Could you use a part-time sales force to grow your business? Interested in getting more leads? How about talking with business owners/managers who have been there and can offer their advice? If so, then EARN is for you!
EARN, the Elgin Area Referral Network, is a members-only networking group where you can grow your business through networking. EARN groups are composed of non-competing businesses that get together regularly to generate new business for fellow members through a system of referrals and leads.
By meeting frequently, the businesses become well acquainted and build trust among the members. In time, leads are referred, and there is a greater opportunity for sales to be generated. Members also increase their visibility, their knowledge of the community, and their general knowledge of business.
Members of our EARN networking groups attend the scheduled referral meetings, provide referrals and leads, and report results.
Currently, the Chamber's three EARN groups have a limited number of openings. Each networking group offers a different operating style, from casual to highly structured. At our meetings, the agenda includes
*Introductions & business descriptions
*Craft Talk by a member
This EARN Too networking group meets the first and third Wednesday of each month from 12:00 Noon to 1:15 p.m. This group will track qualified referrals with each member on a quarterly basis that should include a name, contact information of someone who is, or will be, expecting to be contacted. Bring your continental breakfast with you to the meetings and share great conversation about business through the Chamber's EARN groups!
If you want to grow your business by joining this EARN group, or any of our others, or for more information, please contact Carol Gieske at 847-741-5660 or via email@example.com
