Features of Our Business Pages...

Below contains detailed information for admin and members with regards to managing and interacting with our business pages.

Business Page Advertising & Packages

Our Business Page Packages

Prior to creating a Business Page, admin must select a package. We will always offer a free package for Business Pages. We do, however, offer premium packages for those group administrators that require more options. For example, we offer a 5-day spotlight package, and a 5 day featured Business Page package. In both cases, Business Pages will be displayed more prominently across the community, but mainly in the Business Pages home and browse pages, as well as on the main homepage.

Spotlight means that Business Pages are shown on the Business Pages home page and in the sidebars on the browse Business Pages page. A slider also appears above our Business Page listings. All members will view these spotlight groups as they have to scroll down to view the available Business Pages.

Featured means that Business Pages are shown on the homepage (though in a second tab which members must click on to view) and in the sidebars on the browse Business Pages page.

Advertising a Business Page

Only Business Page admin may advertise their Business Page. Advertising can be done via the Business Page profile. There, admin will be able to see a 'Sample Ad', under which they have the option to create an ad. Members may also create an ad via our advertising pages. We advise group admin to view those pages for more information prior to creating an ad.

Advertisements on Business Pages

Advertisements appear on all Business Page tabs. We can offer an option where admin can pay for a package that doesn't show ads. We do not offer this currently, however, should there be interest (please contact us), we will create a paid package for this.

Business Page Information

Description, Tags & Profile Fields

Description

It's important for admin to describe what and who the Business Page is for. The description does not need to be long at all as it should succinctly describe the Business Page in a few sentences that members can read on the Browse Business Pages page.

Tags

Tags should be added which fully describe the Business Page. If you have browsed our community, you will know of popular tags. You may create a movement by creating your own tag which you should encourage Business Page members to use in their community listings. On the homepage, if it is popular, it will trend and members will be able to click to view all content under that tag.

Profile Fields

There are profile fields which may differ depending on the category selected. Important field include whether the Business Page is an online Business Page, or an online and meetup Business Page. Members may want real life contact and so it's important to add whether you provide this.

Location

Business Page admin may choose whether to add a location to their Business Page. This is important for 'online and meetup' Business Pages, as it informs members of what Business Pages are close to them. A specific location need not be added, Business Page admin may just state their borough or city, but boroughs are best due to the size of our cities, members would prefer to see who is closest to their area).

We advise online only Business Pages to not add a location, as registered members may become confused if they believe it is for meetups. Should you become a meetup Business Page, you may enter a location at any time in your dashboard. Note, multiple locations may be added to Business Pages.

Privacy

Depending on your chosen package, listings and media can be added to your Business Page profile page. When creating a Business Page, admin can select privacy options as to who can post listings and media to their Business Page.

Other Options

Allowing Members to Join a Business Page

Admin have the choice to allow members to join the Business Page or not. Admin may want to restrict the Business Page so that no one may join except those that they invite. Or admin may want to enable the 'approve member' option, so members may click 'join', but admin needs to approve their membership.

Allowing Members to Invite Other Members to a Business Page

As admin, you have the choice of whether you want to allow members to invite other members to join the Business Page or not.

Business Page Admin & Members

Admin

Who Are Business Page Administrators?

Multiple Business Page administrators may be added to a Business Page, but of course, the Business Page must be created by one registered member first. They will then be able to add new admin by clicking the 'Admin' tab on the dashboard of their Business Page. From their they may enter the name of the new admin. It's important for admin to know that new administrators to a Business Page will have the same privileges that they have including deleting the Business Page. NB. any admin added must be a member of the Business Page before becoming admin.

Adding Featured Admin

Admin may want some administrators to be featured, especially f the Business Page has several administrators. Admin and featured admin will appear on the 'Admin' tab found on the Business Page profile.

Members

Who Are Business Page Members?

Depending on your chosen package, members can be added to your Business Page profile page i.e. the option for members to 'join' you Business Page.

Allocating Member Categories

Admin may create member categories for their members. For example, in a Business Page about yoga, admin may create member categories such as 'beginner', 'intermediate', 'advanced'. When non-Business Page members click 'join', they will be prompted to select a member category. In the 'members' tab on the Business Page profile, members may be viewed according to their member category. All members to all Business Pages may be viewed by clicking the 'Members' menu link found on most pages of 'Business Pages'.

Allowing Members to Join a Business Page

Please read the 'Information' tab.

Inviting Other Members to a Business Page

Please read the 'Information' tab for who can invite members to join a Business Page.

Member Notification Settings

Members have the option to change notification settings for the Business Pages they have joined. Just some options include receiving notifications when people post updates, content, or when the follow, like or join a Business Page. It can either be turned off, or turned on for neighbours or all people,

Messaging Business Page Members

Admin can message their Business Page members (those who have joined). They can message, all Business Page members, members within a specific member category (see member categories above) or individual members by name.

Featured & Highlighted Members

Admin may make certain members featured or highlighted and such members can be searched for on this basis.

Form

There is a form on ever Business Page profile so members can contact its owner. Admin may rename this or even remove this. Go to the Business Pages dashboard and to the 'Apps' tab. Click rename, or click manage to see further options.

Business Page Content: Forum, Notes, Polls, Offers, Reviews

Privacy: Forum, Notes, Polls, Offers, Reviews

Depending on your chosen package, a discussion forum, notes tab, polls tab, offers tab and reviews tab will be present on the Business Page profile page. When creating a group, admin can select privacy options as to who can post any of the above to their Business Page and a link to post any of this content will only be available to those members with permissions as selected by admin.

What is the Discussion Forum for Business Pages?

The discussion forum is separate from our welcome forum and specific to each Business Page. Similar to our Welcome forum, admin has the option to make posts stick remain at the top. Members can receive notifications should anyone reply to a post that they created or a post that they like (they can watch topics).

What are Notes?

You can post photos to your notes, and notes written by all Business Pages may be viewed by clicking the 'Notes' menu link found on most pages of 'Business Pages'.

Should I Write a Resource or Note?

Let me give you an example of a Business Page I created, 'Adult Ballet Lovers with a Mental Illness'. I wanted to write about how much classes were. As a resource, this wouldn't help our members with mental health issues in any way, so it was written as a note. I wanted to write an article entitled, 'How Adult Ballet Classes Can Aid Mental Health'. This would be beneficial for all members to read and is relevant to mental health, mental illness and mental wellbeing and thus, this was written as a resource.

Please think, 'Does this article have anything to do with aiding members mental health, mental illness and mental wellbeing?' If not, it would be best to write a note for your Business Page. If yes, please write a resource that will be available to everyone.

What are Polls?

Polls added by all Business Pages may be viewed by clicking the 'Polls' menu link found on most pages of 'Business Pages'.

What are Offers?

Offers added by all Business Pages may be viewed by clicking the 'Offers' menu link found on most pages of 'Business Pages'.

What are Reviews?

Reviews can be added by Business Page members for a Business Page. They provide the community with insight as to how beneficial the Business Page is and hopefully, encouraging them to join. But unfortunately, they may be used to expose admin to e.g. limited posted, irrelevant posting etc. We suggest you remain open and transparent with your Business Page members. Let them know your posting schedule, only post things that are relevant and encourage your members to do the same.

Business Page Listings: Journals, Resources, Books, Products

Privacy: Listings

Depending on your chosen package, listings can be added to your Business Page profile page. When creating a Business Page, admin can select privacy options as to who can post a listing to their Business Page and a link to post a listing will only be available to those members selected by admin.

Adding Listings from the Musing Minds UK Community

Admin have the option to add listings written and added by registered members.

In the dashboard of your Business Page, go to 'Apps' and scroll down to 'Add a Journal Entry', 'Add a Resource Article', 'Add a Book Listing', 'Add a Product'. From there, admin may start typing the name of a listing, or a keyword. It will autosuggest a listing that has been written/added, and admin can select this listing. It will then appear on their Business Page profile in the appropriate tab i.e. 'Journals', 'Resources', 'Books', 'Products' as well as on the settings icon found on the Business Pages cover photo.

Admin, and those allowed to post listings to a Business Page may also click the appropriate listings tab from the Business Page profile. Note that this tab will only appear once admin has added at least one listing from the dashboard. Once a listing is created using this link on the Business Page profile page, a 'Business Pages' tab will appear on that listing profile, linking back to the Business Page where that listing was posted from.

Searching through Listings

Within each tab, there is an option to search listings. Registered members may type in a keyword(s) and listings that match that keyword(s) will appear. This is extremely useful if there are many listings added to a Business Page. Listings can also be listed according to whether they are 'most recent', 'most viewed', 'most commented' or 'most liked'.
