Business Groups that Help your Business 

When you are a business owner you are absorbed in finding new customers and doing the technical aspects of providing your service or product. Finding groups that offer support or information is time consuming. Let me help!Networking groups – I’m speaking more to formal tip club groups at which a variety of businesses meet weekly and commit to give leads and to promote each other’s business. Realtors, bankers, attorneys, plumbers and the like learn about each other’s business and the services offered and look for opportunities to share what they learn about you and your services with their own customers. Advocacy groups – These groups may be specific to your town, or region, or may be statewide or national merchant groups such as your local Chamber of Commerce, or the NFIB provide advocacy for business. The groups are comprised of retailers, manufacturers, service providers, non-profits and large and small businesses so they don’t always take perfect care of you. But when there are 80,000 members of a group such as NAWBO – the National Association of Women Business Owners- that’s more clout than you have with you 20 employees have on your own.Training groups- SBA and other resources provide free or low-cost training and help for procurement of government contracts, or marketing help, and also help with writing a business plan or securing financing for your business.Trade Associations- May also provide advocacy and training for the specific needs of your business.Marion R.
