Badges, We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Badges
Except when badges are really cool and they help increase visibility and get you business, then badges are very cool. Biznik highlights member status with these colorful badges. Here is a list of the current members that have attained each one of these badges and what the badge means (and how you can get one!)
181 members have the Expert Badge. To earn Expert status, a minimum of 4 of the business-related articles you author must be selected by Biznik for inclusion in our general Articles section of the site while maintaining a rating by the Biznik community of 8 or above. Get published!
There are currently 11 Welcome Posse members. The Welcome Posse are Biznik members who know the ropes and who can help you get a leg up on making the most out of your Biznik experience. They are volunteers and choose to welcome new members because they value this community. If you have questions about how Biznik works, this is a good person to ask! To date, 11,050 members have been welcomed to Biznik by a Welcome Posse member, the first member being welcomed on April 16, 2010.
980 members donned the Event Host Badge in 2010. Event hosts contribute to the community by hosting Biznik Events such as workshops and business networking socials. A “Biznik Event” is one that has been selected for publication to the main calendar. The badge displays the number of Biznik Events that were attended by 3 or more people. Host an event!
There are 10 Ambassadors. Biznik Ambassadors are energetic cultivators of the Biznik community in areas where Biznik has not yet established a presence. They have demonstrated a level of enthusiasm and commitment to the Biznik community that sets them apart. If you are interested in being a Biznik Ambassador, drop us line: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to all the amazing community members who have made this year engaging, thoughtful and exciting. The comments in Biz Talk, the articles and in the event discussions have enlightened and educated hundreds of thousands of people in 2010.
