What exactly is The Sheridan Directory?
     The Sheridan Directory is a public service business directory.  It's a free
     service designed to help keep business revenues in the Sheridan areas
     first so that our tax revenue dollars don't drive off to Billings or Casper.
     Most people don't know that you can find just what you need here.  This will
     save time driving, wear and tear on your vehicle, save money on travel food,
     and most importantly strengthen our financial community by buying local. 

     The Sheridan Directory is also an online advertising medium providing a full-
     function webpage advertising medium at a low $9.95 per month.

Why only Sheridan? What about the surrounding communities?
     The Sheridan Directory launched in Sheridan first and is already in the
     process of building the data bases for Dayton, Ranchester, Buffalo, and
     their surrounding communities.  Each community will have their very own
     directory listing and will be included in the master search page once each
     search engine is finished construction.  This way you can find what you
     need where you are, then extend out to other local areas next, and finally
     result in going elsewhere if you really can't find it nearby.

How do I use The Sheridan Directory?
     There are two ways to access The Sheridan Directory:  The first way is by
     computer.  The Sheridan Directory is available 24/7 by visiting our
     website at www.TheSheridanDirectory.com - this site supports all browsers.
     The second way to access The Sheridan Directory is on your smart-phone
     browser (Blackberry, PDA, iPhone, etc.) Once you find the business you
     are looking for just click on their number and your phone will automatically
     dial the number for you - no more having to write down the number and dial
     it later.

How are your listings sorted?
     The Sheridan Directory has two lists:  Category listing and alphabetical
     listing.  The category listing helps you find "Xtreme Clean of Sheridan"
     under Category "C" for Cleaning Services, and under "J" for Janitorial 
     Service.  Alphabetically you simply look under "X" for Xtreme Clean of
     Sheridan.  All of the category listings are in the alphabetical listing.

This is a great service. Can I advertise my business here?
     You bet.  If you are interested in advertising with us check out our
     Advertising page to see all you get for just $9.95 a month.  A fully-
     interactive, full-function single web page to show off your goods and
     services.  Or, if you already have a website, we can easily insert it
     that site, or hyperlink it, to your advertisement page. We can even 
     create a full FLASH web page for $35. We also provide full flash web
     design starting at $250.

Why are your advertising prices so low? Don't you want to make money?
     Our first goal is not to make money, it's to strengthen the financial
     foundations of our business community simply by helping you find what
     you need right here in Sheridan first before driving off to a big city
     and spending our community's dollars somewhere else and strengthening
     theirs.  What good would it do The Sheridan Directory to get rich if
     other businesses struggle and close their doors?  We have over 1300
     businesses in Sheridan and most people don't even know they exist.
     The Sheridan Directory hopes to eliminate that.  

How do people know that I'm advertising in The Sheridan Directory?
     In either the Category or Alphabetical listings your business will be
     specially identified by our trademark symbol   and your mouse will
     activate your listing's hyperlink when you bring your mouse over it.
     On your smart-phone you will be able to highlight and click on the name
     of the business - a feature other businesses do not have.

I don't know how to make a web page. Is there another way?
     Yes.  We provide Flash web page and web site creation services.
     Once the page (or site) is created will will provide you with the 
     source so you can edit your content at your leasure with a simple 
     drag-and-drop environment to make your updates as necessary.

I want to design my web page ad. Are there guideliness I should follow?
     We have a fully functional server cabable of handling all of today's
     modern web sites.  Your website can be HTML, CSS, Flash, etc. as long
     as it conforms to standard web page protocols.  This option is for 
     those that have some experience designing pages and who are already
     familiar with the time it takes to make a good site.  

How often can I update the content of my web page?
     Web pages may have basic changes needed each week to update the page
     and it's content - If you design your own webpage you can change as much
     of the content as you desire as often as you like.  Contact us for more
     information on how all this works - it's not complicated at all.

Am I permitted to FTP access my web page?
     For the security of all our customers, access to our servers by remote,
     ftp, or any other means is not permitted by any customer.

What payment methods do you accept?
     All major payment methods are accepted by online payment or by mail.  If
     paying online please use the secure payment link on the bottom of the
     Advertise page or by accessing it directly here.  PayPal online allows you
     to use all major credit cards, e-checks, and direct pay via online banking.
     It is the most versitle and easist to use - it's also extremely secure and
     your money is guaranteed.  Or, you can mail in your payments to PO Box 6686,
     Sheridan WY 82801 by check or money order.  Please do not send cash.

I have to ask. Don't we already have directories? How are you different than the Yellow Pages?
     We do have directories scattered about the town including the Yellow Pages.
     However, most directories require you to pay for membership or advertise
     with them first in order to be included in a directory or listing.  How
     The Sheridan Directory is different is that it provides a public service
     listing of ALL businesses first then offers advertising as a feature.
     Where most directorys have only a few hundred listings, we have over 1300.

     When you try to find a business in the Yellow Pages you have to sort
     through all of the Billings, Casper, Cheyenne, and other outside cities
     just to find the local listings.  This is frustrating.  And, although many
     business "serve" Sheridan, their business located in Billings or other
     cities, does not bring tax revenue to our town; rather it takes it away
     from all of the hard working local residents and businesses that deserve it.

My business listing needs to be added, updated, or removed. How do I do that?
     That's easy.  Just contact us using the link at the very top of the page
     and we'll make the necessary adjustments as quickly as possible.  

I have more questions. Where can I find the answers?
     You can check out the full terms of service here to find the answers to
     most questions you may have.  Or, just contact us using the link at the
     very top of the page and we'll get you the answer you're looking for quick.
