Business referral groups (also called tip clubs or leads groups) bring business people together on a regular basis, usually over breakfast or lunch, for the express purpose of generating business for each other. The best known group is the Chamber of Commerce.
Only one person from each profession or type of business is generally permitted. Each member is expected to generate a certain number of referrals each month and there’s a system for “keeping score”.
If you have people in your company who want to develop a personal referral network, this is a good place to start. You may need to participate in more than one group before you find the right fit.
Make a plan to search for business clubs in your area.
