We receive more unique visitors a day than most other piano sites see in a month, making us well positioned to provide you exposure to the largest number of qualified prospects.
Thousands of people find Piano World every day via the search engines, links from other sites, or referrals from their friends. They come here because they are searching for information about pianos. They seek advice and feedback. Many of them come back to post their thanks and share pictures with us. (*see some examples listed at bottom of this thread)

and Piano Manufacturers

Here is a good example of the power of advertising on Piano World. The following is from one of our display
advertisers (those boxes you see on either side of the forums). This email was sent to me on January 4, 2012, indicating how many times their ad was displayed on Piano World.
Something has changed in the past month (Dec.) with our ad on Piano World. Every time someone visits the page where our ad is, the ad is downloaded from our site just as though someone had clicked on it.In one day, the ad downloaded over 26,000 times
. That proves you have great traffic but we have to change something. Because of that one ad, our website's bandwidth needs have more than doubled in only one month."
(Note: We are now hosting the image for them to save their bandwidth).
