When Ron and Courtney Field first started their web development business in Gwinnett, they had few established ties to the business community. Hours of cold calling for their new business, Reach2Save.com, did little to increase their exposure to the market.
After joining the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce, the Fields became faithful converts to the power of networking. The personal contacts made through the Chamber helped grow their business and expand their exposure to Gwinnett#s thriving business community.
Recognizing the need for a single source for locating business-networking opportunities, the Fields developed www.gwinnettnetwork.com. This one-stop resource is the first dedicated to listing weekly and monthly networking opportunities for Gwinnett#s business community. The site also includes weekly and archived articles by local business experts, tips on effective networking, marketing and closing a sale.
Networking is often overlooked by job seekers as the most effective method of finding employment. Whether you#re among the recently downsized or just looking to improve your current situation, www.gwinnettnetwork.com#s job seeker#s page contains the information needed for an effective search, including links to some of Gwinnett#s most comprehensive job sites.
“Statistics show that more than 60 percent of all personal referrals result in a closed sale,” said Ron Field. “The single best way to generate those referrals is through networking.”
