What is blerrp®?

It’s an online community that allows two-way discussion between all of its members, as well as a blog featuring helpful and educational content from entrepreneurs all over the world.

How is blerrp® structured?

The forum contains several categories, which contain sub-categories that are made up of individual posts.

Members have the ability to create new posts and comment on existing posts.

How do I navigate around the forum?

When you click on a forum sub-category you are taken to all of the posts it contains. Each topic starts out as a single post and grows as more individual posts are added by different users. You can click on an existing post and add to the conversation, or click on ’Post thread’ to start your own.

The post with the most recent activity will appear at the top of the list.

How do I read a post?

To read a post, simply click on its title.

To reply to an existing post, click on the 'Reply' button. If the button isn’t displayed, it means you do not have permission to reply or the thread has been closed to new replies.

How do I find out more about members?

To view information about a particular member, click on his or her name. This will take you to their member page.

What is the ‘Referral Link’ box on the forum home page?

This is your unique forum referral link. Anyone that joins the community using your link is credited to you. Once they make 10 posts they are considered a referral and are added to your stats. Referrals give you Trophy Points. We encourage our members to share their referral links on social media and to their email lists. If you click on ‘Tools’ in the referral link widget you can also access banners in various sizes that have your referral link embedded. We would love it if you put a banner on your blog or website to help introduce more entrepreneurs to the community.
