Setting up an account

An account is needed for all EntsWeb members to allow us to do business with you and to help us keep track of your directory listings. This step collects the information we need to verify you are real and run a genuine enterprise. It is required for both free and paid listings. None of this information is shared or published. After your account is set up you can create your public profile page.

Here's how to setup your account. Make sure you are logged in:

  1. In the Members Area click 'Your Account' in the left column.
  2. A straightforward form will appear complete with help notes. Fill out the form giving your business details such as contact name, address, phone numbers, admin email, website URL, etc. 
  3. In addition to contact details this form allows you to request a Jobs & Auditions advertising account and/or a multiple profile account. These two checkbox items, found under 'Management Functions' at the foot of the form, would normally be left deselected unless you are a manager or run an agency or venue.
  4. Click the orange 'Save All Changes' button. If you have missed something you will be alerted and shown the area needing your attention. 

Once you have successfully saved the changes you can set up your public facing profile page as shown in the next section

Create a Profile Page

This is your core information page where you motivate visitors and convince them you have what they need. All your listings throughout the directory will point back to this page which you can think of this as your glossy brochure or a mini-website. It is well worth spending a little to give this multi-faceted page some professionally polished content. Here's how:

Login and click on 'Profile' in the left column. The profile set up page that appears has six tabs: Details, Key Facts, Photos, Videos, Audio and Reviews

  1. Details tab
    1. BASIC INFORMATION 
      1. Page Title: usually your trading, band or stage name
      2. Introduction Text: This should be a short attention grabbing description of up to 170 characters
      3. Location: This is where you operate from or where your head office is based. Later you can add all the areas you serve.
      4. Logo Image: Upload your logo a photo or other image. This will appear in the top section of your page 
      5. About Text: A more comprehensive description of the goods or services you offer. Explain the benefits a client gets and describe what makes you unique. For help with writing good promotional copy see here.  
    2. CONTACT INFORMATION 
      NB. To save you time, a lot of this is pre-filled from you account details. You can overwrite it with fresh details such as a different address or a public email. You can also choose which items to show or hide by clicking the check-box to select or deselect visibility. If the check-box is orange with a white tick the data next to it will be shown on your page.
