Column: Experience real social networking at Business After Hours
ESCANABA — What do Escanaba Country Club and U.P.utt Family Fun Center have in common? A few things actually, they both support golf, they are both Chamber members, and they both are sponsors of the first two Business After Hours held in more than 14 months. We are grateful to have such generous Chamber member businesses willing to host the monthly networking events.
Our members tell us that one reason they join the Chamber is because of the networking opportunities available to them. This is perhaps one of the most valuable membership benefits the Chamber can provide. That is just what Business After Hours is all about. It is an opportunity for members to get together, meet each other, and experience REAL SOCIAL NETWORKING!
Here’s why networking is important for your business:
– Businesspeople are more inclined to do business with people they know. Not only that, but they are also more inclined to refer friends, family, and their customers to someone they know.
– Business After Hours provides an excellent opportunity to get your company’s name, product, and services out there – to make yourself and your company better known. The schedule for 2021/2022 is filling quickly so reserve your spot now if you are interested in hosting a Business After Hours to help promote your business.
– Business After Hours is a great way to meet potential customers and increase your customer base. It is also an easy way to find the services you need or have been looking for right in your own backyard.
– Business After Hours takes place in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. What could be better? A monthly activity planned especially for you to help you promote your business.
So don’t think twice. Plan to attend the next Business After Hours beginning at 5pm on May 26th, sponsored by U.P.utt Family Fun Center and Elmer’s County Market. Bring your friendly smile to 2805 North Lincoln Road and give networking a shot! We can almost guarantee that you will be able to mix business and pleasure in almost equal quantities.
