New upgrades, presence on App, for Buyer's Guide

The IHRSA Buyer’s Guide is a one-stop resource for the fitness industry. It allows club owners, fitness professionals and or anyone looking for information on businesses in the industry a simple way to search, learn about options and gather information.

It is like giant trade show at your fingertips.

Recent upgrades for enhanced listings include the ability to embed a video and having your Twitter feed on your Buyer’s Guide page. Other features for the enhanced listing are a detailed description, links to company e-mail address and website, company address and map, contact information and social media links for Facebook and Twitter.

A third upgrade is the Buyer’s Guide is on the IHRSA App. It makes it easier for attendees of IHRSA events to find your company and products, as well as all of the same features as the website. 

Another level is product profiles. In this area, which is streamed across the top of and is in addition to a listing, there are product descriptions, another video, larger photo, and a spot to upload a PDF. 

Standard listings have company address, phone number and website.  

Two user-friendly search capabilities – keyword-driven and category-specific - allow operators to find what they are looking for easily. Both methods produce the most relevant results on the Web because the results service a narrow niche of Internet users, enhancing the SEO (search engine optimization).

Enhanced listings are now up for renewal as they will expire on May 1, 2013. To maintain your listing on the Guide, renew by visiting Log in to your account and click "Renew Listing" for 2013/2014. To upgrade from a standard listing to an enhanced listing on the Guide, click "Renew Listing" and then "Renew an enhanced listing for 2013/2014".

All listings run May 1, 2013 through April 30, 2014.
