Tourism Kelowna's Extranet is a handy tool that gives you the ability to see how many visitors view your listing, update your account information and make changes to your listing. This blog post will go over how to update every element of your web listing.

*It's best to follow along with the blog post while making changes to your web listing.

A NAP listing on tourismkelowna.com consists of the following:

  1. One business logo
  2. 150-word description
  3. Up to 10 photos
  4. A list of your business's amenities
  5. Business address and phone number
  6. Links to Email, Website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Book Now button (all social media channels and book now is optional)

If you can check off all of the items above, you’re off to a great start. If you’re missing one or a couple of the above items, this post will help you add the missing items and make your listing stronger.

 Listings_website_tab

Click the pencil to edit your website listing.

*The media listing type is not displayed on the website and is there to give media an idea of what your business offers; these will be displayed on media itineraries. Media often refer to their itinerary during and after their visit, keeping the information up to date is key. If you also see an M&C (Meetings & Conferences) listing type, you will want to update this listing as well. As this listing description is sent to meeting planners who are interested in coming to Kelowna for meetings and conferences.
