State of the Union . . .B2B . . . Where are we???

Hosted by Frank Helring
B2B, we know it as "Business To Business". It has been a tried and true methodology for Small Businesses large and small to get into productive relationships that are mutually beneficial and mutually profitable. This was so popular that several organizations took upon the task of forming membership organizations to further the aims and goals of their constituents. The focus was the creation of a flow of referral leads on an ongoing and consistent basis. Usually a weekly meeting was complimented by a breakfast/lunch to relegate the time commitment in the midst of a typical business day. This worked very well up until COVID19 struck and drove small businesses and their customers behind closed doors. Today, I will be interviewing Kim Marie, the owner of Le Tip International. Le Tip is a premiere B2B membership organization with a rich history of successes. Kim has made some pivot moves to keep her business fresh and flowing. Today we will find out what she is up to at Le Tip.

BizZne$$ BuzZ is all about your business. Small business is in trouble and they have been as far back as the “rocking” that occurred in 2008. The 14.2 percent loss of many brick and mortar small businesses happened by the year 2015 (source, NFIB 2015 Report). Already being squeezed by Internet predators, like Amazon, E-Bay, etc. They are literally sucking the life out of small businesses by customer and profit “siphoning.” B2B Networking Groups and social media disappointments abound.
Small business needs a “counter” to these E-commerce tsunamis and that mechanism is the power of UNITY, RELATIONSHIP and the Law of RECIPROCITY. This is an EDGE that is a non-compete. The “perfect storm” of shut down/customer distancing, lack of capital and uncertainty are the devastating effects of COVID19 disruption.
Our mission is to provide your business the boost that it needs to recapture your personal visions, rejuvenate your operations and to bring about a platform that represents your interests.
