What is the b2b networking/make a star service all about?
The b2b network is designed to help buyers find the right suppliers.
We do this by giving buyers the option to choose to select products they BUY and also exhibitions they attend. We also ask suppliers which products they SELL and which exhibitions they attend. We can then give buyers the opportunity to communicate, meet and possibly do business with the right suppliers based on the categories and selections they choose - easy isn't it!
Please note: Buyers control the communication levels and will never be contacted by suppliers directly. Buyers must register to enable this fuctionality and the 'make a star' or 'add event' icons will automatically add the associated products and events to any registered buyers admin area. All instructions are clear and explained at all times.

What is the sales lead service all about?
When buyers land on a supplier's product profile page, they can request information from them, ask a question and even download a product PDF from this site. We ask buyers to add a few contact fields to register their interest before they are allowed to see PDF files or to contact suppliers. When buyers have requested information the suppliers will get an email with the buyer's contact details. The mandatory fields are first name, last name, company, country and email address. The suppliers can then send the buyer a 'follow up' email.
Why suppliers should use Labface.com
Suppliers must sign up for the annual service before their company profile pages can go live. The associated 4 product profile pages, videos, PDF downloads and other live links will not appear until suppliers or their company representatives have regisitered interest. The annual service is £1800 per year and includes 4 main product profile pages + 12 additional pages per year.
Suppliers can go to the microsites to find out more and to view a pdf and video.
A member of the LabFace team will contact the supplier to go through a series of fundamental questions. We can then start the process and build a very targeted and fully optimised microsite program on the labface.com site. We take all the hard work out of it.
By registering, suppliers will also be able to take advantage of b2b networking functionality which allows buyers to communicate with them.
Finally, we offer suppliers a sales lead link on ALL of their product profile pages which means they can capture the contact details of potential buyers!
Why Buyers Should Register
By registering, buyers can quickly sign in, view and request information from suppliers, via one of their targeted product profile pages. They can also use the b2b networking functionality to match suppliers with their buying requirements and exhibition attendance.
There are many more functions to help buyers when they register and it takes just two minutes.
How and why we add your unique content for you
We need to keep duplicated content down to an absolute minimum on this website. Therefore, we rewrite your company profile based on information that is already on your website or by the information you will supply to us. We want to create the best possible user experience and this means that we should provide a very different view/angle when it comes to your company and your associated products. Our unique editorial style means it is great for visitors and search engines.
How and why we write 4 main product profiles for you
On the LabFace.com website we don't ask suppliers to do any work in this department! We also want unique content on this website, because that is what end-users and the search engines want to see. Our unique editorial style and focus means a great experience for everyone and we want to keep it this way. Therefore, we use existing material from suppliers and totally rewrite it for LabFace.com in our own way - a way that users can enjoy it, absorb it and respond to it!
We choose 4 main products to start with and then research the keywords or phrases that buyers are searching for. We research this thoroughly and then write your product articles with these keywords in mind. We can then do other internal and external SEO and marketing to ensure that your pages are seen by the right people on LabFace.com
Remember, the 4 main profile pages are just the beginning. We then write up to 12 additional pages per year for you and these can be general press releases, news items, product profiles or applications.
Why we add images to your product profile pages
We feel that images create a more visually appealing page and text which relates to a product that people can see is much more powerful when combined with a graphic. That is why you get a free image with each of your product profile pages as well.
Why we add PDF files for you
This is your choice and is not compulsory.
Some suppliers like the idea of giving visitors a specific PDF file to download from each relevant product profile page. What's more, we ask potential buyers for a few mandatory fields before they can download information so suppliers get to see their contact details!
How and Why we add videos for you
Not only do we add an image for each of your product profile pages, but we'll also add a video too. The video can be one you have already produced or we offer a service where we can produce videos for you.
We add the voice-over and this can really enhance a product shot video of around 50 seconds in length. Alternatively, send us a nice product video of up to 3 minutes (as a .avi or similar multimedia file) and we'll upload it to the relevant page for you.
How many web links do we add for you?
We add a unique landing page URL for each of your product profile pages.
Wherever that product is on your website, we send people directly to that page - no general home pages here if you don't want them. We understand that people want relevant results quickly and that is why we send people to the correct pages on your website. Each targeted link will be added to each product profile page with a 'landing page' icon. However, we'll add a home page link from your company profile page.
b2b networking for suppliers - reach buyers!
This opens up a whole new world of possibilities - and yet it is SO simple. Take a look at the b2b networking page for more information.
Fees for suppliers
We add a company profile, 4 article pages, videos, PDF files and a product image. You then get up to 12 additional pages throughout the year.
In this time we send potential buyers to your pages and you receive clicks, sales leads (via your pages) and direct contact from potential buyers.
This service includes all live links, Videos, PDF files and b2b networking services. The cost per year for this fully enhanced service is just £1800 per year.
This fee includes a sales lead link on all of your pages, which means that potential buyers can ask you a question or download material. All suppliers will then get the contact details for that potential buyer!
It also includes 1 page per month, which will be rewritten and added to your list of pages.This ensures that your content and presence is growing all the time on Labface.com
So What else do you get with the annual service?
As well as all the live links, contact info, videos, PDF's and optimised pages, you also get one additional news, application or product page per month, which will be rewritten by us in full at no extra charge. All pages will include a sales lead link and a PDF file download so buyers can request or download information from you. Suppliers will then capture their contact details!
You can also have an image with each article as well and a relevant link to your website will be displayed so people are directed to the right page on your website! We archive all content so we'll send people to your pages for years to come and it remains unique content to the search engines.
So what does Labface.com need from you?
All we need from suppliers is relevant information to enable us to write a company profile and 4 main product profile pages.
We can take information from pages on your website or PDF files for each product. We then rewrite the content and optimise the pages for you.
We can produce simple product videos/slideshows (if you don't have your own videos) and upload PDF files so potential buyers can download them - we really do take the hard work out of it for you.
You can then send us one page per month (in addition to your 4 product profile pages already on the site) and these can be application notes, news items or another product profile.
We take all the hard work out of this for you and it is our aim to build a targeted list of optimised pages for you on labface.
What other online marketing services do you offer?
Management suite area explained
The management suite is your central administration area and everything is controlled from here. You will have many different options and functions to choose from. Your MS area is YOUR control centre. You will see your MS when you register and sign in.
You can view products and events you have saved to your favourites list via the 'add events' and 'make a star' links on the events pages and the product pages from suppliers. This functionality enables you to store and save the most relevant information and then to contact suppliers when you want to do so.
General functionality for buyers
Buyers are free to view supplier profile pages at any time. If they want to download information or contact suppliers they can do so without registering. However, if they wish to contact a supplier via a contact form (or download a PDF file) we ask them to fill out a few mandatory fields of information. Registering also opens up so many doors and includes a unique, yet simple b2b networking system. Buyers can then save their favourite products and events and contact suppliers when they wish to do so. Labface.com is designed to give buyers information on products and services from relevant lab suppliers and our simple platform makes this very easy!
