Networking in the Power Zone

Capitalizing on Your Business’ Open House

You’ve just scheduled your open house, business after hours social, or customer holiday party. This is your chance to invite customers and potential customers into your office — this is your Power Zone. This is your chance to engage every member of your organization to visit one-on-one with your prospects and valued customers to pave the way to new and repeat business.

How many socials have you added where the owner hired a great caterer, sent out hundreds of invitations, purchased prizes to give away, and adorned their employees with logo apparel? Way too often, the employees huddle in an out-of-the-way corner and talk amongst themselves instead of build relationships with attendees. This represents a lost opportunity to turn prospects into customers or introduce customers to other services.

You’ve made a large investment in the event. Now invest one hour of your team’s time to learn the important principles of networking in the power zone. Create an unforgettable experience and your guests will remember you next time they need your product or service.
