Finding other Alignable members to connect with is easy! The three main ways you can find businesses are the following:
You can find other members by searching for businesses, services, events, and even Advice forum questions.
You can find the search bar in the top left corner of the screen and you can use it to search for any business on Alignable, no matter where they are located. You can also search for the services, events and Q&A questions that members post.
The example below demonstrates what the search page looks like when you search for Video. It generates a list of the nearest businesses that are relevant to that word.
On the left-hand side of the search page, there is a list of filters that can be used to narrow down search results. You can filter by:
- Business category
- Reputation (Recommendations)
- Relationship (First or Second Degree Connections).
For example, to filter by business category, enter the name of the industry you want to search by. If you wanted to filter by video creators, type in Video Creator and choose the option from the suggested dropdown. Once chosen, it will automatically narrow your search results.
The Ideal Customer and About Us section found on every Alignable profile feature clickable tags that generate a list of businesses to connect with. If you wanted to find businesses that fit your Ideal Customer description, add the appropriate tag to your Ideal Customer section, and then just click on it! From there, you will be brought to an automated list of businesses to connect with.
