If you want to share tips and tricks from your business to help other small businesses out there, visit the Biz Sugar community. I’ve been using their platform for years to learn and engage with other like-minded businesses.
However, if you want to learn from other small business owners joining the Biz Sugar small business community is a must for you!
I’ve met small business owners from around the world there and we have helped each other out online over the years. (Inspire To Thrive has been a member there since 2012.)
The New Biz Sugar Small Business Advisors Directory
Recently, Biz Sugar started a small business advisors directory for people to find services and products from small businesses.
Below you can see the categories on the left-hand side of the website to choose from.
If you need some guidance choosing an advisor? Or, not finding what you need easily? Join our Mastermind Community and message our Community Manager, Gail Gardner.
However, there are many different categories you can join. For example, there is real estate, marketing, SEO, building your online biz, podcasting, and social media to name a few.Recently, Biz Sugar started a small business advisors directory for people to find services and products from small businesses.

How Biz Sugar Works
You can submit your blog or others’ small business blog posts on the Biz Sugar Community. You are allowed up to 5 blog posts per day. Then people vote and can comment on the posts as well.
The most popular blog posts show up on the top of the home feed.
However, you can view them by the most popular or the most recent posts. I like looking at them both ways. Sometimes I like to know what is popular and other times I want to read the most recent content.
Oftentimes, others will click on the link to read the articles which are on your website. It can drive targeted traffic to your website!
Not only that but sometimes you may be featured on Small Biz Trends as well.It can drive targeted traffic to your website! #BizSugar Click To Tweet
Filling Out Your Bio
Be sure to fill out your bio along with your business blog or website link. People can follow you and friend you as well on the network – just like most other types of social networks.
If you have been online for a while you may recognize some of the Biz Sugar community members. You can friend others on the network too just as most other social media sites offer.
Generating Traffic on Social Media
That website tends to drive even more traffic to mine as readers check out the articles there and come over to my other website.
They also do Facebook live events for the community and they tweet consistently.
