You'll be amazed at what you can build and sustain for your members. A dedicated space that is built around your industry's topics, nomenclature and needs.
Fully White Label
Our community platform runs as if you created it. Not only do you get a geographically EXCLUSIVE right to your industry segment, you also get your own domain name and branding. It’s your community; we are just here to power it for you. The community is fully customizable to include just the features you need. If you are international, relax — we translate.
Facebook encourages fleeting, fickle and sometimes hostile interactions. Our software is designed to make discussions, media, advice and other content both friendly and — more importantly — DISCOVERABLE. Even years after being posted, users can easily find content by brand, product name, topic and keyword. Your community becomes the source for this knowledge. Every post in the community must have at least one topic and one specialty (or brand, depending on how you set up your site). That lets us catalog every post. The left and right panels on each page in the discussion area have catalog filters that let users quickly narrow their “feed” content as desired. Unlike other social sites, we prioritize the user’s ability to FIND content.
In many communities, users need to connect posts that take place over days, weeks or months. Rather than having a dozen different posts, the user can post a chaptered story and add sequential posts as and when they desire, knowing that each post will be connected into a single, cataloged story.
The event calendar permits your staff and members to post events. Events are discoverable by type, sanctioning body, distance and date. All photos, videos and text can be linked to their corresponding events making it easy to look up by event name.
The event "wish list" lets users get a notification when an event that matches their criteria is posted on the site!
The articles area provides curated content written by approved contributors. Articles appear like full-page, magazine-style stories complete with integrated media. Articles are also cataloged so users can easily find content specific to their needs.
Powerful Posting Tools
The discussion area has six different post types; standard discussions, advice requests, chaptered stories, polls, articles and sponsored posts. EVERY post gets cataloged according to your organization's taxonomy. You can update, create and remove categories and topics anytime.
Groups & Clubs
The group area permits members to establish live or virtual group pages with events, classifieds, bulletins, documents and other information. Members can “join” groups on the site and thereby gain access to the otherwise private content posted for club members.
Vendor Support Tools
The vendor support system permits brands to set up their own landing pages and host incoming support tickets. Answers to common questions can be made public, thereby forestalling future questions of the same nature.
Our innovative meet-up map allows members to quickly file their intention to appear at a venue up to 7 days in advance. Members can follow others’ plans and get notifications when their friends plan to do whatever it is they do in your industry segment.
Classified Ad Market
The platform features a fully functional classified ad space that allows users to buy and sell based on specific, industry-specific categories. Users can sign up for notices whenever another user posts an ad for an item the first user desires.
Your team can designate master course authors, who can add courses and video "chapters" that track the user's progress through the course. In future releases, licensees can monetize access to this area.
