You profile must have a profile picture and cover photo to be visible. This is a networking community and the first step in marketing and advertising is being visible. It is impossible to be introduced when you have no name. Please update your profile account as soon as possible.
We encourage every member to rate the service and experience of others by using the 5 Star Review system ranging from one to five. Every business should strive for 5 Stars and be mindful of the customer service and importance of quality service.
The social activity available on this platform is very much like Facebook. You will have a profile picture, cover photo, ability to post on your wall (here called your activity page), access to friends to follow and the ability to send private messaging. You can strategically use your wall to post things about your business or drop questions of things you may need assistance with. Members will respond to your posts or opt to send you private messaging to offer support and/or information. Every business has a category, it is helpful for you to associate yourself with others with the same craft to find strength and support in similar areas.
There is no set number. We encourage you to build your network with popularity and 5 Star ratings.
When logged in you will find a bell in the bottom left hand corner of your screen. Within the bell a number will identify how many notifications you may have waiting. You will also receive email notifications when someone is following you, have messaged you, have posted on your activity page or responded to your post. These options are controlled in the “My Account” tab on your profile page. Look for the gear icon located next to your name.
