Purch’s chief operating officer, Doug Llewellyn, recently sat down with SMB CEO to discuss how Purch is bringing the power of information to small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBS). This extensive Q&A reveals the true value behind Business.com’s new Business Report Card, a “Zillow-like” tool that SMB owners can use to determine the value of their businesses…
“Purch already had a robust community of 5.7 million SMB members, but we wanted to extend further into the very important, but often underserved, category. We relaunched Business.com in April as a platform that serves small-to-medium businesses throughout their lifecycle, from budding start-up to global expansion.
Business.com currently has a focus on 15 key industries, including restaurants, construction/general contracting, retail and other key verticals. We wanted to start out in those industries to tackle the biggest sectors where we could make an immediate impact based on our experience, the size of our membership within these industries, and the alignment across these industries with our existing partners.
Business.com will expand across even more areas so we can address the needs of all small business owners.”
