tried to put together an event and not “fill up” the room…or had your expectations of your experience with an event shattered because you didn’t sell as much of a product you wished you would have….or had an opportunity when you are in transition to network for FREE with others that may be able to help you find a “job”(see meeting schedule)….or not sold your product at all at any networking venue or meeting you have ever been to..Well, let me ask you this question, have you taken advantage of every opportunity that a group has offered you?
Maybe, maybe not. There is a small percentage of networkers that will continue to struggle to sell their product or create an successful event due to the type of product he/she might sell, so continue to perservere on that note. Here at TBN Cincinnati/NKY we will help wherever and whenever we can. Here…we focus on what we give, not on what we get…..OPPORTUNITY. Have you ever heard the saying “teach them to fish and they will be able to eat for a while” (that is probably not exact, but you get the point). Have you tried to utilitze all that TBN has to offer?
Maybe, not. We have so much to give to you as a whole. Our events are well planned and operated. Our groups online will offer you opportunity to market your product or service for FREE to members and non-members. Make sure that you take full advantage of all of the meetings we have to get some face time at http://tristatebusinessnetwork.com/Weekly_Schedule.html. TBN Cincinnati schedule is on the left and TBN Northern Kentucky is on the right.
Our newest venture to help the community is called ServiceKonnections.com (not Live yet). This site will be a business-to-consumer e-commerce site. If you become a member you will get another opportunity to sell your product not only to those you are networking with, but also give you an edge to sell your product to the public. You must become a member to take advantage of the 6 months FREE on the site. This site will be Zip Code and Recommendation driven.

Disclaimer: Of course not everyone will be able to fill up an event or sell as much of their product due to their issues they may be having, so TBN can not be held responsible if YOU aren’t doing things right, but I think you get the point.
