The internet is vast and full of mistakes or missing key details. Shoppers struggle to find all the antique and secondhand dealers they want to visit. They never just visit one shop at a time, it's always a trip around a few or more. They deserve to include your place in their treasure hunt, and they're here looking for it.

Here's how listings and memberships work on Treasure Hunting

Step One

Select your Listing Type:

Leave slow days in a lonely shop or auction behind. Being listed on Treasure Hunting makes it so easy for shoppers to discover your store. You find the treasures, we'll find the buyers.

It really is as easy as 1. 2. 3. but if you have any questions please call me: Kirsten 0210766083

Or read-on to find out more about Treasure Hunting memberships.

Step Two

Select Membership

Only members can claim or create a listing for an antique or secondhand shop or auction house. Being a member gets you so much more than a traditional phone book listing, and look at the price compared to a yellow pages advert!

Step Three

Enter Information

about your shop or auction

The online form will walk you through ALL the detail you need to add about your shop or auction including uploading photos and logos. Complete as much as you can to begin with, you can always come back later to edit your listing to add more or update anything. If you have any problems with this step, call Kirsten on 021066083
Or You may like to opt to have this step managed for you.

Step Five

enjoy more customers

Reach More Customers

We know how and where to find new customers that match your store. Compare our prices to advertising in the phone book or newspaper. These forums have dwindling reach and are very limited in how much detail they can include.

Happy Customers

Get happy customers before they walk in the door by managing their expectations. People can find everything they need to know about your place on your listing. Happy customers return again, often with friends

Information Centre

Treasure Hunters hardly ever visit just one shop, they want multiple locations to peruse. This directory is the hub for everything they want to know about all the places they want to treasure hunt. Can they include your shop in their round trip?

Map Location

With a map, Treasure Hunters can easily plan how and when they will include a stop at your place on their trip. Stand out on the map with your logo instead of the default rocking horse by upgrading a FULL listing on the standard or stand-out membership.

Open Hours

It's impossible to memorise the unusual open hours of all the shops and auctions. Disappointed customers who found your closed sign when they made the effort to come, rarely return to try again. Don't disappoint them, let them know when you're open.

Travellers

A printed version of this directory is available at information centres and shops like yours for treasure hunters to discover your shop too. Don't rely on local knowledge, memories fade. Reach travellers enjoying a day of local curiosities.

Performance

Monitor the performance of your listing(s). How many people view your listing daily, weekly, monthly? Are they using their mobile devices on the go or desktops before heading out?

No Adverts

Other directory websites are funded by adverts that blink and glitz to distract viewers. It looks cheap and nasty and it's irritating. We're not going to do that to your customers.

Marketing

No matter what type of customer you have, we'll find them for you; students, bargain hunters, antique collectors, tourists, interior designers, generous donors, frugal budgeters...

 TREASURE HUNTERS

You find the treasures, we'll find the hunters to buy them
