Are you looking for new avenues to explore to drive your business forward? Do you want contacts that you can rely on for support and recommendations? Business networking events in the Staffordshire Moorlands will offer this and more.

The great strength of referral marketing is that it is trusted, tried and tested. More than anything people want to know that they are investing in a service or product they can believe in, and the recommendation-based model of referral marketing achieves that.

How will business networking help my business?

Referral marketing organisations stage regular events and meetings that bring together members of the business community to promote their business and recommend and commission others. 

These meetings and events give businesses a platform to discuss and promote their service or product while enabling members to make recommendations and commissions.

The aim is to have a connected group of individuals working together as a strong business community and to enjoy the benefits that brings.

What format do business networking events in the Staffordshire Moorlands take?

Business networking events in the Staffordshire Moorlands take place in different settings with groups of different sizes. While the format may change, the common aim remains to promote the work of your business and to seek and share recommendations. 

Examples of business networking events in the Staffordshire Moorlands that you may find are breakfast meetings with an early start, lunchtime meetings or evening meetings that also usually feature a meal. 

Many meetings coincide with traditional mealtimes to maximise the social nature of referral marketing. As well as generating connections, the events also seek to allow members to strike up genuine working relationships. 

At a typical referral marketing meeting, a different member of the group each time usually presents to the room about their business or product while there is also time to mingle and chat to possible or existing connections.
