Is There Any Reason to Write For beBee? LAB

Is There Any Reason to Write For beBee? LAB[ale

beBee is essentially a blogging platform. It will not make you famous and it will not make you rich. If you want to get paid for your writing you are better off pitching your articles to publishers that pay.

If you want to start your own blog, you should just go ahead and do it. It will be more beneficial to you in the long run to start your own blog.

The more you write for beBee the more you build it's platform, but you are not building one for yourself. This is the lie every company sells in a pyramid scheme.

Your success is our success is the biggest lie out there.


(I thought I was a brand ambassador beBee??)

In fact, beBee's success is based on a pyramid scheme.

When they promised ambassadors a piece of the pie and got us excited about writing and pomoting for them, that was just the common pyramid trick all companies use to sell vaccum cleaners and knives.

You cannot dislike a company for using it, but you should be aware of what you are really doing for yourself by promoting beBee, which is little to next to nothing.

No, using beBee consistently and everyday will not make you rich or succesful because beBee is not a platform for young writers or even people who want to build a platform.

beBee is a platform for young professionals!


The only way to truly benefit from beBee is to be a young professional.


beBee is a place for people to promote their own business. You will not get rich here, but you might gain a new client by advertising here. beBee can be a free source of advertisment and that makes beBee extremely useful to the young business person with no money or little money, but you need to be clear about what beBee is and is not.

beBee is not a place to get rich!

beBee is not the best or only way to build your brand!

beBee is not where you should be if your only goal in life is to make it as a freelance writer!

beBee is for people who want to build brand awaness for their own business

beBee is a place to find employees

beBee is a tool


Let'sbe clear, beBee is a tool to help you build your business. beBee is not your business. If you think beBee alone is going to somehow make you money, you really have your head on backwads.

If you are someone that is here just to share your opinion and you are writing on any and every topic, beBee is the wrong platform for you. beBee is for niche target marketing and it does best when a person consistently writes about one genre; politics, fashion, English, computers, droins, financies.

Now I break the rule of target marketing, but when I was writing consistently about musicinas that is when my articles where having the most views because your audience knows what to expect from you and that is how you build an audience, by being a niche writer.

The biggest way to benefit from beBee is to write content geared around your industry. If you own a restruant, write about food. If you work in tourism, write about it. If you are a lwayer give legal advice.

beBee is a place to become visible if you share value


It's also a place where people can easily see you are a novice. No,beBee will not pay you for your post, but the world can still see your post, so ask yourself, do you really want this post speaking on behalf of your brand?


Remember, beBee is just a tool. All tool kits have many tools. Just to put together a desk requiers a  variety of tools. You cannot build a succesful business using only one tool. If anything beBee is just tape. You need a hammer, saw, nails, screws and electrician and the list goes on to build a real business. You need more than tape, though tape is useful.

Interesting... How (or should I say, "When") can I start writing here in BeBee? I just signed up and it says I'm not reputable enough.

I'm not sure you're telling anybody who has been here since the outset anything new. It is your opinion and that's what counts. I never got into writing on beBee for the money. I never had to. I got into to help people who wanted to write learn how to be better writers. Along the way, I made a lot of friends, and that's why it's called social media. I would be safe in saying that almost everybody contributing content here is not doing it for the money. If they are, then they are using the linkages to LI, Facebook and Twitter. You kinda make beBee sound like some sort of scam. But all social media sites run on the same fuel which is content from their members. I also disagree with you on the single focus. I write about lots of different things, and have good readership no matter what I'm writing about. And I know a lot of other people who do the same. The rules you are delineating really apply to a small subset of the people who post here. Just sayin'

And given the fact we mostly came here from LinkedIn after @AlanGeller promoted it, we already had a professional platform ...

BeBee will eventually meet the same fate as Google Plus.

Lyon, It's not all about the money. I am far from a "young professional." I'm so far over the hill I'm in the next valley. I write here and in a number of other places because it is a way to give back. I write because I've learned the hard way about marketing that works and what makes it not. I write because it is a way to get others to accept that "it is not all about me. It is about them, the ones in the audience, the ones reading my experiences and learning from my mistakes. it is about them and the more I hone this craft the more rewarding it is." And so it goes.

Es de agradecer que lejos de crear polémica, cuanto has escrito mostrando tu sentir y padecer muy respetable que da una visión a modo de crítica constructiva que de seguro va a servir para mejorar esta RS y a preguntarse algunas cuestiones. A corregir errores y plantear otras formas de atraer abejas y no a moscas ni a moscones a esta RS.

Planteamientos que llegan a preguntarse el porqué de ver esta RS como para profesionales jóvenes o una RS para hacer dinero o que el éxito de BeBee se basa en un esquema piramidal o que no es la mejor o la única forma de construir tu marca o es un lugar donde la gente puede ver fácilmente que eres un novato, cuando aquí me he encontrado con Grandes Profesionales con los que se puede tratar de tu a tu, sin caer en el aparentar de otras RS o comparar esta RS con una cinta, cuando a lo mejor es una herramienta muy potente, parecida a una navaja suiza, pero otras RS tienen detrás y soportándolas a tanta gente poderosa y con muchísimo dinero, que tal vez sea imposible, a día de hoy impedir que su sombra tape a otras RS, pero quien sabe David, venció a Goliath y puede que quien sabe si esta RS gane por goleada. La gente es muy caprichosa y algo que se pone de moda, se llega a pasar de moda. Aquí @inma jimenez nos habla del descenso que hay en las Rs. ¿Será síntoma de algo? ¿Se habrá cansado la gente y está solo con el WS? También es bueno plantearse todos los puntos por los cuales BeBee, te parecen buenos, como es para marketing de nichos objetivos y funciona mejor cuando una persona escribe constantemente sobre un género; Política, moda, inglés, informática, finanzas, etc y no estar escribiendo sobre cualquier tema como yo hago.

Sobre esto último te diré que yo no pretendo ni hacer dinero, ni negocio escribiendo aquí, sino mi planteamiento es ayudar, orientar, dar a conocer temas en los que por la velocidad de los tiempos en que estamos a veces no se toman en cuenta. Actúo y escribo de forma parecida al que puede actuar un médico general de Atención primaria, cuando alguien va por una dolencia y este le envía al especialista. Si los médicos generales no existieran, los especialistas se volverían locos tratando de averiguar que es lo que pasa. Imaginemos que alguien va al cardiólogo porque le duele el pecho y resulta ser algo relacionado con el pulmón, habrá perdido un tiempo precioso aparte de haber vuelto loco y haber hecho perder su tiempo al cardiólogo.

Lyon Brave Ah, a platform for " young professionals" ???? I have been writing for this platform for three years now and it was never my intention to become rich or indeed famous for the base of users is still I believe under the 20 m mark. If anything I write and read pieces here because they; a) give me pleasure to both read and write.b) has introduced me to so many good, intelligent scribes whose musings have provided me with insight, humour, and understanding. 3) It is more than just a platform where " young professionals' scribble articles where they regurgitate meaningless diatribes beginning with the headline.." How To or " Ten Ways to....." Many writers on this site, myself included had a 'professional life' long before the advent of beBEE and perhaps we are fortunate to simply read and participate for the purpose of sharing knowledge, humour or ranting about not much at all.
