing as a sponsor. So, let's get started!

Introduction: Understanding Listing Claims

In the expansive world of eDirectory, it's not uncommon to stumble upon unclaimed listings. These listings, although present on the site, await the attention of their rightful owners. If you've identified a listing that belongs to you, claiming it ensures that you have full control over the information presented and the ability to make real-time updates.

Step 1: Access Your Listing Page

The first step in the claiming process is to locate and access your listing page on the eDirectory site. Navigate to the specific listing you wish to claim.

Step 2: Click "Is this your listing? Claim it here"

Once on your listing page, keep an eye out for the option that reads, "Is this your listing? Claim it here." Click on this option to initiate the claiming process.

Step 3: Register to the Site

To proceed with the claim, you'll need to register on the eDirectory site. Provide your First name, Last name, E-mail, and create a secure Password. Complete the registration by confirming the reCAPTCHA.

Step 4: Choose Subscription Plan and Listing Template

After registration, you'll be prompted to select a subscription plan that suits your needs. Choose the plan that aligns with your preferences and pick a listing template. Click "Next" to proceed.

Step 5: Update Listing Information

Upon selecting your plan and template, you'll be redirected to the listing form. Here, you have the opportunity to update and customize all relevant listing information. This includes categories, description, keywords, email, phone, address, and more.

Note: When claiming a listing, you'll gain access to the listing form for updating certain information. However, please be aware that certain fields, such as images and videos, may not be editable during this initial claiming process. These features will become accessible immediately after the site manager approves your listing claim, as illustrated in the message above.

Step 6: Submit 

Once you've meticulously updated your listing, scroll down and click "Next." 

Step7: Pay

This action will take you to the payment page, where you'll need to provide billing details. Choose your preferred payment method and proceed to pay for the listing by clicking "Next."

Step 8: Confirmation and Pending Status

Upon successful payment, you'll see the claimed listing in your dashboard. If the status shows as "Pending," it means the site manager must approve the listing before it goes live. Once approved, your listing will be visible to the public on the site.
