How To Use Globial

Since, we launched Globial last week, we have received a number of questions from our users as to how Globial works exactly. One of our writers Sunny Mui put up a very informative response as to how Globial works, what you can use it for, and what are some benefits of using Globial. Here, are some of the things you need to know about Globial.

The three main things you can do on Globial are:

-Find new business opportunities

-Learn, ask, and answer questions

-Network with other businesses

You can upload product pictures to your Profile, when you click on Products, which is on the gray tool bar next to Board and Info. Your Board shows all the updates and news from your Trade Partners, it is also where you can talk to another trade partner by posting on their board. You can find and add other businesses as Trade Partners in Search, and you can narrow down potential trade partners by industry/category.

If you’re curious about each company, you can go through their profile information before adding them as a trade partner. You can also click to Follow them first, which is the middle icon, next to Msg, before adding them as a trade partner. This lets you watch their activity and what they do on Globial before adding them as a Trade Partner. You can also see who their trade partners are and ask those trade partners questions on whether the company is trustworthy or not.

In the Tradebook, you can ask questions about business and economics, by clicking on the Questions tab and typing in a question. You can also answer questions to show your knowledge and expertise. When you answer questions well, it helps show people that you are trustworthy, because the questions you answer will automatically pop up on your board. In addition to asking questions, you can also look up trade related terms in the Trade Dictionary. We have cataloged thousands of terms, specifically related to business or trade, that business owners might have questions about.

You can also post buying leads for things you wish to purchase. You can do this by clicking on Home, and then clicking on the Post a Buying Lead Icon, this will let all your trade partners know what you are looking for. You can search for buying leads, by clicking on Tradebook, and then clicking on the Buying Leads tab in the gray tool bar. You can also respond to buying leads for things that you are trying to sell.

Remember that all of this activity is visible on your profile and shows up in the News Stream of your trade partners. You have a public reputation on Globial, if you do things that don’t foster trust, you won’t be seen as trustworthy. If you answer questions, do good business with trade partners, interact and engage with other businesses regularly, post information, etc then you’ll be rewarded.

If you would like to invite your friends or other businesses to join you on Globial, click on Add Connections, which is on the far right in the gray toolbar. This will bring down a list of email services, by clicking on one of these and entering in you login info, you can import your list of of contacts from that email service. This will automatically send out an email to each of your contacts, asking them if they would like to join you on Globial.

We are always planning to add more content to our website, as well as making more new features available in the future, so that your Globial experience is always a pleasurable. Expect there to be more How Tos, as we put up more features. If you ever have any questions about Globial. Feel free to contact us at
