What happens if I want to change something on my Listing or Profile Page later on?Simply email us your alterations and we'll make them for you (usually within 24 hours). Dynamic websites ie. those that change a lot, are ranked higher by search engines so you are more likely to keep being found on the internet if you update your info from time to time.
What does it cost to make changes?All changes are free.
Do I really need a Profile Page, wouldn't a Listing be enough?The feedback we get from our subscribers is that Profile Pages generate more referrals than a Listing on it's own. This happens for two reasons:
Wouldn't I be better off with my own website?
I've already got my own website, so why should I List on talkingworks as well?Small websites with unchanging content can struggle to maintain good rankings with search engines, and the cost of using Google adverts to attract visitors can mount up over time. So a Listing on the talkingworks directory can be a simple way to get much better exposure and bring more potential clients to your own website.
A website of my own could be much bigger than a Profile Page.
Do I have to put a photo on my Listing/Profile ?No. There are pros and cons with putting your photo on the internet and we leave that choice to you. However, the internet is a very visual medium and images can liven up your webpage. So, if you don't want to include a photo of yourself, you might consider adding a logo, photo of your room, a cartoon or favourite image that could speak to potential clients, or simply draw their eye to a paragraph you'd like them to read. Follow the "more details" buttons from peoples Listings to see what others have done.
talkingworks also has a collection of images available for you to use on your Profile Page, or we can look for something specific for you ask us about images
How do I pay for my Listing/Profile Page?Once you are happy with your Listing and/or Profile Page we will send you an invoice which you can pay by Internet Banking or posting a cheque.
