Send us the latest news from your company
Conqueror provides the members with a range of PR and marketing packages that can significantly accelerate the business processes of the member companies. We encourage our members to send us the news about all the latest achievements of their company which we regularly publish on the News section of the Conqueror website.
All you need to do is send us the news about the latest goings-on in your company and we will publicize it in our news section and newsletters. This will boost your online visibility and help you publicize the strong points of your organization. This in turn will encourage members from across 243 cities to contact you for their freight requirements. Moreover, we also publicize the news of your company on our social media handles which further augments your visibility. So whenever you are moving a special shipment, partnering with network members on an important project, celebrating a special event, or receiving an important recognition/certificate/award, make sure to send us the details of your achievement.
Collaborate with your network partners
Always keep in mind that in order to get new projects from your fellow members, you also need to send out a share of your shipments. The easiest way of doing this is to have a look at the Network Directory and contact those agents who are based in the areas where you can offer business. Collaboration implies both receiving as well as providing business to other members. Therefore, when you give out shipments to your network partners your cooperation will be amply rewarded by the businesses you receive from your fellow members. This will form the basis of long-standing cooperation among the agents and also help to increase the project volume within the network.
