Business to business group buying sites offer great discounts on products a services that are highly desirable to local small business owners. Entrepreneurs are always looking for terrific services and products to help them grow their business, reduce costs, save time, and operate more efficiently. Business to business daily deal websites are a niche of the collective buying trend which originated by large social buying sites like Groupon and LivingSocial. These smaller social buying sites are simply using the group buying business model to address the needs of companies and their employees. While Groupon and LivingSocial continue to focus on the B2C daily deal market pushing discounts from spas to consumers and expanding internationally, these niche group buying site markets remain underrepresented. Fortunately, new niche daily deal sites are emerging to address B2B group buying opportunities and serve up awesome discounts, deals, and trial offers for local small businesses owners.
OfficeArrow – This was one of the first business-to-business group buying sites to appear. OfficeArrow isn’t just cranking out office related daily deals, they’re building an online community for small business owners to learn and thrive. Their partnership with BuyerZone helps connect businesses to trusted companies that specifically address entrepreneurs needs. This includes offering valuable business guides and tools to help the business owner make smart buying decisions when it comes to choosing phone systems, email marketing services, credit card processors, payroll service, and other products and services businesses require. Other resources that OfficeArrow provides include free business documents, forums, groups, business webinars, podcasts, management videos, and how-to business articles. Through a partnership with BizUnite, OfficeArrow’s Discount Club allows members to obtain further savings that aren’t available to non members. To further sweeten the deal, their Employee Perks program allows business owners and their employees to receive discounts on over twenty five thousand business related products and services such as wireless plans, travel services, restaurants, computers, business electronics, accounting software, freight services, and more.
