This page is designed to give a brief overview of our member association. All companies having a listing in the ShopLakeNorman.com Business Directory (Deluxe, Standard or Basic Listing) are invited to join the association.
There are No Fees. Membership is based on Participation and members have the opportunity to enjoy numerous incentives & rewards. Each member will have their own unique User Name and Password to access a secure Member Page. Members will also be able to enjoy an interactive Bulletin Board exclusively for their use.
Members may submit an article that they believe will be beneficial to other members. The article should be informational and not a company ad. SLN will build a Banner Ad for the company submitting an article, if that article is posted. The Banner Ad will appear near the top of the article, and the Banner Ad will link to their website.
Deluxe and Standard Directory Members are entitled to FREE personal Deluxe Classified Ads:
- Three Ads per year for Deluxe Directory Members
- One Ad per year for our Standard Directory Members
Our Deluxe Directory Members now have the option of maintaining their own listing.
It is the desire of SLN to keep the directory up to date and we will always make necessary corrections for all of our members at No Cost.
SLN Members will enjoy discounted advertising options per the following schedule:
- List less 40% to Deluxe Directory Members
- List less 25% to Standard Directory Members
- List less 10% to Basic Directory Members
From time to time, we all learn of a product or service being sought by someone we know. SLN encourages our associate members to share this information with another member. We ask that a member send their lead via email to an appropriate member and send a copy to ShopLakeNorman@aol.com. SLN will build a Banner Ad for the member providing the lead and we will host their Banner Ad for 30-days on our Photo Gallery page and/or our Discount Coupons page. Banner Ads will be part of an iFrame Block that may be shared by other members. When a member is not sure who could benefit from their lead, we suggest that they consider posting the information in the Bulletin Board. This service is designed to be used exclusively by our members.
Offering Discount Coupons is a powerful way to bring new clients to a wide variety of business establishments. SLN will build and host a Discount Coupon in exchange for the referral of either:
Along with their coupon, SLN will provide 30-Days of premier Advertising Space* on our Home Page for their referral(s). Ads will be located within an iFrame block and space may be shared, on a rotation basis, with other members qualifying for that space.
- One New Deluxe Member, or
- Three New Standard Directory Listing Members
*Members May Select An Optional Pay Per Referral Plan
Other Member's Discounts
