Basic Listing in the database

Just being in the database is a powerful marketing tool. And a basic listing is free of charge if filed with a complete application following our guidelines. For more information about adding equipment to the database click here.

Product Marketing Page

While all qualifying equipment is accepted to the manufacturers can opt to substantively increase the depth of information available to visitors.

If they do not have a PMP the comparison engine will not have the search criteria data to process so the equipment will be excluded from that feature.

Newsletter 'edition' sponsorships, subcategory sponsorships and expanded listings are among the marketing opportunities in the newsletters.

Banner Advertising

Banner advertising will be served on search results pages with offers related to the search. Also, search and competitor specific ads will be served on blank product marketing pages where manufacturers opted out of promoting their own product with a PMP.
