In a new study released by Floor Trends Magazine, researchers found that only half of tile & stone companies use the Internet to promote their businesses. In this rapidly growing technological climate, that seems like a shockingly low number. Fully 48% of tile & stone retailers and vendors are missing out on the benefits of promoting their companies via websites, blogs, and social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn. What is holding them back?
We here at VendorPriceBook understand the frustrations of doing business online. One of the biggest problems is that retailers have to go to multiple vendors’ websites and log in with different passwords to access their pricing and company information. On top of this, most companies also do business by phone, fax, email, and hard copy pricebooks. If a retailer has fifty vendors, this process can get quite complicated, not to mention time-consuming and frustrating. Until now, there hasn’t been a centralized database for all your pricing in one convenient location. That’s where VendorPriceBook.com comes in.
VendorPriceBook aggregates vendors’ pricing into a single website, allowing retailers to access pricing and company information with a single click of the mouse. But we’re more than just a directory for pricing–we’re a growing community of professionals, committed to connecting vendors and retailers in social sharing and communication. Think of us as a combination of LinkedIn and Facebook for the flooring industry.
We believe communication is key to developing business relationships, strengthening trust and building partnerships between retailers and vendors. If that sounds like something you believe in too, check us out at VendorPriceBook.com to see how we can help grow your stone, tile, carpet or hardwood business and promote communication within the flooring industry.
