Welcome To ASBN's B2B Directory

Connecting Business Suppliers To Their Business Customers

 

Here are some facts;directory

  1. There is no B2B directory system for the Automotive Service Industry. As a matter of fact, most retail or commercial industries don't have one. This is the first.
  2. All local businesses need your products, your services and especially your support but most cannot find you when they finally need you. Even worse, they may not even know you exist.
  3. Knocking on doors or "cold calls" has been the only cost effective means of marketing, especially if your business is 'local' or 'regional' in nature.

 

It's time we generated or own solution.

With the development of the Automotive Service Business Network, all businesses and all individuals working within, or related to this industry, have not only direct access to the ever- growing resource libraries but have full use of our communications network called ASBN Connect.

This creates a major opportunity for all our valued suppliers who need a better way to promote their services and support this industry.

A simple business directory system was the first idea, but it soon became apparent that many of our suppliers have more to offer than just an ad placement and product sales because Commercial Marketing is centered around 'building relationships' with your customers.

So, we got to work and created this industry's first, full featured, B2B Directory

 Features and Options

Before we start, there are two points to consider;

  1. Everyone must be a registered member of the Automotive Service Business Network (ASBN) to use the services offered.
    • This is important as a Security and Privacy requirement. The registration process is our first line of defense against spammers and non - legitimate users and gives us the authority to take action against those who wish to exploit our network for negative reasons.
    • Read More on Why Memberships
    • Memberships are FREE, so Join the Network
  2. Only registered users can view the details and contact information of entries in the B2B Directory.
    • Many of our supplier businesses are 'Commercial Only' business types and prefer their contact information not be available in the public realm.

 Now, on to the Features and Options;

Two Packages; Basic (Free) and Advanced

"Any directory is only as good as the listings it contains."

There is a vast number of supplier businesses looking to connect with our automotive business community in every corner of this huge market region. The only practical way to create these connections is through a commercial directory system that can be freely accessed by both parties.

Basic

So, applying logic as the solution to making this directory as complete as possible, every supplier type business gets a free business card style ad in the directory with no 'strings' attached and no further commitments.

All entries are fully indexed and are as complete as your business card (which you hand out freely anyway to your customers).

Advanced

For those of you who wish to expand your listing to include more details of your business, show off your products or services or add some images and videos, we have you covered.

Check out the comparison tables of the two packages we offer.

While you're at it, take a look at the category choices to list your company under. You can select up to ten categories to make sure you are found.

 

Commercial Marketing

Unlike consumer marketing, commercial marketing is all about building relationships with your customers and the B2B Directory is only the first step in developing your own commercial marketing strategy.

Many of you may be thinking that placing your ad in ASBN's B2B directory is your best opportunity to market your business to the automotive service industry, here in BC.  For some business types, this may be true.

But many of you may want an even more strategic and personal approach to marketing your products or services.

Okay, how about these solutions;

  • Apply your focus to specific segments of our industry like shop management, service technicians or other suppliers.
  • Focus your business to a particular marketing region or selected regions of BC
  • Having direct connections to your existing commercial customers who need your direct support
  • and a lot more to come

Since the core purpose of the Automotive Service Business Network is to bring all businesses and their people, along with all our suppliers and their people, together under one roof to share ideas and to do business, we have opened the doors to a marketing platform that can really serve the unique needs of both sides of the same coin.

Because, we're in this business together and we need each other.

So, what are you waiting for? An invitation?

Know your market, understand the needs and supply the solution.
