What is ISNetworld®?
ISNetworld® is a prequalification system that has one of the largest collections of hiring clients. It acts as an online safety auditing system for these clients to determine if you are a safety risk working on their facilities or job sites. This is determined through an A-F grading scale on several safety components (EMR Letter, & OSHA logs, safety programs, & insurance) . Once you get ISN® certified you become part of an elite group for industrial marketing.
Implementing Direct & Indirect Marketing with ISNetworld® Certification
No matter which approach typically works best for your company, developing both (indirect & direct) marketing strategies to the fullest will foster greater success. You are already paying for your ISNetworld® account, there’s no downside to making the most out of every marketing tool they provide you with your membership.
Developing your ISNetworld® company profile will help your company be more visible to potential Hiring Clients.
Within your ISN® membership, you will find a section called ‘promote my company’. This section acts as an introductory or profile page, providing a quick snapshot of some of the most important aspects of your company. It is important to keep the “promote my company” page up to date with the following items:
- Company Logo
- Summary of Services
- Company Website URL
- Company Office Locations
Fully developing your company ISN® profile will get you noticed. Hiring clients can search for contractors in a specific area and request a connection. There are two main reasons for developing your profile:
- Prequalification: A large chunk of hiring clients use ISN® certifications to prequalify you to bid on upcoming jobs.
- Timing: Hiring Clients often seek contractors in a specific area because they have a current contract that became a liability for them. For instance- if for one reason or another, a current contractor of theirs drops from an ‘A’ grade to an ‘F’ grade hiring clients often seek new contractors, making timing very important.
Another simple indirect marketing opportunity available to you as an ISNetworld® member, are ISN® hardhat stickers. You can order these stickers through your membership and apply them to PPE that will be visible on job sites Hiring Clients and those passing by.
