The Santa Rosa Metro Chamber is excited to offer our members a new way to grow your business – through a lead generation and direct referral program called MetroConnect. The mission of this new program is to generate business opportunities for Metro Chamber members through building and strengthening professional relationships in a mutually supportive environment.
Our metro area marketplace is full of great products and services. With very few exceptions someone else is selling—or is about to sell—your product or service. Success or failure rests on gaining a competitive edge. This is where the resources of referral groups have helped so many professionals.
By joining a MetroConnect group you’ll gain access to a diverse talent pool that you can turn to for insights and expertise. Structured bi-weekly meetings are designed to refer business within each group, focus on professional development, and capitalize on strategic partnerships. Following are the core competencies that guide the Chamber’s MetroConnect groups:
Perfect your sales presentations, speaking skills, leadership, marketing plans, selling techniques and many other skills. By capitalizing on the varied abilities of your peers you will become more polished and greater able to achieve results.
Focus on uncovering and identifying your power partners. History has proven this process to be a meaningful & efficient way to build business relationships.
As the most sought-after benefit of each MetroConnect group, receiving referrals cannot be rushed. Meaningful referrals are rarely exchanged without an investment in professional development and personal capital, which is why joining a MetroConnect group will place you on a better path to success.
Community support and engagement matters. Therefore, the Metro Chamber will donate 5% of each group’s MetroConnect program dues to a charity or charities of that group’s choice.
