How does SBBA work?

The thousands of members that have joined SBBA enable us to negotiate group discounts on behalf of all members. Even though members work in various industries, all small business owners have the same basic needs. We leverage those needs for the greater good of all our members.

We maintain a vast network of Authorized Benefit Providers (ABPs) that provide benefits and services to valued SBBA members. We carefully evaluate and scrutinize ABPs to ensure every member receives that value they deserve. We also work with various Authorized Resellers who sell the SBBA membership to their customers or include our offerings to their customers. Our staff and Member Service Specialists take pride in serving our valued members.

How can SBBA help my business?

Small business owners work very hard and perform a diverse range of important tasks every day. Time is one of your most precious commodities. Starting out can be challenging, and it's easy to become overwhelmed with the responsibilities of "doing it all" and "wearing many hats".

Many new small business owners also experience feelings of isolation, and they may not know where to turn for help. For many small business owners, it's this uncertainty about how to get started that prevents them from achieving success.

That's where we come in. We're here to help. We've done a lot of the work for you, so you don't have to "reinvent the wheel." We allow you focus on doing what you do best-running your business. We do all the legwork in providing you with necessary and helpful benefits and services to help you succeed. [more]

How much does SBBA cost?

Members usually pay a low, one-time enrollment fee of $199. After a 30-day, risk-free trial period members pay ongoing membership dues of $29.95 per month. Certain benefits and services have discounted fees that have been negotiated for members only.

Does SBBA have a guarantee?

Yes. We offer a 30-day 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee. Members may cancel at anytime with no commitments or long-term obligations. We strive to provide real value to every member. Members have our commitment that we will do our very best to help them succeed.

How can SBBA help me save time and money?

The concept is fairly straightforward. You can either spend prohibitive amounts of time and money to track down services, discounts, and resources on your own, or you can let SBBA do all that for you. One of the most important things a small business owner needs to do is delegate and get help. This can be a very difficult thing to learn. Without proper delegation you can work endless hours and still not accomplish your goals. Sometimes, especially when starting a business, there is no one to delegate to so you have to do it yourself. And this can easily become a habit.

SBBA is the perfect place to go for help because we make it easier for you to focus on your business allowing you to "delegate" other tasks to us. We provide the help you want and need. For most small business owners, time is money. Usually more time equals more money and less time equals less money. Let us help you get more of both. We save you time and frustration because we constantly work to provide the best benefits, tools, and resources to help you. We save you money because we continually negotiate and locate deals and discounts for members. [more]

How can SBBA help me to remain competitive?

You've repeatedly heard about small businesses that can't compete with larger companies. The buying power and seemingly endless resources of large corporations can be threatening and intimidating for small business owners. Sure, technology and the information-age can help, but they can also be a double-edged sword. On one hand, technology allows small businesses to appear larger and compete more effectively with big businesses. On the other hand, technology can displace businesses that do not stay competitive or adequately serve their customers.

SBBA is the answer because we've done the negotiating and much of the hard work for you. You can effectively compete by teaming up with thousands of other small businesses to take advantage of our group type discounts and specialized benefits tailored for the unique needs that small business owners require.

How can SBBA help my business grow?

Like plants that require consistent sunlight, water, and nurturing in order to continue growing, small businesses also need ongoing attention and development. You may be the very best in your given field, but if potential customers don't know about your business and feel compelled to purchase from you, your business will struggle or die.

Our experience teaches us that small business owners are usually very good at what they do, but they often struggle with the details of running a business. No surprises there. Why? Very few have been taught or trained with business fundamentals. Business owners do what they enjoy and what they are experienced in, but struggle where they have little experience or confidence. Many small businesses are not good at sales, marketing, and promotions. Others struggle with finances and proper management of the business income and expenses [agreements, contracts, government requirements] and other operational matters.

SBBA's small business experts can help your business grow. Just plug into our services and benefits. We are available to help you with many resources and proven techniques. But don't just take our word for it. Give us a try. You'll love the results. [more]

Can I get a tax deduction for membership?

Yes. You should always check with a tax advisor or CPA regarding taxes. But all membership fees and dues associated with SBBA are fully tax deductible as a necessary business expense. Business expenses offset the business revenues that reduce net income or profit. Taxes are based upon the net income of the business.

What insurance carriers does SBBA use?

We work with all major insurance carries in nearly every state. Our insurance specialists are also licensed in most states. You can have the confidence of knowing SBBA provides the very best possible insurance benefits for small business owners.
