Business Meeting Advantages
It never ceases to astound me how a member during a Key Business Meeting will say to me “Donna, I didn’t know you did that!” The fact is that 60 seconds is not enough time to say everything you do. In fact it’s often hard to get across not only everything you do but also how you do it, and also your business philosophies and how you look after your customers.
I’ve been in networking groups which meet weekly for many years now and I’ve found time and time again that I get the best and most leads after I’ve had a meeting with one of my members. It’s simply a fact that if someone knows you better and what you do better and feels connected with you, then they are more likely going to give you leads. So if you want more leads, get out there and have a Key Business Meeting with more members.
Personally I love to have a Key Meeting after the main meeting; this ensures I have one a week AND it’s convenient. We are both there – so it’s easy to just stay an extra hour and have a meeting. Whether you devote the hour to one member or split the time (my preference, as I like to share) the important thing is to be prepared and of course be sure to listen to the other person.
