"When advertising various brands of equipment, the new IRON Search section gives us a more even playing field with competitive brand dealers," states Tamera Ostrander, Advertising & Marketing Coordinator for A&M Green Power. "The unique layout of the new IRON Search section, convinced us it was the most effective advertising opportunity for us. We have confidence that our customers will like the new layout because it is very easy to find a specific model of equipment that is sorted conveniently by manufacturer brand."

"Wallaces Farmer is a well-known publication in our area and it reaches out to a number of customers whom we have not been able to reach effectively in the past," adds Jackie Ewart at Barker Implement, a six-location John Deere dealership in Iowa.

"Our dealership is always looking for the most efficient advertising channels that will allow us to reach as many customers as possible, as effectively as possible. With the strength of both IRON Search and Wallaces Farmer, we recognized this was our opportunity to reach our target market through both print and online channels in a uniquely effective, measurable way."

"Because I wear several different hats in my dealership, I need the most efficient tools to help me reach my current and potential customers," comments Jay Funke of Del-Clay Farm Equipment. "The IRON Search web-to-print tool that takes my listings from IRONsearch.com to their print section in Wallaces Farmer was exceptionally easy -- to the point it was fun to use."

"Equipment dealers have many options for advertising their used equipment. But we realized that no other print shopper publication provides a dealer any way of measuring performance," comments Scott Derksen, IRON Solutions Chief Information Officer. "We are excited that dealers are now turning to IRON Search - both online and print - as the most effective and measurable way to escalate the results of their used equipment marketing efforts."

The December 2008 Wallaces Farmer publication is scheduled to reach subscribers' mailboxes on December 15th.
