One of the first steps to getting the most out of the SupplyFinder platform is to register on our platform and create your profile.
Having a good profile allows you to develop your brand and customise the features of the business portal to your own preferences and interests.
By accurately completing sector and country preferences relevant, targeted news and opportunities are available at your fingertips through your SupplyFinder dashboard. This can help you understand developing sector trends and stay ahead of the latest opportunities. You can also receive a weekly newsletter roundup of the most critical news and content, opportunities and events in your chosen sectors and countries.
Your SupplyFinder profile is also a great place to help you build your brand. Provide as much information as possible in your profile page to ensure that you don’t miss out on potentially valuable connections and opportunities across the business portal.
Equipped with your profile, you can also take advantage of some of SupplyFinder’s user-friendly sharing features. Do you want to post a video of a speech you gave at an industry conference or a link to an annual report or white paper from your firm? Post them on your dedicated profile page for all users to see and share them with your Supplyfinder connections and other networks to raise awareness of your brand.
Alternatively why not write a guest blog? Writing a blog on a business topic of interest to you and our members can help you get recognised, share knowledge and inspire your peers.
Your profile picture forms an important part of a first impression when other members see your profile or networking activities. It also helps support your brand awareness. Although the SupplyFinder portal provides a digitally generated avatar this is essentially a placeholder and we would encourage you to replace it with an actual photograph of yourself at your earliest convenience. Providing a real image allows others across the business platform to put a face to a name, assists you to increase your network and reinforces the connections you make.
Adding a photo of yourself on SupplyFinder couldn’t be simpler. Simply go to Information and Settings (top right-hand corner of the screen) and in the drop-down box select Account Settings. Click on “Edit profile photo” and simply drag or click to upload.
If you would like further information or help on completing your profile or writing a guest blog, as always we are here to help. Please email: [email protected]
