Happy 2010 . . . . I’ve asked Howard to join us today because of his expertise in helping businesses build their sales.
Today we’re going to talk about doing something that NO OTHERLocal business group is doing . . .
We are launching a new site for you…for everyone hereIt’s an online business card…But there will be things YOU need to do…
Use Web tools, the internet, and the people in this room.To build YOUR business and this group.
It’s not something we all do everydayWe’re all busy
Think about it. . . we can do something that NO OTHER business group is doing.
…for now we’re calling it a PORTAL…because sometime this Spring, BNI will have anew web format for the chapters.You will be able to pay dues online, check information, but MOSTLY. . . Get more business.And we can do this now.It’s like an online business card for the GROUP…Say for example Lin emails the site link to her friend who needs her carpets cleaned.Judy finds Ron’s number and then she may check the rest of the members She may find someone else on the site that she needs…it could be you.But it’s more than a directory -
Let’s use the site to showcase your presentation, and promote YOU.What if you took your notes and wrote a little BLOG post?…and you put that on your own site…if you can’t do that… post on the group site…Add a videoAdd an offerAs presenter of the week you will get top billing on the site…With links to your own site.Howard can answer questions about how this
take a look at the person sitting next to you…If they asked YOU to write a comment on their blog post could you do that?Would they do it for YOU?
If they send your blog post or linkto their contacts…would you do it for them?
