How does Dezignwall help my business?
I was recently out to dinner with a few of my design industry friends and was asked the question, “how are designers and manufacturers using Dezignwall?”
I thought it was a great question. So, I wanted to share it with all of you.
Dezignwall is a FREE Social Platform for the Design Industry
We are a business-to-business professional network. We combine features the design industry already loves from platforms like Instagram, Linkedin, Pinterest, Facebook, SnapChat and online product directories.
Dezignwall functions as a virtual tradeshow, 24/7 and global.
We are FREE for both manufacturers/suppliers and designers/specifiers.
We have no competition. This is a home for bloggers, online directories, product manufacturers, local craftsmen, artists, staggers, interior/exterior designers, architects and procurement firms. If you are wondering, “is this for me?”, the answer is “YES!”
Why a virtual tradeshow?
I was recently at Highpoint Market and HD Expo. Looking around there were designers looking for product (that’s a given). But there was much more going on.
Tradeshows are social.
Designers were catching up with friends, watching panel discussions, learning about products and how they were made.
At night, we were out having fun at all of the various industry parties. Creating memories and building relationships.
Dezignwall is a social platform because the design industry is a community. And we are as social as they come!
Manufacturers and Designers – Tell Your Story!
The world wants to know and relate to YOU.
Humans are relational creatures. We all want to know “the story”.
Dezignwall helps share you “story” several ways:
Your about section on your profile
Featured Member Articles
Multiple Views – display images that share your project or products story
Coming soon – Dezignwall Stories – A visual way to share the How and Why behind your products and projects
If you are not sharing your story, you are missing out on growth opportunity.
How are manufacturers using Dezignwall?
For manufacturers, a Dezignwall profile is like a FREE tradeshow booth, with unlimited square footage.
Instead of only showcasing a few products, you are able to upload all of your products and installation images. Using out new Batch Upload (Beta) process, you can easily upload your entire catalog in batches.
There is no "pay for placement". You simply upload your images and designers can browse your products.
This provides designers with the diversity they need to create projects that are unique.
Dezignwall is made for face-to-face engagement
Currently, companies supply their sales reps with printed product catalogs and business cards.
This is a horrible way of selling your products.
With Dezignwall, your images are organized into Digital Catalogs. And just like other social platforms, we offer analytics.
This would be like knowing your customer really likes that image on page 27 of your catalog. Then being able to follow up with them instantly.
Why does that matter?
More efficient sales reps - Your sales people would love to sell more product and make more money.
Dezignwall gives them the ability to see which clients are interested and which are not. Then lets them follow-up, instantly.
If you haven’t done so already, set your sales reps up with Digital Business Cards.

How are Designers using Dezignwall?
Are you already finding products on Instagram and online product directories?
Then you know that on Instagram, you can’t click through to the products themselves. And with Online directories, you are finding the same products that pay to be on all of the other directories.
But finding product is only one aspect of what you need.
Are you using Pinterest to organize images and share with clients?
Then you know that sharing your Pin Boards with clients is like giving them direct access to your sources. And if you are on Houzz, then you know that every client is now and #Fashionista
Dezignwall’s pin and Your Wall feature is for B2B use. This is for collaborating with our colleagues, vendors and contractors. (Stay tuned for our upcoming “Virtual White Board” feature)
Showcase your projects!Have you discovered Dezignwall’s new Multiple Views feature? This lets you display up to 12 images of your completed and before & after projects.
Why showcase your projects on Dezignwall?
Dezignwall serves as a sharable digital portfolio. Simply create a unique catalog for your projects and share them with clients using your Dezignwall Digital Business Cards (Upgrade for free for 1 entire year using pass code: ORIGINAL).
Sharing your Digital Business Card means that your clients can easily refer you more work by sharing your digital contact info with friends, family and colleagues.
Designer’s rely on referrals. Why not make it easier to let your clients refer you business?
Dezignwall is a community
If you are posting to Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, you are sharing in the wrong crowd. Social media was designed for my teenaged kids. Not business.
If you’ve read the news lately, Snapchat went public with a first day IPO of $38-Billion dollars. But by the next week, their stock price dropped below $17 a share. Why? Because it was made for children. But now that companies are advertising on Snapchat, the kids are gone. Now, we are all wondering if Snapchat will survive within the next few years.
Dezignwall is for design professionals, worldwide.
Joining Dezignwall is building a community. We are growing and we are constantly working on new features to connect the design industry globally.
If you have been on the fence about posting to Dezignwall, today’s the day to start posting. Dezignwall was made for you.
