While iBizBook allows you to post as many pictures as you like, the website only allows you one profile picture, so make it count.

A clear, well-lit picture of you will help you to put your best foot forward, and remember your profile picture is accessible to everybody on iBizBook.com, even with the privacy settings active.

View friends that are Pending your Approval
For those of us who grew up in the pre-iBizBook era, it's sometimes tough to reach out to old friends and say (in a nice tone) "will you be my iBizBook friend"? It's something we should all get over, because unlike other social media sites iBizBook values your time and rewards you and your friends for their participation. So in your invitation tell your friends that they are valued and get Perks with there iBizBook account. If it happens that you stumble across somebody on the website whose profile is either personal or business that piques your interest, it is best to send that person an introductory message along with your friend request.
Something like "Hey I’m interested in learning about your business" or "Hi I’m new to the community" Whatever it is that you decide, say it in your voice be authentic and genuine and you will get the right response. Having a large network will help you find consumer savings opportunities and being friends will allow you talk directly to businesses.
