Turn your pub into a venue for the First Friday Network and get your bar buzzing with business clients!

First Friday Network is a FREE and friendly business networking event held on the first Friday of the month across Sussex, Surrey, Kent, Hampshire and London and a growing number of pubs nationwide are getting that Friday feeling! By becoming a host venue just once a month you’ll soon increase the numbers of regular clients coming through your doors as well as your revenue.

Drawing regular and new customers alike to your pub couldn’t be simpler really.  People love to network and they love a friendly local venue to network in – so why not make sure that your pub is a First Friday Network pub too! All you need do is offer a  friendly and informal environment in which your regular networkers can meet each month then simply  let the group run itself – no formalities, no pre-booking nor membership admin to deal with – First Friday is FREE, friendly and above all informal.

Networkers simply turn up, buy a drink then get on with networking.

You can promote the network through other local organisations such as the Chamber of Commerce, Federation of Small Business and other networking groups like 4Networking, BNI etc. You can also publicise them via social media, Twitter and Facebook – then  open your doors to your local networkers and  watch them spend! Once they’ve been and enjoyed the buzz in your pub, they’ll be back for more and  you win by extra takings at the bar and encouraging a  loyal clientele with a reason to  keep coming back time after time. A clientele that will recommend your venue to other businesses and friends!

 Just £10 a month buys you an annual licence and we’ll supply you with a roller banner to promote the event, as well as leaflets, beer mats and business cards –  everything you need to market and promote the meetings. We’ll promote you via the website and also via our monthly enewsletters to all the companies that register with us online. We also market actively on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

There are other things you can do to  grow the network, such as offer your networking clientele a discount voucher or loyalty card. We can supply you with First Friday loyalty cards… for example: buy 6 drinks and get one free! If you have meeting rooms available then you might think about offering special rates for seminars and events. You can  collect the details of the attendees and then you can  promote your own pub events to them and take advantage of this new and growing customer base!

You will have your own webpage on the First Friday site where you can promote the meetings and your pub. You can also include special offers or upcoming promotions for your pub on the page and in the blog if you wish.

Get in touch today and start attracting more customers straight away!
