Roger Asay, Publisher/Owner, Asay Media Network

About Us

Founded in 1987, Asay Media Network is the publisher of the original Locator Magazine. We specialize in the office machines and business equipment industry. We serve Manufacturers, Wholesalers, Distributors, Brokers, Dealers, Retailers, Service Companies, Financing, Leasing, and Importers/Exporters.

In 1991, Asay Media helped open the door to U.S. companies who wanted to sell their products and services overseas by introducing the International Edition of the Locator Magazine, now an online publication.

The company also operates several websites, including:

OMBE.com has become Asay Media Network's flagship site. With its limitless capabilities and its unique innovations, OMBE is quickly becoming the fastest and simplest way for industry buyers and sellers to generate business.

Sales Lead Generation: Over 30 years of lead-generating experience

As the global industry leader, our goal at Asay Media Network is to bring buyers and sellers together. We have achieved our leadership role by generating more targeted sales leads of active buyers for our customers than any other industry source since 1987.

For over 30 years we have expanded and maintained a large customer base for the Locator Magazine and OMBE.com. Asay Media Network has more customers and content viewers than any other industry source.

Asay Media Users

We invest each day in finding new qualified buyers and sellers to subscribe to our services. We have seen the Internet become an indispensable business tool. With that knowledge, we invested in extensive research and development and made the transition to being 100% Internet driven.

The Internet gives immediate response to new products and services on a 24/7 basis. We offer you a variety of options to utilize the Internet and to showcase a variety of products and services. Our service options allow you to generate maximum leads at minimal cost.

In 2013, from June to December, our Internet traffic has surged. All of our principal Web sites are ranked in the top 10% for highest
traffic in the world. The Copier Network Web site is ranked in the top 1%,
as its traffic has more than doubled.

Since converting Asay Media Network to an all-Internet format, our user base is larger today than ever before. The rapid increase of international and global users has been substantial.

The users who make up our target audience represent a wide cross-section of the industry from Sales Associates to company Presidents.

Brand-Building: Invest with the Leader

The more often your company's name and its products are listed (in an efficient and organized manner), the more leads you get. Asay Media's sites reach a large targeted audience — building the brand names of your company.

EZLink Logo

Our proprietary software, EZLinkTM, was developed to meet the needs of our customers for a simple way to have their inventory posted and updated on our OMBE.com site. We recognized that for our customers, it was difficult to provide us the information in the proper format and on a regular basis, either weekly or monthly. Prior to EZLinkTM, most sellers would have had to spend several man hours in order to provide us their current inventory information and it was even more difficult if they wanted to provide photos for their products.

EZLinkTM provides us a way to collect the information from our customers' website, including photos, arrange, categorize the information and make the additions, changes and deletions for their current inventory. They are already doing the necessary work by keeping their own website current. In addition, we can also use EZLinkTM to harvest information from Excel files, text files and in some cases, even PDF documents for those that may not have their inventory on their own site. Keeping the inventory on OMBE current is crucial to the long term success of the site.

We are not aware of any other site in the world that is able to provide this service. We strongly believe that this critical advantage will help carry us forward in getting and keeping our customers. In most cases our customers do not have to do anything to get their products listed or updated on OMBE.

(Inventory must be accessible on the internet or make special arrangements with our IT staff.)
