Become an organiser…

Now is the time for you to start running a First Friday meeting...

Last Friday I spent the day at Wolverhampton Racecourse at the Business Networking Show, with over 500 switched on networkers... all people who realised the impact networking can have on their businesss... and on their bottom line!!

There were some great keynote speakers like Brad Burton from 4N, Dragon Lady herself Rachel Elnaugh, Apprentice Neil Clough, Marketing Guru Dee Blick, the Wisdom Queen Debbie Huxton and Mr Network Dummy himself Stafan Thomas.

If you would like to see what people had to say about the event head over to Twitter and search for @TBNShow or #TBNS2014 - keep an eye out for news of next year!! Also make sure you are following them: @BradBurton @RachelElnaugh @NeilWClough @deeblick @debbie huxton @noredbraces

I have over 20 enquiries from attendees at the show to start groups 'up north' so hopefully we will be a much bigger network by the new year - so now is the time for you to get involved and take advantage of the increased exposure you will gain from being an organiser!! 

It’s easy to procrastinate, to put off, and to dilly dally, but if you still need to win more customers for your business then what’s to be gained from waiting?

What about becoming the best known networker? Or the person of influence in your area? Or getting a huge uplift in referrals? What’s going to change unless you take decisive action to make it happen?

Nothing.

If you’d already decided to get started then you’d already have seen a difference in your growing list of contacts and referrals.

Just like Paul Dallibar from Gordian Solutions Ltd, who was in a position exactly like yours before he decided to start running a group:

“Steve not only recognises the power of business networking, but has created a powerful, enjoyable and very successful model in First Friday. As an active participant, who has benefited from the reputation I have gained as an organiser, I would thoroughly recommend the First Friday Network.”

...and Tony Hedger from A&T Business Associates Limited, who sent us this note recently:

"We have just taken on our second First Friday meeting having grown as a company and wanted our new team member to start to build a company presence in the area. Having run a First Friday event for over 5 years and seen the benefits that it has created in brand awareness and reputation for our company in the local area, we felt it was the only way to quickly build up our company name as someone in a new area that was well connected and a true networker. I would recommend taking on a First Friday meeting if you are keen to grow and develop your business in that location, as networking is the best way to grow your business, and what better way than to be known as the best local networker!"

I'd love to have you as part of the network, so let me ask you…

…are you ready to grow your business?

…do you want to get loads of referrals pouring into your business?

If your answer is yes I want to make taking that next step as easy as possible. 

If you’re worried about the cost, then don’t be, listen to what one of our organisers had to say:

“I am the only person that has had a direct financial cost for attending, which is easily offset by the people who actively target me and the promotion that being the event organiser gives me. I have seen the benefit of running the events in quickly gaining brand awareness in the local business area. It has helped me gain business from companies that would have taken me longer to build relationships with had I not set up the First Friday Networking event. It has also helped my business find clients and I can say that the direct cost of setting up a First Friday event has been recovered many times over!”

... and we've reduced the fee to just £120 a year - yes £10 a month - if you can't get a fantastic ROI from that you're doing something wrong!!!

To get started today, simply email me at steve@firstfriday-network.co.uk. 

If you’re still not sure, and you’d like to talk to me personally then call 01243 787100.

Yours sincerely,
Steve Wilson

Everyone loves the idea behind First Friday and I hope that many more groups start and people join our happy little network... you can help by inviting one guest along to a meeting with you... why not try it this week!

First Friday works for you!

I asked on LinkedIn and Facebook for some testimonials of how the network is having a positive effect on your business and here are the first couple of responses. Do you have a story to tell us?

"First Friday (Lewes) has been the biggest source of new clients from face-to-face networking! This is why I was happy to take over organisation of the group. And then of course I went to take on organisation of Third Friday Brighton and have got work from there. Cannot see me stopping any time soon. And now I've launched a new business (see www.bananaoffice-networking.com) I hope to get even more work in the coming months and years."
Ashley Price, Bannana Office

"After one visit to an 'Open' First Friday Network meeting in Bognor Regis with the amazing Kay Phillips I have got myself a new Accountant from Finch Lynton for Heels of Arundel, purchased myself a new smart phone from Chris at O2 in Bognor, and Paul Inskip Photography is now supporting my charity Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice. Not bad eh! I would highly recommend adding a First Friday Network meeting to your diary."
Caroline Roberts-Quigley, Heels of Arundel

Also, everyone seems to be very happy with the membership pack that you get when you join the breakfast network! Thank you Paul Service (www.commslearning.com) for the Tweet!
