          3. DASHBOARD

          The Dashboard enables SmartGuy City Network Leaders  (and other members) the ability to manage their account. While every member's dashboard is basically the same, SmartGuy City Network Leaders have additional options allowing them to manage all businesses within their city network(s) at the touch of a button. 

          Once logged in, you will automatically see a quick snapshot of your city network(s). Specifically, you will be able to see each city’s Premium members,  Number of views, Premium Earnings (all time, last 3 days, last week, last month),  Premium/non Premium Articles and more. You will also see links to the additional sections mentioned below. You can select to verify new businesses that join in your city yourself, or allow the default setting and have our team do it.

          (If you do not see the links below on your browser, reduce your screen resolution).


          3.1. PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

          The Professional Profile is for internal company verification purposes. Here you can edit first name, last name, your personal email, your personal contact number, your password. And an image of yourself. NOTE: Be sure your updated PayPal ID is there to receive your Premium commissions!

          3.2. BUSINESS PROFILE

          Your Business profile lists all of the businesses you have added,  providing you an instant view of the impressions each business has received, over a 24 hour, 7 day and 30 day period.

          MEMBERS
          Since members get a full editable web page with adjustable colors, sections, more images and of course, enhanced SEO to rank higher on search engines, we have added an additional section to access those features when clicking the three dots, called “User Menu.” Here you can add a custom Tom Banner Image, additional images and add additional website sections (i.e. Features, Testimonials, etc.)



          3.3. REVIEWS

          The Reviews tab lists the reviews you have placed for others. It lists the company with whom you gave the review, a link to their page, the review you posted and the status of the review (whether it is pending or approved).

          3.4. PAYMENTS

          The Network Leader Payments page displays the payments you have received from local businesses in your city networks. 

          The filters allows you to query the information by:

          (1) Company name,
          (2) Commission status  (pending or paid)
          (3) Membership Status (Subscribed or unsubscribed)
          (4) By date


          It also allows you the ability to click on the details and see the details of all the payments from that business:

          SmartGuy City Network Leaders can modify the city description that appears on the top of their city network, by clicking DASHBOARD and then clicking the widget on the top right corner of the city.  Leaders can then enter the city description, as well as select an image or a video to upload should they desire.
