ClosedNet is a white labelled platform allowing you to create a networking and trading marketplace for you and your members to use.
Split into 4 main areas, creating a ClosedNet will allow your members to:
ClosedNet is hosted on the Kodajo.com platform.
We’ll provide a copy of the Kodajo.com website but completely rebranded for your organisation with your own logos, colours and images.
Your new site is then hosted at its own domain name and code snippets can be provided so you can place login, search and registration boxes on your main site.
Your members will then get all the Kodajo features and functions. Read more about them here.

ClosedNet is an all-in-one solution for your organisation allowing you to instantly offer a full suite of products to your members.
ClosedNet is an online network for your members to connect, collaborate, interact and network online.
Your members can create a complete profile for their business marketing the products and services they can offer, and selling them online.
Place advertisements around the site from advertisers, sponsors or preferred suppliers to earn additional revenue for your organisation.
ClosedNet creates an environment where you can communicate with your membership. Whether its to update them on news, start an online discussion, tell them about an event your hosting, or share a website or document.
The platform broadcasts each discussion topic you start to all your members who can then comment on the news item that you create.
This allows and enhances discussions between you and your members and members individually.
ClosedNet hosts a range of features to help your members find each other quickly. Once they have found each other they can connect profiles.
Once connected, members can discuss topics of interest, get help and advice from the network, ask and answer questions, share news and collaborate online.
There’s also an introduction and referral feature allowing members to refer other members to each other and so form new connections and discover new opportunities.
Your new site will be host to 4 rich directories of content provided by your members.
Visitors to your site will be able to search for businesses, special offers, jobs and also the online marketplace (described in more detail in the next section), all of which are uploaded by your members.
Each of your members will be able to create a full 10 page profile for their business, adding as much information as they like.
Each business can choose its own unique profile address at your network's domain name, e.g. www.yournetwork.co.uk/profile-address-of-business
Your members can list products and services for sale online through the platform, create discount and voucher codes and set discounts applicable only to other members of your network.
The marketplace is searchable by keyword and category and your members (or any visitors) can purchase a basket of goods from different merchants all in one transaction.
Members that require a quote for a particular project they are undertaking or service they require can complete a simple form requesting quotations. This request is then matched to other members that can provide quotations.
Another feature provides online feeds from the OJEU and other lower-value government tenders which your members can access online.
We can also accommodate any RSS feeds you want to display to your membership to assist with online trading.
Your new network is in fact a “network within a network”. This means that the network for your organisation is hosted within a large network, available to all businesses, called Kodajo.
Members of your network (if you wish) will therefore be able to connect, interact and trade with businesses that are members of Kodajo.
Kodajo is host to many of these networks, meaning that your members can interact with businesses within these networks as well (like they would in the real world).
Alternatively your network can remain entirely closed.
The “network within a network” model has many benefits both for you and your members.
Not least is your ability to attract new members to your network from members of other networks and the wider Kodajo network.
As users of Kodajo browse the site they are shown "suggested networks" they might like to join. Once you create your ClosedNet we’ll actively start promoting your network to all other members of Kodajo.
Your new site comes with a management system that allows you to place adverts around the site.
You can use these advertising spaces to earn revenue from paid advertisers or alternatively to promote your sponsors or partners.
You’ll also get control over the home page and logout page of your new site where you can place larger advertisements.
Your network comes with a a powerful, but easy-to-use, management system for you to manage your online network and its members.
Here you can manage your own network’s profile and set membership information and fees (if applicable), view and search for individual members, add new members to the network and manage membership applications.
You can also view membership statistics to see how often individual members are logging into their accounts and using the site - and even send reminder emails to those who haven’t logged in for a while.
The key to a successful network is the engagement of your members. This means, making sure that your members are aware of the site and its features and functions, know how to use them and understand the benefits of doing so.
Onsite engagement is handled by us, this means that we provide a full tutorial to all new members when they join the site, and provide ongoing help and assistance. We also send emails to your members when they join to give information and assistance in using the site, all branded from your organisation.
Offsite engagement is handled by you and means that you have to take the time to tell your members about the site when you meet them, hold events, speak to them on the telephone etc.
