We just Launched Our Online Question & Answer Community.
Impacted by recent global challenges, online education and training are going through a major transformation. VacuumFurnaces.com is capitalizing on this trend with a knowledge networking paradigm especially conceived for our times. Our online Q&A community offers a unique online education and networking tool that will be of great benefit to vacuum heat-treating operators and practitioners, small and medium-sized businesses, organizations, and the vacuum heat-treating industry at large.
We are Reaching Out to You!
We are reaching out to you because we value you as a vacuum furnace end-user, equipment and service supplier, commercial and captive heat treater, industry professional, and future member of VacuumFurnaces.com. We sincerely appreciate your helping us become a successful online member-supported question-and-answer community and wish to thank you for all your efforts by inviting you to early access the VacuumFurnaces.com community.
What’s Truly Unique About our Question-Answering Platform?
User-generated content (UGC) is the next frontier in content marketing, which is becoming an overcrowded and competitive space. Question-answering is the new paradigm that sits at the intersection of knowledge networking (relationship marketing), search marketing, and user-generated content marketing.
Question-answering supports content that is practical, bite-sized, and serves a critical function. It operates within a social-professional context; fusing know-how, support, and marketing elements to create a thriving, dedicated, and interactive community of like-minded professionals sharing the same goals and aspirations.
A Q&A community for vacuum furnace end-users (operations, training, maintenance, and support), vacuum furnace equipment and service suppliers, education, industry, and trade.
VacuumFurnaces.com is where a bond quickly forms between end-users seeking answers to time-sensitive issues they are facing and contributing members who possess the answers. While initially aimed at providing useful answers to question askers, in time, with the help of highly relevant user-generated questions, and a large repository of increasingly valuable answers prominently ranked on search engines, VacuumFurnaces.com will see dramatic organic traffic growth from search engines delivering an ever-increasing, captive audience to communicate to and engage with.
Our points rewards and incentives make our community fun to join, allowing members to show off their expertise while climbing the points ladder to fare prominently in our community.
For better or worse, people are more likely to do things when they will get something in return; we use this fact to our advantage. Knowing members are more likely to engage with the platform, we make participating more enjoyable for them with points rewards. Throughout and after the “Answer it Forward!” challenge, members earn points by answering as many questions as possible, working towards ranking in the top spots all the while increasing their visibility. Points rewards are our simple competition that will make writing answers more fun and exciting by instilling a healthy contest among members while providing a great way to ensure that they enjoy themselves in a professional and work-oriented context.

The “Answer it Forward! challenge is the perfect platform for members to establish themselves as experts in their respective fields by providing authoritative answers to hundreds of pre-populated questions in key categories. So, for example, if you supply a certain product, you can answer as many “Answer it Forward!” questions in your category and become instantly recognized for your expertise.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Blog Posts: An Engaging New Feature
Sales and marketing materials have traditionally been used to quickly communicate to potential customers the key benefits of products, equipment, or services. Our FAQ Blog goes one step further; it focuses our members’ attention on questions and answers related to the servicing, maintaining, troubleshooting, and repairing of any product or piece of equipment.
As a pre-launch corporate member, you will have early access to our members-only FAQ Blog where you can post answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions on how to service, maintain, troubleshoot, and repair your products and equipment. Providing your peers with the most important tips on what to do before or after something goes wrong will help you grow your brand and create meaningful relationships over time.
For example, no matter how complex your support cases are, they can be repackaged and repurposed as FAQs, providing you with an opportunity to deliver a highly targeted audience to your site via links embedded in the FAQ answers. But most importantly it will help to position your brand as a thought leader and dynamic customer-centric brand.
Corporate members can publish as many FAQ Blog posts as they wish. The only requirement is that the titles of the FAQ posts must be formatted as questions as they will be indexed and searched along with all the regular questions in the Q&A Directory. So hurry before your competitors beat you to it.
