And even more …. Sticky Handshake Features
The Sticky Handshake is an online community of small business owners who want to make real connections with other small business owners, and to help each other grow. We are dedicated to small businesses because small businesses are different.
When you join, you create a profile for your business, telling people who you are and what you do. That means if someone else in the community needs your services, they can look you up and make a connection. You can add absolutely heaps of information on your profile page: a video, different work categories, and all your contact details including skype, your social media, and more.
We actively encourage collaboration, especially between local businesses. If you meet another member in person, you can give each other a Sticky Handshake. No, that doesn’t mean you’ll need to go and wash your hands! Sticky Handshakes tell other members that you’ve actually met each other. It proves you’re real and responsive, and that you’re active within our community.
Once you’ve done business, if someone is happy with your work, they can give you a Sticky Accolade. This tells other members that you’re great to deal with and increases your chances of getting other members to become your customers. In return, you can become a customer of members who offer services or products that you need.
If you refer The Sticky Handshake to other small business owners, they can give you Sticky Handshakes and Sticky Accolades, and you can do the same for them. That way, you’ll help each other to grow and attract more customers. The more active you are and the more connections you make, the more customers you’ll attract and the more your business will grow.
There’s also an online forum where you can ask questions, share ideas, and get to know other members.
All of these features, plus many more to come…
