Creating a profile
Why create a profile? Creating a profile is a great way to show members and users of AWDP what you can offer as a service. Some key areas to make sure you
fill in would be you're:
Description: Let people know who you are, what you do and how you can help them achieve success online.
Location: People need to know if your company is local and if they can work with you on a targeted campaign and a business (like yours) in that area you could succeed for having better local knowledge.
Images: Everyone wants to visually see what you can offer and work you have previously completed. We let you add links, descriptions and titles to all images, so take advantage and share your content.
Remember we optimise profiles for better search optimisation, so make sure your filling out your profile with relevant and correct content. Dont forget that search engines such
as Google like fresh content, so make sure you are regularly updating your profile. We do not restrict how much content you upload or share, images are unlimited.
You have created your profile, it has relevant and updated content, thumbs up! But AWDP doesn't just stop you there. AWDP has a growing article database that is user driven.
We let users submit and share knowledge on Search Optimisation, Mobile, Web design and Development, Business and Marketing and Social Media. We also let users share links
back to their own websites, just our way of saying thanks for sharing. We do not limit the amount of articles you can submit, our articles are very popular and show up
frequently in searches just days after submission. We also intergate social sharing to Twitter, Facebook, stubleupon and reddit. The more you share, the more traffic you generate
to your own website.
Web Design Directory
Our directory is constantly growing with new members, which means to stand out from the crowd you need to make a statement. This is what badges was created for! The more badges
you have earnt the more content on your profile is available to our users. Users are more likely to visit complete profiles rather than incomplete ones. We also allow you to
specify a stap-line a short, descriptive peice of information that sets you apart from other members.
The search functionality will find related keywords from your profile, depending on your location, company name, country and other important information our users need to know
about you so filling out your profile in full is very important.
AWDP lets you share both your company / personal twitter details and Facebook page with users and members direct from your profile. We all know social media is a great way
to access new potential customers. Another great feature about AWDP is we feed all articles you submit to our Facebook users and Twitter followers, so if you write something
unique and informative, chances are you will get some extra traffic to your own website. If you're not already following us on twitter: @awdpweb; Facebook: Facebook.com/awdpweb
