You knew it had to happen at some point. Yes, Facebook is the social media giant, and your business as well as other businesses like yours will likely continue to use it, but something had to give. So many interests, coming at you from all directions…it can get a little crazy if you’re in real estate, banking, insurance or other financial industries and are interested in connecting with others like yourself. You know, the ones who speak the “language”?
Enter Glozal. Glozal is a social media website geared specifically towards financial industries and the professionals who manage them. According to their website, “GLOZAL is the premier professional network in Real Estate, Accounting, Banking, Capital Markets, Financial Services, Insurance, Investment Banking, Investment Management, Venture Capital and Private Equity.”
Why would you want to use Glozal? Behind every website, every phone number, every listing in every glossy real estate magazine, is a person. A real, flesh and blood person who shares some of the same passions that you do. The connections you make will allow you to build both your business and theirs. You could think of Glozal as a “world wide” water cooler, where you share ideas, collaborate with others to accomplish your goals, or simply “talk shop” and have a few laughs about the business that only others like yourself would understand.
Looking for a virtual assistant, a business partner or financial opportunities? Glozal allows users to create an elaborate profile, where they can join groups, showcase their talents, advertise listings, post to their blog and share photos and videos. Want to tweet something? You can do that right from your home page, so that you can continue reading through your news feed without missing a beat!
If you’re interested in networking with others who share your same interests, building your business through making quality connections, then take a minute and check out the site, but be warned…it could get as addicting as “Farmville!”
