Getting Started – Small Business Owners

After registering, you will be presented with the opportunity to upgrade your profile to a “VSNPro” Account. As a VSNPro you will have more opportunities for your Profile and Offers to be visible on the VSN Network. You can see what the difference between a “Standard” membership and a “VSNPro” membership here: Features

If the time isn’t right for you to upgrade to a VSNPro you can navigate to your profile page to begin creating your Offer.

How does this benefit my small business and clients?

When you list your business in the VSN Network, you will also have access to great tools customized for small business professionals. Think of VSN as a gateway to your website, specialty skills, upcoming event, or just about anything you would like to promote. In your VSN Profile Page, you can promote visitors to join your Facebook Group Pages or visit your other online properties such as Pinterest Instagram, Twitter, Google+ or website. This helps guide your clients and dramatically can increase your leads and referrals.

The number one way to attract lasting customers and clients is with great customer service. At VSN you have the opportunity to begin a dialog with a viewer that can become your VIP client.  This dialog may be as simple as a viewer searching on Google and finding your VSN Offer to interact with.  In the simplest form, this interaction could be the viewer clicking on your Facebook group page link or website link then purchasing an item or service you offer.

By expanding the way people find you on the internet in niche services such as VSN can dramatically boost sales and interest in your products and services.

VSN gives you the ability to expand your reach and visibility by displaying your profile and offers publicly to potential clients.  And of course you always have the option to make your profiles private.  You can change settings on your account page.

Along with the recommended way of building your business by word of mouth, effective digital presents can really boost sales and VIP memberships. VSN is optimized for Google Search and Facebook. Millions of people search for services and skills offered by small business professionals. VSN optimizes content and purchases relevant keywords that are directed to your profile cards and offers.

This is a no-brainer.  If someone searches for a phrase like, “Graphic Designer in California” and selects a VSN advertisement or VSN organic content, the link will lead to pages displaying your VSN Profile Card and Offers.

* Currently you cannot advertise your Facebook Pages within Google Search, VSN fixes that problem.

As the VSN Network continues to grow, we will continue to optimize your profile and offers to be seen by the largest available audience interested in services and skills with networks like Google Search, Google + and other social platforms.

When you display your offers and profile as a VSNPro, viewers can connect with you from various social media networks that you wish to display on your profile.

VSN makes it easy for clients to find offers locally and nationwide.

How to create a good Offer and Profile

Creating an effective offer and profile to display to your viewers is simple. Start by watching some of our video tutorials. Make sure all of your form fields are complete and the links are directed to your sales pages or websites. Double check after creating a profile and offer to make sure that your links go to where they are supposed to.

Where will my profile and offers be displayed?

VSN optimizes your profile to be seen in National and Local Channels such as local search and relevant small business and freelancing Content Pages. For example: if your place of business is in California, your profile will be displayed in the California directory. The more you interact with VSN (comment, log in, view other offers, profiles etc.) puts your profile in front of others with fewer interactions. This algorithm is also implemented on the front page and other search and media pages you can interact with or may appear on.

As the VSN Network expands, we strategically place profiles to maximize exposure of the VSNPro Profile Cards and Offers. These placements are determined by user flow and what pages are popular.
