PRLog - May 23, 2011 - MINNETONKA, Minn. -- - Minnesota native, Paul Muchulas, recently launched an innovative resource for businesses searching for business products and services known as Connect To Buy.  After more than 12 years of experience in sales in the telecommunications industry and seeing his customers struggle with finding the right local vendors, he took a risk in these uncertain economic times, listened to his entrepreneurial spirit, and launched ConnectToBuy.com.

About Connect To Buy
After years in consultative sales, Muchulas realized his clients were constantly frustrated by the process of searching for trusted local vendors of business products and services. The process of finding a vendor took far too long and they were not always convinced they located the quality vendors necessary to make a good buying decision. Muchulas’s natural entrepreneurial instincts inherited from his father lead to the genesis of the Connect To Buy concept. In March of 2009, Paul began sketching out the framework of Connect To Buy and in August of that year he hired a developer to begin building the site.

Connect To Buy is a single resource for searching for vendors of business products and services.   Rather than using huge search engines to find local vendors, buyers can go to Connecttobuy.com to find pre-qualified and referred local vendors in a variety of categories. The goal is to have five to ten recommended vendors in each category. Buyers can select a vendor and make purchase decisions faster, more easily, and with greater confidence because Connect To Buy has pulled together a collection of pre-qualified vendors in each category. Categories include, but are not limited to office furniture, office equipment, web development, graphic design, IT providers, and phone systems. A buyer reviews vendor profiles, selects a vendor and requests contact via a brief form. A rep from the selected vendor contacts them directly within two business hours.  

In addition to making the purchasing process easier for businesses, Connect To Buy also provides local vendors with a relatively low-cost, low maintenance marketing medium. Providing an affordable marketing medium was another area Muchulas grew sympathetic to with his clients while in sales. With Connect To Buy, the vendor knows that buyers are driven to the site with the intent to buy. Vendors represented on the site have been recommended by business people and pre-qualified by Connect To Buy. Market research conducted on behalf of Connect To Buy suggested that a limited number of vendors be present within a given category to make the selection process easier for buers; therefore a limited number of vendors will be present in each category.

Connect To Buy is still in its beginning stage. His greatest piece of advice he would give new entrepreneurs would be to surround themselves with experts. He suggests taking the time necessary to select advisors and utilize their expertise to help guide your decisions
