Can You Do Business NetWorking On The Net?
I found myself in
the unfortunate position of fighting with my Insurance company on whether or not
my Saab was totaled, and the value of it.
To keep the story
short, we were nowhere close to reaching an agreement.
To get help on my Saab issue I hit the net.
I discovered that even though the Saab is not an extremely common car (in
the Los Angeles area the weekend paper will only have maybe 5 or 6 ads for used
ones) I found a fair number of Saab owner sites:
I posted my request for help to the assorted bulletin boards.
I got some good advice etc.... I
was directed to a book called the "Old Car Price Guide"...
In short I proved my point to the insurance company.
Also one reader to
the bulletin boards asked me for my mechanic's name. She lived in my area and had been going from Saab Dealer to
Saab Dealer... Pouring money into
the car, and not getting the problem fixed.
I gave her the info on my mechanic.
She went over to the shop, and in less then an hour was a happy Saab
owner with a car working as it should.
So lets recap.
I used the bulletin boards to get advice and assistance.
I got it. I was also able to
give out a referral. Sounds a lot
like NetWorking to me.
