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 liked minded businesses.
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.)
You can see my friend Janice Wald from Mostly Blogging below. People can comment and vote on each article that is accepted by the community.
How Biz Sugar Works
So you can submit yours or others post on the Biz Sugar Community. You are allowed up to 5 posts per day. Then people vote and can comment on the posts as well.
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.
