OutdoorIndustryJobs.com, a leading Outdoor Industry job search company continues to provide services to connect people and businesses in the industry by launching a business-to business site. OutdoorIndustryB2B.com will be launched just prior to the 2012 Summer Outdoor Retailer Show.
â€œI used to be a supplier to the Outdoor Industry by owning a website and design company. The Outdoor Industry was our niche. I found it a challenge to contact the right decision makers and to market to the industry other than by attending trade shows or do cold-calling. This platform will allow those that serve the Outdoor Industry to showcase in detail their services, clients and portfolios. Buyers will be able to find the services and products they need to grow their businessesâ€, said Laurel King, owner and founder.
It's free for the buyer to search and find a service or product they need. Searches and robust portfolios will be available to find services and products such as photographers, programmers, consultants, sourcing materials, distributors, rep agencies, packaging and trade show booth companies. Buyers can create and send RFP's to one or more sellers through the website.
Sellers will pay a launching special fee of only $100 for the first year. Their companies will be showcased to the public and to any buyer who chooses to participate. As part of the site, sellers will be able to receive and respond to RFP's.
The site will be announced and marketed through various avenues including OutdoorIndustryJobs.com, which as a database of over 2000 employers and an email list of 40,000 people in the industry. Laurel King says, â€œI am excited about the potential of the site. With the support of the industry, I hope to provide a robust and valuable resource for businesses to find each other.â€
