MechSpot.com Launches On January 28, 2013!
January 23rd, 2013 by Jeff Rowe
Are you actively involved with or just plain interested in the mechanical design workflow from concept through manufacturing? If you are, then make MechSpot.com your electro-mechanical resource and community.
MechSpot.com is a new, innovative, and unique online community that is building a collaborative knowledge base for mechanical design and engineering.
Anyone is welcome to join the MechSpot.com community – students, schools, educators, professionals, companies, organizations, DIYers, hobbyists, and enthusiasts.
Receive the benefits of Mechspot membership including peer feedback, unlimited uploads and downloads, a growing creative collaborative community, streaming video, news, jobs, your own customizable portfolio, and much more!
Why should you join MechSpot.com?” Just some of the compelling reasons include:
Your unique URL will be www.mechspot.com/CompannyName (This is your login name – just like it is on Facebook and YouTube.). Mechspot will replace your YouTube and Facebook pages, because it’s just more effective for reaching your audience.
For example, YouTube only allows you to upload and present videos, and these video pages contain advertisements. Mechspot, on the other hand, has no advertisements and allows you to present a wide range of digital content. This ability lets you tell an entire story with videos that present company and product overviews, success stories, tutorials, etc. You can supplement your story with white papers, brochures, specifications, and other collateral material, show off your visualizations, and offer trial software for download.
As a second example, Facebook uses your page, which you pay them to advertise, to place their advertisements on, and of course, doesn’t offer any of the wide range of digital content placement that we do.
Both of these social sites, by their nature, have general audiences and are not targeted toward the mechanical engineering and manufacturing groups you want to reach.
MechSpot.com is absolutely free to sign up for and use. Everything on the site is 100% free to view and download.
MechSpot.com’s official launch date is January 28, 2013, but you can become a member right now. After the site launches, additional functionality will continually be added, including enhanced social connectivity, mobile apps (For Apple, Android, and Windows), and a member-customizable newsletter. And that’s only the beginning – MechSpot.com is a dynamic community that will grow along with you.
