Collaboration and Co-Op Marketing (working meeting)

Collaborate with skilled business leaders; gain insight, direction, and action steps. See below, the topic of this meeting. For this meeting, please bring cash for food, to make it easy to pay and leave a tip. There are no dues for this meeting. Please, come early and support the restaurant for hosting us.

How is the meeting organized?
1. One of the group reports on a topic he/she researched on marketing technology and media.
2. We help one-another implement marketing at the meeting in small groups.
3. Use what we learned to direct referrals to each other, so the "phone starts to ring" and bring in new business.
4. Plan the next topic and pick a speaker.
5. Target potential new members to invite and grow the group.

Sept 11th Title: "Referrals - Queen of New Relationships" Join our guest presenter, who is active and experienced in referral gathering.
Description: The topic of our next meeting, Wednesday, Sept 11th, is "New Revenue - the Second-Best Source" Some say referrals is the best source. We will discuss building contacts, referrals, and business development. The speaker will be announced. Since we are a collaboration group, in a group, we will help you solve the problems you have experienced finding success in referrals and gaining access to permission based marketing. Bring your laptops or tablet and begin taking action on gaining referrals while at the meeting, possibly generating business the next day! It might not even cost you anything!

The Collaboration & Co-Op marketing group meets every two weeks, for two hours, and to get this work done! (topic ideas below.) The first 30 minutes if for you to finish your lunch and meet people.

Topics will change from week to week, and include: Facebook, Twitter, Wordpress/Websites, attracting and tracking leads through the sales process, referrals & introductions, SEO, reputation management, co-op advertising, seminars, open-houses, after-hours, letters, Craigslist, Google+, discovering high-probability markets, targeting, cold-calling to make a warm call, realizing trust & respect in the sales process. Eliminate tactics that destroy trust because they look like twisting, trickery, and manipulation. Coupons, and sharing special offers among our databases. Why and how to Generate a database we control, instead of a marketing firm like FB. Best source of revenue is current clients. Second best source is referrals. All the rest is marketing and advertising for new business. Speed up the process of repeat business, and attracting referrals. Do I have prospects to refer which you want? Have our unique proposition available for prospects. Texting. Emailing. Mobile Web. Networking. Serving. Being Real. Sales Books. Management books.

Locations change, please check for location of upcoming meetings.

    Thank you everyone for your support. The group has grown quickly. I never imagined having 13-14 attendees and 20 members in such a short time. The information is useful and entrepreneurial encouragement is worth remembering. I look forward to seeing you again at the next meeting. Please RSVP for the next meeting.
