Building a community of members with similar interests in home improvement, travel, cooking, exercise, etc.

On January 1, 2008, PMI, Inc. released a revolutionary social networking website for homeowners and boomers. After researching other social networks, we realized that video enhances the social networking experience. By adding video capabilities to the site, members are better able to share their experiences and gain practical knowledge in home improvement, travel, cooking, exercise, etc.

"Since I like to travel, I was able to communicate with other members of similar interest and learned of hotels and restaurants to go to as well as to avoid," says Carlo Castillo of Moreno Valley, CA.

Homeowners have the ability to discuss projects with others that have completed them and can share tips and pointers to improve processes as well as avoid any pitfalls that they may encounter. Because the videos supply a foundation for the social network, members are better able to visualize as well as maintain a more focused discussion.

"As a premium member, I appreciated the speed with which the videos were delivered. Instead of the usual 3 to 4 day wait for a DVD, I downloaded the videos in a matter of seconds," says Leslie Cohen of Newport, RI.

"The ability to replay each video clip at the click of my mouse greatly improved my grasp of Yoga," remarks Audrey Lansing of Minneapolis, Minn.

In addition, the website also offers portal enhanced links to sites on interests ranging from women in history to a wide variety of medical topics and poetry to helpful household hints as well as many other useful and interesting topics.

"Even though I only have a slow dial-up connection to the internet, I greatly appreciated the links in the text/graphic portal section through which I found instructions on how to clean, of all things, my fireplace," says Marsha Sklar of Huntington Beach, CA.
