What is Sluamor and why should I use it?

Sluamor is an online platform that helps to bring companies together so that they can continue to grow their businesses.

Sluamor is for you if you are ready to make and leverage businesses partnerships as strategic growth tool.

Let's say you really want to something along the lines of the following:

  • Extend your business into new target markets, locally or overseas;
  • Develop new innovative products for your target customers;
  • Diversify your product offering to create a new customer base;
  • Win a bigger contract with one or more new or existing customers.

However, you're struggling because you do not have a competitive edge or the in-house resources or the right contacts within your existing network to make this happen.

You should use Sluamor to find the right business partners for growing your business, regardless of where they are in the world.

Sluamor is for you if you're looking for new suppliers.

Let's say that you're looking for new sourcing options outside of your existing business network, e.g., to obtain more reliable suppliers, more competitive price options, niche products and/or services, or alternative suppliers.

However, you know that if you rely on your existing network, you'll either have nothing to show for your efforts, or you'll have to make do with the "possible candidates" that you will find even you know none will be fully able to meet all of your requirements.

You should use Sluamor to find suppliers of the products and/or services your company really needs, who genuinely want to do business with your company.

Sluamor is for you if you want to learn about more business growth and sales opportunities.

If you're like most business persons, you'll be eager to identify new ways to fuel the growth of your company, if you believe that there will be significant benefits for you and your organisation.

However, you struggle to learn about enough business opportunities through your own personal network, whether it is large or small. Additionally, learning about real potential customers is a daily hassle and you often get frustrated in trying to generate new leads.

You should use Sluamor to add significant value to your business by getting notifications of new and genuine business opportunities so that you don't miss out a chance to increase your sales numbers or improve your competive advantage.

Subscribing

What do I do if I haven't received an authentication email after subscribing?

Sluamor sends an authentication email to all subscribers after they've registered, and prevents anyone from signing in until their email address has been authenticated.

If you cannot find the authentication email, we suggest that you check your Spam folder. You can also request to reset your password email.

If you believe that you'd used an invalid email address when subscribing, please contact us as soon as possible via the correct email address so that we can assist you in rectifying the problem.

Why should I keep my company profile anonymised?

We safeguard the privacy of our subscribers, so that they can feel comfortable about sharing their business ideas without worrying about fraud or fear of harassment.

As a result, we aim to keep shared company profiles and subscriber personal data anonymous (i.e., without any obvious links to our subscribers and their companies).

However, our customers are in control at all times, and they decide who they want to interact with on their terms, whether keeping their details anonymised or otherwise.

What do I do first, as a subscriber?

If you're already a subscriber who's thinking to share a business opportunity or to register your interest in an existing business opportunity, you should add a profile of your company if one does not already exist. Watch our Adding a Company Profile video to learn more.

If you'd like to receive alerts of newly published business opportunities, start by adding a pitch alert. Watch our Addition of Pitch Alerts video for further details.

Company Profiles

Why do I need to setup a company profile?

After you've added a company profile, we use the submitted information to verify that your compay is a legally registered business entity in the jurisdiction in which it was established. We also confirm that you are an authorised representative of that company.

Why is this important? It helps to provide a level of comfort to the Sluamor team, all our other subscribers, and even you, that the business persons they interact on the platform are genuinely looking for business partners and business opportunities that can help them to grow their companies.

Pitches

What is a Sluamor pitch?

A pitch in Sluamor is basically a company's explanation of why they want to do business from one or more other companies, the nature of support needed, and how the business opportunity could prove beneficial to those other companies.

In other words, a Sluamor pitch outlines why the pitch owner is looking for business partners or suppliers, and how those parties could make money as a result.

What's the difference between a Consortium versus a Marketplace pitch?

Marketplace Pitches

You should use a Marketplace pitch if you're looking for procure products and services from suppliers.

Consortium Pitches

You should use a Consortium pitch if you're looking to team up with other companies to form a short- or longer-term strategic business partnership for reasons such as the following:

  1. Kick start a new business initiative;
  2. Win your first public sector contract;
  3. Win larger public procurement contracts in your own territory or further afield in other countries;
  4. Distribute your products in new market markets; and
  5. Diversify your product and/or service offerings.
