Member Operating System

The Member Operating System was created to help Chambers of Commerce and others provide advanced technology to their members without the normal complexity associated with the Internet.

Members are able to easily login through the membership organization website in order to participate in the member business network.

The member business network was created to support public-to-members, chamber-to-members and member-to-member business development by accepting and trading leads electronically through the membership organization and the website.

The member operating system also includes a wide array of advertising tools along with the ability to broadcast member business events through the Member Calendar Network.

Member Advertising System

Participating members are provided with and extensive array of tools to build a COMPLETE online advertising system for promoting a business.

The tools are designed for local advertising through the membership organization, website, Buy Local Program© and via the Area Search Engine© that is powered by Google®.

Member are provided with high quality USA BASED support through the Free Members Support center.

Members are also provided with the ancillary benefits at no cost that they need for a full solution.

These benefits include a custom domain name, matching business email accounts, mobile phone website which is ".mobi" compliant, scrolling photo tour and much more as a thank you for being a loyal member.

Member Broadcasting System

A website on its own is really a brochure on the business and does not itself create a broadcasting solution for the business owner.

Chambers of Commerce and many other membership organizations rank very high on search engine results because they are trusted sources for information and used a great deal by the public.

Harnessing this traffic, routing it to specific members and tracking the flow so we can provide ongoing suggestions for better optimization, is the key to our success.

Static information on a website is only valuable for search indexing, but won't create much buzz.

Broadcasting business updates, viewing local search transactions to help determine the best way for members to optimize to capture more prospects is what this program is all about.
