During the holiday season, many small businesses experience a reduction in work or planned vacations.  This is a great time to launch or update your professional online profiles, network with new and old colleagues, and get updated on your field.   


If you haven’t joined, check out Verizon Professional Networking, launched in April 2010, this community recently reached more than 10,000 subscribers. Developed as part of Verizon’s Small Business Center website, this powerful resource connects thousands of business professionals in a diverse number of industries, including finance, manufacturing, and technology, who want to:

  • Network with other industry professionals;
  • Create and search business profiles;
  • Participate in forums, polls, and more.


Registered users are also able to personalize their home pages. The Verizon Professional Networking community is open to everyone – even non-Verizon customers.  This is a great viral community to find other small business owners or professionals… perhaps you need the services of an accountant, or want to team up with a similar business to buy in bulk or want to barter services… this is a free platform for you to network.


Additionally, Verizon’s Professional Networking area and Small Business Center Forums  provide answers to the challenges and questions faced in starting and running a small business.   Some of the discussions included in the Verizon forums are:

    • Starting a Small Business
    • Small Business Management
    • Small Business Advertising & Marketing
    • Find Small Business Resources


Sharing expertise with others in the community is not just a way to assist someone else, but to build credibility and develop business relationships. If you seek additional insights to help you run your business better check out some of the free resources we offer including past blog posts from small business experts and the free webinars brought to you from Verizon.


So, if you haven’t joined the professional networking community, sign up – it’s free!  If you are a member and haven’t updated your profile lately or networked with others, take a little time to do that.  A few minutes invested can position you for a progressive year ahead! 


Click to register or sign into Verizon Professional Networking.



Have a Happy New Year from the Verizon Small Business Center team!
