Are you using Referral Key?

This entry was posted Saturday, 4 June, 2011 at 12:15 pm

I recently got invited to join a new online business networking tool by a few different, trusted connections in my network. I do find it overwhelming, sometimes, keeping up with all the various different profiles and tools there are out there and I wasn’t sure about jumping on this particular bandwagon, but…

I decided to take the leap, and what I like about Referral Key is that it is a business referral tool, not another social networking time sucker disguised as a networking tool. Thus far, it seems easy to set up, easy to use, and easy to see the  value. It allows you to build a short, business focused profile (including company info, clients you are looking for, and ratings)  in order to be able to start accepting and making business referrals. You can even offer rewards for referrals (cash, or products).

What I like, too, is that RK seems to have avoided the trap that LinkedIn et al have fallen into – trying to be like Facebook and ending up cluttered and overwhelming.

I’m intrigued to see what it yields and will be staying on this particular bandwagon for the forseeable future…

You can find my profile at www.referralkey.com/meerkat. Let me know what your thoughts are on this new tool. Will you be joining me?

    Thanks for the “review”. Was having the same doubts about jumping on another online tool but sounds like it’s worth a look!

    I would definitely check it out, Juliette. I’m interested to see what it yields referral wise, so the jury is still out… but I also figured it was worth investigating! 🙂
