Some comments from our advertisers
Recognising the leading position that edie.net maintains within the industry, we've used the website to advertise the Wagtech brand of water testing equipment for a number of years with great success.
edie.net has an excellent Google Page Rank meaning that our position in search engines was largely dictated by the popularity and thus quality of the edie.net website and associated links to our own. It was however, a product placement campaign that we ran on the edie.net home page in which we experienced the most benefit from this site.
The revolving banner meant that a new product launch was recognised by, and generated enquiries from, vast numbers of interested customers; far in advance of what our traditional advertising would have achieved.
"Thank you for your speedy response and even more so for the pro-active content! Always refreshing to hear and anything which improves efficiency during the day is a bonus, so thank you again."
Marshall of Cambridge Aerospace Ltd
"We decided to hold a webinar through EDIE to reach new audiences and take the hassle factor out of the webinar logistics. We were delighted with the response and certainly couldn't have dreamt of having 250 people participate in an 'real' conference or event at our Head Office. That we still had 90% of those people on-line as we closed the final Q&A session, was testament to our going for a webinar with EDIE."

"We've been working with edie.net over the past 12 months to help get the word out about Tetronics and what we do, and we've seen some excellent results from working with them, so we will continue to develop the relationship going forward.
We recently participated in an edie webinar. We were very pleased with the way edie helped us to promote the event, which led to a high number of registrants. The webinar proved an excellent way for us to present our message and we will certainly look at doing more of these with edie.
Kate Colclough, Tetronics
"Nairn [Nairn Foster, edie Energy sales] and Helen [Helen Simpson, edie production and technical support] have both been a fantastic help in organising getting my company put up on the website. They both have really gone out of their way to assist me and to make sure that we are getting the most usage for our money! They call me back when they say they are going to, go out of their way to email suggestions and use their initiative. It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with both of them and I think they are both a very valuable asset to your company."
Cindy Zarebski, Lightwater Environmental ltd

"Haigh have been advertising with Edie for many years now and consistently find it excellent value for money and are impressed by quality of both the direct enquiries generated as well as the extra traffic it generates for our site."
Luke Shepherd, Managing Director, The Haigh Engineering Company Limited www.haigh.co.uk
"Why we chose to proceed with advertising through edie.net: First and foremost because our visibility on search engines, such as google, has increased significantly.We received 5 inquiries the first 3 weeks we advertised through edie.net, and I believe the number of inquiries will just increase.
Edie.net has a large and relevant audience to all products that has something to do with the environment (and probably other products as well)
Edie.net's employees (especially Mr. Carl Myers) are very helpful and co-operative. In cases where we did not know what to do / or had questions of any kind, they gave help to us.
I can recommend edie.net, without hesitation, to any company that wish to increase their number of inquiries."
Morten A Larsen, Delitek AS www.delitek.no

"Just a note to confirm that the Programme Director and I are in agreement that exposure of our courses and information about the Centre for Environmental Strategy on edie.net is most helpful. That our details are available world-wide giving potential students access to our information and training opportunities is very much appreciated and I'm sure we should have used edie.net earlier than we did. We will certainly be expanding the details we place with you for an even wider audience. "

"I just wanted to congratulate EDIE on their excellent product. We have received numerous enquiries as a result of our listings in the contaminated land section, particularly in connection with our new soil washing plant. All in all it is proving to be excellent value compared to other media and we will certainly continue to use you."
Guy Pomphrey – UK and Ireland Manager, DEME Environmental Contractors (DEC NV)
"We like edie. We have had a 250,000 euro and 350,000 euro job from new clients. They would have never found us ,if it was not for edie. We also had an fantastic enquiry from New Zealand which is at the final stage of discussion and are waiting for a decision."
Nick Carter, Simdean Envirotec Ltd
"Since we started advertising with Edie.net around a year ago we have received a steadily increasing number of good quality enquiries from businesses of all types from throughout the UK. Many of these have resulted in us receiving orders we would never have been considered for before. In August 2005 alone we took orders from Edie.net enquiries with a capital value in excess of £40,000.00 and without doubt paid for our annual advertising many times over. I would recommend Edie.net without hesitation (just not to any of our competitors!!)"
Steven J Burnett, M.D. Compact & Bale Ltd, Kent
"I just thought I would send you a quick e-mail to say how delighted we are with making the decision to enhance our entry on your website. We are receiving a healthy number of enquiries and the encouraging thing is, they are quality ones."

Clive Temple, Director of Sales and Marketing, School of Industrial and Manufacturing Science, Cranfield University
"I would just like to express my thanks and gratitude to the team at Edie for the efficient and rapid service in getting our company and products onto the Edie website recently. We have certainly seen an increase in sales leads and our ranking on the major search engines seems to have benefited since we signed up with you. We will be making use of your news / product release features in the coming months to launch some exciting new technology and trust this will be as successful as the category listings we have benefited from since we registered. As a relatively new company with limited marketing budget we believe that the Edie site and services is an efficient and cost effective method of reaching potential clients. Keep up the good work."
Jim Mills, Managing Director, Air Monitors Ltd.
"Since we went live on edie.net we have received over 60 enquiries from the response form - this in only 4 working days!
Importantly, they have mostly expressed positive interest in specifying or purchasing Ecosacs, resulting in a quotation strike rate of around 30%. With your news release on our company yet to be posted we expect an even bigger response.
Naturally, we are very pleased that the option to advertise on edie.net is working so well and are also impressed with the professional advice given prior to and since going live and also with the eye-catching quality of our site."
Frazer Walker, Ecosac.
