The Perfect Place to Bee
I have been meaning to write this article for a long time now. It has been over 2 years that I have been on beBee. There have been times when I have been an active participant on the platform, producing honey, sharing buzzes, and then there have been times when I have been more of a bee who reads and shares all the wonderful content on various other platforms. But whatever my status has been on beBee, it has always been enriching. I have always yearned to see more people benefit from this platform the way I have and so have many others.
The first time I came across beBee, it took me some time to realize the concept of the affinity-networking platform. I soon figured out the actual message beBee was trying to convey to me, back then: "Create Your Personal Brand." How could I not know about this? It was an excellent way to tell people more about me, my interests, my way of thinking, that would help them understand me better as a professional.
This was extremely crucial for me back then. I had just started my journey as an entrepreneur. As we all know, it is not an easy one. With a five-month-old to care for, networking and spending long hours at work for not something I could really afford. It was then that beBee opened up a world of opportunities for me. It gave me:
- Like-minded fellow bees, distinguished in their own fields of work, who are nothing short of inspirational
- A platform that doesn't restrict posts and buzzes just to professional topics, there were stories, poems, thoughts and ideas circulated at all times
- For every post I wrote, I received so much support and encouragement, a currency beyond my imagination, that turned into the most fruitful investment into my business: Confidence
In today's date, for all new bees and to the ones who are yet to be bees, I wish the same success I received, thanks to the beBee community.
If you are a new bee and you don't know what you should write about or how to get your content out there for more people to see, I suggest clubbing beBee with other social media platforms, particularly Twitter and LinkedIn. Make sure you add your social media handles to your beBee profile, so fellow bees can easily tag you when they are sharing your content on beBee or any other social media platform.
Join the beBee group on LinkedIn. If you have written something that you would like more people to read, share it on the beBee group on LI and bring it to the notice of others in the community, who can share these articles further. In the age of data and information, true power lies in effective dissemination of content and this is something we can achieve with each other's help through the beBee community.
I am thrilled to announce that I have been recently appointed the manager of the beBee group on LinkedIn by David B. Grinberg, and it would make me very happy to see the group grow further and thrive on LinkedIn. Let's combine business branding and personal branding and create a superpower brand to reckon with.
Some bees who have been with us for a long time now already have a 'join group' request in their notification box. In case you cannot find it, please head to https://www.linkedin.com/groups/8562404/and join the group. I can’t wait to see you all there. See you soon and let's keep buzzing.
