This provides a SINGLE network that can host all of the businesses within the community.

List of Included Electronic Member Services
Included Setup Services
The first objective of the support team is to be sure that your business is properly connected to the local network. This is typically the Official Area Network for your community accessed by thousands of people looking specifically for local information. Most of the time they get to this network through traditional search engines, which is where you want to be found.
Traffic Catcher Pages (Create/Manage Website)
Many people ask our support center if they will be charged for this service. The answer is NO. Although this type of targeted advertising would normally have a monthly fee, it is included in your membership dues. This program is provided to your members as a thank you for being a part of your organization.
Scrolling Photo Tour
The membership directory is used by thousands and thousands of people. It is important they find what they are looking for, and then see an attractive presentation. For this we add images to create a scrolling photo tour.
Social and Local Networking
Your customers may want to take advantage of their existing social networks to refer your company or service. The TCS landing page has the modules to easily integrate with many different social services. Your prospects or customers can now share your business via services like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Chamber Social Network, and others.
Integrated Video Commercial
Easily upload your business commercial onto YouTube, then place the embedded code into the specified box. Your video will be automatically distributed through a link in the Member Directory and will also play within your landing page.
Your TCS landing page includes one area entirely dedicated to your specials. You can easily create online coupons with staging by date. You can also upload a graphic coupon to be delivered through the various promotional channels already set up in the program.
Submit a Daily Deal
The Daily Deals attribute is an integrated platform available to members where the organization has it activated. It allows the public to subscribe and the members to submit a daily deal. Since they must be great deals to keep the subscribers, the deals are monitored by staff. Once approved, it will be included in the next community blast.
Button Connected to Various Sites
Traffic Catcher System (TCS) also gives you the option to launch your landing page from a button on your website. When one of your prospects clicks on your landing page button, it loads your page quickly with important information for a new prospect to see. Visitors can easily send referrals to their friends, family, and colleagues, without ever leaving the landing page.
Network reporting is available to members in order for them to see how many times their information has been viewed or accessed. It also enables the member to see what people are searching for in the local community and finding (or not). If the list of "not found" search results match what the member offers, they may adjust their search keywords so that the next time that search will be matched with the member business.
The TCS system tracks all of your visits from the Member Directory that are generated from the Area Search Engine and traditional search engines like Google.
The Premium Membership Plan (optional) tracks not only the clicks, but actual views of your site and allows people to vote on which of the products or services you offer they like the most. You need this kind of data to make wise advertising decisions.
Things-To-Do Visitor Area
We provide an automated Things-To-Do visitor area that is added to many community websites. Because these visitor areas are for a pleasant experience, each member business always has an attractive image for their electronic cover page. We create a grid image that is (250x250) for photo driven directories.
Syndicated Calendar System
Syndicated Calendar System designed for communities that want to offer individual calendars to various organizations and members for use in their own websites which will upload to a master community-wide calendar. This is ideal for members that offer open houses or others that offer sales and training.
