LeadFerret Posts Directory of Contacts at The Largest Private Companies

The difference between private and public companies is pretty straight forward in definition: anyone can buy stock in public companies though stock exchanges like the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ, while ownership in private companies is by invitation only, and they cannot legally sell shares to the general public. The natural course of the birth, growth, and evolution of a company typically means that with enough success they will eventually “go public.” However, in some instances that is not case, but private companies with $5 billion + in revenue tend to be very rare, which is why LeadFerret has chosen to highlight these companies with this specialty directory.

See the full directory at: https://leadferret.com/directory/largest-private-companies

In examining these companies, it makes sense to first consider why a company would choose to forgo the allure of public financing, recognition, and the prestige that comes with being listed on a major stock exchange. Of course, to be able to make the decision to remain private you have to have the cash to not need private funding, and a plan for long term sustainable leadership. In this way, private companies are rate because it’s not easy to remain private for multiple generations. Once a company has the means to remain private, they then also have to have the desire to stay private and the fortitude to turn down promises of big financial gain constantly pushed in front of them by wholesale lenders. Often time the desire to stay private is exactly as it sounds, the desire to be private, as in the desire to retain privacy. Public companies are held to stringent reporting and disclosure laws and under far more scrutiny than private companies. The overlying principal is that leaders of public companies and legally responsible to always make the decision that is in the best interest of their shareholders, while private companies can be guided by other principals like personal gain, spiritualism, causes they care about, etc.

This also means that private companies tend to make decisions more quickly, which, by itself, is reason to be inserted in these companies. Anyone that has a product, service, or solution that is particularly applicable or relevant to privately help companies should find this directory useful.

LeadFerret Posts Directory of Contacts in Companies Using Wix

Over 77 million companies and individuals around the world have turned to Tel Aviv based Wix(dot)com for their web presence. Statistics vary on how many of those users have an active web presence, but either way, they are helping a very large number of people and companies with their website. The Wix platform consists of a DIY site builder that requires no knowledge of coding, templates, an app marketplace, and various other related solutions. Most of what they offer is available at no cost, with premium plans offering custom domain names (as opposed to whatever.wix(dot)com), an email server, and various other upgrades. Wix detractors will say their sites load slow, or that Google looks at sites and content on Wix differently than non DIY sites, but that has not stopped these companies.

Wix competitors in the DIY site building and hosting market include Squarespace, Weebly, GoDaddy, and WordPress, but many would suggest that Joomla and Drupal are also alternative solutions, although they tend to be more self-hosted platforms that users install on their own server, making them a little less turn key.

People with a product, service, or solutions that is complementary or competitive to Wix, this directory could prove very useful. These companies see the value of a web presence, but are for whatever reason not ready to, not willing to, or do not see the need to manage and host their own site.

LeadFerret Releases a Directory of Contacts at Wholesale Companies

Wholesale is typically defined as the resale of new and used goods to either retailers, industrial, commercial, institutional or professional users, or to other wholesalers.  Wholesale differs from retail in that the retailer typically buys from the wholesaler and sells to the customer. Wholesalers generally buy a large quantity of products directly from distributors, and because they’re buying in such high volume, this typically improves a wholesaler’s buying power.  Wholesalers do not deal with the end user, though.  Retailers, on the other hand, consist of small and large for-profit businesses that sell products directly to consumers.
