How Team Network is Different

 

Teams

Each “Team” is made up of various “exclusive” business categories from A to Z, i.e.; Accountant; Bank; Carpet; Dentist; Electrician; Florist; Graphic Designer; Home Improvement; Insurance; etc.

Historically, Teams have been established with a geographic element named and meeting in cities and towns more convenient for members to attend meetings, although Zoom Conferencing, new technologies, and other social changes are making this less critical.

All potential new members are required to visit their prospective Team meetings. They are pre-screened for quality, dependability and personal service and are then vetted to see if they “fit-in.” They are looking for those who exhibit a genuine enthusiasm for helping their Team be successful. If so determined, they are invited to join by the Team Captain.

Finally, incoming members are required to sign-off on the Team Network Articles of Understanding prior to initiating their membership. Their profile is added to their Team Page and are provided some guidance how to network successfully and take full advantage of what the value proposition Team Network has to offer.

B2B oriented and other vertical market Teams

Team Network is providing a special opportunity to those people who are generating 50% or more of their gross sales with businesses as opposed to everyday consumers. If you feel you fit into that criteria and your category is open, you will be able to become part of a Team Network group primarily made up of people in business categories such as Commercial Real Estate, Advertising Companies, Business Coaches, IT Service Companies, Business Bankers, CPA’s, Business Law Attorneys, Commercial Insurance Agents, Office Equipment Sales People, etc.

Marketing to Seniors? 

We currently have a networking group meeting 2x/month on Zoom made op of business people who want to grow the amount of business they are doing in the 55 and up customer segment. 

We are also planning to start Teams that be made up of members who serve the real estate market, the health and wellness industry, and non-profits and associations. 

Team Network Zoom Conferencing and Face-to-Face Gatherings

When Covid-19 hit the 2nd week of March 2020, Team Network quickly pivoted, moving all our meeting online. Several of our groups currently still meet that way.

Members discovered that they love the convenience of meeting online. Some groups are finding them so efficient and so effective that they don’t want to ever go back to the way it was, taking valuable time from their days to fight traffic, burn gas, purchase food and beverages to build business networking relationships. They love being able to visit other Teams in our organization with such ease, groups they would never visit because they are miles away from where they work and live. AND THEY ARE GENERATING NEW BUSINESS!

However, groups are starting to meet for in-person gatherings. Some are splitting the difference between online and in-person meetings. Some meet in-person regularly. Some throw in a happy hour gathering every other month. Each team has a different culture and make their own decisions regarding the frequency and the nature of their meetings.  

Martys (Meeting/Parties)

The unique “Marty” concept strategically blends social interaction combined with a business meeting. for 20+ years the term Marty and its meaning have become synonymous with the Team Network itself. Members are even referred to as “Marty-ers,” and while they are participating at one they are “Marty-ing!”

When a Marty event is announced, Team Network members come together typically at their fellow members’ places of business. The first 30 minutes provides members and their guests with a relaxed, party atmosphere where all can have fun and enjoy themselves. This format helps break down barriers. Members truly get to know one another and forge strong personal relationships characterized by warmth and respect.

After 30 minutes, the meeting is called to order. Members then share valuable information with the whole group, give testimonials, pass qualified leads, and explore creative ways to help one another to become more successful. The host is given extended time to spotlight their business and teach members about what is going on in their given industry.  This is also when potential member guests are given an opportunity to introduce themselves. When a group of high-energy, successful, non-competing entrepreneurs commit to work together for everyone’s benefit, the results are amazing!

Happy Hour Huddles

Happy Hour Huddles are typically held in a local restaurant and are more social in nature. A shorter, less formal, meeting takes place for attendees to make a quick introduction and to make a few announcements.

One-On-Ones

Meeting with a fellow Teammate one-on-one to talk business and get to know one another gives fellow members the best chance to form a tight-knit networking bond. These One-on-One meetings are strongly encouraged for members to take full advantage of their Team membership. It’s also not unusual for these meetings to consist of more than one Team Member our may include a guest for introduction. It’s particularly effective if these Power Team participants share overlapping target markets.

Mega-Martys

The Team Network Mega-Marty is defined as a special event where two or more Teams gather together for a networking function. It’s common for members to meet fellow Team Members from other groups (Team Cousins) where new valuable relations are formed. This activity expands each others reach and resources. Members who participate in these opportunities have generated thousands of dollars of addition business through Team Network without adding one dime in additional membership dues.

Other Team Member Gatherings

Beyond these very regular Zoom Conference meetings and other events mentioned above, the Team Network has organized a number of peripheral activities through the years such as professional sporting events, golf outings, holiday parties, business expos, even taking ocean cruises.

Multi-Organizational Meetings are common place. These cooperative joint networking events with chambers, and other professional groups help our members expand their network contacts in a big way. We have organized professional seminars and workshops on various topics for the benefit of Team Network members. 

 

Team Network is all about providing a variety of networking options and opportunities. This truly explodes our value proposition! We help our members build closer relationships with more people than any other organization that we know of, all designed to help you grow your businesses at an accelerated rate.
