Membership Benefits

PreferBay Business Membership

PreferBay is cultivated with a focus on helping locally owned small businesses connect with loyal customers.

Unlike other directory, review or deal sites, there are no distractions and no walls between the customer and the business.

PreferBay members are invited to add a profile to our Bay Area business directory, plus an exclusive deal for local shoppers.

Both are designed 100% with the member business in mind, specifically generating a click, call or contact.

PreferBay Profile

Each PreferBay profile features a unique write up about the business, prepared by our team, plus photos, video, contact info, website link, real reviews, and a contact form that let’s customers email directly from the profile.

Exclusive Deal

The Exclusive Deal is designed to provide extra value to encourage customers to reach out. The business controls the terms and conditions, and honors and tracks the deal from their end with the customer.
