20+ years in sales has always been about hitting the phones and making call after call after to call to win business. While I have had great success, I am always looking for personal development and additional routes to market as a way to grow our business. In 2015 I began looking at networking and BNI in particular as another avenue for business growth.
It was at this time I met with Dave and he captivated me with how he supports business owners in creating effective referral marketing strategies to make the most from the networking they do. Listening to Dave’s passion the decision was simple and I became a client straight away and I’m so glad I did. I have always built strong relationships with clients and suppliers so Dave and Asentiv are a perfect fit. Through working with Asentiv I have been able to nurture a network of trusted connections that not only provide business referrals that help us grow our businesses but it has provided some really good friends too. The key thing Dave has supported me with has been providing me with a strategy which has enabled me to tailor my networking activities to maximise the return on the activity I do. This has had the added affect of supporting my BNI activity too as it helped make it more strategic.
This has led to new contracts worth £35k this year alone and the skills and knowledge to further gain more business by building strong effective relationships. I definitely see the support of Dave and the Asentiv material as a key long term relationship not just for my business and my personal life too. I can honestly say it’s the best investment I have made in myself and my business. If you want to learn more just drop me a line.
