Event & Business Submission Request Guidelines

Read Through Our Submission Guidelines Before Submitting

Are you interested in submitting your event or business request to get them added to SFTourismTips? I'm always looking for great new ideas for my visitors and love helping businesses all around the SF Bay Area get the word out.

Submission requests used to be free here at SFTourismTips.com. However, due to the volume of requests I'm receiving and the amount of time I'm spending on reviewing them, I'm now charging $25 to submit all event and business requests. This is non-refundable and is the only way to now submit your requests to SFTourismTips.com.

I've also set up a very specific set of guidelines, so it's easier for you to know what types of requests I usually post on my site. This will save both of us time and give me the details I need to quickly get your request posted.

Please allow up to 10 days for events to be added to the site. You will find two types of submission requests forms below. One is for events and the other is for businesses. Please skip ahead to the section that works best for you as each has a specific list of guidelines.

Event Submission Guidelines

Please read these carefully before submitting your request. I will not accept any requests that do not follow my guidelines.

Note: I'm currently only accepting events in San Francisco, the SF Bay Area, Napa, Sonoma, and Monterey. If you have event requests outside of these areas, please check back later to see if I have new calendars where I can add them.

  • Full event name

  • Date(s), times(s) and location of the event (address and/or park/streets/etc.)

  • For events outside the city of San Francisco, please include name of city and venue location as well as details on how to get here by public transit.

  • Any other details about the event you would like me to include that will help my visitors understand what the event is all about. You must include an ORIGINAL write-up with at least 250 words. If your write up is copied from your site, part of a press release or the same content as you submitted to other sites, it will be immediately declined.

  • Please make sure your content has correct spelling and grammar. It must sound professional as my visitors need to be able to clearly understand your event.

  • Please have an image I can use on my site that is at least 350 x 200. I'll reach out to you after submission for an image to accompany your submission.

  • A link to the page you are requesting to add your event. There is no guarantee that you will be added to the page requested, but I want to get an idea on where you see your event fitting into my site.

  • Contact person and information for the event for questions. This will not be posted on the site along with the event, but used for communication of any details of the event before it is posted on the site and to inform you when the event is live.

Note: Only requests for events two or more weeks out will be considered. I manually review all requests and only add San Francisco events that will benefit my visitors to my calendars.

Here are some examples of the types of events I will/will not include on my site.

  • Small events with less than 1,000 people are not usually accepted

  • No religious or political events, although non-religious festivals hosted by churches or other non-profits are fine such as food festivals, children's festivals, health & wellness events, etc.

  • No one-night events at small venues

If your event is declined, you will receive notification from me. As I stated above, the $25 is not refundable as even declined posts take me time to review and manage.

Business Submission Guidelines

Do you have a San Francisco or Bay Area business you would like to get added to SFTourismTips.com? If so, then follow the guidelines below for submission.

Note: I'm currently only accepting new requests for San Francisco only. I'm working on expanding my site and will soon have more space to add requests in for the SF Bay Area, Napa, Sonoma, Monterey and beyond. Please hold onto those requests for now and check back here often. I'll be updating this page with information on the types of requests I'm currently accepting.

  • Full business name

  • Business address

  • Details about what your business offers. Your description must include 250 words of ORIGINAL copy. Any copy pulled directly from your website, from other submissions, or a press release will immediately be declined.

  • Please make sure your content has correct spelling and grammar. It must sound professional as my visitors need to be able to clearly understand what your business may offer them.

  • Please have an image I can use on my site that is at least 350 x 200. I'll reach out to you after submission for an image to accompany your submission.

  • A link to the page you are requesting to add your submission. There is no guarantee that you will be added to this page, but I want to see where you think your listing would work best on SFTourismTips.com.

  • Contact person and information for the event for questions. This will not be posted on the site along with the event, but used for communication of any details of the event before it is posted on the site and to inform you when the event is live.

Note: I manually review all requests and only add business listings that will benefit my visitors to my pages. If your request is denied, I will follow up with you on details on why I don't think it will fit in with my visitors.

The non-refundable submission fee is $25 per business.
