Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 24, 2006
Entrepreneur Magazine featured DWC FACES (http://www.DWCFaces.com) this month as a resource that helps businesswomen grow their businesses. DWCFaces.com, available through DowntownWomensClub.com (http://www.DowntownWomensClub.com), is a social network that allows businesswomen to create a professional online profile in an interactive member directory that is also linked to major search engines, such as Google. It therefore provides registered members with the opportunity to control their overall online image, as well as market their products and services within the DWCFaces.com community.
“Until now, the only reliable vehicle businesswomen had for controlling an online professional image was their company website,” says Diane K. Danielson, founder, DowntownWomensClub.com. “With online social networking on the rise, DWCFaces.com enables our members to take advantage of this newer, more robust technology to economically market their businesses online in a real time, personalized way,” continues Danielson.
Members of DWCFaces.com create a profile that includes a picture, information about their expertise and products, a link to their business website, and keywords to help other members, as well as nonmembers using major search engines, identify their services.
DWCFaces.com was developed after Danielson spent a year researching social networking technologies. “Employers and potential clients are now researching job candidates on popular college-oriented social networks, often finding personal details that can work against the prospect,” says Danielson. “DWCFaces.com allows businesswomen to have a professional ‘face’ and ‘personality’ on the web.”
Active users are turning to DWCFaces.com to support their varying business needs on a regular basis. “I joined DWCFaces.com in the spring and have already leveraged the professional image it provides to secure several new clients,” says Paula Harris, partner, WH Cornerstone Investments. “I value my company website, but it helps to have a DWCFaces.com profile drive more traffic to it and create ongoing opportunities to further brand my business,” continues Harris.
DWCFaces.com is the latest enhancement to the DowntownWomenClub.com career women’s website, and is available for $49.99 a year. Membership includes many other benefits including an e-newsletter, job board, message boards, reference library, a free one-year subscription to Pink Magazine and other discounts and freebies.
