Global LinkedIn Groups for Small Businesses

Note: I’ve joined and vetted all of these global groups. They’re full of helpful small business owners and opportunities to connect with like minded entrepreneurs.

Small Business & Independent Consultant Network – Link

An extremely active global group with 91,489 members focused on creating a place where small business owners and professionals can strengthen each other as well as connect with various necessary services like branding, accounting, regal review, etc.

Entrepreneur & Small Business Forum – Link

A global group with 58,386 members that helps small business owners build and scale their business. The group contains a lot of tips and resources on how to achieve small business goals.

Small Business Accelerator – Link

Smaller than the previous two groups (20,702 members) but certainly not lacking in member activity. The group members share information with each other with a common goal to build successful businesses. Group members organize events (online and offline) to help other members with small business training on topics like Facebook Marketing, Twitter Marketing, Pinterest for Small Business Marketing, Building a Business Website, etc.

Small Business Owners Group – Link

This group has 34,310 members and is quite active. Admins of the group encourage members to share their ideas, expertise, experiences, and strategies in order to help each other build successful businesses. The group doesn’t let just anyone in – you’re going to need at least 10 connections to be considered. Reaching this threshold isn’t hard at all so don’t worry.
