We noticed that schools were contacting suppliers outside of their region which wasted their time and yours. We have solved this problem.
Schools can now search for suppliers in specific geographical areas, which will help schools find exactly what they are looking for and eliminate the chance of you receiving a bad lead.
How to ensure that you show up in search results
With this new feature comes great responsibility.
To ensure that your company shows up when schools search for a product/service you provide, you need to include all the regions that you supply to. This is absolutely NB! To do so, follow these steps (I've used the SchoolAdvisor page for demonstration purposes, but the same applies to all company listings).
First, login and go to "Manage Listing"
Next, insert all your branches under the "branches" tab
To do this, click the "new" button to add a new branch. Make sure that you fill in all the info on this page.
MOST NB! Please make sure that you specify the region under "Select where you supply/service"
What areas do you specifically supply to? If you don't enter this information, your listing will NOT show up when schools search for you.
For clients that listed their company before we launched this functionality, we have defaulted you to supply throughout all of South Africa. To edit this, click the "unlink current region selection" button. Once you have done that, you must select the country and the region where you supply/service (don't leave this blank or it will default to the whole country).
