A. Your Business Sector Dialogue
More important than finding your company on the web; what will the visitor find when he or she gets there? This is the moment the real business dialogue begins
1. Your New Site Visitors’ Experience
Your web site pages were not altered by Web Sector but your site was enhanced.. When you authorized and activated your Company Profile, you also added 4 optional Web Sector pages to your site that can be viewed and used by your visitors. You determine, beforehand, when and if these pages will be presented to the visitor.
There are sound reasons and specific benefits to these pages that should be considered carefully.
a. Three Visitor Scenario’s
(1) The Person Who Is Hurried & Knows What She Or He Wants
For this scenario we have prepared a special page design that gets the visitors in, serviced, out and happy. We have surveyed the people who work the web on a daily basis. They are most often the serious client, potential client or the personal interface to someone who is. They need speed, familiar ways to do things, coherent results and the option to browse around if they have time.
(2) The Person With Time To Kill
For this scenario we have the color, graphics and content of your regular web site pages and the option to move to your regular home page at the push of a “see the whole site” button.
(3) The Person In Between
Simple and obvious navigation is implicit
b. The Visitor Dialogue Pages
Each one of the Web Sector is designed to be uniform from site to site and to efficiently deliver the information requested by the Visitor in the form specified. These pages are uniform and simple in design but are adjusted to carry out the site’s existing color theme. Each page is dominated by the company’s logo, has standard navigation buttons and performs it own special functions.

B. The Importance Of Profile Maintenance
1. We All Share the responsibility for maintaining the accuracy of the WWWBS Information Data base
Your company and Web Sector share the responsibility for providing up-to-date and accurate information. Your company is the ultimate authority on you profile content. Everyone’s generic information expires 1 year to the day after profile activation. 30 days before expiration and again 14 days before expiration, your CEO or the CEO’s appointed officer will be notified of the approaching expiration and be asked to have the profile reviewed and ,if necessary, updated.
If the information in your identity profile is to remain unchanged, an automatic email reply from the original addressee will set the expiration ahead 1 year.
If your profile requires maintenance, your appointed maintenance person or outside service should be directed to make repairs by initiating a Web Sector profile maintenance session. Upon completion of maintenance, the expiration date will be automatically advanced.
A maintenance session can always be used to advance the expiration data of your profile.
2. If you have stopped active business and shut down your site.
You should initiate a profile maintenance session. Select a notice Template. And enter any additional information needed to clarify your company’s status. We will automatically notify visitors attempting to get to your site via Sector Search of the circumstances you have give us to publish. This type of automatic visitor notification can be used to inform about a permanent of temporary condition.

(2) We have sold our business. Please refer to the new owners.
(3) Our site will be down 2 weeks for repairs. We expect to reopen on May 1st.
(4) We have changed our name. Please go to our new site at xxxxx.
b. If you have given the job of profile maintenance to a qualified and registered 3rd party
3. If our tests of your site do not produce the information specified in your Dialogue Table Of Contents
Or if visitors report breakdown of your company’s dialogue content, your CEO or appointed officer will be notified (by e-mail)and requested to make remedy by reducing you catalog contents appropriately
This does not eliminate your company from the data base, but until your profile is corrected, your Quality Tier Rating will be lowered thus informing others who understand the Quality Tier Status System system that your table of contents or identity may not be temporarily unreliable.

Web Sector Directories serve many functions from simple categorization of businesses to identification of business relationships and the collection of cross industry information. Each directory is identified, defined and published to the respective business communities. Each directory has a life of its own and demands specific information care by its membership.
Directory Memberships can be developed outside of Web Sector or by our in-house indexing staff. Each directory is sponsored a special interest group, organization or indexing objective. Members elect to join most directories. Some House sponsored generic directories are mandatory for profile activation.
Each directory elected by a Web Sector client offers index keys and opens relationship channels that bring clients and special business sectors together for short or long periods of time. Such directories also provide addition insight into the over WWWBS data base and give Sector Search engine users new and varied search criteria.
