I know, as a business owner, one of the most important things you can do is to network with other professionals in your field. Networking not only helps you to grow your business but it also allows you to form valuable relationships with other like-minded individuals. That's why I am excited to share my experience with the BING networking group in Oklahoma City and how it has helped me grow my website design business, Ross and Roll, as well as my Airbnb Business through referrals, networking, and even friendships.
BING (Business Information Network Group) is a local business networking group that meets weekly to share referrals, business opportunities, and to build relationships with other professionals in the Oklahoma City area. I joined BING about two years ago, and it has been a game-changer for my business.
One of the main benefits of being a member of BING is the ability to generate referrals. As a freelance website designer, my business relies heavily on referrals and word-of-mouth marketing. Since joining BING, I have been able to generate a steady stream of new clients through referrals from other members of the group as well as serving some of the members of our group (including this website). Not only have these referrals helped to grow my business, but they have also helped me to establish myself as a trusted and reliable website designer in the community. In addition to generating referrals, BING has also helped me to build valuable relationships with other business owners in my community. These relationships have been instrumental in helping me to grow my business, as well as providing me with valuable insights and advice on how to improve my services. I have also been able to collaborate with other members of the group on various projects, which has been a great way to expand my skillset and learn from others.
But perhaps the most surprising benefit of being a member of BING has been the friendships that I have formed with other members. As a small business owner, it can be easy to feel isolated and alone at times, especially since I mostly work from home. However, through BING, I have been able to form genuine friendships with other business owners who understand the challenges and struggles that come with running a business. These friendships have been a source of support and encouragement, and have helped me to stay motivated and focused on my goals.
If you're a business owner in the Oklahoma City I would love to help you with your website needs or invite you to be my guest at BING!
