Founded by Scott Gerber and Ryan Paugh, the duo behind Young Entrepreneur Council, SimpleBusiness aims to help small businesses get the same type of buying power that large firms and corporations enjoy. Since those large companies often benefit from volume discounts and preferred pricing, it’s difficult for small businesses to get the best rates without the size and leverage of larger businesses.
Small Businesses Can Leverage Purchasing Power, SimpleBusiness Claims
But by bringing all those small businesses together, SimpleBusiness says it can level the playing field. Small businesses that join the SimpleBusiness community enjoy exclusive rates on things like business travel, printing and even shipping and fulfillment services, the company says.

Currently, SimpleBusiness offers members up to 60 percent off hotels and car rentals, up to 40 percent off tech products, up to 30 percent off marketing tools and services, and even discounts on things like workspace and payroll services. Some of the big name vendors that SimpleBusiness works with include QuickBooks, Budget, Xerox, HubSpot, AT&T and Staples. The group also plans to add new member benefits as times goes on.
To get involved, you can purchase a membership on the group’s website. The current annual rate is $200 for a limited time, though you can lock in that rate moving forward. In addition to the member rates on business products and services, members also get a full-time Business Services Concierge team to help you find the right benefits for your needs and budget, the company says.
