Go Connect! @ Small Business Can

Supported by

Founded by Ron Immink & Fionan Murray, the site is divided into 4 sections.

A Blog

Some great articles already included & I like the fact that they actively encourage their members to submit content.

The Community

This is where you build your SBC profile & can see what other people are up to. There  is a status bar feature, you can set up groups, manage connections & upload video.

The Forum

The forum is the most active part on the site, members can go ask for advice and/or answer questions. Currently conversations are taking place under the headings:

  • Introductions
  • General
  • Marketing & Sales
  • Money
  • Management
  • Motivation

The Growth Centre

In the Growth Centre you will find a series of case studies, articles, templates and tools across a range of business topics. These artcles are further sub-divided by which stage of growth your business is at.


I joined the site a few weeks back & something I like is that you can log in using your Facebook account. There are some small issues around html & comments, which can be a little awkward @ times but I’m sure these will be sorted in due course. Overall Small Business Can has a vibrant & active business community, the team are supportive & thorough community builders and so far it is proving to be a worthwhile business networking exercise.

If you are a member of Small Business Can or any other online business networking sites, Please share your experiences & thoughts?

Thank you for reading,
