Partner Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I become a partner?

Does your organization offer a really great service that you know could help Idahoans, but you struggle to connect with those whom you could help the most? The Live Better Idaho website helps you make those connections. Services listed on Live Better Idaho are for broad in range, which means people initially interested in one thing could find their way to an unrelated service altogether. Imagine--a person looking for help finding a job could also learn about how to cook healthy meals as well as how to file their taxes for free, all on the same website. 

By becoming a partner on the Live Better Idaho website you can maximize your potential to get your service to the people who need it. It is free to become a partner and easy to list your service. 

Watch our video introduction to learn more and then contact us to discuss listing your service.

What is the MOU for?

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between an organization and the the Live Better Idaho website ensures both parties agree to do their parts to make Live Better Idaho as useful as possible to Idahoans. Partners need not be intimidated by the MOU; the requirements are simply things a partner would want to do anyway, such as ensuring content stays up to date, valid, and helpful for people interested in their service. Likewise, Live Better Idaho agrees to keep the website organized and professional and help partners as they work to list their services.

How do I get more user accounts for my admin staff to update content?

Each service has one user-account with one username and password to make maintaining content simple. Partners are responsible for delegating the login information and content updates to whomever they choose.
