We originally had the “October offer” of £5 to attend if you hadn’t been to any meeting before with a simulate offer if you brought a “newbie” along. This has proved so popular that we have decided to keep this as a permanent offer to encourage our regular “connectors” to bring new people along but also to be an incentive to anyone new to networking or already a member of another networking group to give us a go. We are not setting out to poach from other groups but to add a different dimension to anyone already committed to networking elsewhere. This is borne out by the increase in attendance from both 4Networkers and BNIers. We even allow them to advertise their groups at the end of the meeting.
