People who grow their business in the SME sector need all the help they can get. But who can you trust? Thanks to our partners at the Business Builders Group, you have friends in high places.
Small and medium business owners enjoy their independence, but perhaps not all the responsibilities and challenges that come with it.
For example, finding the time, the funding and the ideas to keep a business growing can be a daunting challenge. These resources are often in short supply at SMEs and together with a lack of access to the right prospects and advice they constitute a major barrier to growth.
Pursuing a business development programme without these resources can be a very frustrating and lonely experience especially when no-one seems to be listening and there’s no shoulder to lean on.
That’s why joining Business Builders Group can be a game-changer. It doesn’t require much time or money yet it provides good advice, a steady flow of new business prospects and a number of shoulders to lean on.
The founders of this high-growth initiative recognised that many SMEs lack the resources to realise their growth potential. So they developed an organisation to provide them.
They created a forum where SME owners can accelerate their business growth through access to expert advice, problem-solving, collaboration with and referrals from their peers. Underpinned by the BBG core strategy of developing Know Like and Trust, relationships between members develop into a mutually beneficial new business referral programme where they gain leads through personal endorsement. BBG facilitates and mentors like-minded SME owners to become active referral ambassadors and advocates for the businesses of other members. Furthermore, this can also lead to joint new business initiatives between members.
The costs and timing involved in BBG membership are tailored to the capacity of busy SME owners, a flexibility not often afforded. BBG members comprise solicitors, accountants, business consultants, physiotherapists, manufacturers, travel agents, financial planners and many more.
BBG special events such as Mastermind Lunches and network-wide Gala Events offer the opportunity for members to bring along their own clients and prospects at no charge thus providing valuable reinforcement for their customer retention and acquisition programmes.
The costs and timing involved in BBG membership are tailored to the capacity of busy SME owners, a flexibility not often afforded. It is without question the most cost-effective way for them to accelerate and concentrate their business building operations through gaining the benefits of experience, expertise and the right contacts.
They gain the assurance and confidence that they are not alone and realise that their problems and challenges are not only shared by their peers but that many have been successfully addressed by them as well. So why reinvent the wheel?
