SmartGuy Local Networking Groups, and Your Chamber of Commerce - a Perfect Fit
The economy is slowing, consumers are reducing their spending, taxes are sure to rise and you can't afford to advertise. What are you going to do to survive? You already know the future of your business requires generating new clients and customers. The answer is simpler than you think; just ask a "Smart Guy". Business professionals nationwide are signing up for Smart Guy's FREE business directory and business referral network. This allows them greater online visibility, and the ability to meet and align with up to 1,200 other non-competing business professionals within their zip code. Each Smart Guy professional agrees to provide top-quality service to their clients and customers. Since they are constantly rated by local neighbors, this is virtually guaranteed.
As each zip code grows, and business relationships develop, professionals need 2 things; they need to learn effective networking strategies and a setting in which to personally meet and get to know their new alliance partners. Networking companies, such as BNI, provide excellent education and regular interaction between local members. Local Chambers of Commerce provide gatherings and events, in which members can not only interact, but keep up with state, federal and local issues.

Smart Guy and the chamber of commerce is the perfect marriage; it practically recession-proofs their business!"
