International Trade Search Engine TOBOC Helps Businesses Compete in Global Markets with Innovative Company Database

(PRWEB) October 14, 2005 -- International trade search engine TOBOC ( announces the launch of their extensive new database. The website brings together suppliers from developing countries with companies from around the world, making businesses increasingly competitive in global markets. A key underlying component of the site is that all types and sizes of businesses from around the world can use it. It is a hub of more than 2 million company profiles spanning 240 countries.

International trade continues to grow at an unprecedented rate and a large part of this growth coincides with increased worldwide Internet use. Using an innovative approach, the TOBOC website harnesses the power of Internet technology and marketing for businesses by making it easy to find trading partners in hundreds of countries.

The powerful search engine allows users to browse through millions of company profiles. The database is continually growing as new companies are added and current listings are updated and expanded. In fact, thousands of members change their featured products and collections on a regular basis, keeping the variety fresh and updated.

TOBOC is a dynamic, cost-effective solution for businesses looking to expand their operations on a global scale. Using a broad approach, companies can take advantage of detailed listings of exporters, importers, trade leads, brokers, and insurers. Moreover, the transporters directory is an exclusive feature of the site where users can search for freight forwarders and cargo carriers. The site also highlights service companies, an area of international trade that has seen tremendous growth in recent years. Taken together, TOBOC presents an exciting novel approach to business hubs and opens doors for new opportunities for small to medium sized companies.

TOBOC makes it easy for companies around the world to find each other. With three levels of membership, users can personalize their company profile and customize their own detailed catalog, including the use of photos and product descriptions.

In addition to the search field options, the site has a unique browsing filter that limits searching based on how a company exports or imports its goods. This allows users to decide how fine-tuned or exhaustive they want their searches to be.

For even further promotion of a company’s products and services, the site offers several advertising methods. This helps build awareness and generate a buzz about certain products.

As traditional marketing approaches continue to lose their effectiveness, it is large Internet undertakings that play a significant role in the way businesses connect. TOBOC members reduce their marketing investments and place their promotional efforts through a target market that the world has never seen.

The business-to-business resources offered by TOBOC help make it one of the most efficient trading search engines. It is cost-effect and saves time with its unique database searching capabilities. With companies increasingly taking advantage of the spread and availability of Internet technology, the site will continue to expand into one of the world’s most powerful business-to-business search tools. In addition to online visibility, the company is promoting their site at trade shows.
