NRG, Nordonia Referral Group, is an association of business professionals from the Nordonia Hills area whose members meet to encourage the building of relationships and support each other's businesses by sharing referrals.
As business professionals, we all need a way to differentiate ourselves from our competition. How many people are doing what you do in Nordonia Hills? As a Nordonia Referral Group (NRG) member you can have an edge over your competitors.
Referral marketing is the oldest and most trusted marketing strategy, and NRG is a structured, goal-oriented group of business owners who want to give referrals, receive referrals, and build lasting, mutually beneficial relationships. Even in the current age of social media networking, word-of-mouth remains the best way for a business to advertise.
Designed to make networking efficient, our meetings have a set agenda so that we don't waste anyone's time.
NRG enables you to develop trusted relationships that results in helping your business grow by members educating each other about what they do and the kinds of referrals they want. This is not about selling to others in the group but to learn about the other members and teach them about your business in order to be able to provide qualified referrals. Think of NRG as your salesforce.
Whenever an NRG member speaks to a client, associate, or friend who mentions a need represented by a member of the group they are able to provide a referral to fill that need. Additionally, each member knows dozens of people, who in turn know dozens of people; an extended network with the potential for many ongoing business referrals.
Of course, the effectiveness of your salesforce will depend on your participation in this mutual support system.
While there are no fees to being part of NRG, all members must be active in the Nordonia Hills business community and maintain membership in the Nordonia Hills Chamber of Commerce.
NRG meets on the first and third Thursdays of each month from 8 - 9 am at 7 to 7 Mediterranean Cuisine, 500 W. Aurora Rd., Sagamore Hills. Coffee is available for purchase prior to the meeting, and you may arrive as early as 7am or stay after the meeting for breakfast and to meet with fellow NRG members.
If you would like to attend one meeting as a guest, please contact the NRG administrator. A 3 month trial membership is also available for non-chamber members for $10/month, with those fees applied towards chamber membership if you would like to join and stay in the group.
