Creating Media are huge fans of business networking across South Wales and the South West. We are constantly asked where we get clients from and of course we get lots of leads through our website but the majority of our clients come through business networking and referrals.
Gone are the days when business networking meant standing in a room full of people pretending they were very important, not talking to each other and checking their phone every ten seconds.
The SME market has recognised that the best way to find more business is to share contacts and buy from the people that you meet, like, know and trust!
Michelle Dalley from Creating Media is an active member of 4 Networking, a national business networking platform with over three hundred groups across the UK. Michelle joined 4 Networking over two years ago and in that time has launched the follwing groups in South East Wales – Newport, Chepstow, Cwmbran and revitalised Monmouth. The groups are run by friendly, local, well connected business people who are on hand to put new visitors and members at ease and help them make connections. With up to 40 people attending each meeting they are the most popular networking groups in the area.
The 4 Networking platform also has an active forum with over 40,000 members. Michelle has utilised both the forum and 4N meetings to develop strong friendships, relationships and clients. With introductions from people she has met, Creating Media now have clients across the UK from Peterborough, East Anglia, Nottingham, Derby, Birmingham, Bristol, Bridgwater, Chepstow, Cardiff, Newport, Cwmbran, Monmouth, Hereford and so many more areas.
