To connect outside your community you can use "ConnectPlus"- these are invites you can send to people outside your community. Everyone starts out with 10 and these allow you to reach out to businesses outside of a 5-mile radius. Our focus on this site is local, so be sure to try and reach out to business owners in your community first and use these wisely!
With all that said- at the end of the day the best way to "expand your radius" is by inviting your contacts to Alignable because for every invitation you send out that gets accepted it gives you more Connect Plus invites- giving you a much easier and faster method to connect and grow your network beyond your local community.
If you have any further questions about Connect Plus connections, you can reach out to your Community Manager via the link below:
