As we hit the midpoint of 2013, we at CIS are nearing uncharted territory, and it’s truly exciting to note the changes. Among the many things we have implemented, the addition of advertising opportunities has vastly increased both inside and out of the database. Our subscribers and advertisers are now able to reach their target market through several mediums. ChemGems, the CIS Blog page, is an ideal location to display your company. Our staff and contributors bring the latest in chemical industry news with a refreshing, real-life perspective on all things chemical each week. Join our growing blog community with an ad on one of the top viewed pages of chemicalinfo.com! You’re reading the Informer, and now so are 45,000 others. Advertise your brand with a banner ad in our newsletter or remain in the spotlight for the entire month by advertising on the Informer page. Reaching close to 50,000 readers monthly, an ad in the Informer could be the difference between meeting expectations and substantial growth for your business this year. In addition to hosting new space within the Blog and Informer, we have also answered the call of our subscribers’ interest in seeing capacity and pricing information tied to producers within the DWCP. CIS is pleased to announce the highly anticipated addition of the ChemInfo Classifieds. This section of the DWCP is focused entirely on allowing companies to buy and sell the products they manufacture. These text-only, low priced ads can include quantities, costs and contact information specific to certain chemicals. Each ad can be tied to a maximum of three products, so when your product is searched your ad will appear front and center for our captive audience of procurement professionals. Ads may be changed twice per month and are available in semi-annual and monthly terms at an affordable price. Has your company manufactured a surplus? Do you need to move it fast?
