“One of the things that we use BizX for quite a bit are employee functions – so Christmas parties, rafting… it’s talked about for weeks. If we weren’t part of the BizX program, there’d be a ton of things we wouldn’t do. Happy employees are definitely making better product, which makes the customers real happy. And BizX really helps us make the employees happy.”Industry Sign & Graphics

“So typically our BizX clients come to us when they want a partner in their recruiting process but they still want to be an active contributor to that recruiting process. Using BizX allows a CEO or a hiring manager to focus on what they do best which is growing their business and it allows them an opportunity to partner with an award-winning industry leader like Another Source and together we can form a great partnership that benefits their business without taking time away from what they do best.

When I meet a CEO or a hiring manager or some type of business owner on the street and we’re talking about business objectives and cash flow and pains or opportunities within the business, I tend to always mention BizX because I have found it to be a great opportunity to take advantage of avenues and mediums that sometimes aren’t available or budgeted for.”Another Source

3.Grow your Customer Base

Media is another key area to grow your business. From print, to digital, to television—reach each of your customers where they are, without spending a dollar. Use your BizX!

“What BizX has mostly helped me do is build my business with customers that may not be in the area or know anything about who I am. It’s business that you just would not have had so that money is kind of free money to do things that will allow you to actually take more BizX money in, because if you have more business expenses then you can take more BizX and keep growing your company and it’s not any cash out of your pocket.”AA Auto Service Center

4.Recognize your employees

PERKS accounts allow you to recognize your employees in a quick, easy, meaningful way to recognize your employees. Simply open an accountand immediately your employee is given the designated amount of BizX dollars that they can spend. You recognize your employee and continue to build the economy of the BizX community.

“The biggest challenge was having the cash flow to bonus our staff…They work really hard and we like to be able to run contest with incentives to drive our sales and offer great perks to our staff… I really liked the idea of being able to use it for perks for our staff… We can basically use it to service our basic business needs and use it for growth potential.”Something Silver
