The more you tell about your special and your business, the more you stand out. This is how it works:

Put your business on the map

Think of a special that represents you and your business best. Something that attracts more customers: It could be your signature dish, a happy hour that last all night long, or simply an attractive price reduction on this specific day. Just upload it to the platform and be visible on the map.

Be a highlight on the platform

The more you tell us about your business and your special, the more you’ll appear on the platform. So don’t stop at just the name of your special but get more specific about the where – and whatabouts of your business. The more information you add about your special and your business, the more highlighted you will be on the platform, and the more attention you will receive from customers.

On top get advertised in social media

You have more to offer? So have we. Enhance your special and tell us more about its uniqueness or even improve it with one or more appealing pictures. The better it looks the higher is the possibility that your special will be advertised on social media as well.

While we talked a lot about our new brand name, our taste and our customer service, it was really hard to find a time to focus on our advertising. Then we heard about METRO Own Business Day and thought we would like to be a part of it.

The Vis-a-Vis restaurant has been operating continuously for 12 years and is located in a tenement house built in 1910-1912. When creating the restaurant, we strived to satisfy even the most demanding guests. Own Business Day has allowed us to expand our group of loyal customers, of which we are extremely happy.
