4specs is a resource for US and Canadian architects, engineers and specifiers. As such we do not list companies from Europe or Asia, unless they have a strong US presence and an exclusive importer or distributor. We also do not list contractors, distributors, dealers or reps.

When an architect uses the 4specs sections directory looking for a product similar to yours, does your company name and hot link appear in the top listings, or does your competition's? Call it search engine optimization or advertising, either way 4specs delivers more qualified users to your website than other construction websites and publications. Here is our online media kit.
Here is how to optimize your company's results from 4specs:

We have priced these ads to help the smaller manufacturer be seen yet not break their budget. Ask us about our introductory offers for the first year for some new advertisers. On renewal, our showcase listing pricing is set this way:
Per referral - A referral is defined as a person who clicked through 4specs to visit your website. 4specs has a referral tracking system. At the end of the month we eliminate any duplicate clicks from a user (using IP numbers or session cookies) on any given day. Our rates are set to be under $1.50 per referral, lower as the number of referrals increase above 750 per year. If we sent your website 50 people per month - 600 total for a year - the renewal cost would be $750 for the next year, even if you were listed in 5 sections.
We recognize that you may have been called by every website publication asking you to advertise, and we want you to evaluate 4specs at our very low costs. 4specs is in our 19th year and is profitable. 4specs is going to be around for a while.
Ads can generally be online the same day as the information is available.
