When appropriate, I always advise my clients to join the Forbes Business Council. Forbes Councils is an invitation-only organization where top executives and entrepreneurs can build professional skills, gain connections, and increase visibility on Forbes.com. The council you are a part of is carefully chosen to ensure that you gain maximum benefit from the community as a whole.
Being a part of Forbes Councils provides exclusive opportunities to publish on Forbes.com, setting you apart as a bold voice in your industry. This is very different from the advertorial approaches of days gone by. The Forbes Councils model has been so successful that the Community Company has launched a similar program with local business journals in cities nationwide, called the Business Journals Leadership Trust, as well as programs with Newsweek, Rolling Stone, and Fast Company.
Joining a council also gives you access to exclusive events and networking opportunities with other members. You will have chances to connect with industry thought leaders and share best practices within your field. All of this will help improve your day-to-day business operations and put you on the path to long-term success.
The Advantages of Joining Forbes Business Councils
There are many advantages to joining the Forbes Business Council. Here are just a few of them:
You will have opportunities to contribute articles to Forbes.com – This is a great way to show yourself as an expert in your industry and get your name out there. When prospective clients see that you have been featured on Forbes.com, they will be impressed and more likely to want to do business with you.
You will have access to exclusive events – As a member of Forbes Business Councils, you will be invited to exclusive events where you can network with other members and learn from industry thought leaders. These events are not open to the general public, so this is a great way to gain valuable insights that you can use in your business.
You will be part of a carefully curated community – When you join a council, you can be sure that you are surrounded by other high-quality businesses and entrepreneurs who can help you take your business to the next level.
If you are looking for an organization that can help you build professional skills, gain connections, and increase visibility for your business, then I highly recommend that you join the Forbes Business Council. This invitation-only organization provides exclusive opportunities that you won't find anywhere else. If you need help, I’m happy to make an introduction.
