Advanced Solutions for Manufacturing Websites

At Foremost Media, we understand that your manufacturing website needs to do so much more than just look pretty. In fact, we have extensive experience working with a wide variety of different types of manufacturers, including some of the most widely recognized names in manufacturing today.

It's not uncommon to find us at trade shows across the country visiting our clients and learning more about their respective industries. We have worked with and understand the needs of manufacturers that sell through distribution as well as direct. We can help guide you through the challenges of selling direct online or setting up ordering systems for your distributor network. Let us help navigate you to website solutions that allow you to cut cost and increase profitability.

Below are just a few of the tools and functionality we have developed over the years for our manufacturing client base:

Distributor Locator Tools

A database or locator tool of retail locations or distributors placed on your website can help eliminate phone calls and increase sales from your dealers and distributors. Find out more about dealer locator tools from Foremost Media. A store locator helps site visitors quickly find nearby locations that sell your products. This locator requires the end users to select the product and enter their zip code. The locator will return the nearest locations that sell the product. The locator is updated easily via an excel upload in the admin section of the website.

Lead Management Tools

The Lead Management tool is designed specifically for manufacturing companies that sell through distribution. Our software can automatically route leads from your website directly to your regional sales managers, who in turn can funnel the leads to a specific distributor in their region. However, we don't stop there. Our system can also help your sales team follow up with those leads, ensuring that your distributors are taking advantage of the leads you are sending them. An easy to use dashboard allows you to review lead statuses and even get a feel for how many leads are being generated and closed from your last trade show.
