8 Reasons to Join a Networking Group

Why join a network group?

There are thousands of reasons to join a networking group or organization. And not just any group will do. If your business has had to make a pivot during the recent pandemic, you also understand the importance of getting in front of a networking group that is holding weekly zoom meetings to stay connected.

Monmouth Networking Exchange is not a BNI. We do conduct ourselves in a similar fashion but are much more user friendly and more cost effective in growing your network.

Here are 8 great reasons you should join Monmouth Networking Exchange.
  1. Expanding your knowledge – Most professional organizations have a diverse membership which includes the opportunity to meet and hear about other business, trends, and talk to other sales people or business owners about what is trending.
  2. Taking charge of your career path – With so many professionals in one place at one time, you will be expanding your knowledge and guiding your career down a path toward success. You never know who you might meet.
  3. Enhancing you Network – Everyone would like more business. Making connections is critical. Although on-line methods to connect and network has come a long way, you cannot substitute a face to face connection.
  4. Be a leader – All professional groups have committees and opportunities to take the lead. Joining a networking group allows you to take charge, join a subcommittee or lead in ways you might not have existed previously.
  5. Mentoring – This can be a most rewarding part of joining any group. Giving back allows you to have friendships and find other people with similar backgrounds and interests.
  6. Make new friends – Once you leave school it becomes more difficult to break out of your shell. Joining a professional networking group is a great way to forge new business and personal relationships.
  7. Community – There is a certain pride in giving back to the community. Many networking groups have members that spearhead community efforts for the homeless or other local charities.
  8. Staying Inspired – Staying motivated can sometimes be a challenge. Being part of a strong networking group can mean the difference in any company that joins one. You can often be inspired by people in your group who might help you along in your journey of success.

Why Network with us?

The Monmouth Networking Exchange offers many benefits for increasing your sales and gaining new leads. 

Each week we have a new speaker!

Our speakers are typically members. Each week a new member is featured and speaks about various topics which inform, educate and inspire. Each week we discover something new about an individual and the business they represent. The information is meant to help you understand the individual and the professional services they provide. These mini-seminars are designed to be quick, focused and to the point and always end with an open discussion including a question and answer period.

Hone Your Networking Skills!

Public speaking is always a challenge for people. We offer the opportunity to fine tune your elevator speech each week and condense it down to a 30 second commercial spot. As we go around the room each member stands up and talks about who they are, what they do and what would be a good, useful or valuable “lead” for them.

Our One-On-One Sessions!

We encourage our new members to sit “one on one” with other established members of the group. During these working sessions, you learn more about fellow members and their businesses. These one-on-one sessions are the heart and soul of the Monmouth Networking Group.  This one on one time encourages each member to show off some of your professional skills, share success stories and exchange leads.

Special Events!

We have quarterly events that replace our weekly meeting. Usually at night and in a more casual atmosphere, these events allow us to “let our hair down” and really get to know each other on a more personal level. These events are also exciting because all members are encouraged to be a guest to the event.

Why Us?

Monmouth Networking Exchange is different from a BNI or LeTip. It is more casual. We encourage and respect each other and work as a team toward a mutual goal of sharing new business leads and helping our community at large.
