A few people have asked me what I’ve been up to, so I thought I’d blog about it.
In the past few weeks I’ve been working with BT on their new project – BT Tradespace.
BT Tradespace is potentially very powerful new business network that firms all over the world can plug into and find new customers and connect with other businesses. It’s based on businesses making their own profiles and joining different communities. Think MySpace without the angst-ridden Emo kids. And as is normal on sites like this, building a page and profile is very straightforward.
It’s based around the philosophy that business is about conversations. You can talk to the world using a blog and podcasts as well as share pictures and information about the products and services you are selling. Buyers can contact you directly, request further details or click through to your website.
To give you a sense of what’s out there, here are some of the businesses that have already signed up.
BT Tradespace only launched last week and it’s still in beta: so very much a work in progress. Right now it’s free to join so take a look. As it grows it will become a hub for buyers and businesses. And by aggregating content from all sorts of companies under one roof, it should hopefully start to get good traction in the search engines.
