When I was in acupuncture graduate school, my Practice Management professor taught us the power of word-of-mouth networking. Print advertising really doesn’t work for acupuncturists. I mean, let’s think about it. Would you go to an acupuncturist you saw an ad for in the paper or an acupuncturist who was recommended to you by a friend or colleague? Exactly. My professor introduced us to the Chamber of Commerce and BNI, Business Network International. When I graduated, I looked into becoming members of both organizations.
The Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce has been an amazing influence on my business over the past 10 years but BNI has been pivotal in building my business and learning how to network correctly, efficiently, and professionally. With that said, the Marlborough BNI chapter is having their annual Visitor’s Day on April 28th at the FISH Restaurant (corner of Granger and Bolton streets), from 7-8:30am. The format will be open and everyone will get a chance to speak but it won’t be a normal meeting. I invite anyone who wants to grown their business to come and see if BNI would work for you. We are looking for property/casualty insurance sales people, chiropractors, day care providers, landscapers, event planners, hairdressers, and so many more seats to be filled! If you are interested, please feel free to reach out and I can explain more!
