Tools to design your own level of engagement

Industry Member profiles give your beer-oriented business an outgoing voice in the BeerLovers community, providing a means of keeping enthusiasts informed and up-to-date.

This outgoing voice can be configured to echo on other social platforms, so that a single update will reach multiple communities and save you time in getting your message out to your dedicated followers as well as a broader audience.

Within the BeerLovers community your level of engagement can be optionally increased by adding and configuring social applications designed to enable multi-directional communications. For example, our Discussions application is similar to a traditional forum but relates only to your business and can be configured as to who can see the discussions and who can initiate discussion topics.

Additional modes of engagement are being developed to supplement your communications: photo albums... blogs... events management... and other applications specially designed for beer lovers.
