Through being your PPN – “Personal Professional Networker” – we save you lots of Time, Money and cut out meeting time wasters.
How cool is that!
By being your “Eyes and Ears” round the Business World I do your Homework needed to find the top relationships for you to grow your business. Professional Networking has always been a great way to start new business relationships and build up new clients. “Professional” thought is rarely how networking is done by most people.
The general perception on how to network can be very expensive and non productive. Networking events take an average of 4 hours of your working day. Most are attended adhoc with no idea of who will be there. Many people attending have no idea as to who their audience is.
People can pay around £1,500 per year for Membership. That’s usually followed by weekly costs to attend the meeting. Companies generally join more that one organisation. That can be a lot of investment without any idea as to what you hope to get back as no preparation is put into choosing which organisations, if indeed any, are best for your Company.
On top of the direct cash outlay, you must then commit XXX hours/week of your precious time to this group. What does that cost you in non-earned fees? Then, there’s the time dedicated to following up, arranging 1-1’s to see if these people will bring you any business. That’s a lot of hours away from work with no income. It’s a very costly way to find business.
So, what’s the alternative?
Instead of wasting your own precious time researching new business yourself, find a Specialist in the business. As your Personal Professional Networker, I can cut out so, so much of the unnecessary wasteful stuff.
Firstly, we spend some valuable time together to set a plan for your future business. From there we PLAN your Professional Networking. This cuts out all the adhoc meetings. There’s no need to pay heavy membership fees up front. No extra hours are wasted on doing what others tell you to do.
Instead we find you new business the professional way while you crack on with what you love. Don’t you just love to cut to the chase!
