Explore sectoral Trade 365 websites!
With our web sites that will promote our companies in the sector 365 days a year, our exporters will be able to add their products to the system, make virtual meetings and open up to the global export world.
Digital platforms, virtual fairs and conferences now guide trade. At İDDMİB we made over 1400 bilateral meetings in 2020 with participation of 151 Turkish and 450 foreign companies in 15 countries. Our Virtual Committees were highly demanded by our member companies. Our companies contacted local companies, learned about markets gathered information. We believe that these committees we organized to continue virtual trade with the support from the government, where physical trade cannot be done pleased our members. While it is impossible to find suitable schedule to physically visit 5 countries in 1 week, virtual committees enabled meeting with purchasers from 5 countries in 5 days. In line with the feedback from our members we learned that these virtual activities have turned into tangible commercial relations. This has shown us that it is possible to make sales and increase customer portfolio apart from physical and traditional marketing methods.
Most of our members have their own websites and virtual marketing platforms. Our aim with the trade 365 Project is to provide promotion support to our members that have completed their digital transformation and to offer visibility to our member that are yet to complete the transformation.
Therefore as the second step of the virtual committees we organized, we launched 365 web portal project which will contact our exporters to foreign purchasers 365 days a year. (turkishkitchenware365.com, turkishhardware365.com, turkishhorecaequipment365.com, turkishcasting365.com, turkishcopper365.com, turkishaluminium365.com) Our members will be visible by adding their company and product information and they will singlehandedly manage their advertisement, promotion and committee works.
The websites we prepared will act as a live platform where foreign purchasers that wish to contact Turkish exporters can inspect products and companies in a nutshell. Purchasers will be able to contact our members and hold Zoom meetings by registering to our platform.
Long term vision of our project is to support our virtual committees with 365 platforms and enable our members to continue mutual meetings sustainably.
We will effectively promote our platform to buyers with both physical fair participations in the future and with advertisement and promotions and we aim to lay the foundation where foreign purchasers can reach and follow companies continuously without intermediaries.
In the next stage add-ons for organizing trade committees and online fairs will be added to our platform creating a virtual promotion medium that can be used by our members 365 days a year, strongly promoted and supported with advertisements in addition to physical competition instruments and frequently visited by purchasers (living).
Furthermore, as an extension of our 365 project, Trade365 digital transformation trainings will be offered free of charge to members participating the platform. Digital transformation trainings will include detailed information of efficient promotion of social media and online platforms.
