The sourcing process can be exhausting and time-consuming. Sqetch helps you to find suitable brands for you by getting you the exposure you deserve! It’s a great opportunity to receive high-quality leads and connect easily with new businesses.
but first…how Sqetch works?
Now that you learned more about how the platform works, we have small but powerful tips to help you succeed on the platform! Let’s take a look at the video and the tutorial Sqetch has prepared for you:
Improve your visibility
In this tutorial, you will learn to stand out from your competitors on the platform through profile management.
First, It’s important to highlight that when brands look for manufacturers, the system will provide them with a list of best fitting manufacturers ranked based on their search criteria.
They are ranked by manufacturers membership level, profile completion rate, response time, projects completed and sustainability performance. As Sqetch has more than 6.000 manufacturers, to draw the attention of the brands, it makes a total difference that you rank higher in the list.
For that to happen, there are some factors that can help you rank higher:
- Complete your profile & make it professional
- Upload certificate and images
- Become a special member (Bronze, Silver, Gold members rank higher subsequently)
- Desirable response rate and sustainability performance
- Use the platform to finalise and manage projects.
From your dashboard, you can access your profile and make sure all the fields are complete. Select your company requirements, so you support the accuracy of the matchmaking process.
Don’t forget to write a good description of your company and to upload images of your work. Ensure your profile looks as professional as possible and with that, you’ll capture the attention of the best brands
The first step of the matchmaking process consists of brands searching for manufacturers and requesting quotes. On our platform, everything can be done in a heartbeat.
When brands send their request, you can visualise the overall details:
- Product Type
- Number of Styles
- Total Quantity
After analysing them, you can determine if they suit your business. If they do, you can click on “Start a project”.
Still not sure about it? That’s not a problem! You can get in touch with the brand for further details and make the decision whenever you feel ready.
On our platform, managing your orders is simple!
Sqetch will guide you through an easy and step-by-step process by auto-completed templates and task management tools. Through your dashboard, you can manage all your orders and receive & share documents in a few clicks.
