American Express has launched an online forum as an added value service for small business owners, brilliant Idea to continue to build brand awareness and loyalty.

It seems like the moderator should have guided the conversation a bit more. Perhaps set up scenarios regarding networking.
“Has someone you did not know approach you successfully?”

Once they got into the Q & A Section then they were highly interesting but again, not as focused on networking as they should have been regarding the topic.
The real comedy came from some guy our of Reno Nevada who was a Negative Sorter. So anything anyone said regarding advice he would find some way of giving an addendum to that advice. Or criticizing the forum, It was hysterical. Note to self. I don’t want this guy on my team.

So anyway join Open Forum on America Express, Check It Out.
