HOW TO LOG IN AND EDIT/ADD STUFF to your listing on www.bethelmaine.com:
1. Go to www.bethelmaine.com.
2. Click on Members at bottom of page.
3. Click on Member Area in left sidebar.
4. Log in. (You'll see options if you have forgotten your username or password.)
Edit away! Put good copy in both description boxes (think search words!). Add photos (must be .jpg or .gif files and low resolution*). Add promotions. Add a video. Add a press release. Look at your stuff from the front end - is it clear to a website visitor?
5. Sign out when finished. (If you forget, program will eventually sign you out.)
Formatting photos to squares looks best -- particularly the small photo (100 pixels x 100 pixels) which appears when your business is in a list. The larger photo (300 x 300 pixels) does not need to be square -- but square looks very good.
DO NOT USE Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) for adding events, promotions, press releases -- unfixable bug in program -- sorry. Good habit for bethelmaine.com is to use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
