Although there are several benefits of listing a company on IBNESTO, here are the 5 most important reasons why we think you should list your business on IBNESTO as soon as possible.

Not only is business networking the cheapest way of marketing your business but is also one of the most effective ways to raise your brand awareness and increase sales.

This is where IBNESTO comes in.

2. Increase Sales with Online Word-of-Mouth

Word-of-mouth is undoubtedly one of the most effective ways to get new customers and increase sales.

In fact, marketers also refer to word-of-mouth referrals as word-of-mouth marketing or word-of-mouth advertising, as your satisfied customers tell other people about your business, and thus help you bring in more new customers.

Most businesses, especially small businesses, acknowledge the power of such offline word-of-mouth referrals and there are multiple research studies that confirm the fact that traditional word-of-mouth recommendations from a someone you know are much more credible to customers than online reviews from people you do not know.

But that is not always the case.

According to another research study, 79% of consumers say that they trust online reviews as much as they trust recommendations from people they know.

What most business owners do not know is how much more important the online word-of-mouth has become thanks to the internet.

Here is why.

Let’s say that you run a business that manufactures parts for electric vehicles, and that you supply these parts to OEMs.

Since the use of the internet in the past decade or two was significantly less compared to how much the internet is used now, you would have been able to get new customers and close sales deals just because of word-of-mouth marketing by your satisfied customers.

However, with the ever increasing use of the internet, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, that sales funnel is changing.

Now, when your happy customers tell someone about your business, they will first research about your business online before they contact you.

And one of the most important things they are looking for are the reviews of your business, which are also known as online word-of-mouth or electronic word-of-mouth referrals.

This is where you can use the IBNESTO platform to record online word-of-mouth referrals or online reviews of your business.

All you have to do is get listed on IBNESTO and you’ll be ready to collect reviews.

And do you know the best part?

Unlike other review platforms that do not implement review verification for all the reviews recorded, all reviews that are published on IBNESTO are 100% verified reviews so your potential customers can deal with you based on the assurance fostered by the authenticity of the reviews that we collect and publish.


3. Get More Customers from Google and LinkedIn

When you list your business on IBNESTO, you are ready to get more business from clients who are using IBNESTO to search for manufacturers, suppliers, contractors, and other engineering and technology companies.

This benefit is available to all businesses listed on IBNESTO, regardless of whether they are on a free plan or on one of the paid plans.

However, if you purchase one of the IBNESTO plans with marketing services, i.e. the Premium Business plan, the Supreme Business plan or the Enterprise plan, we will make sure that you get customers from Google and LinkedIn in addition to just getting customers from IBNESTO.

When it comes to marketing your business on Google, we use two ways to help you get more sales through Google.

In addition to that, we also enable prospective clients find your business on Google more easily while they are exploring the web, with the help of content marketing.

This involves creating high quality written and video content that is strategically designed to educate and entertain the online audience in your industry while providing them an opportunity to learn more about your products and services, at the same time.

In this way, your business can continue getting unlimited customers, all for free!

Similarly, to help you market your business on LinkedIn, we setup and manage LinkedIn ads to directly target the companies that you want to do business with.

If you have purchased an IBNESTO plan which includes marketing, then the cost of managing these ads on Google and LinkedIn is included in the plan that you have purchased, so you will not have to pay anything extra to us to manage and run your ads.

The cost of content marketing and content creation is also included in the Premium Business plan, the Supreme Business plan and in the Enterprise plan.

Please note that you will have to pay for the advertising charges to Google and LinkedIn separately.

So when you purchase an IBNESTO plan with marketing services, your business can benefit from the best of all worlds.
