With the success of our PropertyChat community, I've had a number of people suggest I start something similar for businesses in Australia.
Other than Flying Solo, which is focused on solo operators and micro-businesses, there doesn't seem to be anything else catering to general business discussion in Australia.
It wasn't in my current plans to launch a new site right now - and I couldn't think of a good name for the site anyway (all the good domains were taken), but then I had the opportunity to purchase the businesschat.com.au domain name, so jumped at the chance to launch the site.
I pretty much just duplicated the work I'd already done on PropertyChat - so the sites look almost identical (other than a slight change to the primary colour scheme), and that allowed me to get the site operational in just a few days.
I haven't yet bedded down my business model for the site, but I'm just going to let it grow and find its own way in the short term. My focus will be on growing and nurturing the community rather than monetisation. PropertyChat is still my prime focus at this point anyway.
