New Player in the Market Will Compete with LinkedIn

Rumors have abounded about Masterseek.com’s professional profile site’s imminent introduction to the World Wide Web. Still under development, it boasts the world’s largest business database with over 145 million personal professional profiles from around the world—that’s more than LinkedIn which is currently estimated to have just over 125 million professional profiles.

What makes Masterseek’s profile database so competitive?
Masterseek is already the largest B2B search engine, with 40 million more businesses listed than the nearest competitor and growing at a faster pace. Masterseek.com’s service is free, like most similar databases. Where it differes is in its ability to allow businesses full control over their profile. In addition the actual search functions are more intuitve, with more accurate local results or global results if that is the user’s search preference.

This is what has attracted so many businesses, and so many professionals to the website. Upon launch Masterseek.com’s professional profile section is fully expected to perform as well as the business search portion of the site. It seems to be the natural evolution of a business search engine, that it should incorporate professional profiles as well. However other sites have not done so, at least not to this degree. There in lies the power of Masterseek, and why it is expected to replace LinkedIn at some point in the near future.

How will Masterseek’s professional profiles work?
Currently it is very similar to LinkedIn it looks like. As of now the primary difference is in the numbers. Masterseek already has more, and if past growth is any evidence it will soon be one of the new places to search for professionals. Masterseek’s site is also free and it gives users control over their own profile. It is expected to use Masterseek’s primary search engine application from the business listing side of the site. If so expect it to have faster, more complete, more specific and more accurate search functionality both locally or for any specified geographic search.

We got a hold of Masterseek President Rasmus Refer who preferred not to comment on current plans,

“We are working on many new activities with the objective to become the largest global provider of business information, but cannot tell you more about our plans right now” –Rasmus Refer

Despite details being kept close to the vest, we have dug up a number of key points:

• Masterseek will have more profiles right off the bat as mentioned, 145M to LinkedIn’s 125M.
• It will use a different search platform, if it is the same as the Business Listings section it will be faster, more accurate and more comprehensive locally and globally.
• Listings will be 100% free.
• Those making a profile will have as much or more control to share information than those using LinkedIn.

AtTheMatch Launch A New Sport Of Business Networking Site

A new approach to online business networking has been set up, with the hope of bringing sports fans together to conduct business. AtTheMatch’s free business networking approach, allows sports fans to ‘meet’ in online stadia. An Arsenal fan, for example, joins the Arsenal stadium and is placed in touch with fellow Arsenal fans to discuss not only the latest news, but potential business opportunities.

Members are encouraged to roam different stadia in a bid to develop business networking groups. AtTheMatch suggest that “whatever your sport, whatever your team, we have a stadium to create the best business networking environment.” The idea is to create a business networking site with a more human aspect, by capitalising on those that already share a common passion.

Upon registering at thenetwork.atthematch.com/signup users create their own profile which enables fellow users to locate them through a search engine, allowing connections to be made through a variety of avenues, including location, industry or team of choice.

Founder of AtTheMatch, Simon Maurer, believes his business networking site could fill a void in the market. “Thousands of fans will watch their teams side by side for years on end, but will often be unaware of the opportunities to conduct business with each other. Whether small businesses are looking for business networking tips, or larger companies are looking to form business networking groups, our website is the perfect solution.”

Business networking websites are not new, but the concept of bringing together sports fans on an exclusive business networking site could soon change the way fans view each other.
