Fill out the provided form using your name, email address, and listing title (the name of
your business). We don’t publish the name and email address you provide here; it’s
only for us to communicate with you about your account. Also create a username.
Answer these questions that clarify our definition of locally owned for the purposes of
our business directory. We still verify all businesses to be sure their business license is
held locally before they are published on our directory.
Complete this section with the location and contact information for your business that
will be visible on your listing.
*This will be public.
Complete the Mailing Information section with the mailing information for your
business that will be not visible on your listing, and will only be used by Local First Utah.
Complete the Business Description section, which will be publicly displayed on your
business listing. Basic listings are limited to 500 characters (about 100 words) and may
not include a URL in the description. Descriptions may be edited by Local First Utah to
fit these parameters.
Enter the security code to prove you aren’t a robot, and click “Submit.”

Ta da! Here it is! Once we officially approve your listing (we just verify that you meet
our definition of local), it will be publicly available in our directory and you’ll receive an
email directing you to create a password.
If you selected a Basic Listing as your plan, you’ll see this page as well. Businesses with
Basic Listings are not able to upload any images; those with Enhanced Listings are able
to upload one image/logo; and those in the Local First Leaders Circle are able to upload
up to three images/logos and three videos.
