Everyone is talking about the next big wave in technology, the Internet of Things (IoT), but GearBrain is working on it every day. We are the experts when it comes to simplifying this new connected life. We also solve the connected device purchase process and operational issues found with the myriad of smart devices and systems.

The IoT is the biggest wave in the development of the internet. It's allowing us to connect to new places–such as manufacturing floors, energy grids, healthcare facilities, and transportation systems–all via the Internet. As long as an object can represent itself digitally, it can be controlled from anywhere in the world. As a result, this connectivity means more data gathered from more places, with more ways to increase efficiency and improve safety and security. Experts predict it will be a $ trillion market with over 28 billion "things" or devices connected in the next five years. However, with all these new devices connecting to different places, there are a lot of unknowns. Most importantly, buyers are confused about how it all works and what it all means to them. Consumers need smart, understandable buying advice and recommendations to help them understand this new connected world and to help make the best decisions for them. GearBrain is a pioneering recommendation platform where consumers can research, discover, buy, and learn how to connect and optimize smart devices.

Advertising Opportunities

GearBrain is unlike any other technology publisher. We understand consumers are frustrated today in trying to find the right solution to a problem or need regarding new technology. How many times do you do a search and end up on a site that only gives you half of the information you need? Or how many times do you go to a site looking for help on a project, and it tells you how to do it but not where to buy all the materials or how long to build the project? All the time, you are bombarded with non-relevant advertisements. Our goal is to change this for consumers and advertisers.

GearBrain offers advertisers several unique marketing solutions that can be customized to meet your marketing goals. Here are a few exclusive advertising opportunities available to our advertising partners:

Sponsorship of The GearBrain:
