At our meetings, each member has an opportunity to introduce themselves, speak briefly about their business, and tell the group what kind of business or referral would be ideal for them each week. Members are encouraged to share business cards, and are encouraged/expected to take extra cards to share with others.
Business networking is socializing for business purposes and is important for many reasons. In the Brainerd Lakes area, many business transactions are based on trust, relationships, and word of mouth recommendations. Networking for your business helps strengthen all three to create business opportunities in the Brainerd area. Business networking puts a face behind your business, allowing people to get to know you while strengthening their trust in your company. Networking through Lakes Area Networking Group helps you build your business through meeting other business owners while exchanging business leads, referrals, and testimonials with other members of the group.
