For the discerning exporter and importer, The Dollar Business brings the CONNECT Programme – the most efficient and effective enabler of business beyond boundaries. It’s the one programme that will help distinguish leaders from masses. We, at The Dollar Business, believe that success is a function of the resources available at any given time and can therefore, always be improved upon. The Dollar Business CONNECT Programme provides an in-the-making super successful exporter like you, some unique and amazing extras that will ensure you a place in the next level of accomplishment in foreign trade. So what are some of the ‘specials’ that we have on offer for a big-to-bigger aspirant in exports-imports?
Yes, that’s right! We bring your buyers right to your doorstep. All CONNECT members get 100 guaranteed leads from The Dollar Business to you every year. Our teams scan the world to find you the best buyers and send them to you every week. We don’t offer you mystery buyers or imaginary importers – we give your direct leads that can make your revenues swell. And the rest, as they say, is as easy as apple pie.
As a member of the CONNECT Programme, you have access to the International Marketplace, India’s most exclusive foreign trade platform where thousands of verified buyers and sellers CONNECT and trade. Specially for CONNECT members, we offer an add-on feature wherein you can create a premium website and customise it as per desired specifications, add special videos and tweaks that are generally available for websites which take a long time and money to be made. As a CONNECT member, what you get is a "Wow!" website - a lighthouse beacon, standing head and shoulders above the rest!
A growing business needs more customers. And finding the right kind of customers has never been easy, especially in foreign trade. We’ve created a new, opt-in system that gathers information from visitors of your webpage. We scan these leads for the best fits and send them to you as they become available. Rest assured, these leads make your life simple. All you do is get in touch and watch the money flow in! But wait! There’s more. We just don’t capture interested buyer details for you, we help you nurture your relationship as well!
Whether it’s an email, an SMS, a notification on WhatsApp, or a simple social media post to win you attention, you have the best templates in place and on offer for the marketing communication. Soon, you will forget the sting of spending money on expensive branding and marketing campaigns. A perfectly crafted email can have a greater impact than a great many phone calls or many many seconds on the idiotbox or getting a glitz star endorse your brand with a sparkling smile on billboards. We don’t offer you a communication channel – it’s a communication blast on digital media, which is where the world’s attention is at present (and headed towards with an ever increasing velocity).
