Our next event costs $10 per person.? Someone told me that $10 per person was too much.
Have you attended other Meetup events or other networking events in Midtown Manhattan with a similar structure and extras for less than $10?? I am not aware of any.
Is $10 per person too much when everyone receives a comprehensive attendee report (CAR)?

With the CAR, you will have everyone's contact information in a spreadsheet emailed to you within 72 hours.? That really helps ease the follow-up process.

Also, you get to meet and speak to a best-selling, award-winning author (Jennifer Wilkov, jenniferwilkov.com), you get take-home materials, special promos from our sponsors, and can get 3 chances to win free prizes via a free business card drawing.
This is truly a bargain.? I don't make money from the 'door'.? The $10 per person barely handles the expenses associated with renting the meeting space.
My income is earned from back-end sales / following-up with attendees to get referrals after the event - after people get to know me, like me, trust me, and have confidence in my competence.

"Brand humility is the only response to a fast-changing and competitive marketplace. The humble brand understands that it needs to re-earn attention, re-earn loyalty and reconnect with its audience as if every day is the first day." --Seth Godin
Pondering these words from marketing expert, Seth Godin, while planning the future of this Meetup group, I know one thing that's for certain:
That the absolute truth behind this short statement summarizes a world of discovery and understanding about what we cannot and should not, as business owners forget about.
That every day brings more, new, fresh insights and opportunities to reconnect with our audience, fans, tribe, and customers. Another chance, to help others and make new friends!
Nor, should you forget that your businesses is unique and special because you work to make it so, and consistently strive to offer something different -- something better -- something more useful compared to what's already out there.
So what can you do every day to leverage on all the days before today? What can you do that costs you absolutely nothing?
Before checking email or returning those phone calls, why not start the day off by connecting first with your business-self, first?
Remind yourself just what it is that's so special about your business.
For a minute or two, reflect upon the valuable services you provide, the innovative products you've created, and especially the trust and respect you've earned from people who do business with you.
This little bit of time that you invest in yourself at the beginning of each day will pay off a thousand-fold with new wins and you'll reach your milestones a whole lot faster.
How does it work?
You've heard the expression, "pay yourself first"?
It's very much the same thing. Because when you invest a few, precious moments out the most valuable part of your day to reinforce your business confidence it'll stay with you all day long.
Now that you've established that, "There's No Business Like Your Business!" go ahead, answer the phone... or, better still, register for our next Meetup!
Hope we'll Meetup soon!
