In last week’s blog, Social Media for B2B: Beyond LinkedIn, we highlighted the 4 most well-known social media networks for B2B marketers. This week, we’re sharing 4 B2B networks you may not know about…but could potentially benefit from.
Elixio.net is an exclusive social network similar to Google+ and Asmallworld. Elixio membership requires an invitation from an existing member. Elixio features social network services such as Forums, Geo specific events, Classifieds and Photo Sharing. Unlike similar networks, Elixio is a gated online community and the member-base is identified; meaning, the network does not allow anonymous or pseudonymous interactions.
Focus.com is a business-focused (primarily B2B) social networking platform and resource. Focus members can freely access expert research in diverse areas such as Information Technology, Sales, Marketing, Operations, Small Business, Sales and Human Resources. Members also can get their business questions answered by experts in the community.
MeetTheBoss.TV is an IPTV business channel for executives around the world. Covering 8 channels including Leadership, Sales, Innovation, Technology, Marketing, Strategy, Human Capital and Governance, the channel features a mixture of one-on-one interviews with Fortune 500 CEOs, business leaders and entrepreneurs, talking-heads programs and a Meet The Ninja leadership training portal. Members have access to interviews with industry leaders, comment boards, articles and an editor’s blog creating a dialogue between members.
Talkbiznow.com is a comprehensive interactive business networking site for business professionals and the B2B community. By displaying how each member is connected to any other member, it visualizes the small-world phenomenon. The purpose of this site is to allow professionals and small businesses to network, collaborate and promote themselves online within a web-based community using a variety of services, features and desktop tools. Talkbiznow offers user profile generation, business networking, web conferencing, voice conferencing and other common social networking features.
