Social media is a double-edged sword for many business owners. On the one hand, it promises so much, but on the other hand, it can take up a lot of your valuable time – especially if you don’t have a proven social media plan. But if you’re mainly selling to other businesses, then there’s one place you definitely need to be: LinkedIn.
With more than 400 million users and the ability to connect with new leads, partners or influencers who can help you spread the word about your brand, it’s the obvious choice for B2B. But are you getting the most out of it or are you just tinkering around at the edges?
Join us for this local discussion about how we can all make best use of LinkedIn, connect with local businesses and set up our own New Forest LinkedIn Local group here in the New Forest – so you can meet your online contacts face-to-face and do business better!
The New Forest Business Partnership (NFBP) is a partnership between business and the public authorities in the New Forest. Its central role is to help New Forest businesses grow! It seeks to:
The NFBP Board includes representatives from all major business sectors and areas of the New Forest as well as Brockenhurst College, New Forest District Council, New Forest National Park Authority, Hampshire County Council and Totton College. In 2019 the NFBP Board will lead an implementation group to ensure the successful delivery of the New Forest Economic Development Strategy.
New Forest Business Partnership hosts a wide variety of activities, including training, business meetings and social events.
All events are at cost for New Forest Business Partnership members. Non-members are also welcome to attend.
Breakfast meetings normally run from 7.30 to 9.30 am at various locations across the New Forest.
We encourage all businesses large and small, B2B and B2C, to join the momentum of the New Forest Business Partnership!
As a member you enjoy member at cost rates at a wide range of training events and networking opportunities as well as the opportunity to exhibit within the Local Business Village at the New Forest Show, take part in the annual Golf Day, and enter the Brilliance in Business Awards.
In fact if you attend just five breakfast events you will usually cover the cost of your membership in the savings gained!
There is also a members only area on the website which gives you an opportunity to profile your business and access additional content including presentation slides for events whether or not you were able to attend them, and member only blog posts.
You can also showcase your business by demonstrating your knowledge and services by headlining a business breakfast and/or facilitating training workshops.
