Profile – Hints & Tips

Big Tips

  • Use Chrome to build your profile
  • We’ve created some great ‘How To’ videos. For these and other FAQ, click here
  • DON ’T FORGET – the most complete profiles will feature higher in the search results – so use your % score on the first page to maximise your exposure
  • Ensure the images you wish to use are ones that you have the right to use on a public website and that they are high resolution but not larger than 5MB. You won’t be able to upload any if they are larger.

User Name

You can now change this and we suggest you make it your company name as this shows in the url and helps SEO. Note the underscores appear automatically when you type a space. This url would therefore be: http://www.the_user_name_should_be_your_company_name

 

Email Address

Email address in Account Information is a unique email address that is the administrator email address – not the one that clients see. If there is already a profile set up with this email address it won’t let you register another one with it.

Contacts

The email address in contacts is the email address clients will see. Add a generic email address for enquiries here. If someone moves on or is on holiday, at least the enquiry will still get through. You can add multiple contacts so if you have different people for different areas or even just a large team of sales contacts, put all of the contact details on your profile.

Website URL

For the web address you MUST type in http:// before www. If you don’t it won’t save.

Cover Photo

We suggest you use an image that is representative of the destination and ideally your services within it. This will appear as long banner across the top of your profile page.

Adding Destinations

To select a destination you need to add the city first to bring up the country. E.g to select South Africa start typing a key city e.g. Cape Town. If any cities are missing please let us know at the bottom where it says add city.

The destinations will appear on your profile in the order that you add them so put your key destinations first. By adding a city you are adding a sub page for that city. If you don’t want a sub page for that city, don’t select it. You can add it later if you want to.

Activities

For DMCs and CVBs add activities to the sub-destination pages – These give the event planner more information about the locations your services cover. They will also appear on destination guides and in Virtual Brainstorms which means that if an event planner clicks on those then your profile will also be found.

The first image you load is the one that will be used on the profile page.
TIP* – you can now delete the activities that were posted

Destination Descriptions, Images, and Location Specifics

These are important for event planners and lets them know about your expertise in each of these locations you cover. Make them rich in content and it will impress the event planner. Be sure to load links or videos otherwise you will have a gap in the page next to your text.

It’s also important to have at least basic details for every destination page otherwise our system text is shown.

Images

Pictures paint a thousand words and with planners now being inspired more than ever by imagery – this is the place to get seen. Remember each image should be less than 5mb

TIP* If the images are high res, then load a few at a time to avoid crashing your page

Link your Company

Link your company – Ensure you are linked to your DMC or Representation company or Global Sales office for hotels.

Add Links or Documents

Add links or documents – You will have images, brochures, floor plans and insurance certificates that are constantly being asked for. Provide links from there here or upload them.

Destination Guides

Destination guides will pull the best supplier profiles in that destination

Make sure activities are filled out as this another way to be found
