Business Networking is EXPLODING!

As you all know, our friends at Fast Pitch! www.fastpitchonline have become a premiere destination for business professionals looking to market and network their business.

Over the past month, they have climbed the charts, and are now one of the top 20,000 websites (based on last month's traffic). This is an amazing milestone, even if business networking is the hottest thing on the web today. Check out Fast Pitch! traffic exploding on the right - Courtesy of Alexa Rankings.

Another light was casted on this new market by Business 2.0 this week, when they featured LinkedIn (one of the leaders in business networking) - and wrote a very informative article about the expected growth in this space.

A great quote by Reid Hoffman (founder of LinkedIn and infamous founder of Paypal which was sold to eBay for 1.5B) talks about the difference between social networking and business networking on the web - "Once we get them, we can keep them from the age of 25 to 65, the time when people are most valuable, when they are out changing the world," Hoffman says. "I want to be the service for them."

Hoffman refers to the massive trend of Social Networking sites like FaceBook and mySpace, and why business networking should reach a higher plane on the web.

Were are excited to see whats around the corner for Fast Pitch! and this market.
