The Telx Connect Marketplace: B2B Dating

January 2, 2013  |  Written by Andrew Baird, Sr. Director of Marketing & Communications

In dating, there are some simple rules to abide by:

1.       Know What You Want (and Are Willing to Give)
2.       Look and Act Your Best
3.       Be Brave
4.       Ask for What You Want

In business, networking and sales are not too far off from these rules.  In fact, we see this behavior on the Telx Connect Marketplace where customers create company profiles that best suit their brand, reach out to one another to request (or respond to) quotes for listed products, and are brave to post a PR message or an invitation to meet for an upcoming event via one of the many Marketplace communities.

What is the Telx Connect Marketplace?

The Telx Connect Marketplace is a customized service for Telx Customers to facilitate commerce and foster the development of new business relationships across a variety of industry sectors. The online marketplace serves as a one-stop shop for Telx customers to explore partnership opportunities, discover the significance of geographic connections, as well as buy and sell services within Telx’s vast ecosystem of global network providers, telecommunication, cloud computing, financial services, media, social networking, and enterprise companies.

At Telx, we’re trying to make it easier for our customers to reach out to one another and unearth the opportunity that sits, quite literally, a cage away in one of our many multi-tenant cloud computing data centers.  And why not leverage what we as online users are already accustomed to experiencing with today’s social networking features (Facebook, LinkedIn, OKCupid)?

On the Telx Connect Marketplace, we give our customers insight into the companies who are viewing their company profiles and products by alerting them with the names of the companies who visited their marketplace company profile or product page.  We even offer anonymity for shy companies or lurkers.  Moreover, we give our Marketplace customers a platform to target market their offerings in our ecosystems (Telecoms/Networks & Mobility, Digital Media, Cloud & IT, Enterprise, Financial, Healthcare, Government & Education and System Integrators) with event and message postings, and an API into your company’s Twitter account.  Telx then keeps the members of these marketplace communities in the know by sending summary emails of what is happening in these ever growing verticals, as posted by marketplace community members.

So, save your company’s budget on chocolates and flowers, and join the Telx Connect Marketplace today to flirt up some real business opportunities.
