PMMI ProSource

QUESTIONS ABOUT PMMI PROSOURCE, HOW IT WORKS AND HOW TO FILL OUT YOUR COMPANY INFORMATION? REGISTER FOR AN INTERACTIVE WEBINAR ON TUESDAY, JUNE 22 AT NOON EST HERE.

PMMI ProSource is the most reliable and complete online directory of packaging and processing technology suppliers in North America. Designed from the buyer’s perspective, our streamlined digital tool connects packaging and processing buyers to the machinery, materials and services you sell quickly, driving them to your site from ours.

PMMI ProSource harnesses search engine traffic for customers searching for your product category, driving traffic back to your website and making it easier for new customers to find you.

The directory’s search and filter tools will help buyers narrow focus and find the solutions you offer more easily. Visual search results will help end users determine suppliers of interest quickly.

Note: We listened to the industry. Designed based on direct input from customers, the functionality of PMMI ProSource ensures the best user experience and encourages consistent usage of the site.  

PMMI ProSource is a brand new kind of directory for PMMI, being built from the ground up.

PMMI’s directory categories have been completely revamped and updated for the new platform, based on input from end user experts in packaging. For buyers, standardized categories make it easier and less confusing to find the machinery, materials and supplies they need. Plain-language filters and graphic features will make it easy for novice users who may not be well-versed in the packaging technology terms to find what they need.

Our new category curation and supplier validation process will help customers cut through the clutter, so that irrelevant suppliers from other categories do not appear alongside your listings, facilitating a more user-friendly experience for connection with your machinery buyers.

First, identify a key contact at your company for PMMI ProSource (see below for how to submit), who will then work with us to make sure your listing and profile are up to date. PMMI is now actively collecting member company data to ensure your customers have the most up-to-date information. To update your listing, visit pmmi.force.com/prosource using login credentials emailed to all existing ProSource contacts the week of June 14. (email [email protected] if you need help finding the credentials).  Find the categories where your company fits under our streamlined list by visiting this PMMI ProSource category reference site.

 

COMPLETE YOUR PROFILE

Before PMMI ProSource launches later this year, you can help us build its search engine optimization (SEO) now to train search engines to associate PMMI ProSource with your company’s products. Here’s what you can do now:

  1. Visit our preliminary site today.
    We have launched an early version of the site at pmmiprosource.org that does not have any category listings yet. Please go there and peruse the articles to find one (or more) that you think best suits your company.
     
  2. Link to an existing PMMI ProSource article on your site.
    Once you’ve found an article related to what your company does, link to it on your website to help build SEO.
     
  3. Tell us you linked to ProSource.
    After you link to our site, tell us you did by sending your URL to [email protected]. In exchange, we will list your company at the end of the article. When the new directory launches later this year, we’ll turn that mention into a link to your profile, so when someone comes in from a Google search and lands on that article, your company will appear in a listing at the end. 

Getting your listing at the end of articles is open to all PMMI members now, and those who respond will be listed prominently at the end of the article on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

You can also contribute ideas for article topics. What are the FAQs you get at your company about packaging trends? Articles addressing common problems in our industry will draw traffic from search engines like Google. The more traffic we get, the more your products get in the spotlight and drive customers back to you for contact from customers.
