  9. Why would your members want to be in such an extensive directory? Isn?t there a lot of competition?
    We at think there?s a distinct advantage to having similar works in one place. From a sound business perspective, it makes sense to be near others doing similar work. Why? For the same reasons that cities create districts of similar enterprises; the more people who see the work, the better chance of creating a connection.

  10. Why do some members? listings appear more than once in the SEARCH results?
