What’s the difference between a business lead and a referral? What happens at a Leads Luncheon? What’s an elevator speech?
Michelle Wiley–Membership Director of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce–appeared as my guest in “The Communication Corner” to comment on these questions. This interview program airs Tuesdays at 9:00 a.m. ET on WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau,” with a Thursday morning replay at 6:00 a.m.
NOTE: In visiting WBCX, Michelle was returning to familiar territory. As a broadcast major at Brenau University, she had co-hosted a lively show, “Morning Buzz.”
In addition to answering the questions mentioned above, Michelle discussed:
*Whether cold calling still brings results
*Using the Social Media to promote your business
*Reasonable expectations for a Leads Luncheon participant
*Building relationships before you ask for business
*Best books about networking
*Describing your business in 60 seconds or less
*How one business professional used a prospect’s Facebook information creatively
Listen to Michelle’s interview to improve your networking skills, and to increase opportunities for having others promote your business actively.
