The Dahlonega Network is a Small BUSINESS LEADS Group, made up of fellow members of the Lumpkin County Chamber of Commerce, who work in conjunction with each other, to help, assist, promote, recomend, and encourage each other.
Since we are limited to ONE BUSINESS in each Business category; we learn what each fellow group member does in the course of their business. Later, when we are conducting our business with one of our clients, (and If we hear of a need) we can recommend, or suggest, one of our fellow group members to help meet our client's needs. We then "complete the circle" by notifying our fellow BUSINESS LEADS group member that we recommended them to one of OUR CUSTOMERS, and we provide the correct contact information to them. This gives our fellow group member the opportunity to contact this potential customer, who is in need of our particular service, make a sales pitch, and schedule an appointment with them.
Each member in the group ends up acting as an additional set of ears, to hear if anyone needs your services, and acts as a potential sales person for you, by recommending your services to this interested party. We find and share BUSINESS LEADS with each other.
Its a "WIN" for your customer that needed additional services, and its a "WIN" for your fellow group member when they are able to sell their services to an interested new client. WIN-WIN.
We are seen as a trustworthy local busness-person recommending another reliable and reputable local business-person, to help fulfill the customer's needs.
Our weekly group meetings afford the opportunity for each member to stand, be recognized, and to promote their business to the group, on a rotating manner. Your presentation is followed by a few follow-up questions and answers, to better help us know how/who to recommend your business to. Each week, a different member gets to stand and speak about their business to the group. This helps solidify each group member's personal ability with SELF-CONFIDENCE, PUBLIC SPEAKING, BUSINESS PROMOTION, ADVERTISING, ANSWERING QUESTIONS, and MAKING THE SALE, in a non-threatning manner, surrounded by fellow group members.
In many cases, you will find that your fellow group members are able to support, encourage, advise, and suggest ways to help improve your business, and help it grow.
