I have just upgraded my membership to Platinum. Can anyone tell me how I can get "Featured"?

Hi Emilienne,

Featuring happens automatically as I understand it, I went Platinum at the end of November and have been featured twice so far. Not bad!

There was a service where when you were featured an e-mail was sent to inform you, but that stopped at the end of the year. Featured pros change every 15 mins, so keep an eye out!! You'll probably appear soon!

Take care,
Katy

It works on a rota Jan 14, 2005

Hi,
You can't pay extra (as far as I know) for being the "Featured Pro" on the home page. You can buy adverts on the Directory pages, though.
Enjoy!

[Thanks for picking me up on that, Alison. I hadn't heard about the e-mail service being discontinued, though.]

Add a picture and cross your fingers :-) Jan 14, 2005

The 'system' selects 'featured pros' automatically, but it only features platinum members with pictures in their profiles.

You do not have to use a portrait, as you will see, if you have a logo or something else you prefer.

You will get a message from the 'bounce handler' when you are featured, but otherwise it is a purely random process, not something you can do anything about yourself.

I don't think it makes a lot of difference to the number of offers you get - I have been featured several times. The 'featured pro' changes every 15 minutes.

Have a nice weekend!
Christine

Uploading a picture or icon into your profile is everything you need to do to be featured.

Good luck!

The e-mail notification was only until the end of December Jan 14, 2005

Not quite - all platinum members with a picture in their profile get a turn.

I think I read somewhere that the e-mail notifications were a temporary feature and were only going to be sent out until the end of December 2004.

HTH
