Leads, sales and profits are the business focus goals of most all companies. Many business professionals know the famous LinkedIn business site to be one that professionals use and frequent often to find relevant contacts and leads for their particular industries. Everyone from entrepreneurs to small business owners and even Fortune 500 companies have found the site to be extremely valuable and useful in their business pursuits. So, is the newly formed social business website at LinkedBees.com going to deflect any attention from LinkedIn?
LinkedBees listed its main goal on the site to create a space for people in business to gather and establish business relationships. They thoroughly promote the idea of true networking in that professionals can and should establish connections that can be pursued both offline and online. There are no costs or conditions to meet to take advantage of their resources, therefore LinkedBees feels confident that their services will be very successful among business professionals.
Some of the LinkedBees business services on the social site include:
- A free content creation and management platform for members (use WordPress and BuddyPress).
- Customizable features and tools like auctions, project bids, classified lists, a business directory and free, unlimited member sites.
- They’ll also provide additional products including single page websites (online resumes and virtual business cards) and product show-casts for registered users.
This new social network promises users a more focused, direct business mode of operations that’s different and more targeted to the business professional. There’s no photo sharing or status updates, but the focus is on creating referrals, promoting products or services, finding leads and establishing and growing a client base for members. Donald McIntyre, LinkedBees founder, is aiming to make this new network more business oriented and focused on helping online (and offline) professionals grow their businesses.
