FLEMINGTON, NJ--(Marketwire -07/26/11)- Social media company Bizzingo, Inc. ("Bizzingo") (OTC.BB: BIZZ), has launched the first phase of its new B2B platform www.Bizz.net. The Company has begun populating the platform with businesses in order to provide them with a social networking and search experience similar to what Facebook and Google provide for individuals.
Within the Bizz.net platform, companies are able to set up detailed profile pages that allow them to describe what they do, what they sell, and their specific business needs, all indexed to highly searchable results. The business profile will also enable them to present their company's products or services through videos, images, and collaterals -- including company marketing material and literature.
This initial data-indexing phase provides the content for the Bizz.net search engine to deliver quality results to inquiries. These inquiries will retrieve highly targeted information, while screening out irrelevant or unrelated results. The goal is to deliver quality leads, translating into better-qualified customers and ultimately, increased business interactions and sales. Bizz.net intends to become the most accurate and powerful search engine for businesses in the world.
"The existing major search engines and social media networks are designed primarily for a consumer audience, creating leads that are of little value to businesses trying to reach other businesses," states Douglas Toth, Chairman and CEO of BIZZINGO. "Bizz.net's new, exclusive business to business search platform and social network actually delivers targeted leads and, for the first time, opens up the power of the Internet to millions of businesses who only seek to market and connect to other businesses for the purpose of transacting business."
As part of the rollout of its powerful new platform, Bizzingo expects to introduce tools designed to help companies utilize enhanced social networking capabilities for business. Planned features include social media connectivity apps, full search functions, turnkey lead generation, marketing and advertising functions, as well as general business Q and A forums.
