Nancy and ThomasNet Provide a Good Value for Our Investment

I have had the pleasure of working with Nancy O’Brien for the past year. She took over our ThomasNet account and convinced me to renew our contract.  She explained the benefits, reviewed the past history, and helped improve our listings. Nancy took the time to listen to who we are and what we need, then tailored the offering to match.  She is very professional.

Since the contract was signed, she has suggested and implemented changes to help us further improve our performance.  She schedules routine visits and web meetings to review our account based on my schedule.  She is always prompt and prepared.  Because of her efforts, I feel that we are getting a good value for our investment in her service.

ThomasNet is our Most Effective Marketing and Sales Platform.

ThomasNet has been our most effective marketing and sales platform for years and much more this past year (2016). We saw an increase in quality RFQs and leads, as well as site traffic in general. Nancy O’Brien was instrumental in getting our listing refined and more effective, while also putting us on track to have our site remodeled and made mobile responsive in 2017. We are looking forward to many more years of growth and success with ThomasNet.

Thomas is our #1 salesman!!!!!

We have been a Thomas Customer for 20+ years.   Of the dozens of manufactures rep we deal with, Lisa GRIEGEL is by far the best.  She has given us guidance in developing many successful marketing programs. Through Lisa and Thomas we have established 100’s of accounts with one customer awarding us multiple million dollar contracts which alone paid for our advertising many times over.  Thomas is currently working on our new e-commerce enabled website which we think will deliver us even better results.  Thomas is our #1 salesman!!!!!

Thank You For Your Support!

We started advertising with Thomas Regional Directory back in the early 2000’s with the support of Robert Griegel but had transitioned away from ThomasNet in the past few years.  Then one of our vendors, Astro Machine, was having great success so I asked their president what kind of advertising they were utilizing and they said ThomasNet.  Turns out, they were being supported by Robert Griegel’s daughter, Lisa, who is now providing Enser the same outstanding guidance and support.

Lisa’s knowledge of social media, SEO and online marketing are vital with the constantly evolving online marketing trends and techniques.  Her ideas and suggestions have resulted in driving more traffic to our website and increased opportunities.

The overall result has been extremely effective and Lisa’s attention to detail is unparalleled, thank you for your support!

ThomasNet delivering calls and RFQs daily!

Hi Mike,

I am very thankful for the day Mike Chettle called on us!

Let me start from the beginning.  We are a small company in a VERY competitive business against MUCH larger companies.  When I first met Mike, our business was in trouble.  Our 2 year-old website was bringing in almost zero business and hadn’t for over a year.  No calls.  No RFQ’s.  Nothing.

We were just getting started creating a new website when Mike first called us.   The problem was we didn’t really know what we were doing and had no idea how our site was going to compete with dozens of competitors with much larger and more established websites.  Mike offered to help if we would consider advertising in ThomasNet when the site was done, to which we agreed.

Well, long story short, Mike devised a brilliant strategy using ThomasNet and his own unique keyword optimization skills to get our website found so much that within 3 months of launching our site, we were busier than during Hurricane Sandy!  We were literally getting calls and RFQ’s every day.  And now, 9 months after going live, we’re in the process of adding another boiler!

Thank you so much Mike and ThomasNet.  Our business will always be indebted to you and forever grateful!

I would highly recommend anyone to use ThomasNet and Mike!!

Hi Mike,

A Big Thank You to Mike Chettle and ThomasNet!!

About a year ago I was unhappy with the amount of activity I was getting from my website.  My concern was that our business was becoming too competitive to get noticed any more.  But since I started working with Mike Chettle and ThomasNet, the number and quality of RFQ’s we’ve received has increased dramatically.

Mike really took the time to understand my business and what it would take to drive more and higher quality traffic to our website.  The combination of Mike’s expertise in optimizing our website and leads coming from our ThomasNet listings has made a huge difference to my business success in acquiring new customers.

I would highly recommend anyone to use ThomasNet and Mike’s services if you’re looking to generate more leads and sales for your company.  They’re top notch!

Thanks again for all of your help.

Mike Chettle &ThomasNet produce NEW CUSTOMERS!

A huge thank you!

We have been working with Mike Chettle and ThomasNet for a couple months and the difference has been enlightening.  Mike has proven to be truly skilled at web marketing, and that combined with our prominence on ThomasNet, has really succeeded in getting our company noticed in the markets we want and need.

Since Mike started this venture with us, RFQ’s generated from our website have gone from one a month to about 20 a month.  Just the other day I had three RFQ’s come to my email within an hour, that is truly fantastic!  Most importantly, they are solid leads and exactly what we are looking for.  We have already acquired three substantial new customers and couldn’t have done it without Mike and ThomasNet.  I would highly recommend Mike’s expertise to anyone who needs to get more new customers.


Thank you so much!

We trusted Kit and ThomasNet to do a great job


Please share our success with others.

“We met with Kit Noller from ThomasNet in late January 2015 after we determined that our Website was in desperate need of an overhaul.  By early May we launched our newly developed website and we are very pleased with the result.  The design is professional, the functionality is very user friendly, and the complete breadth of our products and their specifications are now published in an interactive format perfectly suited for the Internet.

We quickly recognized that Kit is knowledgeable when it comes to Internet marketing for industrial manufacturers like Ogontz and we felt confident putting our trust in him to guide the project.  Kit’s expertise helped guide our decisions and ensured that tasks were completed on time.  The importance of the Internet has grown significantly in our market and it’s nice to have a reliable and trustworthy resource that we know is always looking out for our best interests.  In just 3 short months we went from having an inadequate web presence to having an industry leading, mobile friendly website that we feel gives us a competitive advantage Online.”

We Have Seen a Huge Increase in New Customers

As a small business that makes filters for the government, aerospace and marine applications for over 40 years, we would wait for the phone to ring and rely on repeat business for sales.  We never had a marketing strategy or plan for the future.  Then about 5 years ago we were starting to see a slow down with the government that was affecting our sales and we knew we had to do something to find new customers.

Kit Noller with ThomasNet stopped in our office one day and helped us create a marketing plan using keywords and our website.  In the past two years we have seen a huge increase in neew customers and new products.

When we compare the investment of hiring a sales person to ThomasNet, ThomasNet wins.
