How to Showcase Your Business Through Wired Sussex

Being a member of Wired Sussex places you at the heart of one of the UK’s largest and most recognised digital communities. We’ve been working hard to create a new website that’s not only more reflective of all the amazing work of our talented members, but also provides you with more options and help to promote your business and services.

Here are some handy pointers to help get you started when using the new website; to expand upon your existing profile and better showcase your business.
 

Create an overview of your business on the members directory

The members directory is the first place our website visitors look when trying to find prospective suppliers and partners to work with. On the new website, you can:

  • Include your company logo or, if you’re a freelancer and don’t have one, a profile picture of yourself.
  • Add an ‘About’ section to explain who you are, what you do, and who you do it for.
  • Include a branded header image to make your profile more eye-catching.
  • Select 3 core business activities, so that people (and google!) can find you easier when searching the site.
  • Link to your social media accounts, so people can follow you for updates.

This can be done from your business’s dashboard page, which you can find by signing in to your personal account and clicking the ‘Member dashboard’ button.
 

Build a portfolio of your work with the new showcases feature

You can now build a portfolio page to showcase your projects and clients that you've worked with. These get featured across the new website and promoted throughout our social media and newsletters.

Each of the showcases are framed around the headers of ‘The Challenge’ and ‘The Results’, so you can give an overview of the brief and how you were able to help.

Within the showcases, you can include multiple images, text and video to help bring your projects to life and tell your story in a much more engaging way than was previously possible on the old site.

Add showcases by navigating to the menu on the left of your Company dashboard.
 

Include testimonials

You can include multiple testimonials from happy clients to help endorse your business profile on Wired Sussex.

Add testimonials by navigating to the menu on the left of your Company dashboard.
 

Share your news

Let us help you shout about your achievements and news! Whether it’s awards won, new clients secured, senior appointments or office moves, adding your news to our site is simple to do and another way to get the word out about your business and gain visibility.

We also include a roundup of member news in our big monthly newsletter and share these stories across our social media channels to help you spread the news far and wide.

Add your news by navigating to the menu on the left of your Company dashboard.


If you have any questions about putting your business profile together, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with Mia, our Member Services Coordinator, by email or phone: 01273 692888.

Our new website is still in beta and more tweaks and improvements will be coming, so if you have any feedback or find an issue when using the site, please let us know.
