Note: When you start to advertise on the site, some of the information is automatically created for you so that you do not have to keep typing the same text e.g. your address. This information is derived from your profile, and to save time you should complete your profile as soon as possible. To do so, click on 'Account Information' and the 'Edit' button.
Tip: Put your address into Google Maps (www.google.co.uk/maps) to find your property, and make a note of the way it holds your address. This may differ slightly from the way you normally see your address, but if you enter this in your registration form, it ensures accurate pinpointing of your address/studio/gallery on your page!
