Advertisers FAQ

Welcome to our FAQ section.

We’ve collated the following Frequently Asked Questions from our business listings and enquiries.

 If you still have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us via the form at the bottom of the page and we’ll get back to you ASAP!

There are 2 listing options for business.

  1. Featured Listing $250/yr
  2. Standard Listing $199/yr

Both listing options have to same inclusions, however our featured list sits above the standard list in each category. So this means if you take a featured listing, your position will be secured for as long as you list with us. A standard listing will move down as new featured listings join our directory.

All our business listings go in date order, so the sooner you list your business the better position you’ll have. 


Head back to the ‘Advertise With Us‘ page to join our directory. 

You can list events with us for FREE if you have your business listed in our Business Directory, or you can choose a Featured Event for $100 if you don’t have a business listed in our Business Directory. You can list an evet up to 8 weeks before the event date.


Listing a job on Lake Mac Family Life is FREE. 


Head back to the ‘Advertise With Us‘ page and click the blue button to list your job.

Yes. You can create an event or a job listing without a business listing, however, if you have a business listing it can be linked to your business and it will also appear on your business page. 

Linking an event or a job to your business means visitors can easily find it. This link is selected during the event or job listing process and will appear in your Listing Dashboard.

Here’s all the business categories on our website so you know exactly what you’re looking for during the listing process.

We suggest looking at this list prior to submitting your listing, so you can plan the most effective position for your business.

Please be mindful that your category needs to be specific to your business. If your business is kids yoga, then this is the only category you can be in. However, if your business crosses categories, such as a photographer for example, your business can be listed in photography and weddings. You can select up to 3 categories in this instance.
Any placement in the wrong categories will not be approved so our directory stays valuable and not confusing to the visitor.

To make your listing look amazing you need to resize your images before you add them.
