Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 25, 2012
Nearing the end of the first year of operations, CouponTrade.com, the consumer-driven gift card marketplace, recognizes the challenges small business owners face. In honor of National Small Business Week, the site wants to keep entrepreneurs’ wallets full and keep their businesses growing despite economic concerns.
“Large businesses have the necessary capital to maintain cash flow, but entrepreneurs across the nation face internal and external challenges on a daily basis that threaten keeping their businesses ventures alive,” CouponTrade CEO George Bousis said. “The smallest financial adjustments to help a company save money hold a long term value on its ability to sustain further growth.”
The online savings hub, where consumers can buy discount gift cards and pair them with online coupons, wants to offer three key ways for businesses to save on their everyday expenses.
Billions of dollars are spent on office supplies each year, as the average worker consumes $500 worth of office products annually. Some items are more luxurious but pens, staplers and ink cartridges have become office necessities. CouponTrade offers exclusive discounts and savings on office supplies from popular office brands to help reduce operating costs.
Moving to a new office requires following a budget and a plan. When moving, the business should consider where its location is and if the building is large enough for a company’s future growth. A move can get expensive with new computers and software, but using online coupon codes, businesses can save thousands of dollars at popular stores.
Preparing to go pitch a venture capitalist or hosting a local networking event can take time and can build up expenses, but it can establish long-term partnerships and bring in funding to accelerate product development. Making an impression on the local small business community and making the pitch memorable can be done inexpensively with savings on name brands from national retailers.
