Online Networking Membership Soars As Business Owners Go ?Virtual?

UK business social network Ecademy has reported a surge in membership over the last quarter, fuelling speculation that offline networking is falling second place to the web as the most cost effective means of growing your business during the credit crunch.

Hailed as the only networking site designed specifically for business owners, Ecademy ( has reported that its membership has more than doubled over twelve months, and with the average time spent on the site up by over a third, its founder Penny Power believes this reflects an increasing confidence in utilising the web to build credible business connections, whilst keeping networking costs to a minimum.

?I?ve noticed a distinct decrease in attendees at many of the offline events I have attended in recent months as the battle to keep expenditure down during the credit crunch continues and many of the business owners I have been speaking to are seeing real, tangible results from their online networking activity?, explains Power.

Ecademy member Liz Harwood ( is one such member who has gained business through the Ecademy network and believes that its core strength is that all its members are of a certain calibre, with a similar way of thinking.

Harwood was astounded when she received orders for her recently published ?The Blessings Book? within just 2 minutes of placing a blog and online listing on Ecademy last week.

?My experience is that Ecademy operates likes a virtual dinner party. All the guests (members) seem to have a genuine interest in helping each other and this week?s order is testament to the success of this high calibre, professional social network in helping small businesses to flourish?.

?Online business networking is increasingly becoming an integral part of 21st Century business and utilising business social networking sites such as Ecademy and LinkedIn is by far the most cost effective way to gain new business, establish business partnerships and establish new friendships along the way?, adds Power.
