Overview of How the Professional Directories Work
The six (6) directories form a connected and comprehensive database, covering thousands of individual categories in which to place your professional listing.
Your Basic Listing is free and that includes the placement of your professional listing in its base category (both in your Industry and Profession) and provides a link to your various pieces of information (image below, click to enlarge).
The number of directories in which your professional listing will appear depends solely on which categories (Industry and Profession) you choose to be listed in. There is a modest fee for each additional category selected, but no additional charge to be included in multiple directories. Your professional listing will be listed in each directory that contains each category selected.
The reason it is set up like that is because Libraries And Directories is focused on making it as easy and intuitive as possible for all our members and visitors to find precisely what they are looking for, as quickly as possible. Our Libraries have become one of the largest and most trusted information sites on the net. With the years of design and development that have gone into our directories, we expect they will follow that same path.
While the Basic Listing is free, you can upgrade your listing it 2 ways:
- Listing Enhancements : examples of enhancements are: additional industry categories, additional professions, bolded name, personal headshot, a short description, etc.
- Listing Options : each options places an ICON on the horizontal line to the right of your name, in each and every category in which contains your professional listing. Examples of options included Profile, Expertise, ICMs, FAQs, and Blog. The following image shows an upgraded listing (Click to enlarge).
Each of the Listing Option Icons provides a link to either a page on your personal website, or displays one of the LAD templates for that particular option. Samples of those templates / pages are included in the documentation on individual options / icons.
Changes to your listing can be made on line, at any time.
