Our community manager will also reach out to you to further explain how you can use our platform to its best
First, you have to become a member and log in. The platform basically is quite similar to LinkedIn. One can post a query or start a discussion and other members can respond to that. For instance, you may be looking for a specific cotton fabric for an order, or want to recruit a marketing intern. So you create a post with the relevant requirements like color, quality, and size of the fabric or job description and share it with the community.
Members have to create their company profile on the platform which will be visible to all members. As a member, you can create your own content for the community, post a query, share successes or comment on other posts. Also, you can be a part of specific targeted groups and participate in discussion threads within the group.
Your post will appear in the timeline of all members who are logged in at our platform. They can like your post or leave a message in the comment box. Our community manager will always follow up on all queries posted.
