Today’s VOB FAQ: “Can I add my business’ profile from my phone?”
IMPORTANT VOB MESSAGE: a short while ago we implemented a new mobile “invite” form for those of you looking to add your business to VeteranOwnedBusiness.com using your phone. We’ve already had a numerous submissions but wanted to give an overview of the process for those who are a bit confused:
If you hit our red (blue for nonprofits) signup button on your phone, you will not be taken to our signup application but rather a simple “invite” form. Once you fill out basic contact info and hit submit, ***YOU WILL GET AN AUTOMATIC EMAIL INVITE TO JOIN VOB (please be sure your email address is correct).
Why we’ve done this:
Over the past 10 years, business listings have evolved from a business name and contact info to a comprehensive business profile including a detailed description, keywords, tagline, website link, hours of operation, NAICS Codes, geographic areas serviced and much more. We get 100s of requests and track 1,000s of system visitors a day from government agencies, global corporations and every day consumers (sample list: https://www.veteranownedbusiness.com/veteranbusinessowners-users.php). Our goal since launching on Veterans Day 2008 is to help grow small businesses owned by veterans, active duty military, reservists and military spouses by helping get YOUR products/services in front of those who want to do business with you! Simply put: being as detailed as possible when creating your profile helps increase the likelihood of this happening!
In short: setting up your membership and creating a business profile takes about 3-5 minutes. We feel it’s much easier and faster to create a profile using a desktop/laptop in order to copy and paste the aforementioned profile details from your website and/or other places… not to mention it cuts down on the possibility of submitting inaccurate information.
***Please Note: this link will automatically take you to our signup application if opened on your desktop/laptop. If opened on a mobile device, you will again see our mobile contact form you just submitted.***
Have additional questions, need further help or need one of us here to create your profile for you? Please email us at [email protected] or call us at (877) 862-5478 x3. Please note: we receive upwards of 500 calls a day. If you call and get our messaging system, we recommend sending us an email as emails gets put in VOB’s support queue.
