BUSINESS TO BUSINESS DIRECTORIES OF IMPORTERS BY PRODUCTS THEY IMPORT
Business-to-Business Trade Directories
The International Business To Business Directory of Importers is also available as 50 separate Product specific directories. Each of these 50 international business directories covers a specific group of products such as food importers, garment importers, furniture importers, computer importers, car importers and importers for all types of products manufactured.
These business to business trade directories of worldwide importers ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE - SEE BELOW FOR SUGGESTED REPLACEMENT.
Attempting to compile a list of worldwide importers for your products and/or services can be extremely laborious, time-consuming and quite often futile. These trade directories will save you from that futile task by providing you with listings of importers that have carefully been compiled by our publisher through their use of comprehensive questionnaires and very expensive annual mailing to each importer in their database.

Trade Lead Providers - Including The United States Government Are Closing, Here Is Why...
Attempting to compile a database of importers for your products can be quite fruitless, exceedingly painstaking and at the least very time-consuming. Now, even STAT-USA, the USA government agency that ran one of the foremost trade leads services around is shutting down September 30th , 2010. This helps explain why the publisher of the importers directory advertised above has closed and why there simply will be NO importer directories of "legitimate" importers anywhere, for any price that are up to date and not filled a time wasting load of scammers waiting to prey on unsuspecting exporting companies.
When asked by a close business associate of ours, the STAT-USA director advised him they were ending the trade leads program because getting quality leads had been harder and harder to compile and those that they did were not very good quality. Real importers, she said, were simply not submitting their requests anymore because exporters and manufacturers can be found so easily on the Internet.
This was one of the main reasons our publisher decided to close shop and retire rather than trying to sell it. He concluded that if the US government agency whose sole job is to promote trade cannot compile quality leads, well, I think you get the point?
So that brings us to a new resource our ongoing research has identified. One that helps you get direct access to LARGE VOLUME buying companies known as WHOLESALERS AND DISTRIBUTORS that are PROVEN businesses and not just someone who simply filled out an online form and submitted it asking for pricing and free samples, of course (you know exactly what we are talking about, don't you?).
your best Resource To Make DIRECT Communication With LARGE VOLUME Buyers Of Your Products
Since the directory detailed above is no longer available, your VERY BEST source to help you get in touch with many potential LARGE VOLUME BUYERS for your products can be found in SIC (Standard Industrial Classification) Business List Groups 50 and 51 which are Wholesalers and Distributors (each six digit 50/51 SIC code identifies the product they buy).
Now remember, MOST "genuine" Importers are no longer advertising the fact they are seeking products for many reasons, not the least of which being fear from exposing their email address, physical address and telephone number to the multitude of spammers and fraudsters that the Internet has proliferated. Importers also know that MOST legitimate suppliers have websites (NOTE: great reason why you should have a website) so they now find their sources without exposing themselves or their companies to the harassment of scammers and time-wasters who will call, fax or email them.
The VAST MAJORITY of exporters are not aware that SIC business list groups exist because they, like just about every other exporting company, are looking for easy and FREE trade leads that show up in Internet bulletin boards stating "we want to import your product" with most of these being either "Free Sample Seekers" or outright fraudsters.
But, SIC Group 50/51 lists of Wholesalers and Distributors, you get direct access to ESTABLISHED companies that BUY PRODUCTS IN LARGE AMOUNTS, products your company may be exporting or manufacturing. So it should make COMMON SENSE that while everyone else is chasing importer leads that are mostly sample seekers, time wasters and fraudsters that you and your company can be targeting your marketing to REAL, HIGH VOLUME BUYERS and turning them onto the value of BUYING AND IMPORTING PRODUCTS FROM YOUR COMPANY!
The SIC Code business lists for Wholesalers and Distributors are available to you in Excel format (other formats also available) that can be emailed to you within 1 business day. The lists are currently available from the following countries: USA, Canada and Mexico.
