If you regularly list 5 to 10 pieces -- or more -- of equipment for sale, you really need to consider getting your own DOTmed WebStore.
Here are the 8 great reasons why -- and be sure to read #8:
1.\tIt's automatically stocked with all your DOTmed listings.
Opening a WebStore couldn't be easier. The second you activate it, it's stocked with your listings - and your listings alone. You're ready for business in an instant.
2.\tIt's automatically updated.
As you add new listings, or remove sold items from your main DOTmed account, all those changes are mirrored in your WebStore. So it's always up to date.
3.\tYou can add lots of customized sell text.
Your WebStore can become a billboard where you can promote all you do. Talk about your experience, special services, such as training, warranties, the region you serve, hours of operation - whatever will help people decide to buy from you.
4.\tThere's a link to your WebStore in all your listings.
When people see any of your regular listings, they'll see a link that says "Click here to visit My WebStore." So if you have 23 listings, there are 23 links on DOTmed to your WebStore.
5.\tThere's a mini-Directory of WebStores in every category.
If you have a WebStore, it's listed in the mini-Directory if you list in that category. What's great about this is, even if you don't have listings on the first page, you will have a link to your WebStore on the first page all the time.
6.\tYour listings are prioritized by category.
If you sell Ultrasound Transducers and someone goes to your WebStore from that category, your Transducers are listed first in your WebStore. If you also sell Cardiac-Vascular systems and someone visits your WebStore from there, those systems are listed first.
7.\tIt helps you cross-sell.
If you sell a variety of equipment, say Ultrasounds, MRIs, and CTs, because it's all in your WebStore, people can see it all. They don't see that just from looking at one "for sale" listing.
8.\tYou can email your entire WebStore to customers - in seconds!
For many of you, this could be the clincher feature. We built an automatic email functionality into the WebStore. All you have to do is copy & paste a potential customer's email address, and hit "send." You can do it less than 20 seconds. If you already have a WebStore, here's how to do it: go to My DOTmed, the My DOTmed WebStore, then click "Email this page to others." Your email program will open with the subject line already in place, and a link to your WebStore in the email. Just paste in an email address and bingo! You're driving home new business.
If you are interested and already have our Option E Upgrade, you can open a WebStore for just $20 a month more - you can do that from My DOTmed. If you would like help or have questions, email us here WebStore Help
