Many New Features to Be Added

Well, you spoke and we listened. Many of our customers have sent us feedback about things they'd like to see in the directory. Some were great, and we are going to include some of your suggestions! In the next week we are working on integrating several new features into the directory. Just a taste of what we are adding are:

  1. Business Phone Number on the Business Card Page
  2. Email Address on the Business Card Page
  3. Business Address if they have one and want to use it
  4. Extended Description on the Business Card Page of up to 5 paragraphs
  5. Their own logo on the Business Card Page. Ideas for demensions are about 250x250
  6. Better and more streamlined add url forms
These changes will make your listings on UTN much like a listing on a Yellow Pages website. It's also great for people who have businesses but don't have a website yet. This new business card page will help serve as your own personal business web page with your contact information on it.

This literally invloves rebuilding the database from scratch and importing everything, but it's better we do these upgrades now when we only have about 4k listings as opposed to 1 year from now!

Comments / Suggestions? I'd love to hear 'em!

How is this going to impact informational listings for sites not related to a business? What if the site has no phone #? Not all sites will benefit from a yellow page type listing. Can this be optional? Perhaps an extended feature for paying customers but optional for free sites the editors are adding?

The extra fields for the business such as phone number, email address etc will not even show up on listings that do not have values for those fields. They'll also be used only for the paid submissions. So these wouldnt be applicable to any listing that is not submitted by a customer who has given us permission to post their company details.

Really, it's only going to apply to businesses. Non commerical sites would probably not benefit from these changes.
