Conversing with others is a great way to move a business forward. Individuals who interact with others in their industry find doing so helps to build and grow their businesses. Unfortunately, finding people in a similar venture isn’t always easy, and competition may prevent certain business owners from being willing to work with others. With the help of the internet, a person can find others to connect with in very little time, however. Following are some free discussion groups every small business owner should look into.
Head to Facebook to check out the Small Hustle Community group. Here, individuals find a community that already has hundreds of members and continues to grow. The discussions are lively, and participants may not only ask and answer questions but also provide advice. Members from the Smart Hustle team join the conversation regularly, and Ramon Ray hosts weekly live video sessions.
Small Business Forum
For those looking for a larger community, the Smart Business forum is the place to visit. With more than 100,000 participants, this forum has information that can be of help to a business owner of any size. While on the site, be sure to browse the many different sections, including Your Small Business, Marketing, and Financial and Legal. A new participant finds he or she can easily join the forum, begin asking questions, and dole out advice based on personal experiences.
Startup Nation has been described as the site designed to help a business owner build and grow their venture. The community section features a forum with subsections, including ones for Doing Business on the Web and Sales and Public Relations. Furthermore, the subsections are broken down into various topics, making it easy for a business owner to find a question they need to be answered to see if others are already talking about it. Participants may also answer the questions of others to further the conversation.
It’s time to come join the discussion. With a wealth of online discussion groups to choose from, every business owner will be able to find one they feel comfortable with and that meets their needs. As the business grows, a business owner may also wish to look into paid groups and LinkedIn small business groups. The more people a business owner networks with, the more information he or she has on had when advice is needed. That’s always good.
