In help you pick the best online networking group for you, consider these points first:

  • membership cost - free groups offer the best value
  • accessibility - do you need to login, leave messages for people or can you chat in real time within a Facebook group?
  • the type of support the group's administrators offer - a well run networking group has strong and knowledgeable business professionals at it's helm

  • are there opportunities for members to learn new skills and knowledge from experts within the group?
  • can you share with others about your business and the way you do things?
