ICN Gateway is more than a project directory, when used properly it is a powerful business marketing tool.
The most important step once you sign up to Gateway is to create a company profile. Your company profile is your resume, it gives a snapshot of your business that sells the benefits of your products and/or services as well as your organisational strengths. Simply, the better your profile the better the information displayed to project owners and procurement managers, so it’s important you know how to use ICN Gateway.
There are two important steps to ensure your profile stands out:
1. Make sure you complete all sections. The more our consultants know about your company, the easier it is for us to match you with major projects
2. Focus on what is important. The first sentence of your company summary should tell a story and reflect core capabilities.
Once you have your profile set up it’s time to get Gateway to work for you.
