How We Got Started
Before starting Alignable, we spent months talking with hundreds of local business owners about how technology could help them grow their business. Our "Ah-ha!" moment came when person after person told us what they most wanted was an easy way to meet the other business owners on their street. We worked hand-in-hand with businesses right in our hometown of Acton, Massachusetts, making introductions, building relationships, and demonstrating how by working together they could attract new customers. Alignable today reflects many of the lessons we learned from those days.

Alignable is a wonderful tool for connecting with other local businesses and potential customers.
Alignable is a great way to network locally!
Alignable has become a great networking resource- bringing our clients, businesses and buyers together. A great tool to have when recommending businesses and expanding our network!
Since joining a few months ago, I have met dozens of business owners face-to-face. Alignable sort of "forces" people to connect by suggesting options that start the conversation. The Ask & Learn section is a great way to help each other grow as well.
I'm honestly impressed by the folks who have already reached out to connect since I joined Alignable - particularly a local pediatrician who could definitely be a mutual source of referrals.
This is going great! I like this site. Most everyone I ask to connect has accepted, and I already have one lead from here! AWESOME!!
I am so glad I finally took the time to get involved with networking on Alignable. It is way better than LinkedIn for B2B networking and I have made new local business connections I would probably never have found without it. I especially appreciate the simplicity of offering promotions and announcing events, especially for a networking group I am the President of here in Naples. I also enjoy answering questions from other business owners and sharing my knowledge with them. I really enjoy helping other business owners. Thanks a million for making this site so business friendly.
I really like this tool, as it has allowed me to connect with a number of people who I didn't know prior to connecting on here. I've even met a few of them, and discussed how we could help each other with referrals. It really is a great way to connect with other businesses located in the same city as you, and help each other out in generating business.
I’m not sure what you experience has been like with Alignable but I have found it to be fantastic. In the short time that I have been on the page I have met with at least 12 Networking Colleagues, acquired 4 clients, and broadened my organizations profile in the community by THIS MUCH (Hold My Hand s 4 feet apart). I have picked up a mentor in the form of Mark Mehling of Take Control Marketing, and reconnected with former colleagues whom I really respect: I’ll use Becky Creighton as a perfect example. But not only this, the excitement generated on Alignable has given me the impulse to do something I really like: Plan Special Events. So, using the contacts I have generated on Alignable alone I am holding my first quarterly networking event which takes place on May 26th. What I like most about Alignable is the fact that I can limit my contacts to people in a 5 mile radius. This is because KGNU Radio is a Community Radio Station and I am responsible for raising funds for the Not For Profit Organization by selling airtime, or Underwriting as we call it, to companies looking to get the word out about their products or services in the next 30 days. So, I’d like to recommend the use of Alignable to entities looking to grow their business or grow their profile in the community.
Thank you so much for forming Alignable. I'm a member of some networking groups and I definitely see potential in Alignable. I feel this is going to be the new way of networking due to peoples busy schedules. The other thing I like about Alignable is that you can build your network around your business instead of meeting people that don't have a direct influence in your business.
Alignable is an opportunity to connect with other Professionals both locally, and nationally
Great for networking
What a great app. I love the convenience of connecting by not always having to think what to say.
Alignable is one of the best sources of business connections I have come across in a long time. As an agressive internet marketing company a day doesn't go by Alignable is not one of my social media posts and sources. Eric is excellent at communicating with his members in all aspects. The staff all do excellent jobs in keeping Alignable a desired social media spot.
Great place to connect with business and form beneficial supportive relationships
Even better that LinkedIn!
Friendly & responsive...a big help to businesses!
I love Alignable! This is by far the best platform to boost your local networking ability. Thank you (Eric & Venkat) for the ability to reconnect with so many people in such a relevant manner. :) Loving It!! Thank you Gabriel for such a warm welcome and for ROCKIN' it as a community manager. ~Lori
I have really been stepping up our online presence and social media tactics. In just one month we have seen at least 2 new orders a day and several more emails, calls and social media specific messages that we can trace back to just that activity. We are even getting add on orders from our current clients because of it. This is just another step in that endeavor! ACTIVITY BREEDS ACTIVITY.
For quite some time, I've been a member with LinkedIn.com, and have been using their platform to promote my business and my marketing acumen. But something about LinkedIn was missing. Don't get me wrong, LinkedIn is a great web platform and social media networking site that elevates you an a more global scale. Alignable.com has met the need of the local business entrepreneur, who operates on a more regional or local level. There's much more interaction with everyone, and this is a much better platform for small businesses. It allows us locally another conduit to interact. However, I'd like to see some sort of incentive for use to use others on the platform, to push referrals. There has to be a way to incorporate that aspect into the platform, to make it the "Goto" hotspot for business networking. Another aspect of it that I really like is that it doesn't matter the size of your business - everyone is on a level playing field here. its "mono-y-mono", which eliminates a lot of middlemen and gatekeepers. It's also financially neutral - you can't overwhelm and take over due to the size of your wallet. One of the "incentive" areas that LinkedIn addressed a while back was the ability for people like myself, to contribute through writing articles about their area of area of expertise. That has gone a very long way in enabling the free flow of ideas, and affords the individual that "15-minutes of fame" feeling and gratification for the recognition of their personal knowledge base and career performance. Sometimes, that's all the incentive one needs. It's not so much about the making money aspect of business, sometimes its about getting credit when its long overdue, and finding a place where you can demonstrate your talents and knowledge base. This is the best platform I've seen in quite awhile, you all should be VERY proud of what you've created. Nice to see someone taking their time and thinking things through. I've sent invites to about everyone I know. Again- winner! ("What do we have for him, Johnny?") I give Alignable.com my HIGHEST recommendation. In my professional opinion, Alignable.com is the MUST HAVE Marketing • networking • business platform tool of 2017! - Nice job everyone.

I cannot express how excited my business has become off the sheer brilliance of this platform. My business is to connect and Alignable has given me access to local professionals in a way Linked In struggled to do. They are set up in a supportive way and have created a viable solution to the hurting world of online referrals (Yelp). I have set 6 appointments from those I have connected with on Alignable in four days, most I already knew on Linked In. That should tell you something!! Great Job Alignable.....Now go get connected!!
LinkedIn meets Quora, free and easy! How can you go wrong? Connecting with local businesses has never been made easier!
Alignable love local!
Of all the social media tools I've used this one is the most user-friendly. I've actually had fun setting up my profile, answering and asking questions, getting and receiving recommendations and setting up future "coffee" dates. What a great idea!
I am just starting to use social media to get new customers. I have dealt with the Military every since I retired from the Army and I need to expand especially because they have down size so much.
no substitute for dreams and ambition.,going places.
Alignable is better than LinkedIn. It's incredibly useful, educational and promotes communication between businesses. Not like the "connect & forget" trend I've seen on other social media platforms.
It's a great group to connect, learn and really meet your local businesses.
Thank you for your back door enterprise suggesting!
I've only been on this platform for a week and I am really loving the engagement with other business owners. Thanks for creating this community!
Great platform that allows our local businesses to connect, network, and help each-other grow

The Top Small business owners connector platform.
I recommend Alignable as the best way to connect with local businesses and learn more about them without wading through LinkedIn profiles and about pages on Facebook and Twitter. It's a one-stop shop with perks the others require "premium" memberships to access. I cannot say enough about Alignable!
Alignable is a great way to connected with businesses and show off all the products i'm loving it
