Free Advertising Opportunities in Cuenca

1. Cuenca Yapas & Friends Facebook Group

Cuenca Yapas and Friends Facebook Group (Deals and Expat Info)

YapaTree spends a lot of time administrating and moderating our Cuenca Facebook Group. Group posting rules allow:

  • Relevant Cuenca businesses to advertise every 30 days. A relevant business is one that has customers in Cuenca, it doesn’t mean you need to be physically stationed in Cuenca.
  • YapaTree Card Partners can advertise every 7 days.

We put a lot of effort into maintaining a positive experience in our Facebook Group. Please don’t just see it as a dumping ground for your promotions every month. Our core mantra is “give more than you take”. For business advertisers, this also means:

  • Answering questions from others
  • Contributing your own posts
  • Generally being a good citizen of the internet by being respectful of others and certainly no trolling.

Whilst we want to support your business, we do remove businesses that only see it as a place to promote their businesses without further contributions.

  1. Join Cuenca Yapas & Friends Facebook Group. Either as your business or personal profile.
