The International Milling Directory (IMD) will enter its 22nd year when we publish the new edition online and in print in July. As we were scanning the web for inspiration, this one page on Engormix’s site really caught our attention.
The 2009/10 edition of the International Milling Directory is featured here, and amazingly still exists online today:–

I hope everybody has had productive week and as the summer solstice rolled over so has our deadline for IMD admissions for the 2012/13 printed addition… well almost.
We have already seen such great enthusiasm in your participation for 2012/13 and even as I write this blog there are still so many of you registering with us so for those still thinking about it, stop thinking and start doing, remember it is free to join!
Once again there has been a tremendous amount of you who have contacted me regarding our equipment guides section which is filling up nicely. Thanks to the sheer scale of information we will be processing over the coming weeks, there will be some extra time available for those wishing to take part to submit art-work, etc.
The same applies to anybody wishing to benefit from a Company Profile page. Yesterday I posted some information on them and about the ways in which they could serve to expose your organisation, if you require more information on this I will be happy to receive your call or email.
We are now also taking applications for companies wishing to place adverts in IMD 2012/13, offering an extensive range of options to suit you. From quarter-page to full-page you can decide what size and and in what section you wish to place your advert, which will appear in print and online where it will stay for at least 5 years. Each new advert you place will be posted here on millinginternational and also in your profile page on the IMD website.
Anybody interested in advertising with IMD should contact me to discuss the most suitable option for you.
In the mean time let me take this opportunity to thank you for your participation so far in making IMD the most effective tool for connecting the world’s milling community. Publishing begins on Monday so be sure to take one last look at your print options for IMD 2012/13 over the next 48hours and enjoy your weekends!
Company Profile pages are fast becoming one of the most popular and successful methods in enhancing your exposure with IMD. Most of you will by now be aware of what they are and how they are of benefit to you. But for those that aren’t already in the loop let me outline what they are all about…
Placed within the Equipment Guides section, Company Profile pages are a blank canvass that extends across a double page spread. What you place on this canvas? Well that is entirely up to you. As you will see in the slideshow below we already have a wide and varying range of styles and methodologies in how our customers use this space.
For the most part those who have participated in the past have submitted 300 word articles about their companies and accompanied them with logos and miscellaneous pictures related to their organisations. Others have used the space to focus on a specific product and again with the help of some good photography or artwork they have proven to be more than just an advert.
Let’s not forget how IMD marketing benefits all work together in a continuous distribution flow exposing and promoting you further and wider than first impression might perceive, your company profile page won’t just be seen by our 8,072 current print subscribers. It will reach the 41,000 (approx.) online readers visiting hosting websites such as Slideshare and Issuu where the IMD is also available and even further still every new company profile page that we create is posted right here on millinginternational. And then there is of course the circa 300,000+ visitors expected on our www.internationalmilling.com expected throughout the year where you profile will be displayed.
When you choose to participate in a Company Profile page you will be in direct contact with our design team who will take on board any feedback you have throughout the design process, giving you the required amount of control in creating the page to your exact design and style specifications.
Interested? Take a look through the slideshow for inspiration on how you could stand out heads above your competitors, then get in touch with me to begin creating your masterpiece.
A Company Profile page in IMD is so much more than an advert.
