When you want to buy something what do you do?
You’ll most likely go on line and do a search.
Then you ask the people you trust for a recommendation.
Turn that on its head: how do people find you and what your business is selling?
Wouldn’t it be great if you had a trusted network of people ready to recommend you to their friends?
Drive members use all the power of on-line networking combined with amazing face-to-face networking to build trusted relationships.
Drive members help each other to build their businesses, not by selling to each other, but by recommending the people they know are good at what they do.
Drive helps you to be RELEVANT and REMARKABLE and to build RELATIONSHIPS and REPUTATION – the cornerstones of modern marketing.
The networking game has changed
Without trust there can be no transactions!
Two of the world’s biggest market research companies, Nielsen and Gartner both say, when people are looking for a recommendation for a product or service, they go to their trusted network first.
People trust these recommendations 84% more than others.
So the way to get great recommendations quickly and consistently is to be part of these trusted networks.
The internet, social media and mobile-web technology have changed the way people connect, how they buy and who they trust.
Someone who is interested in what you sell is likely to have Googled you (not just your business), read your on-line profiles, checked your testimonials and asked someone they trust if they know you – all before you’re aware of their existence.
Drive brings business networking into the 21st Century …
Spend more time working than networking.
Make more contacts in less time.
Know who you’re going to meet.
Never make or listen to a pitch.
Build great relationships.
How is Drive different to every other networking group?
We all need to sell to stay in business.
However, nobody likes to be sold to.
