Company images - how important are they?

 

An old saying goes- ‘A picture speaks a thousand words’. This is especially true when trying to build a reputation or a trust factor online. When interacting with a prospective trade partner, you will like to resolutely establish the authenticity and business credentials of the individual- is the trader having a well set production base? Can he/she complete my order on time- is their factory base resourceful enough? Before investing your precious time, efforts and money- you will want to clearly establish these facts, and the same applies for you with regards to your prospective trade partner.
The problem with words is that without backing up through relevant documents there is every chance that your prospective trade partner might have reservations of proceeding on with your partnership. Thus, supply such important details as your accurate company credentials, certificate of incorporation, website links, company logo and updated financial records. Alongside these, a selection of focused, clear company pictures will serve to seal your reputation in the eyes of your prospective trade partner.
A good selection of company pictures will include images of your production/processing facility, snapshots of your associative services such as storage and transportation, professional images of your administrative staff and work-force and a detailed summary of your product range through crisp images. When posted on your Tradeguide24 profile, they add more color, gravity and relevance to your profile.

How to compile a business friendly message?


It’s important to be as precise with your message as possible. Stay relevant to your requirement, identify your particular needs and provide specific details about what kind of interaction you seek from the trader, Eg- the consignment size, delivery duration and other requirements. Most importantly, avoid adding any personally identifying details such as telephone numbers, email ids, website links, fax etc.
Here is a sample of an effective and business friendly message-
Subject: Looking for 100 pieces in your durable car cushion range.
    - A Clear Subject Line
Hello My name is Ben Johnson and I’ am a Car Accessories dealer based in Michigan, USA. 
    - Small Introduction
I was looking through the website and happened to see the impressive listing of Car Seat Cushions range that you intend to sell. I will be very much interested to pursue this trade with your company. I am looking at Car seat cushions for the small to medium sized car segment. I am more interested in everyday, durable material and will not be interested in leather or other high end product range.
     - Requirement
As an initial order I’am looking at a consignment of 100 pieces.
     - Order Type
Kindly reply to me at the earliest and attach a suitable quote for the same.
     - Suitable Ending
With warm regards,
BenJohnson, Ben’s Car Dealership

How to write an effective product description?

 

An effective, well compiled product description is nothing but a simple paragraph that gives the best representation about your product(s) to an interested trader. It’s very likely that the prospective seller/buyer has arrived at your profile with a clear interest, and a possible intent to trade with you. However, if your product(s) has competition from other traders on Tradeguide24 who are selling/buying similar product(s) then the way you display your product, your profile’s completion and an attractive product description could be the deciding factor.

How to write an effective product description?

 

An effective, well compiled product description is nothing but a simple paragraph that gives the best representation about your product(s) to an interested trader. It’s very likely that the prospective seller/buyer has arrived at your profile with a clear interest, and a possible intent to trade with you. However, if your product(s) has competition from other traders on Tradeguide24 who are selling/buying similar product(s) then the way you display your product, your profile’s completion and an attractive product description could be the deciding factor. 
An effective product description usually flows as below-

1.) A lively Introduction – tell them who you are


2.) A brief description of your Product and Company

3.) Emphasis on your experience, and why choose you?

4.) Suitable ending – Ask them to contact you

 
 
 

Can I use my Tradeguide24.com profile as my Company’s webpage?

 

Of course, your profile page on Tradeguide24 can be an effective replacement for your Company’s web page. With your Tradeguide24 profile you enjoy a set of advantages that are not possible with your website-
  1. Since Tradeguide24 is a reputed wholesale marketplace, your listing here is likely to have better visibility on search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo than your company website (if you have not implemented very robust Search Engine Optimization (SEO) on it).
  2. Your Tradeguide24 profile is grouped together with thousands of other trading profiles- your prospective trade partners are more likely to ‘discover’ you here than by accessing your individual website that is clubbed together with a million similar websites over the world-wide-web.
  3. Contacting you over your Tradeguide24 profile is a simple matter of filling a form. Our effective backend services ensures that every query and trade enquiry directed your way reaches you well in time- while most company websites are poorly designed products with unclear methods of contact.
  4. Your company website is handled, maintained and run by a professional web development firm who may/may not be aware of your express requirements and your specialist field- the kind of business you are looking for and how to achieve it. On the other hand, your Tradeguide24 profile is part of the Tradeguide24 website which is maintained by a team with years of experience and expertise in the field of online trading. We know what you are looking for- and how to get it.
  5. A company website is far too costly to create, maintain and operate as compared to your tradeguide24 profile.
  6. Finally, it’s better to be hosted on a system that provides you specific tools to trade, allows you a chance to interact with your fellow traders, allows you to advertise and promote your products- than merely showcase the products and spend more time and energy promoting the system than the products itself- as in the case of your company website.
You can place a link for your Tradeguide24.com profile on your website so that visitors to your website can navigate to your profile.
Of course, we can help you with your company website as well. For effective Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services that allow you to rank well on Google, Bing and Yahoo, contact  us NOW!!
