CIBN Memberships with a Choice

CIBN Membership

Membership – Has Advantages!

Networking is about building real and lasting relationships. Real networking when it is done properly is very profitable. When it is not done correctly it can be a waste of your time. In business, time is money, so you can’t afford to be ineffective at networking.

80% of businesses go out of business in their first 5 years. Guess how many active, participating CIBN Members have gone out of business in Calgary in the last 4 years of a recessed economy? Zero. Nada. Not even one. Do you think we may have added to their profitability somewhat?

Large MeetUp groups look very impressive. When you arrive there may be 200 people in the room. It is exciting to shake hands with all of these people and to exchange so many business cards, but what do you do with those business cards? The reality is that most people are too busy to make 200 phone calls the next day, so it was largely a waste of time. It takes 7 – 14 touches to make a sale and while this may be one touch, it hardly even qualifies as such because how did you stand out from the other 199 people who were there? Will they even remember you if did call them?

In a large group you are sifting, and sifting, trying to find the one needle in the haystack that may be a potential customer for you. It is not so much about who those people know, it is more about finding “the one.” Good luck to you. Even if you found them and identified them, you will only get their business through a thorough follow up. That will be the next necessary step to make the event pay for your time. Since most business owners don’t do that follow up they encounter many wasted opportunities. At the CIBN we guide our Members to implement effective follow up systems and we train them how to touch and retouch the potential client, so even these large meetings can become more profitable for them.

Real networking however, is better done with a group of people who are really getting to know you. Then it really does not matter who is in the room or if they qualify to do business with you. Instead you are working with a group of people who are highly motivated to become your marketing arm. You are saving thousands of dollars a year, because you don’t need to hire a complete marketing team, you have one. It is right in the room with you. As this group of business owners gets to know, like and trust you, they send you business. They don’t have to do business with you at all. They send you their clients, their friends, their relatives, and their high school buddy who now owns the franchise rights for the whole province. In this way, every member of this team is valuable because they know others who are not in the room. They each know dozens of people really well and thousands more on social media. At the CIBN we teach our Members how to farm for these connections and we train our Members to go deeper than the obvious list of people who live in their own households.

We have a variety of Memberships to assist our Members. We have weekly referral clubs which are the best if you have the time for weekly networking, but we also have something for those who cannot make a weekly commitment. We have online clubs, we have a powerful Women’s Network, we have a MasterMind Group, and Sponsorship levels. With each of these Memberships we offer some very valuable perks and additional training. We truly desire each of our business owners to succeed in their businesses so we offer a Networking Boot Camp valued at $700 and a Social Media Boot Camp valued at another $700 for our Members AND THEIR STAFF AND PARTNERS! With the price of Membership you get an additional $1400 in training!

With $1400 of training you are immediately in the profit zone when you join the CIBN. You immediately gain in knowledge more than you have spent on Membership. Applying even one of the tips you learn in these sessions will profit you thousands of dollars over the next 12 months, and that is before you got even one warm lead. Do you see the value in that?

CIBN Social Media Net

Social Media Boot Camp $700 Value

Everyone is concerned about social media for their business and they should be, because this is something that is not going away. With every passing year social media marketing is becoming more and more important to businesses from all industries. Whether you want to do it or not, social media is where people are, and that is where you need your products and services to be found as well.

Entrepreneurs struggle with social media. Many of them find it an impossible task that takes up too much time and they are uncertain about how to measure their outcomes. They may begin to develop good content only to find that they do not have the audience through a significant number of real and local connections for it to be profitable.

 

The CIBN is in a unique position to educate business owners about social media, and how to navigate the waters of profitability. Why? It has been our main source of marketing since our inception. For many years we have done nothing but social media. We have created, measured and refined entire social media strategies that have worked very well for us, and we have now put them into a Social Media Boot Camp to share them with our Members. These are simple, systematic methods that can be just as effective for you as they have been for us. Many of our Members have been reporting amazing results, even up to 7000 times the traffic to their website after only a few weeks of implementing one of these tips.

 

Social Media Boot Camp is not meant to provide you with an entire marketing program, or to replace what a professional can do for you. We highly recommend using many of the professionals in our network. However, most business owners do not even know what an expert could or should be doing for them. They don’t know how to measure results or what the basics are to even monitor. Social Media Boot Camp gives you enough education to make more qualified decisions about ads that you are purchasing, people that you are hiring and where to spend the little bit of time that you have more effectively.

 

At Social Media Boot Camp you get a full day of training on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and the Google review system. We teach you easy ways to create content and then automate it through these channels as well as how to build an autoresponder email systems that prospects and clients will opt in for so they will willingly be touched by your offers 7 – 14 times increasing your sales numbers.

 

At Social Media Boot Camp we also learn about blogging. Think about how short and simple blogs, or quick video blogs, on your website, or even articles attached to your Facebook or LinkedIn profile could bring more recognition to your work. At the Social Media Boot Camp we give you some direct training on this subject and we show you how to set it up so it leads back to you in the form of sales. We show you how to get your articles featured in other arenas so you can be listed as an expert in your industry. Within the network we also help you capitalize on collaborative relationships where you can write on other’s sites and they can write for you. Do you think this might be valuable to you?

 

We show you how to harness the power of social media whether you are a big business with many pages to your website, or a solopreneur operating only off Facebook. You will be amazed!
