Here’s the short answer: YES THEY ARE FOR REAL. I even recommend them for my blog followers.
Not only are they for real (I am a member of their online network along with thousands of others), I have used their benefits in many ways. Overall, I have made back my investment many times over.
Let me tell you what I like about them:
- They have a group discount network for making online purchases of computers, travel, electronics, major chain stores, flowers and much, much more. I’ve saved hundreds already. I think I saved over $100 on a purchase from Rosetta Stone language training software.
- I have met many people through their network which is a lot like LinkedIn in many ways. And you don’t have these awful restrictions like LinkedIn does. I am able to directly reach out to people to let them know how I can help them or to ask questions about the market they are in.
- It’s a bit like an online club more than a social network. I feel that I have even made good friends (often times better than people I have met through Facebook).
- I did receive their wall plaque and I am waiting for my directory (published once a year) which will make a great coffee table book.
- Finally, I like what they are doing and where they are going. I hope that they enjoy greater success than LinkedIn if they keep it up.
Is Stanford Who’s Who right for you? I think so if you are an entrepreneur and interested in self-promotion…even more so for people in different professions who are looking for some recognition for their years and experience in their field. Is that you? If so, go to StanfordWhosWho.com and get signed up and see for yourself. I get to referral fee or money in return, so please don’t feel that my motivation for this is to put money in my pocket.
I have NOT met anyone who disliked Stanford Who’s Who after trying it and I’ve met hundreds who have liked it.
