Are you missing out on new business opportunities that are on your doorstep? The way to find out is by getting actively involved in a marketing referral group that serves the area that you live or work in.

Online business networking in Congleton is a quick and easy way to connect with other business and to find out about what is happening in your local business community.

Understanding online business networking

Online business marketing is a form of referral marketing where companies find and secure new business leads through word-of-mouth recommendations.

Taking a range of forms, referral marketing meetings can be in-person or online, but the most important factor is that they unite like-minded business people looking for new opportunities.

The meetings give people the chance to pass on recommendations or raise awareness of the service or product that they offer.

Online business networking in Congleton takes place fortnightly through NetworkIN. Using an online-only forum allows the group to enjoy flexible and easy access to the benefits of referral marketing.

How does online business networking in Congleton work?

Members who sign up to networking groups often enjoy sector exclusivity so that they do not face any competition within their own specific group for the service that they offer. 

Each week a different member takes a turn to speak to the group about the service or product that they offer to raise awareness within their business community. 

Members can also use the meeting to get to know other members and to converse socially as a group.
