With a patented preview ad system and comprehensive company profiles, buyers can preview useful information about a product and pre-qualify purchases before choosing to contact manufacturers directly. IQS Directory brings companies qualified site traffic for a flat annual fee by executing directory listings, search engine optimization, pay-per-click advertising, and website optimization strategies.
