You know you need to get out there and network to build visibility and make contacts to grow your business. The challenge is that networking takes time and money and all of us have crazy schedules already. There is nothing more frustrating than joining an organization and finding out that the fit is not a good one. And sometimes you want to go to more than one event before you put your money down!
Enter ‘The Observation Deck’ – the brainchild of Madeline Chapman, with the Orange County Chapter of National Women in Construction. She wants to attract more new members to their chapter so they can realize the benefits of membership for building business success, but she also realized how tight time was for many women. So she has created the Observation Deck – any woman can drop into any NAWIC Orange County meeting at any time and stay for as long or as little as they want. A separate table will be set aside for the Observation Deck and you can check out what the organization is all about without any pressure.
This is a great marketing idea and one you want to consider if you are looking to attract new members to your organization. I hope more groups follow her lead.
Many women settle for less simply because they undersell themselves. I am speaking at the Canadian Women in Communications luncheon on October 4th on â€œ10 Deadly Mistakes of Selling Yourself and Your Businessâ€. This presentation identifies those things we do that hinder, alter and affect our success. Whether you own a business or work for a company, knowing how to sell yourself and your work effectively, is the best tool for achieving your goals.
