At long last we have got the new site live... it's taken quite a while in the design and build stage! The number of visitors to the site has increased over the last year and we regularly get over 5000 page views a month and it is growing. The directory has over 1100 listings and is well used with new members registering nearly every day, and Google likes us!
So we thought it was time to create a site that offers something more to our members and visitors and which can develop as the network grows. It is still in 'beta' test so if you come across anything that is not working or you think is confusing, or could be made clearer, or done better, please do let us know.
The site has many new features such as a paid for level of membership called "Premier Member", for which you get an enhanced listing in the directory, your own full profile page, access to the members blog to promote your business and services, the ability to offer discounted services to other Premier Members (and take advantage of their offers) and profiling through the promotion box on every page. As the site grows the benefits of membership will increase and more offers will be made available. We are in discussions with several organisations to offer discounts to our members! Watch this space.
Take a good look round and let us know what you think.
