Establish Yourself As An Expert

With GAWDAwiki, an industry’s worth of information is at your fingertips.

Customer relationships are forged on the basis of superior service and an in-depth understanding of the products and applications a distributor has to offer. With increasing frequency, customers are looking to the Internet instead of their local distributor for answers and second opinions when it comes to new products and technologies. As younger generations of welders and end-users enter the field, they will gravitate to the familiarity of online resources to answer their questions. With more than 1600 industry-specific definitions and over 37,000 page views every week, GAWDAwiki has proven itself as the go-to resource for customers and end-users looking to the Internet for a reliable source of information.

Your GAWDAwiki
Think of all the products you carry. Now think of all the processes your customers use. Between them, there must be at least a hundred industry-specific topics on which you have in-house expertise. Why not share that expertise with potential customers through the Internet? The terms and descriptions in GAWDAwiki do not come from a dictionary—they were contributed by those distributors and suppliers in the gases and welding industry who know the products and applications best. When you add to a definition, your name and website can be displayed under the definition, letting end-users know who provided the information. Can you think of an industry term that does not appear in the wiki? Add a new term and become the go-to distributor for that term. With no limit to how many terms you can add or edit, you can easily generate hundreds of traffic-building links back to your company’s website from a reputable source.
