You MUST Live & Work inside the 919 area code to be approved for membership.
Simple Guidelines to get you started (okay you could call them rules :)...
Our #1 RULE... "Professionals don't SPAM Professionals!"
PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:
Complete your Profile using Your Name [NOT your Business or Organization name]
Add a Personal Photo when joining. [Instructions on How to upload a Personal Photo]
Reach out to others via their Profile Comment Wall.
Reply to the comments and communications from other members.
Make "Friends" [it increases your ability to communicate].
Contribute where ever you can add value with your expertise.
Reply to others in a business-like manner.
Introduce yourself and include a link to your website.
After you've met someone here - meet offline [you're both local's].
Join the "Group" for your Town and other "Interest Groups". - Invite others to join us.
Invite other local business owners/professionals you would recommend to join us.
PLEASE DO NOT:
Use the Internal Email system to send more than 5 Bulk emails, promotions, deals, notices or solicitations of any kind - When in doubt don't sent it out! - [Internal Email is for relationship building].
Post any material that is not family friendly (Children can access this site).
Use the Event, Forum or Blog functions as a way to circumvent the above.
Post any Advertising on another Members Profile.
Post Events for a 'Range of Dates' (day of the Event only). This is due to a limitation to the platform we run on.
Use the word 'Inside919' in any Promotions without permission.
Threaten, Insult, or Harass another Insider. [cause for removal]
Engage in Unethical or otherwise Harmful Business Practices. [cause for removal]
Post False or Misleading information. [cause for removal].
Hire someone to manage your Account or post using your Identity [makes no sense to have someone act for you in such a small local network].
Post an Event for someone outside Inside919 (non-Insider).
Post ANY Material or Content which you do not own or have permission to post. [Please honor Copyrights - cause it's the right (and legal) thing to do].
Don't create a "Group" that is centered around your Business (Groups benefit fellow members and are NOT commercial).
Don't turn off receiving emails from the network - the point here is to connect folks (you can select the "Digest" notices - you will be removed if you do this)
