A detailed step-by-step guide for suppliers on how to sign-up and create a company profile on Flock.
Not Yet on Flock? How to Sign-up as a Supplier & Add Your Company!
If your company is not yet listed on Flock, you can easily add it – for free.
Our goal is to create a complete catalogue of suppliers at every airport. We never charge companies just for being published!
Please note that the sign-up process is extremely simple & quick. It should not take more than a couple of minutes to be completed.
This guide, however, seems long as it is a step-by-step walk-through explaining every single detail.
It is a very easy process. Simply go to the main location (airport) your company operates in, click on the “Add Company” button as highlighted in the picture below.
Alternatively, you can just “Create Account”, and you will go through the same steps.
In case you haven’t signed up – you will be asked to do so.
This window will pop up on your screen and ask you to Log In if you have a Flock account.
Alternatively, you can Create Account in case you do not have one already.
Most probably, you will be clicking on Create Account. Now enter your email & password, and activate your account through the confirmation link sent to your email address – check spam folders on the rare occasion it does not end up in your inbox.
After activating your account by following the confirmation link sent to your email address – you will be taken to the Personal Profile page. In this page, you will be asked to share simple details about yourself with the Flock community – including Full Name (required), Profile Photo (optional) & an About section (optional).
You are encouraged to add all your details – however, if you do not wish to do so you can just write your full name and move on to the next step.
This simple form will require you to enter your company name and company website. Your company name will be the name shown to everyone on Flock – so we suggest being careful that you do not make any spelling mistakes in this section.
The company website field is used to verify your company and make sure that your business is the only one using that website URL – therefore preventing spam and duplication of information.
It is extremely important that you DO NOT skip this step if you intend on creating a company profile and publishing your company on Flock.
Note: In case you use a URL that matches a company already listed on Flock – you will end up on the below page.
If someone else from your organization has claimed your company profile on Flock – you will be asked to “Request Access” from that user, as is the case in the image below.
Otherwise, if your company is already listed on Flock – you will be asked to just simply “Claim Profile”.
In case your company was not listed on Flock already – you will be taken to the “Create Business Profile” page. This can be seen in the image below.
On this page, you will be required to add all your company information. We strongly encourage you to make sure that all the information you enter is up-to-date.
Make sure you do not leave your description field empty – and add some information about your company in there.
Upload your company logo – and most importantly, make sure you add in all your important contact details.
Now you are able to enter the locations that you serve and all the services which you provide in those locations.
This is an extremely important step as it maximizes the exposure that you get on the Flock platform.
Adding all the locations you provide services in makes sure your company shows up on more airport pages. Choose a location and then add the contact details for each specific location.
Adding all the services that you provide ensures that users are more likely to contact you.
Users will know exactly what services you have to offer. You can also do this based on each specific location.
Note that you can enter your full details including all locations & services later on through your admin panel – thus you do not have to add all of them at this stage.
The final step is just simply adding what your role or job title is within this company. Afterwards, simply click “Publish Profile” and you are good to go!
Your company will be published on the Flock platform and you will be taken to your business admin panel!
Note: In case you do not have a company email – or one that matches your URL and instead, you are using general email service providers such as @gmail and so on – you will need to provide a scan of company registration documents in order to get verified from the Flock team.
If you are using a company email – you are still encouraged to provide a scan of company registration documents. Regardless, you will most probably be verified.
I would strongly suggest you read this blog post on the steps you can take to perfect your company profile! The four main steps you must take to have the complete and perfect Flock profile. It is also a quick guide on how to use your business admin panel!
