HearPlanet has opened its platform to businesses and individuals with something to say about places.

With the HearNow™ platform, we now provide an easy way for you to reach a truly expansive audience. Each listing can contain action buttons for users to 'Call Now', 'Email', visit your 'Website', even download your app. You can even offer special promotions via coupons.

Partners can simply add locations and venues using this site, or use our API or XML ingestion schema for larger scale content integration.

To get started, just create an account by clicking the 'Join Us' link at the top of the page, or Click Here.

Once logged in, click "Add a New Place" from your account page. Your information will become available to over 600,000 registered iPhone and Android users (with additional users and distribution partners signing on all the time). Audio for each listing is preferred, and if you can't provide a recording our professional voice artists are happy to help (or just use our text-to-speech system).

For partners with significant content we'll create a unique channel within HearPlanet that you can administer, allowing instant content publishing and content moderation within your organization. A unique channel for your content lets us customize features and layout, and provide fine grained control over distribution.

We also provide additional services to our Content Partners, such as custom branded mobile applications, and widgets that bring the HearPlanet experience to your web pages. Just Contact Us if you are interested in any additional services.

We make it easy for developers and distribution partners to deliver engaging audio, and other location based content, to their audiences.

We encourage partners to mash-up and redistribute HearPlanet content in new and interesting ways using our HearNow™ platform. Much of our content can be accessed for free and we're excited to see the implementations our partners come up with.

We also welcome developers and publishers to host their content on the HearNow™ platform, allowing them to take advantage of our powerful delivery tools for their applications. We can also extend the reach of their content, offering new audiences, distribution channels, and even new revenue opportunities.

If you'd like to add our content to your site or application, or discuss other partnership opportunities, just contact us for more information.
