Sunshine Networking is developing new and distinct groups for networking in the SW Florida area. Below you will find the basic information for these groups, and we welcome you to contact us for more information or to register to become a member!
Sunshine Networking focuses on building lasting business relationships. This means we aren’t taking attendance. We aren’t counting referrals and $ referred. We do encourage one-on-one meetings, but we don’t require them.
The reality is, we are all adults, and we are all seeking the same thing… referrals. If you build a quality relationship with others in the group, referrals will come. Forcing others to refer within the group makes no sense (we call these “blind referrals”). Our goal is to develop these relationships so that everyone truly wants to refer business throughout the group.
Membership is for one group unless multiple group memberships are purchased. In addition, membership is organized by the company, not the individual. So if you have 2 or 3 salespeople/managers, etc, they can all attend a group meeting for your company at no extra cost.
Membership is industry exclusive. When you register as a member, you will be locking out your competition!
When & Where?
We have multiple distinct groups meeting weekly. Each group is independent of the others, and your membership is in only one group unless you purchase memberships in multiple groups.
What can you expect each week?
The meeting is during lunch. You are responsible for your own lunch purchase. An abbreviated menu (approximately 3 choices) will be made available each week (not a requirement).
A friendly, energetic environment will be fostered. You will meet like-minded people interested in building relationships.
How much does it cost?
We seek to keep expenses low, and therefore the membership cost is low. It is only $200 per year to join a group. Compared to others, we are roughly 1/4 the cost… but we believe we will develop better relationships due to our focus.
How are we different from other networking organizations?
1. Focused on relationship building… not blind referrals
2. Members vote on membership renewals
3. Company focused, not individual-focused
4. Less stringent… if you participate and build relationships, you will stay and earn referrals
5. Lower cost
