Idox Information Solutions has established itself over the last ten years as a trusted and well-known media service.

As Europe's leading provider of grants and funding information to the private, not-for-profit, public and consumer sectors our web platforms are the first port of call for any individuals seeking financial support. Our websites reach out to over 1,500 people every day and our dynamic and engaging content continually gives our readers new reasons to return to our sites, with an industry -leading number of unique visitors and page impressions across all our platforms.

We work with advertisers to deliver bespoke campaigns to a number of targeted audiences including: the small business community; charities and voluntary groups; green organisations; and students at 6th form, college and University level. Idox is passionate about communicating effectively online and continually invests in the ongoing quality and effectiveness of the solutions we deliver to our partners through brand, content and technical developments.

"We worked with Idox Information Solutions to help promote our website – the results were most impressive. With a keen eye on detail and a very professional approach, Idox Information Solutions made the whole campaign a breeze from our end and we have since used them on several other occasions. Idox Information Solutions is highly recommended."
— Andrew Mais, National Computer Centre
"We've worked with Idox Information Solutions for several months promoting our Free Basics accounting software. The download was an instant success providing our sales teams with hundreds of extremely well qualified leads. This measurable and continual success has installed us with great faith in Idox Information Solutions and we will continue to work alongside them in the future."
— Mark Green, TAS software
"Email campaigns to promote our environmental journal and website, the ENDS Report, usually bring in about 20 new free trials but with Idox Information Solutions the results were astounding – we had 147 new free trials within one week of the campaign going out – all of them extremely viable prospects. The quality of the data has meant the conversion rate to actual subscriptions has also been excellent. I would certainly recommend them and will be working with them again in the future."
