Hi,
I have just registered with this forum site to discuss on Biological terms. It is most important part for human being.

Enjoy!

I thought you are some sort of genomic company. When I google it I found out:

I guess you have some really serious unsettle issues....

Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

Hello, GBS or GPS, what is the relevance between your business and this forum. Do you have some biology background or biotech related background? I'm a biochemist and joined this forum early this month. Trying to promote business on this site is hard, because people here are most graduate students, postdocs. PIs and experienced biologists don't feel a need to use this forum.

Clearly, most graduate students, postdocs do not make purchase decision or other business decisions. I just start trying post protocols on this forum trying to promote my reagents distributing business. It looks it didn't work well. Any good advice?

You are right that most people here are students/post docs. But not all...

Anyway, you can not expect to "do business" here like you were selling a videogame on ebay.
You work with very specialised products, expensive materials.. and you do this in a very closed world. Products that are used are products that have been around for a while.. some major names are allready established and people keep using the ones they know...
Products, like the one you sell, are products with a reputation and this reputation took time to grow.
Your products will need to build that reputation too.. and you cant expect that this will happen on a forum.
Most people dont check a forum to find a new product. THey ask their peers in the lab or other researchgroups or they find information in papers...
And with that comes the fact that many researchers are a bit "autistic" when it comes to products: they buy the same ones for years because it works.. and it will take a lot of time and effort to convince them you have a better product... Most researchers (I think) dont even believe companies or advertisments.. no they check out what others tell them and if others tell them they found another product that is better, well then they might concider it.. but only after checking it with 19 (just a random number) other researchers.

Also: keep in mind you are entering a field that is allready conquered by some big multidollar companies that often offer free samples to test... and its hard to go fight thise companies.


Just one, maybe weird remark, you say that the PIs and the professors are the ones making the decision? Yeah, maybe they sign the paper for the order, but here comes to tricky part: often the post docs and even the "students" are the ones deciding which brand they buy...
Often the younger ones are the ones that "dare" to change or listen to others.. Or those are he ones that are prepared to go find other examples of products..

The PI or professor that has been working with the same product for 30 years .. he wont change that quick..

A product like yours sells itself by promoting it in real life.. at conventions, research meetings, mentionin it in papers etc.. the internet itself plays only a very very very small role.
Keep in mind you are not selling easy, cheap and well known products.
You are selling products for specialised people and specailised people rarely buy their stuff on the net if they dont know the product.
And they dont get to know a product by just looking at the internet, no, they learn it from others....

Well this is just my opinion.
Maybe others see it differently.

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.
