Step Out Buffalo Business Listings on

This free resource is a great place to start, but if you’re really looking to take things to the next level, read on for a few tips directly from our editors on what makes for a standout listing on the Step Out Buffalo website:

  • Having large, high-quality organic photos with no text help listings stand out to both our editors and our readers.
  • If you have a recurring event, be sure to switch up the photos you submit weekly/monthly to keep things fresh.
  • Write a solid, descriptive title for your listing by asking yourself what sort of title might entice you to click if you were a customer.
  • Update your business/restaurant listings regularly with seasonal hours, new photos, updated descriptions, etc. The most recently updated listings get bumped to the top, so more people will see them.
  • Make sure to fill out ALL of the fields – hours, days, website, social media links, ticket links, etc. As a general rule of thumb, the more information you can provide to both our editors and audience, the better your listing will perform.
  • Take a look at all of the other listings that appear on our website. How can you leverage what other people are doing, and how can you get creative to make your listing stand out from the crowd?
