I would like to add that www.huddlebuy.co.uk is another such site that provides exclusive group deals for small businesses in UK. The world of marketing is ever evolving and this venture is another stepping stone especially for SMEs that could not avail such deals that were earlier available only for large enterprises.

Since half of most small business budgets are spent on repeat purchases it only makes sense that “Groupon for business” type sites are going to be a fast growing category. The creation of this new marketing channel for small businesses looking to acquire new customers as well as save money is a real win-win.

The trick will be to see who can offer the best experience on both sides; purchasing, and deal offering, and gain momentum and brand awareness.

To that end, let me throw my hat into the ring: BizSaves.com Where Business Saves. We’re in beta, have a lot of momentum and are growing fast.

Good luck to all of us.

I also like BizyDeal as it was created by B2B experts which adds a distinct relevance with a great chance of success.

Great post on a niche market within the “Groupon” or “Livingsocial” concept. Clearly there is a market for B2C companies to attract new business in hopes the end result will be a lifetime customer. Why can’t it work in a B2B setting as well? Time will tell whether this business is sustainable, but I believe it is.

GroupPrice is not alone in the market. Bizydeal.com, another Chicago-based startup, is getting some traction and is selling out of its initial offerings.

Great stuff in an ever evolving marketing world!

Kind Regards,
Stuart McMullin

What I like about BizyDeal is that it offers a wide variety of deals from cars to reducing processing fees on credit cards (today’s offer). I think it’s great that companies are finally applying some of the consumer oriented website models to the B2B audience. The purchasing power of this audience is a huge opportunity.
