Bizz Buzz launched today as Australia’s only group buying site dedicated to small business deals.
While Australia has seen many Groupon copycats, and Groupon itself owns a separately-branded service in Australia, none of them aim straight for small business.
As an example, Bizz Buzz’s introductory coupon offers 60 days of access to Shoeboxed.com.au, a service that takes care of data entry and categorization for receipts, for free.
Entrepreneur Marcus Layton founded Bizz Buzz when he saw a gap in the market despite everyone jumping on the Groupon craze.
“Although the number of sites out there offering cheap cupcakes and nail polishing services has become a bit ridiculous, no-one has addressed the needs of business owners,” Layton said.
