Action Changes Things

‘It’s easy to make a buck. It’s a lot tougher to make a difference’, Tom Borkaw

Make a difference with your business 2

Talk to any small business owner in the bloom of their business and you’ll hear raw passion, inspiration and a definite desire to achieve. Many business owners I meet, tell me how they find themselves doing something they never really dreamed of doing but something they can’t imagine not doing! You just have to scratch the surface and sure enough you’ll find it’s no coincidence they do what they do.

Passion can motivate you to follow your dreams or answer a calling but running a business and being responsible for every decision can dull the edge or knock the wind out of your sails from time to time!

At Busy Bee Networking this season we are focussed on shining up your passion and reawakening your love affair with the business you run! We’re going to help you realign your motivation and direct all your efforts to making a difference, going the extra mile and delighting your customers by offering them the best customer service ever!

At the weekly sessions we will look at how you can go the extra mile and make a difference with your business and explore strategies for improving business activities and trying something new. Should you play it safe with your core business activities or explore alternatives? Are you up to speed with your customers’ changing needs, and how can you be sure they are delighted with the service you offer?

Remember it’s no coincidence you do what you do – so let’s shine up your passion for your business and make a difference, for you, your customers and the world you work in!

Make a Difference with your Business, push the boat out, go the extra mile and give great customer service!

Book your place at any of the upcoming events – members and non-members are always welcome.

Show Off Your Brand Credibility

brand-on-the-wallThis season at Busy Bee Networking we’re encouraging you to ‘Show off your Brand Credibility’ and influence key individuals in your target market. Get your core message right and craft content that will engage, educate and entertain your target market. We’ll show you how to create stories that will influence information overloaded consumers, and encourage them to sit up and take notice of your business, once and for all!

Brand Credibility is built on the trust and confidence your ideal clients have in your brand, and your consistent response and high quality delivery. Offering a product or service rooted in authority, authenticity and transparency and delivered with empathy and real understanding of the needs of your clients, engenders trust and nurtures brand credibility. Listening you’re your clients and learning with them to deliver an outcome that they need and want, shows you are real, sincere and truly responsive to their needs within the your area of expertise.
It’s important to communicate what you offer in a clear and consistent way while outlining what you can, and will do, to achieve the outcome that best serves your clients. Knowing who they are and what they need is one thing but getting them to really trust you to deliver a quality service, is another. This is where influencers can help – focusing your marketing activities on key individuals that have influence over potential buyers can make it easier to get your trusted marketing message out to more of your target market.

brand-credibilityOver the coming Weeks at Busy Bee Networking meetings in Hale, Chorlton, Didsbury and Knutsford, we’ll focus on developing Brand credibility and crafting a marketing message that engages key influencers in your target market.
