  • There really is a huge amount of information on the internet about pretty much anything you can possibly want to search for. It doesn't matter if you're looking for advice on dating or aoxyacetylene cutting tools, you can find what you're looking for. I think the biggest challenge can be deciphering that information into something you can use.

  • 11. ThomasNet Success Stories “ Due to ThomasNet’s exposure on search engines such as Google, BMW was able to find us and we are now working on 14 separate projects for them.” - Dave, VP of Marketing, Autronic Plastics, Inc., Injection Molded Plastics Micromold Products, Inc. - Yonkers, NY “ We put up the catalog about a year and a half ago. Sales in previous years had been fairly flat. After implementation sales rose 25% and are still growing. All other variables in our business have been equal. The catalog is the only thing we’ve done differently. It must be the reason.” "Our business sales have grown 500% in less than one year since we partnered with Thomas to rebuild our website and implement a brand awareness campaign."    Rebecca Ritter, President, Paws Off® Tools, LLC                                            "We use ThomasNet to provide us with website hosting and professional-looking web page design. On a regular basis, we are contacted by people who start out the conversation with 'I'm looking at your website...'"                                Richard L. Graham, Sales and Marketing Manager,                                          QED, Inc. Aircraft Instruments "Our Thomas rep did an outstanding job in the setup and design of our new website. We have had over fifty requests for quotes from all over the United States. We have sold and rented much more since the website has been up and running. The sales paid for the website in eight weeks."                                 Joe Peters, President, Peters Industrial Equipment
