Disillusioned by LinkedIn and Facebook?
Could we have some feedback on this please?
I am involved in the development of a new B2B online community. It will specifically sit between LinkedIn and Facebook ie it’s not going to be solely professional based a la LinkedIn nor is it going double as a platform for personal chit chat a la Facebook.
As such the new platform will appeal and be relevant to all industry and trade sectors and will be open to businesses across the globe. At the moment it’s called “Project Connect”. The actual name is currently with the creative team and it will be launched and headquartered in the UK or Europe later this year.
So we want to get some feedback from YOU the intended users!
The community will be membership based and options will include a monthly, annual or lifetime membership. The platform itself will provide an unlimited opportunity to communicate, incorporate a members’ directory and member only forums at least covering following:
Member Introductions Forum (including links to company websites, news, updates)
Marketing Forum (general news, advice, debate, questions)
Social Media Forum (general news, advice, debate, questions)
Help Required Forum (get feedback from the community re specific questions)
Services Offered Forum (who you are, what you do, link to company website, current offers etc)
Imagine being in at the beginning of LinkedIn or Facebook!!
LinkedIn is good for some businesses but not all. Likewise Facebook.
So what would make a brand new business community platform a no brainer for you?
This feedback is critical as the framework is still fluid enough to allow us to adopt what is important for YOU.
But why should you bother replying?
Well, initially we will be providing a limited number of free memberships so we can test the website and functionality. If you would like to be part of this exciting new platform please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can register your interest.
Once ready to go live there will be a massive social media campaign so the free memberships are likely to disappear within a few days. By registering your interest now we will give you the opportunity of taking up a free membership (on a first come first served basis) prior to the social media launch. So to be in at the beginning just send an email to email@example.com to register your interest.
Thank you in advance for your feedback.
