As uShip passes the major milestone of 250,000 stories left by customers, its a good opportunity to take stock of the importance of your uShip profile page and how it's working to earn you jobs on uShip, even when you're not even quoting.
Unlike some other websites, uShip doesn't hide your company name or restrict customers from reading about you before they choose a quote. In fact in our Safe Shipping Guide we encourage customers to visit the profile pages of Transporters and Couriers whose quotes they are considering to learn more about them.
Your profile page is linked to every job that you've quoted on. And our new Delivery Price Estimator means that customers you haven't even quoted for may be reading about you and considering asking you to quote for their job.
Your profile page is your venue to sell your company. And research by uShip has shown that Transporters with better profile pages repeatedly secure high match prices.
Also remember that we work hard to ensure that your uShip page is indexed on google. Some of our most visited pages across the entire website are individual transporter's profile pages. So just think that someone that's not even got as far as listing a job on uShip could already be considering asking you to quote.
Through its proprietary feedback and reviews system, uShip just passed 250,000 unbiased transporter reviews and stories by its customers, helping over a million people make informed decisions around finding experienced and trustworthy moving companies. Nearly 70 percent of uShip customers voluntarily leave feedback after their job is complete, and satisfaction levels consistently hover at 98 percent, well above industry norms. In fact, studies show people truly count on others’ reviews: eight in 10 people say their purchase decisions have been influenced by other customer reviews (Deloitte).
So take 5 minutes to revist that profile page and to make it as useful and relevant as it can be. It's your chance to sell yourself, don't leave it blank and sell yourself short.
