at reaching percentiles of readers in some subjects - depending on the type of
product and the newness or maturity of the market.

since 1996) is a hands-free advertising service which was designed for busy
company founders and senior marketing / sales management. All you need is email
and a credit card.
You tell us which products you want to promote and
we create the draft ad. All it takes is a couple of emails to set up. And we
update the ad content automatically from analyzing news about your company -
which keeps it relevant until the next major ad review.
Or you can

reasons to advertise on StorageSearch.com
- it works! - that's why many of our past SSD advertisers ran ads
here for year after year.
For many leading SSD companeis this started
from the 1st SSD ad which the companies ever ran upto the last ads when they
were acquired - for periods ranging from 5 to over 10 years.
- unmatched reader quality! - Many of our SSD advertisers say:-
storagesearch.com delivers higher quality readers, more RFQs and lower cost of
leads than any other web advertising they have tried (including Google).
|You can pay by credit card, check or wire
transfer, whichever method works best for your accounting department.|
we've discussed the ad package with you - we'll email you an invoice and your
ad will start typically the same or next wroking day after we get your payment.

|Editor:- September 22, 2014 - This is a time of
year when many marketers are reviewing their business plans and wondering about
ways to increase their visibility to the people that matter in the SSD market.
You may not have known this but StorageSearch.com was the first
publication in the world to focus on the SSD market and we've been selling ads
which have helped to shape and change the SSD market for 15 years.
an interesting aspect of our customers which only occurred to me this afternoon
when I was thinking about how many great SSD ad slots we've now got to
If I look back at SSD related companies which have been
January 2013 - who were also significant multi-year SSD advertisers on
StorageSearch.com it yields a list like this:-
you may wonder - after seeing the above list - whether the primary reason
for SSD companies to advertise their wares at all was because they wanted
to get acquired?
But many of these customers of ours were advertising
SSDs on StorageSearch.com for
before there was any appetite for such activities.
Why did they do
They advertised to get noticed and to get more visibility for
their messages where the serious SSD customers are.
And maybe also in
some cases because they liked the market expanding SSD awareness content
which StorageSearch.com delivered.
What about advertising SSDs today?
no guarantee that advertising your SSDs will lead to your SSD company getting
acquired. (That would be a ridiculous notion.)
But it will get you
noticed sooner and deliver more visibly to people who make this market happen.
if you're not scared of mice, and if you're involved in sales,
marketing or business development in an SSD company - then you may be interested
