“Your network is your net worth” – Porter Gale
It is true that networking is one of the strongest armors that will help you brave the tough competition and remain relevant in this fast paced digital world. If you believe that once you build a company your clients will automatically fall on your doorstep, any successful businessman will tell you otherwise. Building a strong business takes a lot of time and patience and networking with the right people at the right time can help you achieve your goals and keep you motivated.
This brings us to today’s topic – How can you utilise the ‘Community’ feature on GlobalLinker to build and strengthen your network?

Community feature on GlobalLinker
GlobalLinker, as the name suggests, is a platform committed towards making networking simple for small and medium sized businesses across the globe. The Community feature on GlobalLinker is specially curated to house all your GlobalLinker connections, invitations, messages and groups, all at one place.
Let us look at each of the features:
1. My Connections
‘My Connections’ on GlobalLinker is similar to your friends list on any of your social media handles. It shows the eBiz Cards of all the members you are connected with in an alphabetical order.
The next tab on the Community feature is Groups. Each Group is dedicated to one particular subject matter. There are various industry and domain specific groups you can join. You can even create one by clicking on the ‘CREATE GROUP’ button on the top right of the page.
The Groups feature is a great way to exchange knowledge in a particular industry or domain. You can join and share various groups like Digital Transformation, Architects and Interior Designers, Retailers association of India, Construction and Real Estate, WEBO Power-powering women entrepreneurs and business owners and so on. You can post your thoughts, articles or news in the groups you have joined. The ‘Recommended Groups’ feature lets you discover more groups that are created everyday on GlobalLinker. This way you can remain up-to-date on recent happenings and announcements across the world.
Invitations is where all new connection requests appear.
All the messages that you send to fellow members and all the messages that are received appear here.
You can access your 'Sent' and 'Trash' messages by clicking on the drop down arrow next to 'Inbox' as indicated in the image above.
