Business.com partners with BizEquity to give SMBs competitive advantage with big-business insights into market value
Purch’s Business.com has launched the Business.com Report Card, powered by BizEquity, a small business valuation service that gives small-to-medium businesses realistic estimates of their value and comparisons with regional and national industry averages to help SMB owners better understand and grow their businesses.
Built on Purch’s already robust community of 5.7 million SMB members, Business.com relaunched in April as a content and commerce marketplace that connects industry-specific communities of small business owners with the experts who can help them grow their businesses. The Business.com Report Card, developed in part with online business valuation leader BizEquity, is the latest tool in the company’s growing SMB portfolio that gives small business owners access to vital business development services that were previously unavailable to them.
“Business.com continues to revolutionize the small business publishing model,” said Greg Mason, CEO of Purch. “This new SMB valuation tool fills a gap in the market by creating a ‘Zillow-like’ service for small businesses that helps SMB owners better understand their business’ value and gain clearer insight into their competitive standing.”
In addition to giving SMBs big-business insights through the key valuation metrics of asset, equity, enterprise, and liquidation, in the coming months, Business.com will allow SMBs to:
- Buy, sell or advertise their business;
- Manage local listings;
- Monitor reviews, social sites, and keyword/SEO performance;
- Compare business services ranking in relevant industries to what competitors are using.
The Business.com Report Card will be available for use across all the industries served by Business.com, including restaurants/hospitality, construction/general contracting, retail, healthcare, manufacturing, real estate, agriculture, travel, and financial services.
