How to find other Christians to work with
As a business owner, you have the ability to pick and choose who you will work with. That’s one of the benefits of owning it yourself instead of working for someone else.
When you own a Christian business, you may feel it’s hard to find other Christians to work with. You don’t have to worry, because there are quite a few ways to find them. You will need to search for them because they will be a little harder to find, but it is possible.
1. Message boards
Search Google and Yahoo for message boards that are specifically for Christians. When you join these boards, make sure you set up your profile and post an intro so others can get to know you. Also make sure you set up a signature line if it doesn’t say anything about it in the rules.
Make sure you read through the rules so you know what you can and can not do. Most message boards have days or categories where you can post information about your business. Make sure you do this on the appropriate days so you don’t get kick out because you didn’t follow the rules.
2. Social Media
Social media sites like Twitter.com and Facebook.com are great places to find Christian people. You can do searches using keywords that fit your business to find others. These places are perfect to meet others and find people to do business with. Network on these sites and build relationships so you can build trust with them. When you do this, they will feel comfortable purchasing from you.
Search for Christian groups on Yahoo and MSN. There are literally thousands of groups on Yahoo if you search using only the keyword Christian. You can take it even further when you use other keywords that are more fitting for your business and the types of people you are looking for.
You can find Christians offline in churches or other functions that are designed for Christians. You may be able to find networking functions to go to or you can set up your own Christian groups and invite people to them.
Find Christian websites and look at the ads and other information they provide. You may be able to find other sites that are for Christians looking for business partners or customers. You may also find other sites that you haven’t been to that offer the support you are looking for through the Christian people.
Finding other Christians to work your business with is easier to do when you follow these steps. Look for them wherever you go and when you find them, bookmark that site so you can go back again.
