Many buyers use B2B portals to find suppliers, also many small business owners use B2B portals to lower their sales and marketing cost. The truth is after you checked all the suppliers on B2B portals, not any actually big companies using it, here is why:
1) Do you often receive emails containing a zip or a link that told you to reset your password? If yes, then you may wonder how this person finds you? why they’re so interested in your email account and want to crack your password? The truth is are partially from B2B portals and partially hackers parasitize on B2B portals. No matter you’re a supplier or a buyer, these people are interested in you, because these people want to get all your customer information and resell it, and there is someone buying it. This is why you should get rid of the B2B portal.
2) B2B portal is using your information to market itself. To get traffic to their website, they need something called keywords. These are often your company name, email address, and telephone number always becomes. When someone searches for your company information from google, the B2B portal’s website is right after your company website, thus visitors go directly to their website, and they’re reselling this traffic for a good price.
3) B2B portal is doing something perplexing you. They mark the product to half the selling price and even as low as one dollar to get traffic and attention, when you actually want to buy, the price is very high. This is not important, counterfeit products are the best choices to sell on B2B portals because the suppliers don’t care about their reputation, it’s the reputation of the B2B portal, so anything they sell after they make money, they go. Or just change their name and continue to sell something else.
4) Top listed B2B platforms especially the giants are using big data to monitor everything you do include every click of your mouse and scroll of the screen, this is like installing a security camera in your home. You’re completely naked when you’re using them. They know what you want, they will suggest to you who paid them the most not the one who has the best product and prices.
