Nancy and ThomasNet Provide a Good Value for Our Investment

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: admin, March 17, 2017 @ 3:17 pm

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.

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!

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: admin, July 27, 2016 @ 8:25 pm

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!

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.

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: admin, March 24, 2016 @ 4:37 pm

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!

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

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: , , — by: Susan Niggel, May 15, 2015 @ 6:45 pm

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.

From working with and its representatives, I really felt like they actually “cared” about making sure we were happy with their services, which is sometimes rare to find today.  Our representative, Eddie Goldstein, routinely reached out to me along the way to help answer any questions and to make sure I was utilizing the site to its full potential.  They have a very comprehensive site that offers quality content and valuable data to a business and its backed by individuals that know what they’re doing and why they are doing it.  Everyone I’ve spoken to along the way has been helpful and pleasant and overall it’s been a positive experience for our company.

ThomasNet Gives Us our Money’s Worth

After trying many marketing options Motson Graphics has spent over 90% of it’s advertising budget with ThomasNet for the last 10 years.  We feel we have gotten our money’s worth.

As a small manufacturer filling a very small and specific niche our ability to be found by internet search is critical.  ThomasNet has clearly done an outstanding job of ‘search engine optimization’ making sure their clients are the first ones found.  Whenever we receive calls from new customers we ask where they found us.  The answer is almost always “The Internet.”  A little more digging shows it is always through ThomasNet.

Because of Eddie we regularly receive qualified sales inquiries and generate new customers

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: bgordon, April 14, 2014 @ 1:54 pm

In the past, we only utilized the free listings on ThomasNet and this rarely generated new contacts.

Two years ago, we started working with Eddie and ThomasNet, to try to improve our ThomasNet & Internet exposure with great success.

Eddie is very knowledgeable about ThomasNet and offered constructive ideas for improving our business listings.  Last year, she suggested that we use ThomasNet Websolutions to revamp our website, and to improve our rankings on the net.

We now receive qualified sales inquiries on a regular basis, and have definitely generated new customers and increased our sales.

Through the last 12 years we have come to trust Dan Porter’s expertise and professionalism implicitly. He helped us expand a small, regionally based, advertising program to a comprehensive national campaign that complements our other marketing efforts. The campaign with ThomasNet has become significantly more effective through the years without a commensurate increase in spending. We assign all of the credit for the increase in efficacy to Dan’s in depth knowledge of our company, and ability to use the significant resources at his disposal to effectively tailor the best program he could for our budget. We intend to continue to work with Dan, and ThomasNet, as valued partners and trusted advisors for many years to come.

ThomasNet drives targeted customer traffic to our business

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: sfiler, March 10, 2014 @ 9:16 pm

NSI (Neal Systems Inc.) originally starting working with ThomasNet years ago as we sensed that the transition from the old Thomas Registers (which we had quite a bit of success with!) had occurred completely.  While we noticed some additional traffic to our website through their page marketing, what really made them gold was when they started helping us actually redo our website.  What we asked them to do initially (our ideas) compared what they actually came back with was pretty amazing.  We’ve continued to work with them this past year continually driving our website ever forward, and our customers and suppliers have really taken notice.

This past month, I was at a meeting of the best representatives in the US for one of our suppliers, and one of the other very successful reps asked us who helped us put our website together.  When I told them the ThomasNet guys, another of the reps piped up, “I use them too!  They are the only way to go!  They made my site look amazing.”  So not only do they help drive target customer traffic to our business, they help us look amazing when the customers actually “arrive”.  And THAT is worth more than we can quantify.

We have advertised in the Thomas Register and Thomas net since 1998. We find that we received many new and repeat customers. In the beginning we used to keep track of the new customers with different 800 #’s that they used to call in. Now with Webtraxs it is a breeze.

Our Thomas Rep Chris Thomas has helped us get the most of our advertising dollar. Our experience is that business people and purchasing agents go right to the Thomas register.

We at Hydrasearch would like to thank you and your team for your outstanding job on building our websites.  We were very impressed with the accuracy and the amount of time it took ThomasNet to build not 1, but 2 websites with very little information supplied by us.

We receive compliments from our customers daily and it has helped our customers have a much better understanding of our product line.  These websites are our outside sales people.  The websites created deliver both the look and message we are trying to send.

We would also like to thank your staff at ThomasNet.  We worked closely with many people at ThomasNet in the short time to create these sites.  Your staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and willing to help us with any problem we have or my encounter.

Kit, I would personally like to thank you for all our help.  You were on top of  the project during the building of these sites you were very quick to react.  Even after the project was complete,  you still meet us to address our needs and concerns.

Our experience with Kit Noller and the entire Thomas Net group has been an absolute pleasure.  Since we launched our first website we have been very apprehensive about the future of how it would look and operate, as well as how it was received.  Kit came to our facility and very quickly put us at ease with his confidence that Thomas Net would not only meet, but exceed our expectations. He is very knowledgeable about the products, services, and processes Thomas Net offers.  He communicated very effectively through out the entire process. The entire staff is extremely professional, courteous, and prompt.  The cost of the services performed were right in line with the quality of craftsmanship and support we have received.  I would highly recommend ThomasNet to any organization that is looking to lead their intended markets through a professional, user friendly website.

We have been a customer with Thomas Register (now ThomasNet) for over 20 years. In that time, sales reps have come and gone, but none have been as thorough as Dan Porter (our rep for the past 12 years).  He brings so much to the table each time we meet with him. His knowledge of Thomas and the internet help us make good decisions regarding our advertising and our overall presence on the web. We feel that one of the reasons why we get such good coverage on the Internet is directly related to our adverting on the ThomasNet. For this reason alone, we feel our money is well spent with Thomas.

We’ve been working with ThomasNet and B2B Design & Development for well over 10 years and have been very happy with their performance and support.  We started with the Thomasnet directory and needed to expand our online presence.  Working with David Gural of B2B we developed a website several years ago, and most recently, incorporated a product catalog and audit program.  David and his staff have been very easy to work with; experienced, extremely knowledgeable and responsive. 

During development, we often needed guidance in accomplishing our vision. David’s knowledge of website design and development, SEO and online marketing were invaluable and up-to-date with the constantly evolving online marketing trends and techniques.  His ideas and spot-on suggestions have resulted in our professional and well-thought web presence, informative to our customer and users and with room to grow.  Both David and his staff are familiar with the needs and workings of corporations like ours, and responded intuitively to our ideas.  They took the initiative to work with our web content, formatting and organizing it to best achieve our goals.

The overall result has been exceptionally successful and productive, resulting in direct communication with both potential and existing customers, and useful online tools to ease our daily workload.

ThomasNet Results are Impressive

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: GDow, January 17, 2014 @ 6:59 pm

We are entering our second year with ThomasNet used to market our hardware on-line business.  We found our results to be good in the first year and are looking forward to a much more effective program in year two.  We have increased the size of the program and also have had the years experience to measure results on a listing by listing basis to determine where our listing points are best used.

The most impressive thing about our experience is the quality and size of the companies and institutions coming to our site. We made a number of multiple-sale new customers this year and attribute a good portion to ThomasNet.

We have been working with David Gural & ThomasNet for over 20 years.  Initially, we  used the Thomas Register books, then expanded into the CatNav program and recently they created an entirely new website for us.  David has also created several print ads and brochures for us.  We have always been very pleased with the people, service & the quality of their products.  Just recently we launched our new website and are thrilled with it.  All the people involved in putting this site together were great to work with.  We are expecting a considerable increase in our ranking, sales and activity from our new site.  We definitely have developed a trust level with David and the people with whom he connects us.

Thanks for all of your help.  We are really excite about our new website and the increased activity we are hoping it generates for us !

The Thomasnet program has really helped our company (Dyer Gage)

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: Mike Scott, January 15, 2014 @ 9:03 pm

The Thomasnet program has really helped our company stay current with our web presence.  With normal business pulling us in every direction, it would be impossible for us to maintain a strong web position on our own.  I enjoy meeting with Dan once a year to discuss the various options that Thomasnet has to offer.  I view him as a strategic business partner since he keeps us informed on all the new trends and programs that influence the internet.  Thomasnet has helped put us in a position to succeed.  We know that we are a top-notch company… the world knows too.

As a 94 year old family company we have been with Thomas a long time and I have worked with David Gural for over 20 years.  Running a company I get caught up in the day to day, and David & ThomaNet have always been able to suggest and direct our company to current marketing strategies that keep us relevant and in front of our market space, which has become more and more difficult with today’s technologies.  I’ve used other vendors and found that David knows the industrial space like no one else. I always come back to him for advice and planning.

I have been working with David Gural for many years even going back to the days of printed Thomas Register.  Through the years David has helped to guide our transition from print to electronic media and then even further into the world of full blown electronic catalogs with complete CAD capabilities.  David assists us in every way necessary, getting us the most “bang for the buck” at every turn.   We look forward to working with David into the future.

In the 20+ years my client has had a program with (formerly Thomas Register), I’ve looked at other directories as they’ve come along. Nothing has even approached ThomasNet for quickly and efficiently connecting prospective customers to the specific, relevant pages on my client’s website. It’s direct, trackable and has resulted in verifiable sales. Thousands of companies each year are introduced to my client and their products through ThomasNet.

ThomasNet is a Big Help for my Small Business

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: , — by: calexander, January 8, 2014 @ 4:30 pm

With the demands of running a small business I do not have the time or expertise to devote to my website and social media.  One of the best decisions I have made over the past few years was to partner with Tim and Mary to address this need.  When we first started working together I had no idea how to set up a website or even what social media was.  They gave me as much time as was needed in the initial setup and they frequently meet with me to provide statistics and recommendations for our social media program.   I am in the manufacturing business and by far am not an expert in the web side of my business.  Tim and Mary fill this need and I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with them.

ThomasNet Helps Us Reach Customers We Would Have Otherwise Never Reached

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: , — by: jschmidt, January 8, 2014 @ 3:27 pm

Our company had a unique marketing challenge because we were trying to sell a service on a non-exclusive basis to a wide range of industries.  We didn’t know who all our prospective customers were or how to reach them first.  Mary Anderson and Tim Camp perfectly understood our situation and suggested a new website that would drive customers to us.  Ilana Marcus was the project manager and developed a detailed project schedule and timeline.  The development of the new website was done in a very professional manner and all critical deadlines were met.  The new website was actually launched ahead of schedule.  It is generating many new sales leads from customers and industries that we would never have otherwise reached.  Mary Anderson has continued to stay in touch with us to support us as needed.

Knowledgeable Representatives Educate Us About New Trends in Online Marketing

As representatives of ThomasNet, Mary and Tim Camp are very knowledgeable representatives of the products they market and of the ones we use for Social Media and Internet Marketing.  They do an excellent job to educate our team about new industry trends in social media, web site marketing and competitive products, so that we comprehend the information to make appropriate business decisions.  If issues arise, they jump on them right away and get back to us before the day’s end.  Mary and Tim make regularly scheduled visits to our company every other month to share information with us, but at the same time to become equally as knowledgeable about what we do as a company too.  We also are very happy with the level of service from ThomasNet in general.  ThomasNet helps us with writing blogs for our web site and Jordan Mart  performs a stellar job in that regard.

Money well spent

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: bdutton, January 6, 2014 @ 9:14 pm

Our business relationship dates back over thirty years.  Back to the days where the “Book” was all that mattered. Quite frankly, since we really did not handle industrial equipment in those years, we had no way of really measuring the value of our listings or advertisements.

Now, Thomas Net has raised the bar.  We know exactly where our money goes and I can assure you that it is well spent.  I now access the Thomas Net Client Center and have the opportunity to review our internet usage both from Thomas and external sources.

Lisa Griegel has walked us through each step of the process.  As a result of her consultation, we have upgraded our web-site, improved our Search Engine Optimization and now we can measure the results.

Lisa, thank you for being there, in person and on demand, when and where we needed you.

ThomasNet and David Have Been Key Strategic Partners

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: pmhynes, January 6, 2014 @ 9:07 pm

David Gural and his staff at ThomasNet and B2B Design have been key strategic partners in building and growing our on-line presence.

Our investment in ThomasNet has not only helped expand our business base, but it has allowed us to develop our brand as a leading American plastic injection molding company.

David has taken the time to learn about our business and identifies categories that drive more leads to our website.

Recently, we worked with David and his staff to re-design our website.   Their knowledge of the latest in website development and BTB industrial marketing resulted in a new design that we are very proud of.

We highly recommend David and his team to anyone looking to grow their business.

Positive Experience with ThomasNet!

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: Jliolin, January 6, 2014 @ 4:30 pm

I have known the Thomas Publishing organization for many years as a user of the original printed volumes and then as a buyer of media space for clients within the Thomas Publishing organization.  My experiences on both sides of the business have always been positive. Since the organization moved to a total online resource for business, I have worked with the Thomas Publishing rep David Gural Inc, located in Bryn Mawr, PA. In my opinion his organization and specifically, David, is one of the top ten sales individuals that I have worked with over several years. From the beginning he was explicit in what was being offered and backed his statements with appropriate reports and data. His organization truly represents Thomas Publishing in a professional manner and strengthens the brand of the entire organization.

ThomasNet is our best salesperson!

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: gdetore, January 4, 2014 @ 8:16 pm

Construction & Consulting Associates is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business; we began working with Thomasnet several years ago. With the help of our Thomasnet representative, Lisa Griegel , we had Thomasnet construct a Web Site which presented a outstanding representation of our company. Lisa and the team at Thomasnet worked with us to get it right and now our Thomasnet website and program has become our best Sales person. Lisa stays in contact regularly with updates and helps us when we need it.

But there is one more piece a very important item, with this economy we fell short of our sales goal and this effected cash flow, we could not make the scheduled payments to Thomasnet.  Did they cancel us-NO!, they worked out a payment plan so we could work around our cash flow problems and still have the benefit of our Web Site and the other services they provide. Besides doing a great job, they are human too.

We get a significant number of leads and orders every month

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: G. Milner, January 4, 2014 @ 12:28 pm

Fluoro-Plastics, Inc. has been an advertiser with Thomas (first Thomas Register and now ThomasNet) since 1990.
The reason we remain customers is twofold. First, the Thomas organization is well positioned on the Internet to provide us with high visibility and a significant number of leads and orders every month. Second, David Gural (our local representative) has always provided the highest quality service, advice and support imaginable. Over 24
years we have come to rely on his and his staff’s expertise, insights and judgments in designing and periodically modifying our website. Also, he has referred us to talented vendors (photographers, designers and videographers) for special advertising and promotional projects. Twenty-four years is a long time to maintain a close business relationship with a vendor, particularly marketing and advertising services vendor. The reason we have never change is very simple: David Gural and Thomas keep up to date and provide the highest level of attention and service in the industry. 24 years is a long time—that is 288 monthly checks paid to Thomas and David Gural. We pride ourselves on being a value-based company. We strive to provide the best value proposition in our industry and we expect our vendors and suppliers to do the same. Thomas and David Gural do not disappoint. That is the reason we continue to work with Thomas and David Gural.

ThomasNet has served us incredibly well

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: Mpodob, January 3, 2014 @ 4:39 pm

We use ThomasNet almost exclusively as our marketing arm.

As a leading provider of heat treating services with specialized services and a limited direct sales staff, our challenge has been getting our message out to a potentially broad customer base that we have the ability to heat treat large parts and long slender parts.

We have several logical market segments to whom we direct market, and we do that quite well with a barrage of press releases to trade magazines, social media and direct mail – but after that, it is difficult to reach potential customers who may have need of our services, so we rely heavily upon the web to attract leads. Once we have attracted their attention, we seem to be able to convert these leads into orders quite well.

ThomasNet has served us incredibly well during the past 15 years, by attracting good, sound leads to our website and providing us with the inquiries that we have needed to help us sustain and grow our business.

And the help that you have given us in creating our website has been invaluable. We receive high marks from visitors to our pages in terms of layout, content and ease of navigation.

Kudos to you and your team, and ThomasNet  as partners in our growth and success.


Mark Podob

Vice President, Marketing and Sales


ThomasNet comes through for us!

Filed under: Client Testimonials — Tags: — by: BSinclair, January 3, 2014 @ 4:15 pm


Thanks for a great year. As always ThomasNet has come through again. A lot has changed since I first started using Thomas as my sole advertising media some thirty years ago. Wow, thirty years…. back when the big green books were king and having a full page add made you proud. Since then Thomas has stayed on top with its continued innovation and drive to stay ahead of this ever changing digital media world today. Gone are the big green volumes in their place an extraordinary powerful web based sales tool that I could not be in business with out.

So thanks again to you and your team for its continued support and thorough knowledge in keeping my advertising program on top!
