ZANA Network takes the heavy lifting out of identifying and following up with opportunities that can really improve my bottom line. I wish ZANA Network had been around when I started my business, but now that it is here, I'm never going to worry where my next new business lead will come from. There's a lot of value in the membership fee.

The corrected release reads:
ZANA NETWORK LAUNCHES BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT OFFICE (BDO) FOR SMALL AND MEDIUM ENTERPRISES (SMES) TO POWER THEIR BUSINESS
Combined with the $350 Billion in Contracts and Financing, ZANA Network Enables SMEs to View Contracts, Find Financing Opportunities, Keep the Business Pipeline Filled and Boost Revenue
ZANA Network, LLC has stepped to the plate to fulfill the most pressing need of small businesses everywhere: finding and developing new business. Today the company, the world's largest contractual portal where small and medium enterprises (SMEs) can access business opportunities, contracts and financing locally, nationally and globally, announced the launch of the Business Development Office (BDO), a unique initiative to become the business development arm for SMEs.
ZANA Network helps its membership – which has grown more than 325 percent over the past six weeks – search for and build partnerships, distributorships and alliances in the United States and abroad. ZANA Network has the ability to finance transactions in nearly 194 countries and territories. ZANA Network is also a marketplace for SMEs where they can find or sell products and services, manufacturers and assemblers. In June, ZANA Network announced a first-of-its-kind offering that provides access to sales representation for SMEs around the globe.
The BDO moves ZANA Network from being a comprehensive resource to being an active team partner in its members' business success. Specifically, each member can contact the company directly to help find specialized opportunities, develop new leads, qualify for government and other kinds of contracts around the world, and submit appropriate paperwork to enter the bidding process. In essence ZANA Network becomes an extension of the small business' team, working side-by-side to help reach its full potential.

This is especially important today, given the current economic outlook. With ongoing reports of downsizing, company closures and lending issues, the economy may take as much as two more years to straighten itself out. This places tremendous pressure on small business owners, who already bear the burden of running a small operation. Seeking new business is critical to a company's survival, but takes focus away from the company's core line of business. By teaming with ZANA Network, which is already the world's largest contractual portal, with more than $350 billion in contracts in its database at any given time, small business owners have a qualified extension of their management team whose expertise and focus is solely on developing new business.
ZANA Network also offers ways to mitigate the financial risk of working with new companies through the availability of ordering Dun & Bradstreet reports, government and financial reports as well as credit insurance for receivables.
"With our new business development office, we are going the extra mile to help relieve small business owners of the many roles they have to juggle: CEO, CFO, operations, new business development, personnel manager, logistics, payroll/accounting specialist, etc. At the end of the day, small business owners want to make money, make it well and make it fast," said Howard Keating, CEO, ZANA Network. "Small business owners need more time and resources to pursue new business, which is why we decided to not only offer the most comprehensive small business resources and the most bidding opportunities on the planet, but also to actually help them win the contracts and achieve business success. Now members can have a ZANA Network teammate who will help them identify, qualify and submit for premium opportunities right in their line of business."
The Business Development Office is available to businesses at a trial offer of $75 per month for each of the first three months. Following the trial period, ZANA Network members will pay $500 for an annual membership and $75 per month to use the BDO. ZANA Network receives a commission for every new piece of business brought in to a company with the help of ZANA Network. A success fee will range between one and three percent.
"This is an unbelievable value-add for any small business that needs new business opportunities, especially sales and financing – and needs them now, " said Scott Thornton, Managing Partner, TMV Group, and ZANA Network member. "ZANA Network takes the heavy lifting out of identifying and following up with opportunities that can really improve my bottom line. I wish ZANA Network had been around when I started my business, but now that it is here, I'm never going to worry where my next new business lead will come from. There's a lot of value in the membership fee."
