GONE 3 is a referral group within the GOA Regional Business Association. We are a like minded group of business pros helping each other’s business grow.
GONE 3 was put together to allow business professionals meet on a weekly basis to refer business to each other and help expand our businesses. We are exclusive in that we only have one professional from any one category of business so there is no competition within the group.
We are not a leads group rather a REFERRAL group. The difference is in the type of business we refer to each other. We make sure the referral we pass is someone that has agreed to speak with the referred specialist. This insures a higher level of conversion to sales resulting in a more successful business for our members.
Members arrive at 7:30 and spend the time before the meeting starts at 8:00 networking, discussing referrals and getting to know each other better.
Once everyone is seated we begin the meeting with our 30 Second Commercials — a brief introduction of what a member does.
After introductions our weekly reports are presented. This includes the number of referrals and transactions reported the previous week, committee chair reports, thank yous, year-to-date activity and attendance.
Member Craft Talk
Each meeting one member has 20 minutes to present his/her craft talk to the membership. The craft talk is to educate the group about his/her business, making it easier for the members to refer business.
