LEARN MORE ABOUT THE WATERSIDE NETWORK GROUP
Most small business owners will tell you that the best means of advertising is word of mouth.
This is why some of us are able to continue to grow our businesses, irrespective of the financial climate.
People buy from people who they know, like and trust.
At the Waterside Network Group we learn about one another’s businesses and get to know each other as individuals, so putting us in the position to confidently recommend one another, make referrals, and generate warm leads.
HOW IT WORKS
We meet weekly at Hythe & Dibden Parish Hall. Each member is given the opportunity to remind the group what it is they do and what kind of business they are currently looking for. Meeting include breakfast rolls, and a choice of tea or coffee.
One member per week will get an extended slot of about 5 mintues to share more detail about what they do. This isn’t about selling to group members, but educating them, so should they encounter a potential opportunity for you they can refer you to it.
These can be warm leads, where an individual is expecting your call, or a cold lead where an opportunity has been spotted by another member or a recommendation given on your behalf.
All leads are recorded at the meetings so we can track the effectiveness of the group. It’s quick and easy to do and the resulting benefits are well worth the effort.
NOT FOR PROFIT
You can attend a session as a guest for £10 which you can do up to three times, after which you'll be asked to apply for membership.
Membership costs are £25 per month with an annual fee of £50 payable in January. We are a “not for profit” group, so all money is spent on the running and promotion of the group.
