ProfitCLUB offers more than networking over meals.
Can you make money networking over breakfast and lunch?
That is the premise of many networking groups and opportunities. Unfortunately, many prove to be a waste of time for the time-challenged business owner, who often discovers the time away from the office or the business doesn’t justify the weak stream of new leads or business generated from the networking group or event.
“In general, we can all agree networking is a great idea. The challenge is finding the time and maintaining the motivation to keep it up and make it a part of your business,” ActionCOACH Geoff Fairhurst says. “If you’re not really getting any business or having fun or getting any benefit, you’ll find it gets easier to stop going. That’s why we have oriented our ProfitCLUB differently than a conventional networking organization.”
ProfitCLUB is ActionCOACH’s version of a networking club. It is an exclusive collection of businesses from a range of categories that meet every other week.
Unlike some networking groups, however, ProfitCLUB is operates and runs just like a real business. Each ProfitCLUB is set up and run by members with the help of an ActionCOACH.
“ProfitCLUB has its own marketing systems in place to assist with each group’s growth,” Geoff Fairhurst says. “This is an alternative to relying on members bringing in new members all the time. That way, members can concentrate on the educational aspects of the meeting and in building their businesses rather than in building ours.”
Each ProfitCLUB meeting is oriented around a business building workshop conducted by an ActionCOACH, and every four weeks, monthly training sessions focus on specific topics ranging from sales, marketing, advertising and communications to leverage, team building, sales systems and overall strategies for success.
“One of the concepts in ActionCOACH is leverage – or the idea of doing ever more with ever less,” COACH Geoff Fairhurst explains. “ProfitCLUB fits this idea perfectly. Statistics have shown that the average person knows at least 200 other contacts. By being a member of ProfitCLUB, with an average of 15 to 20 total participants, you are looking at an instant network of 3,000-plus people who are hearing about your business, or your product or service on a regular basis. That’s a great example of how to productively leverage time out of a business owner’s busy day.”
Designed specifically for small-to-medium sized business owners, each ProfitCLUB event is designed to maximize an owners time at every level: from strategies on building business, to building a new, more vibrant network, to building profit and a better base of knowledge.
