Top 10 Reasons a Membership is Much Better
Than a Free or Claimable Listing

A Free or Claimable listing is where many of the listings on the Windsor Local platform start. Members can join using the 'Free Plan', and Claimable Listings are the result of data entry or submissions from the 'Suggest a Business' link. They are free, but only show the company name, contact name, phone number, address and map. There are no further changes allowed until you claim the listing and move it up to one of the paid Membership plans, starting as low as $10/month.

Here we highlight the Top 10 Reasons a Membership is Much Better Than a Free or Claimable Listing:
