Networking with Other Local Businesses

My intern and I had the pleasure of attending a Manatee Chamber of Commerce Networking Event on Tuesday, July 14th!  What a great event!  We had such a wonderful time meeting new people, marketing Duncan Real Estate, and gathering new business leads.  Why wouldn’t you be a member of your local chamber and take advantage of the many benefits it offers to members.

Before the event, my intern and I made a few “give away” prizes to be given out at the event.  During a networking event, everyone puts his/her business card when they arrive, and towards the end of the event, the Chamber does a drawing for different prizes.  This is such a simple and easy way to market your business.  The Chamber always thanks each business for the donations and then the winner gets your prize and business information right then and there!  As the saying goes “you get what you give”!  The grand prize was a 39″ TV and I was the lucky winner of this fabulous TV!  How fun is that!

Thank you to Peace River Electric for hosting such a lovely chamber event and especially for the TV that I won!  I will for sure continue to attend the chamber events and bring Duncan Real Estate door prizes!  Here is to supporting local businesses and doing business with one another!
