Top 10 features to get more leads from your industrial website

  •  

1) Contact info:

Make your contact information readily available on every page of your site, and make sure it is easy to find. The most important activity a user can take on your website is to contact your highly skilled, highly paid, and competent sales force. Potential customers are looking for information and you need to make it easy for them to get answers that they can’t find on your site. Besides, unless you operate an online store, it is impossible for you to make even one dollar without a customer calling your sales team. Put your contact information at the top of every page in big bright text.

What happens after a engineering project is posted?

  •  

The idea behind Industrial Interface is pretty simple.  Engineers need stuff and suppliers sell stuff.  We put the two groups together in a very efficient way.  An engineer describes what she is looking for in detail, and our system puts her project in front of relevant suppliers who might be able to help.  If they can help, they pay us a fee (to encourage high quality connections and keep the service running) and then they can contact her.  That sure was simple.  Now I’m going to give you the details.

Making our suppliers more accessible to engineers

  •  

When industrial salespeople sign up for our site, they complete a detailed supplier profile including their products and services. Our system stores all this information in a database, and we use it to match engineering projects to the right suppliers. To show this we built some quick links to basic search pages that list this information in an easy to read way. We’re hoping by making this data accessible, our users will gain a deeper understanding of how our system works. Read the rest of this entry »

Help suppliers help you by posting complete project details to Industrial Interface

You tell us all about your application, what you’re trying to do, what the big project is, problems you are having, things you’ve tried, etc. Read the rest of this entry »

If you are a technical salesperson and have ever pinged an engineer who just spec’d in another supplier for a part you could have supplied, then this post is for you.

The problem Sales people face is two fold:  (1) Figuring out who the real decision makers are, and, (2) Making sure that you are meeting with that individual when they are working on relevant projects.  Even when you think you and your decision maker are best buddies and that you will get called when you are needed, you are probably missing business.
