We are so excited to launch our member-2-member collaboration tool, we promised it and now it is here. If you are a Virtual or BizBuddy member, you will be receiving your invitation to our very own collaboration tool.
So what does this mean? well this is a way to engage with each other, join groups of interest, set up groups, ask for help, provide support, join events or catch ups or set up your own, and create private collaboration workspaces to share files and tasks for any projects that you may be working on with others.
You can private or group message each other and set up your notifications so you get a digest of whats going on in your area of interest and in general.
You can create your company and your personal profiles and list and be found by your skills etc, and connect with interesting people.
We are still working through the API integration which will make it a single sign on for our members as we grow and we are waiting for an major update so we can launch our mobile app version.
So how does this work? Well, if you engage with it and make it your go-to of choice, share interesting content, set up engaging discussion groups and catch ups (even a coffee catch up) this all helps build engagement, relationships and collaboration. As we grow this will become more dynamic and more features and benefits will emerge.
What do you have to do? when you you get your invitation link, you will also get access to documents that will help you set up, they are also to be found under Member Resources for logged in Members.
- Set up your personal profile and include some interesting stuff about you besides your skills, your interests, hobbies, what you are looking for or who you would like to connect with, what you can help with. Don’t forget a picture – people like to engage with a real person – so dont be shy!
- Set up your company -with your logo etc and all your details, and if you have other members in your company they can join as virtual members to and can be included. So do not forget to add them.
- Introduce your self in the group and say hi, join any groups of interest to you and create groups that engage others
- Don’t forget to save the link to favourites on you Browser and try and keep your password and sign in the same as your BizBuddyHub membership (anyhow make sure you can remember it :))
Have fun, enjoy the environment and make an effort to engage, the more interesting content you share the better, Don’t share advertising posts as generally these are not appealing, rather use the environment as a comfy hangout space with like-minded friends and lead with being you, not your business.
Look out for the email and have fun 🙂 – If you are not yet a BizBuddy we would love you to join us
