Retreat Advertising FAQs
My retreat happens several times a year. Can I include different dates under the same listing?Yes! If the program is the same, you are welcome to include as many dates as you’d like and your listing will be valid for a year. You can include specific dates under the dates section, or simple write “Year round”.
Is RetreatPlace for Yoga retreats only?No, RetreatPlace is designed to promote any type of mind & body wellness retreat/holiday. This includes art, cooking, detox, fitness, hiking, pilates, meditation, spiritual, etc.

How long will my retreat be on the site?Your listing is valid for a year or until the date of your retreat.
If you list in March 2017 and your retreat is April 2017, your listing will be valid until April 2017.
If you list in March 2017 and your retreat is offered year round, your listing will be valid until March 2018. You will then be prompted to renew.
How do I edit my listing?We are currently working on a system that will allow you to create an account and to edit your retreat page(s) yourself. In the meantime, we will make those edits for you. Simply send us an email at email@example.com and let us know which sections need to be edited.
How do I make sure that my retreat page is seen?There are several ways to do that. You can promote your retreat page in your social media pages such as Facebook. You can also explore with our advertising tools, such as Facebook push promotions and our newsletter. Visit this PAGE for more information.
What is a Facebook push promotion?A regular post on Retreat Place Facebook page is seen by about 300 people. However with a Facebook Push Promotion, Facebook actively puts a post we create about your retreat in front of our fans and their friends with a reach of 5,000 to 10,000 people.
The post is typically a photo album of the pictures you provide in your listing (as most people are more inspired by pictures than words on a first introduction). We add the title of the program, a short fun description and a web link to your retreat page.
The campaign lasts 4 days. You can order as many Facebook push promotions as you’d like and let us know when you’d like to run them. We can send you a report of the number of views the post gets.
