MY BACK STORY: I help established business owners and savvy entrepreneurs to connect with their existing customers and create customer loyalty that converts to ongoing sales. But I was having trouble getting myself out there.
I WAS HAVING ISSUES: I didn’t have a very big network – I only had about 400 followers – and no one really knew me and I wasn’t well-known in my industry. People didn’t understand the value I could provide to their business.
MY REASON FOR JOINING: I had only attended one MeetUp event prior to attending the half-day workshop but I saw the value in the overall concept and how as the organiser of the group you could leverage your time more efficiently by speaking to a group of people as opposed to only a few when attending networking events.
I was so impressed by the value provided at the half-day workshop, which included tips and strategies around Facebook as well that I saw the two-day intensive as a huge opportunity to leverage MeetUp on a larger scale, grow my network and establish myself as a person of influence.
MY INCREDIBLE OUTCOME: Since the two-day workshop I have established my personal brand and gained exposure as a person of influence, boosted my confidence and increased my followers.
FUTURE VISION: To be doing business in a world where people are connecting as human beings, putting relationships first, appreciating their customers and CARING.
WHAT YOU MUST KNOW FIRST: The two-day intensive is energetic and Francesca is a giver. You will be held accountable and everything she teaches can be actioned straight away. She makes things fun, focuses on results and always offers value and encourages us to do the same.
MEMBERSHIP LEVEL: GOLD (It was the only option at that stage)
BENEFITS OF THE MAFIA: It’s a great community of like-minded business owners and entrepreneurs who always support each other and provide value to everyone in the group.
