Asheville Business Connections Lunch meeting

The purpose of this group is to build relationships and help each member's business grow through professional networking. No fees, no limits on who can be a member. Our focus is Power Marketing. Members are committed to helping each other take their businesses to the next level FAST by sharing information and flowing leads to each other. There is a structured format but there will be plenty of time to respectfully network with others before and after the meetings. - Leverage a team effort to help build your business. - Increase the value of your time with efficient networking strategies. - Get (and give) qualified referrals. - Present your business to members so that they know who is the best referral for you. - Set business goals and gain support for their accomplishment from within the group. Meeting format: 1) Grab your seat and a plate of food from the buffet. 2) Business card handout - BRING ENOUGH BUSINESS CARDS - at least 50! 3) The 1 minute "What I Do" speech - we go around the table. Craft your speech to comfortably fit into your 1 minute time slot :-) 4) Appreciation - anyone can mention anything or anyone that they appreciate. 5) Marketing Tips and Strategies Presentation featuring a local marketing expert. 6) Announcements - other business events in the area. 7) Partner up - everyone gets to partner up with another group member to meet with in the next week or so. See you there! Wayne Porter [masked]
