VCG will review requests to establish PRO Network connections from your existing list of sign vendors so that your users will be able to easily identify sign vendors in a search result that have been pre-approved to work with your company.
Once the connections have been made in PRO, VCG will send out the following email notifications:
Email Send 1 - Email notification to established connections
VCG will send an email on your behalf to all participating PRO sign vendors that have been connected to your company in PRO. The email will inform the vendor that they are now part of your PRO Network, and that, unless they elect to decline the connection, there's nothing they need to do (we do, however, always remind the vendor to ensure that their PRO profile is complete and accurate). Here's a sample of the email content (links removed):
We're sending this notification on behalf of [PRO company].
[PRO company] has indicated that [PRO vendor] is a member of their vendor network, and has requested that we make the Network Connection with your company in their SignsearchPRO account (www.signsearchpro.com). By connecting with [PRO company] your company receives preferential placement when [PRO company] performs a search in SignsearchPRO for a sign company in your area.
You can read more about PRO Network Connections here.
Remember, there's NO COST to be found in PRO but now would be a great time to remind you to ensure that your PRO profile is verified and up to date. We've made it easy for SignsearchPRO buyers to filter their search for a more accurate result. By selecting to see only "PRO Verified Vendors", users of SignsearchPRO can ensure that they're only presented with those vendors that have completed their PRO company profile. Make sure that includes you!
Completing your PRO profile is easy and it's fast... we just timed ourselves and providing "the basics" took less than a minute. No joke.
Verify your PRO profile today!
Please note that there's nothing that you need to do to be part of [PRO company's] PRO Network - the connection has already been made. If, on the other hand, you don't wish to be part of their Network of vendors, please:
- login to your account at www.myvcg.com
- click on the SIGNSEARCHPRO tab from the top navigation
- select the PRO NETWORK tab
- simply click the "x" icon next to [PRO company] in your list of Network Connections and confirm that you wish to delete this Network Connection

Notification to unmatched connections
Vendor records that we were not able to match to participating PRO vendors will not be notified.
Email Send 2 - Email notification to potential vendors to invite them to connect with you
VCG may, at its discretion, send an email on your behalf to all PRO sign vendors that you are not connected with to invite them to apply to be part of your PRO Network. The email will briefly introduce your company and provide a link to their PRO account where they will be able to login to their PRO account to make their online request to join your network. You'll be able to view and accept or deny all requests via your PRO instance.
