One of the first things you’ll want to do after joining WoodWholesaler and creating your membership, is to click on the USER DASHBOARD and create your first listing. Now most of the time so far, I’ve seen members posting a product right away but I recommend that you first create a listing about you and your company.
Step 1 – Click on Add New Listing. Your first choice is Category and you’ll want to select something that will describe what your company is all about. For example, if you’re a trucking company that hauls lumber then you will want to select FREIGHT. If you’re a lumber mill then select SAWMILLS, if you’re a remanufacturer then select SECONDARY MANUFACTURERS etc. If you notice in the top navigation, there is a link to CATEGORIES and this will be where you will benefit from when someone in the future is looking for your service or product.
Step 2 – The only mandatory field in the listing details is TITLE. This is where you type the name of your company.
Step 3 – Scroll down to DESCRIPTION and type whatever you would like to describe your company. Say a little, say a lot.. there is no right or wrong way.
Step 4 – Contact Details. Here it’s pretty self explanatory. If you do have more than one office or mill, it’s best to put in the head office here and then if you want, create other listings for your other mills or offices.
Step 5 – Make sure if you have a company website to fill the entire url in here. Remember, any links are good for your business so if you can get people to click from this listing to your home page on your website or your product page which may even be a better choice!
Step 6 – Finally, upload your company logo in the images. If you have other images of yourself or main products or services, upload those as well.
That’s it. You’ve now created your first listing and more importantly, exposure about who you are and what your company is all about. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out and put a comment below and I’ll be sure to answer your questions.
