GGBA’s Business Exchange Network (BEN) is a leads-exchange group program for members to develop professional relationships, expand their network of contacts and develop their marketing and sales presentations.
BEN groups meet on a regular basis and learn about each other’s businesses, allowing members to concentrate on developing long-term relationships. This model provides a supportive forum where members learn how to professionally articulate the products and services they offer and, with the help of their BEN group, become better salesmen. Ultimately, BEN members become each other’s sales force by cross-promoting one another to their individual client base.
The BEN Model
BEN groups feature no more than one representative per industry. Every BEN member presents a 30-second introduction at each meeting, enabling them to hone their “elevator pitch” to perfection. BEN members are also invited to make a periodic 10-minute presentation to the group. Participation is open to both GGBA members and non-members.
BEN membership dues are $60 per quarter for GGBA members and $100 per quarter for non-members
