DOTmed has made major changes and improvements to the Services Directory that let you prioritize the categories in which you appear.
We did this because many users complained that too many people are near the top of categories not relevant to their business, thus diluting the value of the Services Directory. This fixes that.
Prioritizing will enable you to make your company appear as close to the top as possible in the categories that matter to you most.
Any company that selects a Category as their #1 choice will be displayed ahead of any company that makes it their #2 choice.
We have made this very easy with a simple 'check box' tool.
If you do not prioritize before we reshuffle all the listings in 2 weeks, your company will be bumped down in the Directory listings. Non-upgraded users might appear ahead of you -- even though you are Upgraded.
Please take a minute to prioritize now. Don't miss the boat when we reshuffle!
You can also set yourself up as a parts seller and be included in DOTmed's new Parts HunterTM
service. The Parts HunterTM
is being launched in 2 phases:
1 - Sellers tell us what parts they carry -- happening now.
2 - Buyers start seeking parts -- starts in October.
Go here for more information on how The Parts HunterTM works.
If you have any questions about prioritizing or the Parts HunterTM
, please call the DOTmed Help Desk at 212-742-1200 Ext. 243.
How to Prioritize:
1.) Go to www.dotmed.com -- logon if necessary
2.) Go to "My DOTmed" (it's your control panel) then
My Services Directory"
3.) Follow the on-screen instructions from there to:
- Choose and Prioritize your Categories
- Set-up your Parts Hunter profile as a Seller
- Update your Equipment Alerts
All these new features will make DOTmed work better for you.
