A more in-depth look

There are three elements to your Entsweb membership. Your Account, your Profile and your Listings.

When you join the EntsWeb community you first need to register and set-up your account. Once your account is up and running, you can decide on what information you want to share with the public on your Profile Page. Finally you choose the categories you would like your Listings to appear under.

Your Profile Page is the heart of your presence on EntsWeb. It presents to visitors, a very clear and complete picture of what you offer and can be thought of as your mini-website. Your Profile can contain up to 100 photos in 10 photo albums, 10 videos, 10 MP3 audio tracks, reviews and recommendations, a key-facts table, a Google safe outbound link to your website, informative 'About' text, buttons linking to your social media accounts, social media share links, a location map, full contact info, an enquiry form, your logo and a preamble. You have complete control of what is displayed.

After setting up your Profile page you can decide which categories you would like to be listed under. The Listing is a block of framed text that appears in lists found under various categories such as 'Covers Bands' or 'Marquee Hire'. Your Listing also appears in the search results. Without a Listing your Profile Page cannot be navigated to by visitors. There is a choice of Listing formats from Bronze up to Gold each giving you progressively better positioning and bigger display area. The Gold and Silver Listings also feature an image or photo. With each Profile comes a complimentary Bronze Listing.

These are the three blocks of information and how to set them up:

  1. Your Account (Private)
  2. Your Profile (Public)
  3. Your Listings (Public)

Your Account

Your Account carries the information needed to allow us to work together. Your Account details are not shared with anyone else or published. The information you enter here is just for our accounting purposes. Please note, on new accounts, to save repetitive typing, the contact info you enter here is copied to your Profile Page as in most cases it is the same. When you set up your public Profile Page you can decide whether to display, change or delete this info. This can be done without affecting your account details.  

To edit Your Account make sure you are logged into the members area:

  1. Click on 'Your Account'
  2. Fill out the form and click 'Save All Changes'

From the 'Your Account' section you can also change your password or request additional services such as  a free Jobs & Auditions' account.

***Now set up your Profile Page which acts as your on-line multimedia brochure***

Your Profile

The info you add to your Profile is used to build an interactive multimedia brochure for business or act. 

It 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 it as your interactive 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:

First login and click on 'Profile' in the left column.

The profile has six separate sections which can be reached by clicking in the corresponding tabs at the top of the page. Below I'll briefly run through the type of information you need to add to each section:

  1. Details
  2. Key Facts
  3. Photos
  4. Videos
  5. Audio
  6. Reviews

  • Details
      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.
      NB. To save you time, a lot of this is prefilled 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 checkbox to select or deselect visibility. If the checkbox is orange with a white tick the data next to it will be shown on your page.
      1. Show Enquiry Form: Use this option to add an enquiry form to your page. It's a good thing to have especially if you choose not to hide your email address.
      2. Location Map: If you click the ADD MAP button a map is added to your page. If you don't want a map of your location to be displayed, make sure there are no numbers in the Latitude and Longitude field.
      Click on the ADD SOCIAL NETWORK button to start adding your social network accounts. Use the drop-down to select the network and add just your Username or ID not the full URL. Click the add button again to add more networks.
