5 techniques you can use immediately to get better leads from your networking group

It’s time to meet the right people.

The people who return your calls.

The people who send you leads.

The people who answer your questions.

Here’s a little secret.

You already know these people.

You do!

You’ve already met them.

You (and they) just don’t know it yet.

Because even though you (and they) see each other every 2 weeks

…at your networking group meetings

…you’re not taking the crucial next step to become referrable.

I’m willing to bet that there is plenty of opportunity hiding in your business networking group.

Even if you haven’t seen any results.

Even if people don’t return your calls.

Even if you don’t think you know that many people.

So, I’m doing a free interactive 60 minute webinar to share my step-by-step process to get better leads from your networking group.

The first step — drink more coffee!

Don’t worry. You don’t actually have to drink coffee if you don’t want to.

But you do have to sit down for what I call coffee meetings.

I’ll go through, step by step, how to decide:

  • Who to invite
  • When to invite them
  • How to deal with no shows (and non responses)
  • Where to meet
  • Who pays
  • How to start the conversation
  • How to know when you’re done
  • How to follow up without being annoying
  • How often to meet
  • Who will be your best referral sources

I’ll explain how coffee meetings are the foundation for consistently and confidently meeting new people, developing trust, and expanding your referral network.

I’ll show you a unified approach to business networking, and you’ll learn several practical techniques you can use immediately to get better results from your current networking groups.

All Here, Waiting for You

This month, in addition to straight networking, Arlington Entrepreneurs founder Margy Rydzynski will be demonstrating the various features of the Arlington Entrepreneurs website. The AE website is an extremely powerful tool, one that was designed with business-to-business interactivity in mind. You can use it to connect to other, compatible businesses, just like you can on Facebook or LinkedIn. You can search for other members by profession or by name. Networking is crucial to building your business. There are hundreds of other businesses on Arlington Entrepreneurs. Let Margy show you how to connect with them and start a conversation!

You can also join or create a group on Arlington Entrepreneurs. Each group is equipped to act like a mini-network of your own. You can invite your connections to your group and connect your external blog so members can read your latest posts. You can also upload separate documents for other members to download and read. You can add multi-media updates for other members to read and reply to. Even better, each group can post their own events. AE Premium members can also post their events to the main site.

Margy will help you get started, by demonstrating these and other features. She’ll troubleshoot problems with you and will collect your suggestions and recommendations for modifications and improvements to the site.

Leave the day free for other work, then come join us for a night of networking (both online as well as offline) at Nero!
