How many times have you been to a marketing event and made some really good contacts hoping to connect at a later date only to find that the collection of business cards ends up in a drawer somewhere in your house?
Yes, this has happened to me many times and defeats the whole purpose of why you took your valuable time and money to attend a networking event with the hopes of making the connections that will lead to new business.
It is totally deflating sometimes when you look back at the event and say: “I can’t believe that I didn’t connect with that person!” or “I called that person later and they were too busy to meet” or “Is this person going to remember me when I call them because they probably have 200 other business cards of someone else from the same event?”
It can be frustrating that is for sure and I am glad to say that I NEVER have to network like that ever again.
One of the best ways to network my business successfully is belonging to a networking group like BNI which I have been a member for 7 years.
As we all know… you have to know, like, and trust people to do business with them and this is exactly what happens in a BNI group.
Right now our group is giving away a free 2 week trial membership to be used by July 27th, 2018 with no obligation. In fact, if you like what you see and decide to join your first bi-annual membership dues will be waived. If you are tired of going to networking events only to pass out your business cards and not establish business then this is completely for you.
Our group of 20+ professionals is on target for passing $1,000,000 in direct business to each other by the end of this fiscal year!
If you are interested in a 2 week Free Trial of BNI CLICK BELOW and print out the free membership certificate. Thanks!
