We want to welcome all our existing and new BizSugar sharing platform members and also new members to our new BizSugar Mastermind group.
Important: The sharing platform and the Mastermind group are on two different platforms and use separate log in information.
But don’t worry. We’ve prepared an easy guide to lead you through joining both communities, whether you’ve been a regular visitor to BizSugar in the past or not.
How to Register and Log into BizSugar Sharing
If you’re a longtime contributor to the BizSugar sharing community, don’t worry. Not much has changed.
The original BizSugar sharing platform has been moved to https://share.bizsugar.com/. This is where you share your content and find the best content shared by others.
If you are already a member of the BizSugar sharing community, simply log in the way you always have. If you aren’t already in our sharing community, create an account by clicking “Register” in the top right corner of the page and fill in the form.
Once you’ve joined, simply log in at the top right corner as shown in the image below.
How to Join the BizSugar Mastermind Community
But whether you’re a longtime contributor to the BizSugar sharing community or are just joining, we’d love for you to join our BizSugar Mastermind Community too. And there are benefits for doing so.
As mentioned, the BizSugar Mastermind community is a separate community hosted on Zoho Connect. To become a member, go to https://www.bizsugar.com/mastermind or click on the Mastermind tab from the main BizSugar.com home page.
Fill in the very short form on that page (location shown in the screen capture below):
When you submit the form, you should see a green banner at the top that reads: “Your invitation to Mastermind network sent successfully”. (See the red arrow indicating where to look for this message in the screen capture below.)
If you don’t see that green message, don’t panic. Just leave a comment in this post for personal assistance and I or another member of the BizSugar team will contact you soon. Or contact me using one of the methods at the bottom of this post.
Check Your Email for Your Invitation
Check your email for your invitation into our Mastermind community. It will look like the image below. Click the green “Accept Invite” button. The email comes from [email protected]
When you log into the BizSugar Mastermind community you will be logging into Zoho, too. Once you’ve signed up, Zoho will ask for permission to access your Zoho account details.
Simply click the orange “Grant Access” button and you’re ready to log into the platform that hosts the community.
In the future, if you are logged into Zoho you will be able to go directly to the Mastermind community without needing to log in again.
How to Log into the BizSugar Mastermind Community
If you’re still confused about how to log into the BizSugar Mastermind community, here’s another brief overview.
You can go there directly at http://mastermind.bizsugar.com/ or by clicking the “enter the community” buttons from the Mastermind tab or the main home page.
How to Access the Free Resources Inside the BizSugar Mastermind Community
If this is your only Zoho Community, you are now inside the group. But there is one more step to take to make sure you see all the tools and resources we will be sharing. These are tools like calculators, templates and scorecards to help run your business more efficiently.
To gain access:
- Click on “Groups” in the far left corner.
- Click “Public Groups” under “My Groups”.
- Find the “Mastermind Community”.
- Click “Join.”
If you are a member of other groups in Zoho Connect, remember to use the drop-down at the top to switch between them. There will not be a drop-down arrow like the one shown in the image above if you are not in any other groups anywhere else.
Need Assistance Joining or Logging In?
Should you run into any challenges accessing or using our new community, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any other member of the BizSugar team for help. You can send me a chat message inside the Mastermind group or — as mentioned earlier — leave me a comment in this post.
In a hurry? Send me a connection request on Skype (username growmap) and ask me there. I will answer as soon as I see it. Don’t use Skype? Message me on LinkedIn.com/in/growmap or Facebook.com/growmap.
