1. Managing a directory of this size is very difficult. Why do it?
At this point in time, Workspace Resources is a full-time occupation for the webmaster. Since I work another full-time job and since WorkSpace Resources has yet to show a profit, it does seem rather strange...To answer your question, you should read our Brief History and our Mission Statement to find out more, but - in a nutshell - we believe in it.

2. Have you won any awards or commendations?
This is something else about net "culture" that is unusual. Because of the vastness of the Web - billions of pages - you must bring your site to the attention of "Awards Editors". The awards were basically public relations; another way to acheive increased exposure and higher traffic volume and the links provided from these "Best of the Web" commentaries proved valuable. So we have, on occassion, spent the time to do this. Some of these awards plus a number we didn't ask for are on our Awards Page. Recently, a large number these award sites have become nothing more than "Free-For-All" link lists. Therefore, we haven't sought awards in quite a while.

3. Why do you give awards to other Web sites?
Since the mission of WorkSpace Resources is to organize and promote industry participation on the internet, it made sense to us to select a collection of the best examples of Web design from the sites already listed here. The purpose of the award is both to recognize the creator and to encourage others in the office and contract furniture industry to developer better online commuications. You can find our more on the Web Site Excellence Award Page. We don't encourage self-nomination, but if you come across a particularly well done site that meets our criteria, we would love to here about it.

4. How do I list my company in your index?
It is actually very easy and it's FREE! Just use one of the AddyoURL Links, buttons or banners found on almost all of our pages and in the "Site Guide" listing. Fill out the form completely (without using all CAPS) and give us (as called for) either a useable text description (25 to 30 words with no hype) or 10 - 12 major lines carried. If you have any questions about the required format, go to the page where you think you should be listed. First we visit your site, then we list you by hand. The more you help us, the faster we can get you into the index.

5. Why should I add my listing?
The average small company with a low name recognition level might receive 10 - 15 visitors to their site every month that were referred from one of our directories. You might think that wasn't very many, but when you consider that they first had to find our site, then find the category under which you were listed, you realize that these visitors weren't just looking, they were looking for something and, if you had what they were seeking, they were ready to buy. That's a qualified sales lead every other day, FREE! You may have heard our motto...Link Up and Thrive!...We mean it.

6. Where else can I promote my site?
The most effective method of site promotion is to get a link placed on another site. Find sites that are non-competitive yet appeal to the identical market you are trying to reach. You can trade links, banners and informative content. We have and it works. We will trade with you.
