Interesting... how was the question asked? After investigating other networking groups and even partipating in a couple of them fairly intensely, I thought Biznik was a complete bargain!
I get to network when and where I want at my convenience (not the same place every week or month);
I get to choose the topics of the events I attend (and I've learned a LOT, many of the educational events are way better than those I've paid for),
I get to be the "guest speaker" anytime I want (not just have 60 seconds, or 12 minutes when it's "my turn" in the rotation),
Plus, It's an awesome articles platform,
a place for real collaboration and feedback,
you drive more traffic to my site consisently than anything else I do,
you've raised my SEO (I'm WAY easier to find on google now)
I've had bizniks hire me and I've hired other members,
I've had a lot of fun,
I've developed new classes and curriculum with willing "guinea pigs,"
I got a video for $5 (oh,actually free, 'cause I volunteered at Shine)
and (last but not least) I've made some really great friends.
THANK-YOU for all you and Dan and your staff give, and if you insist on giving us MORE value, I'll try to cope!
I think if people aren't finding value, either
1) they're not USING the tools or participating,
2) they might be in a community where there isn't a Biznik network, so they're only getting part of the picture, or
3) Their target market is simply different from "the average Biznik," which is going to be true for some. (I.e., an aquaintance whose business is selling microscopes is going to need a different set of tools and a different audience.)
I like that tagline, too, "Going it alone. Together."
