If you are choosing a business profile such as ‘Your Business Name’, your URL will become http://ihubbub.com/your-business-name.

Build your profile

1. Add yourself to our free directory giving a snapshot of your home working experience or details of your product or service.

A profile is a member’s profile and gives a full detailed view of all their content on site such as articles, directories etc. The directory is a listing where they add their business or themselves if they want other members to make contact.

2. Write up your news and keep updating frequently for maximum exposure.

3. Post your blog - if you dont have a blog on your own site, set up a profile to get a free blog on iHubbub! And then add a link to your iHubbub blog on your own website.

4. Connect with other members and engage with the home working world.

5. Join or start a group - if you can't find a group with like-minded interests why not start your own and invite your friends and colleagues?

6. Add your events or any events you think will benefit other members.

7. Check out our list of networks for offline networking in your area. And if you run a network or if you know of someone who does, add them to iHubbub so our visitors and members can pop along to your networking groups and networking events.

8. Post your articles that may be of interest to iHubbub visitors and members.

9. Shoot a quick movie and post it on your video profile in iHubbub. Give the link to your colleagues and friends to get viral views on your YouTube channel. If you know any great videos, give us a shout and we'll add them to iHubbub's video channel.

10. And last but certainly not least, please go into your dashboard and invite your business colleagues and friends to share all the activities on iHubbub. See this example of a fully complete profile. And remember your profile will be automatically optimised for search engine ranking!
