We aren’t going to blow our own trumpet just yet, but we have already addressed some of your business essentials. One of the main areas that causes a business owner stress, is identifying the best deals for their particular operation, so we fixed that one straight out of the box. From the get go, TBC is a part of the O2, EE and Vodafone wholesale supply chains, that means we supply all TBC members at the price we pay plus a little mark-up (that’s only fair, right?) on business mobile telecoms. The same applies for Business Landline and Broadband. This provides you with access to rates that you wouldn’t normally get! For business energy, we have chosen the leading UK energy broker in the UK. Again, they will provide you with fantastic rates and push your bills down as low was they can.
Within TBC you have the ability to build Ads that appear in the Club for other members, all free. Your Ads can be simply to promote your business with an offer, maybe to advertise a product or service. Select the category in which you want to place your Ad, then include a discount, (that’s one of the rules of the Club), then a description, upload a picture or two, and click activate! Easy to use and built with the time-starved business operator in mind, its FAST and SIMPLE!
If you are already a member of a business networking club, that’s great, they do a fantastic job! (Well done to you if you are a club owner, keep up the good work). You may use LinkedIn, another great tool and others. At TBC we looked at all the options open to you as a business person and consider what we can do differently. After weeks of head scratching, this is what we came up with. We can make it easy to connect to more of the right people with whom to do business. Cost and time are key drivers for us, with people generally sceptical about parting with their hard earned cash every month, and using their precious time on something that may or may not be successful. In TBC you can connect to other members through our custom built platform. Search by business type locally or reach out nationally, which is also great! By default, the town / city location you enter in your profile automatically enrols you into your local Club. You can if you prefer, set your profile privacy and be incognito! Only takes a tick in a box!
Who’s your go to person if you need advice? Your accountant, your friends? We built groups for you to discuss whatever you want, (business of course). From your profile you have the facility to start one or more groups. Invite other members and keep it public or keep it private between you and your own contacts, it’s up to you. Getting other people’s opinions can be the difference in making a good or bad decision, be honest, we’ve all made the latter!
Here’s a genuine current challenge. We are all aware of the importance of social media and on-line presence for our business, aren’t we? Some or most of you will use some form of social media, be it Facebook, Twitter or whatever. Are you using it for your business? If you are, how do you advertise and promote your business. We fixed that – you can instantly push your TBC Ads to your social media! We cover Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and WhatsApp – As we grow and with your feedback we will add more!
Our first version is all about getting going. Your feedback reflecting what you do and don’t like, will be invaluable in making V1.1. We built this to help and engage business owners and would love your thoughts. At the bottom of every page you will see a link called Feedback, give it a click and tell us what you think!
