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’?
Despite only being underway for a few weeks, the Ttenners are already doing what these groups do: building relationships, sharing vital market intel and insights, supporting each other and winning new business.
Our ‘Ten’ sales intel groups recently passed the 10-year anniversary of the launch of the first group, Sten. Well, over £5m in new business has now been won by group members
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
So what are these groups all about then? They’re small groups of 10 business owners and sales/BD professionals who meet fortnightly to share market intel and work collaboratively to help each other with new business opportunities. Small, intimate groups means high quality and high trust relationships. So it’s no surprise these groups generate very high levels of new business.
It seems like 10 minutes ago that we had 3 ‘ten’ Sales Intel Groups – now we have 7! So thank-you very much to all members of (checking I’ve got the letters right!) Aten, Gten, Kten, Sten, Lten, Mten and Xten.
