NEW: Biggerplate Community Marketplace!
While the entire world seems to be on holiday in August, we've been working hard on a few big projects here at Biggerplate, and a couple of little ones too! This week, we're excited to announce the launch of our new 'Community Marketplace' that's now live on Biggerplate.com!
Over many years, we have met with huge numbers of our community members, and learned a huge amount about the incredible range of businesses that our members own, manage, or work within. Mind maps are helping to start, grow, and manage businesses in incredibly diverse industries all around the globe, and there are thousands of startups and small businesses represented in the community at Biggerplate.com.
One of our key goals is to share the stories of how people around the world are using mind mapping to improve their working, as can be seen by many of the great 'Mind Maps in Action' articles on this blog over the years. However, we wanted to do more to help promote and shout about these great businesses, and the innovative ways they are using mind mapping, either in the delivery of their services, or in the behind-the-scenes organisation of their business. Well now we have a better solution: our new Community Marketplace!
The Marketplace is a very simple directory of businesses, where any of our members can list their organisation within one ofcategories, to raise awareness of their brand, drive traffic to their webasite, and (hopefully) secure new business from other members of the Biggerplate community! Listing your business on the Marketplace costs just $19.99 per year, but comes with two important conditions:
- You must be a registered member of Biggerplate to list your business
- You must have shared at least one mind map on our mind map library
(All submissions will be manually checked and approved)
These two conditions are intended to ensure that we create a Marketplace that genuinely represents members of the community, and (most importantly) represents businesses that are using mind mapping in some form. Our aim is to reveal more of these innovative businesses and their stories, while simultaneously creating a thriving internal market on Biggerplate where our members can discover (and hopefully support) the great businesses that our members are working hard on around the world!
We're a small business (6 people in our team), and we know how hard it can be to get a little extra visibility in the world without paying huge sums of money to achieve it. A simple Marketplace listing on Biggerplate is (we hope) a nice and simple way for you to get a little more visibility among our large and vibrant community, and drive web visitors and potential business to your organisation! Whether you're a sole trader, startup company, established business, or something else, we'll be delighted to welcome you to the new Biggerplate Community Marketplace, and we look forward to learning about your business!
