    #6 hi Lenzy :) why not just tell that ;) "we only can deliver within 50 miles of -name of the town/city/region/country etc.... lol :) and all the other people who can view your "post"/"article"/"product" etc again hahahah is great mouth-to-mouth promo if "they" liked what they saw/read.... heard..... and even if they don´t like "it" (?don´t know which product you mean) people will start talking ;) (and you can use hashtags too at several platforms to "encircle" your "wanted" "segment".... or draw the attention to a certain group/location and so on.... here at beBee hashtags ((sub) groups ;) won´t work, neither at LinkedIn.... Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Instagram, and ? have those "sub groups" so that´s all I know (for now ;) to give you a bit of "pollen" (Blütenstaub) to "collect" :) you are in charge of turning that into honey ;) lol :)

    This is a very helpful methodology, @Juan Imaz. Do you have any tips on how to apply this geographically? Specifically, I'm talking about businesses that have a product or service that they can only deliver within 50 miles or only in this region or that region. How does BeBee facilitate geography-based engagement for those businesses that can only service customers that are physically near them? It's great to be able to produce content for the world to see, but some of us need to engage the world "and especially people in this little corner of the world."

    I love it @Juan Imaz.

    Building relationships and connections with your customers based on interests is a huge benefit. By sharing common interests and learning more about each other you can strengthen your relationships which enable loyalty and referrals. Hives facilitate you in finding your potential customers. I love to learn from others.

    Shared to the beBee Cheat Sheet Hive where we collect all helpful posts like this one.

    About your statement re: Ambassadors and their job description. That's simple. We don't have one. We were selected because we promote beBee and help other Bees find their footing (wings?). Basically, we just keep doing what we did in the first place.

    If the Bees-in-Chief take exception to what we do, they can delist us. It's their brand. It's their choice.

    We are not told what to do or when to do it. We may get an email pointing out a particularly good post. We can support it or not as we see fit. I tweet some out, I ignore others. At that point, it's my brand, my choice.

    The only "special" thing about Ambassadors that I can think of has nothing to do with beBee.

    I created a Twitter account, @beBeeEmbassy where I collect and tweet Ambassadors' posts. It's just my way of furthering the cause using some excess capacity at https://www.myTweetPack.com

    The worst thing about being an ambassador is having to turn the other cheek when some T$%*$^*&% starts screaming, "BIAS!!!"

    To them I'd like to say . . .

    Are ambassadors biased? Really? You need to point it out? No poop, Sherlock. Of course, we're biased...if we didn't like and support beBee they wouldn't want us as ambassadors and we wouldn't want to be their ambassadors.
