Ecademy

Does anyone use this? It was recommended by Amanda from Truly Ace to me and I've signed up as a guest member for my free 14 days. I wondered if anyone had any experiences to post maybe help me decide if I want to continue past the trial period. TIA

I think it is very good!! I would turn of the notification thing that lets you know people have looked at your profile, whilst you are in the trial period as it can get a little annoying when you come to open your emails.

Met some good people on there, people I class as good friends now and whom I have been on holiday with!! Good laugh!!

Works for me

Ecademy works for me but doesn't for others. I think it depends on your profession, your ability to raise your profile and network online and how much you are willing to put into it.

I've invested a lot of time in it and it has paid me back many many times over.

I use Network 2 Connect which is a similar idea but I find a little cosier!

the blogs feature is nice if you have somethign to say (though they don't like you to post adverts... but somethign useful that may lead to a sale is OK!)

.... and then when you're there make sure you connect to me by looking at my profile and clicking "add to contacts"

Ecademy was a touch confusing and just seemed too big.

ecademy

Ecademy does work well, but you need patience and to put quite a bit of time in to make it work.

The first few months there I just spent chatting to people and getting to know a few people - all interesting stuff but no business.

Plus of course the place is 90% web designers and life coaches, so it is hard to stand out when you are one of very many people all competing for what business there is on offer.

Cheers

Dan
