Over the last 7 years, hundreds of local businesses have joined us as ABN Contact Builders, meeting two other businesspeople each month, developing relationships, supporting each other and winning new business. However, this year is the first time that a Contact Builder membership has been given as a present!
Like any other business development or marketing activity, our networking is most effective when it’s done regularly. A little, regularly works well. Bingeing, then nothing for weeks or months, doesn’t. But how often is ‘regular’?
September saw a record high month for the number of new ‘Contact Builders’, our unique 1-1 relationship-building service. It also took the total number of clients who have used this service to over 500 – including some who’ve been with us from the very start 6 years ago!
It’s a tough time for everyone just now. And that definitely goes for business owners and sales people who are trying to make connections, build relationships and develop new business opportunities
