Harness the power of networking and local area marketing

If you own your own business, regardless of its size, networking is a regular “must do” exercise to develop and keep it healthy.


It’s good personally too as it gets you away from working in the business to working on it. You meet people, make new friends AND draw attention to your products or services.


The more you do it, the easier it becomes. You gain more confidence to build solid business relationships with others.


Good business networking skills not only generate more referrals but increase your business. It’s commonly held that word of mouth is responsible for about 70 percent of new business.

Join us (it’s free) and take an important step in building business health.

NETWORKING IS GOOD - JUST BE YOURSELF!


If you own your own business, regardless of its size, networking is a regular "must do" exercise to develop and keep it healthy.

It's good personally too as it gets you away from working in the business to working on it.

 

You meet people, make new friends AND draw attention to your products or services.

Networking doesn't come easy and can be daunting for some. Persevere and you will make it.

 

Genuine people, always win through.

The more you do it, the easier it becomes. You gain more confidence to build solid business relationships with others.

Good business networking skills not only generate more referrals, but increase your business. It's commonly held that word of mouth is responsible for about 70 percent of new business.

As you build up your contacts and make friends, more and more people will be interested in the services you offer. It's also a fact that individuals like to pass services to those they talk to regularly.

 

However, this is only going to happen if you have a good network of business contacts.

Join us (membership is free) and take an important step in building business health.
