What is the difference between Members, Experts and Groups?
Members are looking for information and resources from experts. They seek knowledge in the form of articles, videos, events and other resources to help them save time, save money, grow their business and achieve personal success. Members also search the Expert Directory when they are looking for expert assistance.
Experts have knowledge, experience and resources they would like to share with members and other experts. Experts realize that by sharing their knowledge through events, articles and videos they will increase their visibility and attract new customers.
