such as alibaba, made-in-china, due to these B2B has AD spend on Google ADwards.
(I use “China Furniture handle factory” as key words on www.google.com )
But I don’t think it is a good way, due to there are so many supplier on these B2B websites.
You may asked to join in, although it is free, it takes you several minutes to complete the requested information of you and your company.

So if you just start your business on furniture handle, or just one or two projects related to furniture handle, and don’t wanna to get non-stop reply after the project is finishing, don’t use B2B.
