Just had a call from a guy, asking if I'd be interested in joining the local networking group.
approx Â£10 per week, meeting every Friday and currently 32 other trades and professionals in there, only 1 trades profession per group.
told me I could have exclusivity on plastering and rendering.
whats everyone's thoughts, anyone tried such a thing.
ta lads, MAC
Sounds like BNI Â£10 for the breakfast weekly!
Â£1000 for there annual fee!
Imagine sitting at a table with 32 "business" people promising the world to you then you sign up and nothing materialises..
You have to attend or find a stand in weekly or they can and will strike you off with no refund.
Very political an American just do a search for BNI reviews..
They will all say our group are laid back and really friendly not like the others you've heard of!!
At the end of the meeting you will get taken aside for the newbie sales patter to try and get you to sign up there and then.
You have to give a recommendation every week so expect a lot of time wasted following up on leads etc etc..
They all seem credible in there suits etc, until you delve a little deeper, 5 of the people I spoke to were not even trading!! You get a lot of start ups trying it to help build there client list..
Maybe try the chamber of commerce as I've heard that's not half as expensive or time consuming
