Business. Networking. Training.

What’s the best form of Marketing? You know this, you’ve heard it time and time again. It’s word of mouth. A good referral from a trusted source is almost “money in the bank”. Since that’s true isn’t it vitally important to get more referrals? Of course it is!

Many of your best sales pros are probably already doing “some networking” both online and face to face. Are they doing it right? Only your CFO knows for sure.

What about other people in your office. Wouldn’t it be great if they were bringing in business too? They have a network. Why aren’t they? If your company is looking to add revenue, I have some training classes that can help:

The 5 U’s of Networking: This class gives a comprehensive overview on what is needed to Network effectively both online and in the real world. We discuss why Networking works, what you need to know before you begin, how to work an event, what to do after and touches on some crucial online tactics.

Social Media for Business Growth: Companies who have one person responsible for social media are truly missing the golden opportunity. This class goes into the What, Why and a little of the HOW to use sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and of course, LinkedIn to grow business.

60+ Things You Need to Know About LinkedIn: Contrary to popular belief, LinkedIn isn’t some infomercial; you can’t just set it and forget. The class moves quickly and even your resident LinkedIn guru will learn dozens of new things on how to use this uber power tool for business.

How Likes, RTs and Shares Grow Business Now: This class takes a detailed look at how to engage others on all the cool social media platforms. We will dive into the  hows of using Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to your businesses advantage.

Content Mastery: While this isn’t necessary for the whole staff, this is a class you’ll want people to take. Ever wonder why some people post and get a bunch of likes and you get crickets? They know how to turn an interesting phrase. And after this class, you will too.

These training classes run for an average of 90 minutes. All classes are tailored to meet your company’s specific objectives and the cost includes a pre-class consultation and post course support for attendees.

Here’s a few recommendations:

“Go out of your way to hear Terry Bean–and then move mountains to get him to your organization/community/business. I don’t often smile with delight at the back of a workshop room but I do when Terry Bean is presenting. I hear a lot of speakers on a variety of topics and Terry is one of the best. Knowledgable, entertaining, personable–Terry is a speaker that creates a relationship with the audience and then takes them to magical place where ideas and information come fast and furious. Great content is delivered on the wings of inspiration. If you appreciate talent, intelligence, creativity and humor–then you’ll appreciate working with Terry Bean.” Penny Shanks Executive Director- Clarkston Chamber of Commerce

“Terry spoke to Michigan Technological University alumni at career networking events recently in Ann Arbor and Sterling Heights, MI. In addition to a motivating (and humorous) presentation on the value of networking, Terry spent considerable time connecting with guests both before and after his talk. He also took the time to research Michigan Tech and incorporated many references to the school in his talk. We will definitely engage Terry again and would not hesitate to recommend him as a speaker to other organizations.” -Brenda Rudinger, Director of Alumni Relations, Michigan Tech University

Here is a link to many endorsements and 70+ recommendations I have on LinkedIn.

Looking for other training? I have extensive knowledge in customer care, communications, sales, marketing and Universal Laws. Additionally, I am one of the most connected people around and am always happy to refer the right connection.

Relationship Marketing- Owning spot 1 in their mental rolodex-presentation

In October 2011 I was invited to deliver the keynote at LA2M.Org. Since LA2M stands for Lunch Ann Arbor Marketing, I knew I needed something in the marketing genre. Over the past year I have been playing around with “Relationship Marketing” as an all encompassing term for social media, online networking, business networking and everything else having in this area.

I put this 84 slide presentation together and managed to deliver it in under 30 minutes. While the audience received a ton of benefit from it I believe this should be at least a 75 minute talk. I look forward to delivering it again.

There is a link to this presentation on the LA2M site. Unfortunately the slides are A LOT pink. Even more unfortunate is after the talk ended a couple of smart guys worked with me on the laptop and figured out how to change it and make it regular color. Better late than never.

Here is the presentation information (you can also click on the link above to see this text and the video):

We all know how important it is to show up on page 1 on Google. But did you know that most everyone “searches” the same spot before they even log on to their computer when seeking a solution? They go to their brain. You want to make sure that your brand is the first thing they think of when they hear an opportunity for your industry. This fun and fast paced presentation will:

* Define relationship marketing

* Teach you effective personal branding you can use both online and off

* Show you how to create concise and specific branding messages

* Help you leave a positive imprint on everyone you meet

* Discuss techniques on how to be the best conversationalists people will meet

Join Terry Bean, Founder of Motor City Connect, Author of “The Universal Guide to Business Networking”, and all around good guy as he shares his passion for success with the audience. You will laugh, learn and be ready to woo just about anyone at the completion of this talk.

Terry Bean’s passion is helping others succeed. He is known as many things: a professional speaker, a social media pro, a relationship marketing expert, but most importantly he brings people together. Terry is the founder and driving force behind the fastest growing networking group in Detroit, www.MotorCityConnect.com. He is also the founder of Tribal Graph, a social infrastructure company whose product is used to connect entrepreneurs and investors and Networked Inc., a company that provides training on the concepts and benefits of online and real world networking to numerous sales teams, groups and professionals.

Social Entrepreneurship and Business Karma presentation

I’ve been blessed to deliver this talk originally as the lunch Keynote at TiEcon Midwest 2010. I’ve given similar talks to the Rotary in Bloomfield Hills, Better Business Bureau and Bullseye, Right on Target Business Conference.

This talk has a significant message about the power of giving and how important it is to do now. This talk touches people deeper and for a longer time than most any other talk I’ve delivered. Take a read and see if this may be right for your audience.

“It’s the right thing to do”

In the olden days business got done by what you knew. If you didn’t have a skill, a big idea or a strong back, you didn’t get paid. Recently people decided it wasn’t what you know, but who you know that’s important. The right connections could lead you most anywhere.

Nowadays what really matters is “how you’re known”. Are you a good person? Do you help others? Do you do what you said you would do? Without a strong personal brand that is committed to doing the right thing, you will not succeed in the age of business karma.

Join Terry Bean, author, serial entrepreneur and founder of Motor City Connect, as he merges business and spirituality right in front of your eyes.

You will walk out of this impactful seminar with big ideas on:

Letting go of the “so what” of your life

Authentic communication
The power of doing it now
Ways to lead whilst serving
How giving helps you receive
Attracting, engaging and enrolling others
The planetary shift in consciousness

This presentation will answer a lot of questions and will likely raise some new ones for you.

Michigan’s very own Attraction Hero Terry Bean discusses why Social Entrepreneurship and Business Karma are such important considerations in the NOW economy. Audiences appear mesmerized as spirituality and smart business principals are merged seamlessly in front of their eyes. Do not miss!
