New FREE Social Media / Online Business Networking Platform for Businesses in Wales

Business Network Wales has launched a new online business networking and business support platform for the Welsh Business Community.

 New Online Social Networking Platform
The new Business Network Wales Business Networking and Business Support platform has being launched to the welsh business community in February 2016 and this platform will change the way that businesses in the Welsh business community, and beyond Wales, will do business with each other.

Business Networking / Social Networking Platform for Businesses in Wales

The new innovative Business Network Wales platform will offer it’s members the ability to network with each other in an open networking forum as well as to market, advertise and do business with each other.

Business Support Community Platform for Businesses in Wales

Members will also be able to learn from one another as well as use the various business support and business growth documents and integrated business support services in order to help improve their own businesses.

How to Join Business Network Wales?

To join the Business Network Wales business community system there are three different levels of subscription membership with the first level being FREE (with some restricted access) for business startups and those thinking about getting in to business.  The second level is an Enterprise level for just £150 per year and the third level is a Business level (with unrestricted access) for just £250 per year (to see what you get in each level please follow the link to the Business Network Wales plan comparison page).

More info…

As already mentioned the two main purposes of the Business Network Wales platform is to provide open business networking online as well as to provide online business support to businesses at any level including startups and SME’s as well as large companies and group corporate companies:

Online Business Networking 

The Business Network Wales platform has been specifically designed with business networking and online business networking in mind so it does not come with the usual contact restrictions and limitations of rival social media and contact/connection building platform systems such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.  Some of these other platforms restrict the building up of contacts and connections beyond the people that you already know or have met in the “Real World” however the Business Network Wales platform actively encourages you to connect and more importantly do business with new people that you meet within the new business social networking system.  The only restriction on our business networking system is that you can only contact and connect with businesses at the same level of access to the system and below.

Online Business Support including Business Support Documentation

The Business Network Wales platform has again specifically been built and design with business support in mind so it has many elements inbuilt which can help with supporting your business.  The main areas of business support are the many business support documents contained within the cutting edge document vault (including business startup support  documents, business growth support documents and business improvement documents) as well as the many negotiated business support services and the many business advertising opportunities.

Business Support Document Vaults

Free Online Business Support Documents inc. Startup guides

The business support document vaults contains over 5,000 Crown produced “Business Support Documents”.  These documents are Free to download and save on the standard PDF document system.  Access to the documents is restricted to the level of access you have to the system.  If you have the top “Business Level” that you can access all 5,000 business support documents, with the “Enterprise level access members being restricted to just over 2,000 of the documents, whilst entry level “FREE” members have access to 500 of the business support documents.  The majority of the documents at all levels are aimed at business growth and business support whilst a large proportion of the 500 documents aimed at the entry level “FREE” membership level are business startup documents ideal for business startups, new businesses and people thinking about starting a business.

Business Support Services

The owners of the Business Network Wales system, Private Social Platforms, have negotiated a number of business support services aimed at helping all levels of businesses to improve their business.

These business support services offer excellent opportunities to help and support all types of businesses in many different areas from Business Marketing and Business Cost Reduction Services to Raising Business Funds and Business Financing.

Example Business Support Service

Business Cost Reduction Services

Members of the Business Network Wales community platform can benefit from the support services already negotiated and available as well as the opportunity to put forward your business as a potential partner to the system if you feel that you may have a business support service suitable to be considered.

Business Advertising Opportunities

The purpose built system has a number of built in business advertising opportunities including the ability to “offer business services” and “reply to people requesting business services” via the “Business Exchange” section as well as “Banner Advertising” via every page on the system.

Web Design Wales

Other Business Support Services

In addition to the business support document vaults and the business support services and business advertising services the Business Network Wales platform also allows business to raise funds via a “Crowd Funding” feature, sell tickets and market events via the “Event” feature and set up and join (open or closed) groups to allow better interaction and communication via the “Group” feature.

If you are part of the Welsh business community or you are someone looking for online business support or online business networking then this new Business Network Wales “Welsh business community platform” is for you.

So what are you waiting for.  Sign up today and start benefiting from the many features and benefits available to you from within the system and whilst your at it, invite all your friends, colleagues, partners, customers and suppliers to join you on the system for the benefit of being able to connect with them online as well as to help reduce your own subscription fee, via the inbuilt discount referral scheme.
