B2B Marketing App & Platform

As a business you may have have unfilled appointments, down-time, unfilled tables, places and rooms, and so on. These are a drain on your business, and will be worth nothing at all tomorrow.

Or you may have have unsold stock, equipment, plant and machinery. Office, retail and storage space costs real money to keep, and disposing of any surplus or unwanted items creates additional cost.

The question is, how do you deal with either of these issues AND get new leads & customers? reduce your costs & overheads? and keep your cash in your business?

How many of these boxes can you tick?

You have…
  • unfilled appointments or empty/spare time in your calendar?
  • surplus or unused goods/stock?
  • spare equipment, furniture, plant, etc?
  • unsold/unfilled places at your events, courses?
  • empty tables, unfilled bookings, unsold rooms?
  • goods and services you want to sell as a promotion – to tempt new customers?
And you want to …
  • generate new leads, customers, referrals & repeat business
  • reduce your business costs
  • keep more cash in your business
  • fill those seats, places, tables & rooms
  • have built-in promotion and advertising to a network of other members and business owners
  • be invited to regular networking and business to business events
The solution…

Would it not be better to exchange all of this for trade pounds or business credit so that you can buy in new goods and services, and attract new customers and business-to-business opportunities without spending cash from out of your business?
