FAQ’s | Using the Directory

I would like to leave a review / rating for a business

Certainly. Everyone will be able to express their opinion on a business easily and immediately. You will need to have an account and log in. Then just search for the business you want to vote on the directory and, at the bottom of its business page, you can leave your review.

Businesses with the best ratings will be published on our homepage!

Do I have to register to look for a business?

No. Anyone can immediately start a search without registration or log-in.

Can I report a useful business to the Community?

Sure, indeed you are invited to do so! GreeksConnect can also grow thanks to your help.

Check if the business you want to report is not already in the directory and report it via email if it is not there.

I didn’t find what I was looking for

Try to redo the search using the “Search by Industry” section by selecting one of the recommended categories from the drop-down menu or search for “Location” to extend the search all over London.

Can I write to you to have the contacts of a professional / business that is not in the directory?

GreeksConnect does not offer a search service for people / business that are not in our database. Please, if you don’t find what you are looking for, contact us. Thanks for collaboration.

I would like to report a fraudulent business or one that no longer exists

All business pages must be accepted by us before being published. Unfortunately, we cannot have total control over the fact, for example, that a business ceases to exist. Obviously we will do our best to make sure that it is not fraudulent but we cannot take responsibility.

Please if you have any doubts about a business contact us immediately.

FAQ: For businesses

Who can join GreeksConnect?

All Greeks & Greek Cypriots who have a business and / or are freelancers in London or the UK can join GreeksConnect. This applies for example if you are a lawyer, teacher, personal trainer, interior designer, etc. You have a restaurant, a doctor’s office, a company, a shop, a club, etc.

Being a freelancer or having a business means having a position that allows you to offer services to our community, reliably, continuously and always open to new customers.

This means that if you are looking for a single job and, once found, you will no longer be able to offer the services published on your business page, it would make no sense to be in the directory and we will therefore not be able to accept your registration request.

You are not Greek/Greek Cypriot but you are Greek  speaking and do you have an greek-speaking business? Read more FAQs below to learn more about this topic.

I am looking for a job in London but I do not have a business and I am not a freelancer

A successful business directory is based on the availability and reliability of the entered businesses. This means that if once you find a job you will not be able to offer the services published on your business page, it would no longer make sense to be in the directory.

This is why we only accept freelancers or businesses that can offer services to our community, reliably, continuously and always open to new customers.

I don’t have a physical address for my business

For example, if you are a freelancer in London but do not have a physical place where you work (office) and offer services all over London, fill out your business page by entering “Online Services” or “Remote” in the address section of your business page.

Follow the instructions to fill in the business page that you find in the descriptions of the individual listings.

My business is in Greece or Abroad

If your business is not in the UK but you already actively distribute products and / or services in the UK (eg: e-commerce, franchises, etc.) you can be entered.

If you do not distribute in the UK yet, you will not be able to enter the directory. Upon acceptance of your business page you will be contacted if there are any doubts.

We offer advertising services that you can use by visiting our “Advertise with Us” Page.

I am a travel agency, tourism promoter for tourism in Greece/Cyprus, can I register?

Yes and you can also advertise on our banner, present in all the pages of our portal.

I don’t have a business in London yet, but I’m planning it

A successful business directory is obviously based on the availability and reliability of the inserted businesses. If you are just planning to work in London but you still don’t have the possibility to offer your services if you ask them, we will not be able to accept your registration request.

My business is in the UK but outside London

Most Greeks in the UK are in London. We are over 100K!. Our directory is focused on the English capital but is extended to the whole of the United Kingdom.

Follow the instructions to fill in the business page that you find in the descriptions of the individual listings. You can enter the address and post code.

I have an e-commerce but I do not live in the UK

If you don’t work in the UK but have an e-commerce and distribute Greek products in the UK, you can be entered.

If you do not distribute in the UK, you cannot be entered. Upon acceptance of your business page you will be contacted if there are any doubts.

I have a seasonal / temporary business in London

A successful business directory is based on the availability and reliability of the entered businesses. If you have a temporary or seasonal business in London, you can register but it will be important to notify us when you will not be able to offer your services at least 30 days in advance.

I am not Greek/Cypriot but I am Greek-speaking, I have an Greek-speaking business and I speak Greek

If you are not Greek but you speak Greek perfectly or you have lived in Greece before landing in the UK or you have Greek origins and you feel like you or your partner is Greek: in short, if you feel like an Greek adoptive but above all if your business is Greek-speaking, you can join the Community.

Do I need an Greek/Cypriot business to enter the directory?

The business does not necessarily have to be Greek but it would be better to be Greek-speaking, which means that at least part of the team and / or the owner, the creator, the founder, etc. it must be. Obviously it is better for the business to have a Greek customer service.

Please send us an email mentioning your story along with the business page publication request in case we have any doubts. Ex: The name of your business is foreign.
