  1. I already have a Web site. Why do I need a profile?

    Shaping Environments opens up a world of professional business opportunities previously unavailable to industry clients and consultants. When your profile is set up, you're active. This means we automatically showcase you online-24/7, for as long as you wish-to a world of individuals or firms who've paid for the right to know more about you, your firm, and/or a project you've posted. That's powerful access. For details, see the Learn More section for real benefits that a Shaping Environments profile brings you as part of membership, even if you have your own Web site.

  2. Why should I pay when other sites let me connect for free?

    As many in the built world know, free information doesn't always mean current, useful, or profitable. Shaping Environments is specifically designed for professionals who are already successful, and want to stay that way. A paid membership provides access to projects, consultants, and industry information worldwide at a level of comprehensiveness, focus, and convenience that other sites don't provide. That alone has deep value for industry professionals. Beyond this, the cost savings and potential increased return on investment from just one successful connection made on Shaping Environments far exceeds the low cost. Of course, only you can decide if a membership is right for you. We're dedicated to serving your needs in the built world, and look forward to proving the value.

  3. What if I have a consultant profile set up but I'm too busy to take on new work?

    Shaping Environments helps you in several ways. You still can enjoy benefits by:

    • Continuing your membership, and leaving your profile active for continued exposure and future opportunities.
    • Continuing membership, and indicating you're not currently taking on new projects.
    • Making your profile inactive for up to 6 months, with no charge during those inactive months. When ready, just contact us to reactivate your profile.

  4. What if I have a client profile set up but I am no longer looking for consultants for my projects?

    Shaping Environments provides you with options:

    • If you do not plan to be searching for new consultants in the near future, you might want to consider switching to a consultant membership. This will allow you to maintain your profile on our site and allow others to search for you and your services for a reduced monthly fee.
    • Or, you can choose to inactivate your profile for up to 6 months, with no charge during those inactive months. When ready, just contact us to reactivate your profile.

  5. How many consultants can I search for with one project posting?

    Only you know your needs at any one moment. Shaping Environments lets you save time by searching for as many types of consultants in one search as you require.

  6. What if I can't find the type of consultant I need?

    Shaping Environments strives to be the most complete service available. As you use our service, please let us know if you're searching for a type of consultant but can't locate them from available categories. We'd be happy to create a new category that benefits your search and creates better connection for all members generally. We welcome your suggestions.

  7. Why would I want to have both a client and consultant membership?

    As a business owner, you know the benefit of increasing your visibility to prospective clients, so a consultant membership makes sense for you. At the same time, you may also need to bring in "a few reinforcements" to supplement your project teams. A Dual Membership with Shaping Environments provides you with the opportunity to both seek and be seen.
