I heard about the Liverpool 08 Business Connect site recently and I’ve just registered for free. It appears to be a popular site with some 3700 organisations listed along with about 4600 individual members.
The aim of the site appears to be along the lines of a social networking site for people looking to do business in and around Liverpool (we’re over the water on The Wirral in Hoylake – home to the Open Golf in 2006 …what a fantastic event that was!). You can create your own profile page (here’s mine) and can search for other businesses and make contact. There’s supposed to be a members-only offer page too, though it’s currently missing.
I’ll let you know if I make any new contacts or drum up any business. Let me know if you’re also listed by the way – leave a comment here or get in touch.
