That's easy.  Just use the ADD business link in our top menu, fill out all the information that's applicable, add your logo, cover photo (optional) and other details and you'll be sent for approval.  Approval happens within just a few hours or sooner. (6am - 10pm EST).

YES.  Small business growth and stability is important.  Our small businesses in our communities have lots of struggles.  This small business directory site is just a small cog in the entire scheme of things to help them out.  This site was not built to generate money from it or to charge it's users or business listers.  Please enjoy something that doesn't have a price tag!

Our goal was to help promote the smaller, local businesses - those needing help the most during these crazy times.   Could any business get listed, sure, but right now - we just want to hopefully focus on small business.

Your sign up contact information will be kept private.  We have no intentions to sell, trade, barter, etc. your sign up contact information for any reason.  To do that creates distrust.  That's not what we are about or why we are doing this.  The information you provide in your listing is typically already public - so anyone will be able to see, use, copy, etc. your public listed information.

No.  We are not an e-commerce site.  You will have the ability to list offers, events in the future, but any "selling" of items or services should be handled on your own business websites, social pages.  You are more than welcome to link over to your websites and social pages to sell your products and services.

I'm a Fort Wayne native.  I'm not here to get the lime light on anything.  I'm more interested in helping small businesses right now more than ever.  This directory can be another tool to do that.  I do work in a marketing capacity and have for some time and can certainly help businesses that want to further their position in the market through paid services, but this directory is meant to simply help their visibility in the community and maybe help their search positioning down the road as another link option for them.

This directory is ever evolving and growing.  If you are trying to list your business and can't find a category you fit into, please pick something close, finish your listing, then e-mail us at info@whatsopenindiana.com.  We have to approve your business first once you submit, so we can add the category you need, adjust your listing and then make it live for you.

At this time we are limiting this to Indiana businesses.  We appreciate your understanding and want to certainly help everyone, but we only have so much human bandwidth to handle things.  Hopefully in the future we can expand.

Well, getting listed anywhere on the website can help any level of visibility efforts.  If your small business is really looking for a boost in sales, please consider reaching out to those companies that can build you a solid marketing plan that includes a variety of avenues.  Never just rely on social media only or free avenues.  If you are looking for marketing ideas, feel free to send us an email and we can make some suggestions on who to contact to get started.
