Internet Wonderland For Quilters - QuiltingHub

Information Hubs

There are many information hubs on the internet. A hub offers a listing of all kinds of different groups/stores and sites. Blogs, Facebook, Pinterest and web sites are not organized easily to find on the web. Even with a great search engine, you can spend a lot of time looking for them one by one. So a hub does that sorting for you. It's a great place to start your search. Finding one store, one teacher's site, one manufacture, one by one on the web is exhausting. And many users just won't work that hard. So a hub gives them one place to go to search for all of it.

But not all hubs are equal. They are only as good as the sites listed there and unhelpful if their information isn't fresh. The more a hub excludes groups and people, the less useful it is too. A hub that only covers one manufacturer, one affiliated organization, one state or region, is obviously self-limiting. But a hub also needs to organize its information in a way that the user can quickly focus on what they need and ignore the rest.

Here are some of the things a good information hub can accomplish
  • It can be accessed and added to by the community to suggest, verify and report errors on any listing.
  • It should tell you how current that information is.
  • It can connect a worldwide data base to your local sources and happenings.
  • It can map your local stores, guilds, museums, galleries, and service providers from worldwide database.
  • It can provide you with a list of stores, happenings, galleries and guilds along your travel route.
  • It can find your brands, service providers, guild speakers and internet shops.
  • It can find the nearest shop by brand or service.
  • It can locate speakers and teachers by their skills and specialties.

Quilting Hub is a truly innovative hub that has all of the features you don't always find. It's large enough to be comprehensive. It's organized in such a way that it's not overwhelming for someone searching on it. There's active phone help should you need it. And it's set up to be affordable and for listers and to permit them real control over their listing, their visibility and their internet presence. For the person searching, utilizing an information hub slashes your search time. If you wish to be found it multiplies the possibility of that. There really is no downside to a using and being part of a good information hub.

Do you need help to use QuiltingHub?

QuiltingHub comes with comprehensive phone help and lots of hand holding. Even if you are very nervous about computers, you've got the help to do this.

When do you update QuiltingHub?

When the information changes, change it there first! Information hubs are useless if they are not up to date. So when the class changes or the new dates are up for the meeting, put it there right away.
