Your business page at ProZ.com is the way you present your business to the world. It does not matter if the viewer is a potential vendor or a potential client, if it is incomplete, you likely will not achieve your desired results.
So...is your business page complete?
This is what a complete page looks like: you can see a logo, a slogan, a description, languages and industries you work in, services you offer, daily output, number of employees, Blue Board record, etc.
You might be wondering, why is it important?
To start with, by completing these fields, you can quote on jobs on behalf of your business as long as you meet the requirements set by the poster. Note that some jobs are restricted to paying members, so in cases like these, a Business Membership is required.
