Heard Around The Water Cooler

Jun 16, 2010
Posted by Maureen Petron -- Have you clicked on the “Water Cooler” tab in the navigation yet?

Why not? You’re missing out on a great opportunity to promote your products and services to other NASE Members, network, and support fellow micro-business owners.

Similar to other social networks like Facebook or LinkedIn that you may already be familiar with, the Water Cooler is a community made by and for NASE Members. It’s a place where you can come to advertise your business to other NASE Members, find a fellow NASE Member in your area whose design (or plumbing or photography) skills you need or simply ask questions and bounce ideas off of other small business owners.

With over 200 users on the Water Cooler now, we have a great cross-section of the membership --albeit, admittedly heavy in the “Michael’s” and accountants!

A few members have started or imported their blogs, like Keith, Sherry, Katrina, and Bryan. They write about their businesses, their inspiration, their tips and their questions. You should check them out.

There are also groups formed by geographic location (such as Austin, Oklahoma City and Washington, DC), by profession (like this one for accountants) and to offer special deals to NASE Members for your products and services.

Don’t miss this opportunity to network with your fellow micro-business owners. Visit the NASE Water Cooler, and login in the upper right hand corner with your NASE Web account. Introduce yourself, and start promoting your business.
