What is sponsored networking?
Each month, usually the third Wednesday or Thursday between 6 and 8pm, HHBA members meet for a relaxed evening of networking. The venues vary but the welcome is always warm and guests are welcome. Since September 2017, members have been sponsoring the event and this has proved incredibly popular. The cost of sponsorship is £120 and for that the sponsor gets to host the evening and the opportunity to promote their business through a 20 minute presentation.
What does the package include?
HHBA will source a suitable venue.
HHBA will arrange refreshments, typically a welcome drink.
HHBA will feature the event on the HHBA website and promote it directly via e-mail to their members and via the Newsletter, our mailing list consists of just under 500 local business people.
HHBA will promote the networking event and in doing so, your business, through social media channels Facebook and Twitter.
If a sponsor cancels within a week of the event, the fee is non-refundable.
What can you do to maximise your investment?
Promote the event on your own social media channels both through your own posts and by sharing the HHBA posts.
Share the event via e-mail with contacts not on social media.
Create a promotional video. They really do work!
Bring some marketing material!
Run a business card draw for a prize and ensure that you get as many business cards as possible.
Perhaps make an offer to members on the night to encourage them to use or recommend your services.
