Independent workhorses have a hard time getting business. Sure, you can network with people you know and make connections with former co-workers, but today I'll show you a new way to get the networking ball rolling.
Ryze is a virtual business community where you can talk about your ideas and build relationships. Here's what you can do when you sign up for a free account:
- Set up a homepage for your business

Sign in to the site with the user name and password "demo" (without quotes) to get a feel for Ryze before you sign up.
When you're ready to build your homepage, use one of the simple templates and include as much information about your company as possible. Simple links on the left side of the page let you add photos and edit your company information.
