PanamaOffers gives your potential customers the ability to search for service professionals like you by category, specialties, location, reviews, and keywords relevant to your business. These keywords tied to your profile — so the more information you provide, the easier it is for customers to find you.

PanamaOffers consumers have access to your business information so they can call or e-mail you at the very moment they are actively searching for your services.

PanamaOffers works with data providers who collect publicly-available business information such as name, location, and phone number. To ensure this information is correct, we encourage companies to come online and add more details about their services. This extra information gives consumers an edge in picking the right company to get the job done. Is your business listed on PanamaOffers.com? Click here to register your business.

It only take a few steps to join PanamaOffers as a Business Member. Here is a step-by-step guide to adding your business listing.

To get started, click on Add Listing from any page on the site.

You’ll want to scroll down the Business Membership Page to familiarize yourself with the many ways we connect our members with our growing community of sustainable consumers and with one another.

Make sure you’ve reviewed our Eligibility Requirements and our Sustainability Pledge. And don’t worry – we don’t expect your business to be 100% sustainable – part of our mission is to help you set goals and create initiatives to reach them.

Choose the membership plans that best suits your business. Clicking Continue brings you to the Submit Listing page. (Once you’ve created your listing, you’ll be prompted to Pay and Publish it.

Now you’re ready to create your listing on PanamaOffers!

  1. Gather the assets you need to complete your profile: a logo, at least five great photos, and a description of your products or services.
  2. Fill out your basic profile – your business name, tagline, address, phone, and website. The template is straightforward to use, and there are lots you can add to make your listing stand out.  Type your town or city into the required field – making sure to use this format: comma, space CT – and also type your address into Google Maps and let it auto-populate. Don’t overwrite what comes up in Google. If the google address looks wrong, you can go to manual coordinates and use drop pin and will allow site visitors to find you on the map feature.  If you don’t want to share your street address, you can type the name of your town or even the state name.

You can use the default business hours, click to remove them and leave this blank or add your hours.

We want you to get found in searches, so it’s essential that you select one or more business categories, and be sure also to check off any distinctive features associated with that category. The elements will populate as you choose the type. Contact us if you feel we should add a group.

Want to generate leads from your listing?  Add your email address to enable users to contact yours from the form on your Listing.

Price range is an optional field.  It’s great for restaurants, stores or individual service providers.

You can now save your basic profile and come back to add and edit photos, videos, certifications, awards, and more details anytime.

  1. Save, Preview, Pay & Publish your listing.  Next, you’ll need to agree to our Terms of Use. We encourage you to look over this document as well as our Privacy Policy and other legal documents that detail our protections, protocols, and rules of conduct.

Got a sustainability story to tell? Share it with the PanamaOffers community in your detailed description.  When filling out the specified description field, be sure to either type your text or copy paste it from an unformatted source.  Material pasted directly from a webpage or formatted document will not format correctly in the form.

Add social media URLs, and keywords to help you get found in searches.

Now let your friends and fans know you’re part of our community. Share your listing on social media, send out the press release and post your badge on your website.

You can add a URL for your Youtube or Vimeo video that will feature at the top of your listing.

Our site is full of beautiful images, and your listing displays photos in several ways.

Upload multiple photos – jpegs please – by dragging and dropping them into the images field.  We recommend max five photos here so that they will fill the gallery display on the header of your listing.

Use the Browse button below the images field to add a featured photo. Choose your favorite of the pictures you uploaded to your gallery.  This photo will appear wherever your listing displays on the site as a card – on the home page, in category pages, search results, and ads, this is the place where you can upload a featured promotion for an upcoming event or special offer.  We advise against using your logo here – it will be covered by text and will display better in the header gallery area.

You will want to visit your dashboard frequently to update your listing, check user engagement analytics, read and respond to reviews, and create ad campaigns.

We can’t wait to welcome you to the PanamaOffers community!

We welcome our business members to advertise by promoting their Listings on our website. Our ad services are accessible to business members via the account dashboard.

Search Results

PanamaOffers’s search results are designed to rank listings based on their relevance to the search request. However, there are a few things that will help you place higher in the results:

  • For highest placement, consider use the Business profile. If you already do than we give you the offer to place your business form of Ads in Front of the others Listings.
  • Make sure that you have indicated your business specialties for the category in which you listed.
  • Ask your customers to rate and review your business.

PanamaOffers’s search results are designed to rank listings based on their relevance to the search request. This relevance based on several factors, including how closely the search request matches PanamaOffers’s categories and other keywords (or the business name), the distance from the searcher’s location, and how much information the business gives PanamaOffers when it registers. The more information you give PanamaOffers when you register your business, the more likely the business is to appear near the top of a related search request.

Keywords are directly related to specialties.

They are the average of the total overall star rating of your reviews rounded to the nearest half star.

We are proud to have created a platform that prioritizes locally owned businesses. If your business provides goods or services that you believe would appeal to our users, please Contact Us even if you are not eligible to join. We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your interest.

National brands, multi-national companies are welcome to explore becoming a Corporate Sponsor. Click here to learn more and start a dialog.

  • Slogans, service area or payment-type information is not allowed.

PanamaOffers maps are powered by google map. If your map is incorrect, you first may want to check your business address for accuracy. While entering your business address, should it be unrecognizable, PanamaOffers will suggest variations of the address based on available information in our database.

We are always happy to update our list of categories for businesses that do not see the perfect fit. We want your business to get found easily! Please contact us at [email protected] to let us know the nature of your business and what category you would like to see it under.

Reviews & Favorites

Yes. PanamaOffers encourages visitors to give accurate and honest reviews of local service professionals. To protect the credibility of these reviews, we allow consumers to review a business location only once. That’s why we ask visitors to register first.

We do not remove many reviews, nor do we edit them. PanamaOffers gives consumers the opportunity to voice their opinions about local businesses they have used, so you will find both positive and negative reviews throughout the site. We’re often asked — essentially — to determine whether the merchant or customer is right. We can’t possibly determine that.

Reviews must abide by our Visitor Agreement. Contact Us to let us know if you think a review of your business is in clear violation. Please be sure to tell us your business name, phone number, city, state and the username on the review you want us to check.

We encourage you to do the following:

Have your loyal customers become members of PanamaOffers and share their experience. Not everybody will have a great experience every time they use a service. However, we believe a high number of good reviews offset the impact any negative reviews may have. Also, know that the first page of your PanamaOffers profile will display only the ten most recent reviews. Therefore, ten positive reviews will push negative reviews off the first page.
Please allow 48 hours for new comments or reviews to publish to PanamaOffers.com.

PanamaOffers encourages PanamaOffers consumers to give honest feedback. PanamaOffers can not weigh competing claims, but we do offer all merchants the opportunity to respond to their reviews. Reviews must abide by our Content Guidelines and our Visitor Agreement.

There are a few possible reasons:

  • Consumers must confirm their user registrations by e-mail before their reviews are published. If your customer did not confirm their registration, their reviews will not be published.
  • It may take 48 hours for new or edited reviews to publish.
  • Consumers may edit a review at any time.
  • Each business location contains its reviews. When a place deleted, so are any associated reviews.
  • If you have multiple locations and one of them does not have any reviews, it may be possible that the place you found on PanamaOffers.com is that location without reviews.
  • Finally, PanamaOffers reserves the right to refuse or remove any review that does not comply with our Content Guidelines or our Visitor Agreement.

Each business location contains its own records. Therefore, a consumer must rate and review each location individually.

Service standards may vary from one location to another. This feature allows consumers to see an accurate rating for each individual location. Further, should a consumer post a poor rating for one location, the other locations are not affected.

Click the save label on any business profile to save it to your list of Favorites. Look for the heart icon in your dashboard menu, then click on it to reveal your Favorites.
