NEW YORK, July 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Selling to large companies in the private sector is the subject of a new website, http://www.corporationprocurementexposed.com, that is being launched today.
The site was founded by Nelson Nigel who was voted the Small Business Administration’s “Young Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2008. As founder and CEO of construction firm Head Contracting, his recent website, http://www.governmentprocurementexposed.com, was the highly successful introduction to a series of instructional manuals for small private companies seeking to become a part of the $500-billion-a-year field of procurement, that is, selling goods and services to other businesses.
“Government Procurement Exposed,” which is widely available through major retailers like Amazon.com, provides step-by-step procedures for working with all levels of government, from the municipal through the federal level.
Although some of the same principles explained in “Government Procurement Exposed” apply here, the second volume covers information specifically geared toward dealing with corporations, such as business practices of various cities worldwide, he said.
Besides the book, this time around there will also be several added bonuses, including:
- A funding kit, offering tips on raising capital, insurance, and other issues pertaining to the financial aspects of procurement;
- A small business kit, which discusses topics like employment and human resources, legal matters, etc.;
- Three pamphlets, on the subjects, respectively, of cost reduction, building rapport with suppliers, and cost-effective buying.
Within the next few months, the remaining sites, http://www.constructionprocurementexposed.com and http://www.womenandminoritiesprocurementopportunities.com, will be released. All four books, as well as other miscellaneous materials, are to be included under the umbrella site, http://www.headexposed.com.
After laying the groundwork with these five web sites, Nigel will introduce WWW.PROOKURE.COM in February of 2012. A central database customized according to geographic location, it will serve as a business-to-business listing, connecting vendors and clients – corporate, governmental, and within the construction industry – on a global scale.
“This registry will allow smaller private enterprises to connect with major corporations worldwide in a way they have never been able to before,” says Nigel.
It is likely to be a subscription-based service.
