There are a lot of industrial directories out there and some work dramatically better than others.
There are so many directories out there that it would be difficult to register with all of them. However, there are a few that consistently provide good traffic and sales leads.

Initially, no. Later – maybe. If you can do a small budget and use Google Analytics to track links from the industrial directory, you might give it a try. Don’t depend on the industrial directory for your performance measures – that loses a lot of manufacturers money (average of $3000 per year for many). For my clients, I start them on website optimization and the free listings on the industrial directories listed above. If one industrial directory performs really well, that would be the best candidate for some ad spending.
