4 Great Reasons To Join 

1. To Win New Business 
As a 'go-ahead' business you need to continually generate new sales, and that's what members tell us is the number one reason they join The Business Club. It is because of that reason that membership of The Business Club is designed to build strong relationships between members and generate opportunities to: 
 
Sell directly to other members 
Gain introductions into companies you specifically want to do business with 
Receive referrals from other members 
Be introduced, by members, to their contacts 
Sell directly to guests attending the various Club events 
 
Membership of The Club can make a significant contribution to your marketing database - in addition to the 100 plus member companies we attract up to 65 guest companies and speakers through the year - that's a total of 165 named M.D.'s that you can meet. 
2. To Raise Your Profile 
Selling your products and services is so much easier if your prospects are already aware of your company, they recognise your brand, and they have an understanding of the value of what you offer. 
 
As a member of The Business Club the profile of your business will be raised through . . . 
 
Members meeting you at Club events, being made aware of your offering and talking about you to their contacts. 
The continuous stream of guests who regularly attend Club events and are made aware of you, your business and what you can do for them. 
Promoting your business to other members through your entry on The Business Club web site, to which every member has access. 
Non Members visiting our website can see your member listing with a direct link to your website. 
3. To Build Strategic Alliances 
Strategic alliances can be an extremely powerful way for you to gain access to new business opportunities, opportunities you certainly would never have had. They can take several forms such as :- 
 
Linking up with a complementary business to offer a wider service e.g. a computer hardware company and an IT support company. 
Sharing customers and databases with non-competing members who sell into the same markets as you. For example, an Accountant and a Lawyer. 
Forming an alliance to share specific referrals. For example a commercial estate agent and a signage company, a security company, a printer and an office furniture company. 
 
There have been many, many, instances of members developing strategic alliances which have resulted in the generation of literally hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of new business.  
4. To Develop: 
To develop :-  
New Ideas 
New Skills 
Profitable Processes 
As business people we are all limited by our own experience – we don't know what we don't know! It is for this very reason that The Business Club ensures that a varied and balanced programme of first class speakers, workshops, presentations and interactive 'Ask The Specialist' events are held. Each event is designed to stimulate your business thinking, to give you methods, ideas and processes that are proven, innovative and valuable. These events encourage members to share ideas and best practice. 
 
As a Business Club Member, it's the quality and innovative content of your events which always ensure high numbers of attendees. The format and structure is what then creates guaranteed opportunities for you to develop new and strong relationships which invariably lead to doing great business.

"I joined the Business Club in March for two main reasons; to continue my personal development and also to generate new leads for the Business. Whilst initially sceptical about committing to a networking event I could not be more pleased with the results - within 6 months we picked up over 15 new clients!" 
James Krappe - Really Social Media www.reallysocial.media  
How much of a difference could that sort of result make to your business?
