SEARCH FOR GEORGIA COMPANIES HERE: This site is not only synced with the Hoover’s company listings but gives you available building and site information as well.
GET YOURSELF LISTED SO YOU CAN BE FOUND!
The primary database we utilize is Hoover’s. We encourage you to list your company’s information on this database so that your name is presented in the search process. Here’s how to get listed
Hoover’s states that:
Smaller company profiles are sent to Hoover's by our parent company, Dun & Bradstreet. If you would like to be covered by D&B, please call 800.234.3867. Or you can log onto www.dnb.com. On the website, you will see an option under Customer Resources for 'Get a D&B DUNS Number'. Obtaining a DUNS Number is the first step.
Also, Hoover's builds comprehensive records (the records that appear on the free site and include text) for US companies with annual revenues greater than $50 million and foreign companies with annual revenues exceeding $100 Million. If your company fits into this category, please let me know.
Also, on the Marketing Lookup Report on Dun & Bradstreet, there is a variable, "Marketability Code." For your company to display on Hoover's, please request D&B to set that to "YES" (i.e. you would need to opt out of the "Marketing Delist Option (DMI).") Please make sure you mention "DMI" to the customer service representative. After your DMI Option is changed, Hoover's will begin to receive the updated file and data in the next feed from D&B, and it would display on Hoover's thereafter.
Please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or concerns.
