Brazzlebox was created for small business by small business. Glen Zinszer, CEO of Brazzlebox, has been a successful small business owner in Syracuse, NY for over 10 years.  "Starting and running a small or home-based business takes passionate and dynamic individuals," said Zinszer, "We know how hard you work and the sacrifices you make for your business. That's why we have created a site that makes it easy for you to instantly connect to your communities, speak directly to your customers and form customizable groups and business networks with other like-minded industry professionals within your area."

Other social networks like Facebook and Google+ allow you to share information between family and friends, Linked In has networks designed for professionals and Twitter discusses interests.  Now there is Brazzlebox, a full featured social network made exclusively for small and home-based business owners. It is free for users to sign up but Brazzlebox is one of the few social networks with multiple revenue streams from day one.   

"Our goal is to empower small business to help them succeed and grow," said Zinszer. "This is going to do great things for so many people who have sacrificed so much to make their small business successful and we are here to help."  Brazzlebox has partnered up with large businesses to offer deals and discounts on products and services small businesses use every day. We are also looking to partner with the chamber of commerce and business development groups everywhere to further assist businesses with important information relevant to their needs.

When you join Brazzlebox, you become a member of a unique community of small and home business owners. Brazzlebox gives you access to hundreds of local area business networks and connects you instantly to your local community. Brazzlebox is also aiming to be the most trusted and reliable source for people looking to start their own business.

Consumers will be able to join to receive local deals and discounts plus view community events, local causes and more.

It is community focused, meaning businesses within a community can connect with each other, share information and discuss topics that are relevant to their area.  Community functions and charity events can also connect with businesses and consumers to increase awareness and gain exposure. We are also working on multiple ways through our site and on the ground to assist small business recovery in communities devastated by disasters and tragedy.

On March 1st, Brazzlebox is launching a small and home-based business photo contest on the Brazzlebox Facebook page.  Facebook fans of Brazzlebox can submit a photo of their business or service on the contest page to try and win a cash prize of $1000.

Visit www.brazzlebox.com to be a part of the beginning!

Brazzlebox, established and headquartered out of Syracuse, NY, is expected to add 30 jobs within the community by the end of 2013.  Additional information can be found at www.brazzlebox.com.
