Our Job is Networking!!

July 25th, 2014

The Anoka Area Chamber of Commerce Benefit of the Week is “Networking!.” This benefit is one of the most important benefits we have. The Chamber’s job is to offer networking opportunities, your job is to take advantage of them. Whether it be attending the AM Connections Networking Group meetings that are held twice a month, the quarterly Wines & Steins Networking events, our Membership Luncheons or any other event that we have, networking is there for the taking. Networking is really not “selling” but rather “telling”. We’ll give you the chance to “tell” and from there the “sell” can happen. Remember, it’s not a benefit if you don’t use it.

Every day the Chamber office is called by the public or other businesses asking for referrals for products or services they need. As a member, we tell them about you. We don’t pick one member over the other, but tell them about all the members that cover their request and needs. We only tell those requesting referrals about Chamber members in good standing. That’s it, no one else, just members. You’ve done your first part and that is to join the Anoka Area Chamber of Commerce. Now it’s our time to go to work for you. Whether someone is looking for flowers, a motel or an accountant, we’ll tell them about Chamber members.
Do you need a product or service? Check out the yellow page section of the Chamber Magazine that we produce each year or call the Chamber office. Local partners using each others products and services is something we all should do more of.
