Amazon.com, the Internet's largest provider of books, music and videos, partnered with Tool Crib of the North a year ago to launch a Tools and Hardware store. The company offered a selection of electrical and lighting products for both do-it-yourselfers and professional contractors. Today, Amazon.com has launched a new feature — Amazon.com Outlet. The company has gathered all the sale items in its 13 categories and posted them at one location. Customers can view all the deals by visiting Amazon.com and clicking on “outlet.” The store has closeout pricing on electrical products, special deals on reconditioned tools and discounts and rebate offers.
Electric-find.com, a search engine founded by Durand and Associates, got 400,000 hits last year. The company has now launched a site for electrical contractors without a Web presence. Electrical contractors may obtain a Web site for only $95. This includes a one-year hosting service and a listing on www.electric-find.com. For $145, contractors can have a three-page Web site with a home page, services page and locations page. Electrical contractors who want to post project photos and contact information can order a five-page Web site for $245 a year.
