provides access to a large audience that would otherwise be difficult to access.
Especially valuable are the e-mail blasts with specific product information.

“After basic internet advertising failed to provide any concrete leads at significant
expense, we joined Trade Only Design Library (TODL), five years ago. There is no question in my mind that
TODL.com provide excellent access to my target market and proves it every day
with contact information I can use. In five years of looking, I’ve found no equal
to TODL in the marketplace. You won’t be disappointed, we haven’t been.”

“TODL has provided tremendous exposure and creditability for our company to
active specifiers. Trade Only Design Library (TODL.com) quickly offers the hurried specifier qualified products for
consideration. The world wide web is vast, so in response TODL has assembled a
manageable website which presents suitable products for the design professional.”

“TODL’S focus on quality and breadth of content separates it from the 'product
marketing companies'. The media talents at Trade Only Design Library have not yet lost sight of what
has been the real reason behind their success – quickly accessible narrative and
graphical information about the stuff of our industry. Value is substance and TODL is
the most substantial component of our marketing mix.
The market screams ‘soft-sell’
like never before and daisycake is available to the TODL designer whenever and
wherever. I really believe we have been successful in this funky market because of
our exposure on TODL. TODL designers have used daisycake from Dubai to Dublin.
When the market is diminished it is essential to expand the market.”

your organization. What I love the most about TODL is instant gratification - seeing
my leads develop right before my eyes… (can’t do that with a magazine!)

“My experience with TODL (Trade Only Design Library) has been excellent. It is a very useful tool to have when time is tight and I need to find products for a project. I have also discovered some new manufacturers that I was previously unaware of and have subsequently ordered their catalogs for our library.
TODL is an excellent marketing tool for manufacturers to use to expose their product to a wide array of designers. I’m sure it is more cost effective than sending out brochures, which target a broad market spectrum of people who may or may not have any use for the product.
I strongly endorse the Trade Only Design Library and hope that it becomes an industry standard to offer products on it as a basic marketing tool.”

TODL has been a great resource for me for over 7 years. I’m constantly adding to our list of resources with items that TODL brings to our attention in the weekly email notifications.
Having the ability to sort by specific types of products, together with the links to the manufacturers’ websites, makes the navigation through the TODL site very efficient and thorough.
We are pleased with the expansion and growth that TODL is dedicated to bringing us. Thank you again for your service and dedication to improvement.

“Trade Only Design Library (TODL), with its weekly addition of so many new suppliers and resources, has been one of our firm’s primary resources for research and procurement of merchandise. Your comprehensive database of resources has saved our staff countless hours of researching merchandise and suppliers otherwise researched through the Internet or individual websites.
Of significant note is TODL’s customer service department. Frequently, unable to find particular products or suppliers, we have turned to TODL for direction. You have not only found the product for us but provided the suppliers as well. I wish to commend your customer service department for all the support and direction provided.
Once again, I wish to express our appreciation to TODL for its vast directory of suppliers and the many courtesies extended R.A.Lashua Interiors by Design through the years.”

Expansion of our knowledge and suppliers through your site has greatly enhanced our offerings.”
