What is ?

Upon my arrival at scheduled meetings pertaining to , I am finding that many of our members are unsure as to what it's all about, so for today’s blog post, I will do my best to clarify. is a Master Builders KwaZulu-Natal online directory, the purpose of which is essentially to promote our members and to steer business in their direction.

We are advertising quite extensively and some may have seen it advertised on the front cover of the 2010 Midlands, Zululand and South Coast Yellow Pages.

How it works:

If somebody is looking for building industry related service, they will connect to the internet and go to From there they will choose from the menu’s provided, they will select a heading e.g. General contractors, choose a service e.g. “House Builders” and select the region they fall into e.g. “South Coast.”

At this stage a list of all the South Coast based members who build houses will appear on the screen, if you click on a contractor from the list, for example “Ingelosi Construction”, you will then go through to the Ingelosi Construction profile page. I have used them as an example as their page is already complete, click link to view: Ingelosi Construction

The purpose of my meeting with members is to get the information I need in order to get their page up and running. At the time of my arrival, please ensure that you have following available.

6 - 7 Jpg photographs
Company Logo (Digital Format jpg)
Company profile
3 Testimonials

If you only have the photographs and the profile, it’s enough to make your page look reasonably complete. It is however important to note that the Logo and testimonials do convey a greater level of professionalism.

Other links to sample pages include: Metric Pools, Progress of Empangeni, and Leocon CC.

I look forward to meeting with all of you and if you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me on one of the numbers provided.

Kind Regards
