very creative Jason re: 150 ~ always innovative thinking on this site.. esp for a twitter addict myself - this is very interesting.. best with this! ps. Happy New Year '09 ~ looking very promising for RBC no doubt.
just a thought, is there a classified/marketplace section on this site where one can exchange, trade, barter, sell, post their products and services outside of going to the individual groups? if there is, is there a way one can post anonymously.
(i.e. webinars, cheat sheets, training materials/services, subscription services, etc) just to name a few..
A community site in the UK is ripe for the taking, it is something that I have wanted to do for some time now but I just don't have the expertise, I belive that if the site was set up to give lots of free information to the commuity to help them in their daily work I believe it would encourage them to attend the site more often and make it a genuine site for debate about the industry, so I suppose I am saying that if you partner with companies who are pledged to give help and advice for free to members (in the guise of selling products to them) in the fields of IT, HR, Legal, Accounting etc all the things a small business might need, then I believe that advertising revenue would follow. I have been a senior manager in recruitment for over 15 years and I know if done properly it would be a great site for ALL recruiters at any level. You could add advice on how to be a great consultant/Manager/Regional/Director/Owner and I would be happy to initially answer the recruitment questions posed on the site until a greop of specialists could be gathered. I also suggest a directory of companies for client to find the right ones, and an area where clients could moan about the industry when they have a problem, I have loads of ideas which were formulated while I was completing my MBA, I know they would be great only if a site like the one you have created was the backbone of the service.
