Are you looking for a great way to build your business?

Joliet Chamber Business Builders will give you the opportunity to meet weekly with 20-30 other business professionals. If you are the type of person that can generate good referrals from your line of work and would be happy to receive quality leads in return to further your business, let us know.

During the meeting time, you will have numerous chances to explain your line of work in order to educate those around the room. In time it will seem as if those 20-30 people will be working for you.

Although the main focus is on generating more business, the group can provide a great way to become more comfortable speaking in front of a crowd. Also, you will have a chance to perfect a short sales pitch, pick up on ideas and practices that you may have never thought of, and bounce ideas off of professionals from different walks of life.

Many of the professionals in the group are currently in or have participated in other referral groups. John Weiffenbach, W W Data Systems, has found that referral groups are the best way to market his business. A couple of our members are in up to 3 or 4 groups in different communities because they have found that the system does work, but you need to come out and see for yourself.

Our Friday group meets at the Timbers of Shorewood, 1100 N. River Rd., beginning their meeting at 8:00 AM. Please call the Chamber office and ask for Mike Paone or Lisa Jones to see if your business category has been filled.
