Want to make more of an impact on the Procurious network? Here are a few pointers to help make a bigger splash across this online platform.

Complete your profile

Nobody likes to leave a job half-done… This also rings true on Procurious where profiles are sometimes being left incomplete.

How to complete your Procurious profileIf you didn’t get around to filling out all of your employment, education, or personal details when you registered on Procurious, you will notice that we prompt you for this information on subsequent log-ins.

We’re not trying to bug you, but as our members will attest, you will get more out of the network if you adopt a more open approach to sharing.

Entering your ‘location’ is important as it allows other members to locate professionals by vicinity.  Start typing your location and Procurious will suggest places based on your keystrokes.

Likewise, ‘industry’ and ‘category’ will also prove useful when it comes to finding other Procurious members in similar roles to you.

Network, network, network

How to grow your Procurious network
If you haven’t yet made many friends on Procurious then you’ll want to take advantage of our ‘Build your network’ feature.

It’s easy to grow your network from here, just click the green ‘+ Add to network’ button next to the members of your choosing.

You can even filter Procurious members by using the search filters, or by typing a name into the search box.

For a more detailed look at this invaluable feature – we suggest you read this blog entry.

You might have also noticed the ‘Get connected’ area that we’ve added to the site. This randomly highlights three other members (at a time) that we think you should connect with. Added all three? Just refresh the page or click ‘View more’.

Share like your life depends on it

If knowledge is power then you should make sharing content on Procurious one of your priorities. This is a network for like-minded individuals, many of whom will take more that a passing interest in what you have to say.
