Connection credits are what you can use to introduce yourself to other business owners who are members of Alignable. You use them when you send a connection request to another member business. It's your gateway to start meaningful relationships with businesses that could send referrals to you now and in the future.
Connection credits are put in place to incentivize members to make the most out of the connections that they do make, rather than "spray and pray". While connection credits do not roll over on a month-to-month basis, you'll get more credits on the renewal of your membership or billing period every month.
