Eliminating an uncomfortable selling culture to a helping culture – the future of business networking – How can we help you?
See below for information on this new group
U2BN Uttoxeter is one of our Foundation groups, all solid, long lasting things are built on great foundations and this group is no different. We are calling on local businesses that understand the great benefits of business networking to be a part of building the foundations of success for all who join this group.
We invite high calibre businesses to come and experience our aim to help local businesses add more success and growth to what you already have. Our memberships are unique, created by U2B Networking and leading the way for the future of business networking, this unique style of membership will not be seen at any other networking organisation (yet). You can be one of the first to be a part of something new in networking. You can tailor your membership to best fit with your networking goals (every business should have a goal that they want to achieve from their networking). We don’t conform to regular networking, where one given membership fits all.
What does the meeting offer in value?
Quality, qualified, written Business Opportunities (others call these referrals)
The difference is at many places referrals are loosely given out 10 a penny and you still have to put the graft in and sell your sales pitch to secure the business. This 8 out of 10 times leads to nothing and be frustrating, as most of you will have experienced. Our business opportunities are guaranteed, meaning your fellow members who know all about your business (U2B Networking members take the time to get to know you and your business thoroughly) have done the graft for you, they have done the sales pitch on your behalf, they have told the customer how awesome you are, what you charge, how good your work is and that they highly recommend you. So when they hand you the written business opportunity, all you have to do is contact the customer and arrange the date to provide your services or product. This is the future of word of mouth recommendations in business networking.
Speaker – A talk on a relevant business topic to give value to the group
How Can We Help You? – Our biggest USP that brings so much value to members.
My Business, My Story – Tell us how awesome your business is, your journey and how we can introduce you to the people you want a connection with and bring you consistant business opportunities.

Producing Great Results
More than ever I am so pleased I joined U2B Networking Shifnal. Within days of Living in Lockdown, Andy had got us all together on video conferencing and we were off! Innovative ideas were shared for how we could support each other, business passed, and guests joined us too. I’m really enjoying this new way of working and the chance to present my business in this way. It’s really bringing out some creative thinking and producing great results.

Receiving Great Support
I would like to recommend U2B Networking Shifnal for anyone who would like to network within a supportive and friendly group structure. Being part of a small family firm it can often be hard to problem solve and get the right support in your business when you need it. One of the benefits of this group is the “How Can We Help You” slot when you can present a business issue and discuss solutions amongst the group. I believe this is one of the unique selling points which makes U2B
Networking so valuable. So as well as free advice I have also received written business that has paid over twice my yearly partnership fee and with the potential for much more. I look forward to continuing to grow and support the network.

Springboard For My Business
Yoo2Be Networking has been a great springboard for my business. With the ‘My Story, My Business’ slot, we each have the opportunity to tell our Yoo2Be Networking partners about ourselves, our career choices and our passion for our business. We All have a story to tell about why we do what we do, and why it is important to us. Understanding each of our ‘stories’ cements us as a group and helps us understand how best to help each other. I have enjoyed getting to know each and every partner and look forward to getting to know new partners as they join!
Thank you Yoo2Be Networking, and my greatly valued Shifnal Yoo2Be Networking Partners ?. I look forward to our next meeting…
Advice and Support
“I joined Yoo2Be Networking not too long ago after a very warm welcome during my first guest meeting. I had only just started my own business and was eager to get the advice and support from more experienced business owners. Yoo2Be Networking gave me all of that and supplied me with my very first customers. It’s made a huge difference as it helped me gain more confidence and made me feel like I could make this endevour into a success. I can highly recommend for anyone who’s starting out and can use an extra boost in business.”

An Investment In Your Business
Most business owners don’t network. They’re either too busy, don’t understand networking, don’t see the value of it, or perceive that they will be constantly ‘sold to’.
The fact is that for any SME owner, in whatever sphere, networking is one of the best routes to market you have, and one in which you are in total control. Networking also helps overcome the feeling of isolation that many SME owners feel.
Yoo2be Networking is an active and thriving networking group, relevant for any SME owner. It is friendly and relaxed, with a focus on Personal Development, information sharing, mutual support, and building personal relationships. Everyone has a voice in Yoo2Be Networking. It exists for its partners’ benefit.
Networking is an investment in your business, and for me, joining Yoo2be Networking is one of the best investments I have made.

A Genuine Desire To Help Me
Having looked at and been part of other impersonal, ineffective networking groups where I always felt I was only a number, I was invited along to the Yoo2Be Networking group in Shifnal.
I was so impressed by the friendly atmosphere and the genuine desire and willingness of the group partners to get to know me and my business that I joined after only my second visit.
If you are looking for a networking group that is not only friendly but also cares about you and your business, I have no hesitation in recommending this group.
