Those of you familiar with the IMD may be aware of the double page features that we are able to provide as part of the directory. Placed the the Equipment Guide, a company profile page is a fantastic opportunity to enhance your exposure within the IMD.
What does it include? To put it simply, anything you want and it’s easy. All we need is an article about you or your products, some good sized jpeg pictures and a company logo, then our design team will do the rest. Once the design is completed you will receive a copy for approval before publishing.
One of the benefits of having a company profile page is that it guarantees you at least two pages in the directory all to yourself, branded with your logo and your company style. Once approved it will also appear on your online listing and can be distributed across our web platforms where it will stay for at least five years.
Anytime a new company profile page is completed it will feature as a blog item right here! If anybody is interested in participating please feel free to contact me and we can discuss your ideas. There is also lots of information on company profiles in the IMD mediafile which is available at www.internationalmilling.com.
It’s the busiest time of year to be part of IMD as the deadline approaches. So far some 1200 of you have already updated which guarantees your place in the printed edition and for those that haven’t it is as simple as a few clicks on your mouse. To confirm your details online visit www.internationalmilling.com and log into your account or you can register if you are new.
The vital next step for everybody is making sure that you are getting the most out of your listing with IMD. Don’t forget that there are many useful guides and product lists featured that all offer excellent opportunities in increasing your exposure. Something as simple as adding your logo to a listing at little cost will stand out on a page, remember this is also distributed across six different web platforms and our smartphone app, PLAPP.
If you are a manufacturer of milling equipment you will benefit from featuring in one of IMD’s Equipment Guides, they’re smart, they’re practical and they’re free! All you need to do is email me requesting a guide form and send it back filled with your product information. You can can have as many guides as you want and even strengthen your pages with the use of product pictures.
Welcome to the blog for the International Milling Directory.
With the publishing deadline for our 21st printed edition of the directory, there really is no more exciting time to be part of it. We already have over 1200 companies registered with IMD and I fully expect that number to be closer to 1500 before we go to print.
I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome back all of those continuing their listings from last year, and also those who are new for 2012/13. I’m sure that together we will enjoy growing as a global community, and that this blog will be a vital piece of the puzzle in achieving that.
It will feature all of the latest news from IMD such as company updates, new products and events & shows from around the world, bringing you all of the news directly associated with your directory. For this reason I encourage your participation just as much as mine. When your company launches a new project, acquisition or even a a new member of staff we’d like to know.
Over the next few weeks I will be introducing some of our new members and those who have updated for 2012/13, also I will keep you up to date with progress in publishing our 21st printed edition. Until the next time, I’ll look forward to hearing from you.
