Do you own a restaurant or other business?
We have a new way for you to reach your customers: the Fort Lauderdale on the Cheap Business Directory, plus the Fort Lauderdale on the Cheap Restaurant Directory. These directories offer businesses throughout Broward County an opportunity to reach more customers at an affordable price – starting with free for basic listings.
Even if you don’t own a business, these new features will have you find restaurants, businesses and events that you care about. This expanded directory is a major improvement from our previous Fort Lauderdale on the Cheap Deals program. If you’re looking for a place to order dinner, you will find quite a few restaurants already listed in our Broward Restaurant Directory, which is also searchable by city.
One of the best features of our new directories is that premium advertisers can offer deals and promotions any time, completely under their control. You can decide when a deal starts, when it ends and what the discount should be, and you have the power to turn promotions on and off at any time. Customers come directly to you, and they buy directly from you, meaning you don’t have to deal with any third parties.
Premium directory members also will be showcased in different high-traffic locations on our sites. We are already showing restaurant listings and the business directory on our home page. We have plans to showcase premium restaurants on our Food & Drink page, and we plan to showcase attractions and entertainment businesses on a new Things To Do page.
We are eager to feature you in our new premium Business Directory and Restaurant Listings platform. The platform allows you to reach our audience of 75,000 monthly readers with real-time engagement options and information about your business, including features such as online ordering, lead generation, when you’re open, and the services that you are currently offering (e.g., curbside pickup, delivery, outdoor seating, etc.).
We also have some new features for events, including events that are not free.

If you’re looking for even more exposure, Fort Lauderdale on the Cheap offers additional advertising options, from custom advertorial to banner ads to social media promotion.
We are also offering business directory options at Miami on the Cheap and Palm Beach on the Cheap. If your business has multiple physical locations, you will need a listing for each location. But if your business serves multiple counties, just include that information when you chose your geographic radius, and your listing will automatically appear on the additional sites.
New opportunities to share events
If you are promoting events, we have also expanded our calendar listings to allow you to add your own events, even if they aren’t free or cheap.
- Submit your free entertainment event here.
- Submit all other events here. (These events may also show up at Miami on the Cheap and Music in South Florida.)
We are excited about the opportunity this provides for you to engage more deeply with our audience and we are standing by to help you with any questions or assistance you may need. You can email us with any questions at email@example.com
