The Red Rock Referral Network (RRRN) is a great Verde Valley and Sedona, Arizona business networking organization. The RRRN is built to be a referral engine which sends local customers to you.
The group meets on Thursdays. the second and fourth week of every month at the Heartline Cafe at 7AM.
The format of the group is very focused. Members have name badges and guests receive a sticker with their name on it. A breakfast buffet is provided. Meeting attendees get their coffee and breakfast and the RRRN starts shortly after with the President of the RRRN beginning with the group introduction.
Each member gets a 60-second Sales Sizzle in which the member stands, states their name, their business, and what services or products that they sell. Then guests are invited to follow suit.
The President then explains the organization’s mission in gathering referrals for one another. A 3-ring binder book is passed around the room so members can remain stocked-up on other members (and guests) business cards.
Two RRRN members are pre-selected to give a 10-minute presentation on a topic of their choice each. Some members provide hand-outs, bring a slide-projector, or other multi-media to demonstrate what they do.
At the conclusion of the second presentation, the President passes around the referral bag. Members and sometimes guests, fill out referral slips and fill the bag. A guest does a random draw from the referral bag to select a winner of $20.00.
Completed referral slips are then passed out to the owners to reach out to their new leads.
Members fill out green slips of paper to generically track how much income the group generates for each seat. Unlike Chamber Events or other Business Networking Groups, the RRRN is very structured and focused on driving new referrals for one another.
Red Rock Referral Network Testimonials
During the 3 years that I have been a member of RRRN, I was fortunate to receive many legal referrals regarding my area of practice, Personal Injury and Medical Negligence cases. In addition, I have been referred many clients, from RRRN members, where I was able to give advice, at no charge, as I want to help folks, who have legal needs, regardless of being paid. Sedona and the area is a wonderful place to practice, in comparison to Washington, DC, where I was a lawyer for over 30 years.
The RRRN has been amazing for my business. I received lots of clients through RRRN referrals and made some great business contacts as well. The members are always helping one another. What a great group of people!
I have been a member of the Red Rock Referral Network for a little over two years. As a result of my membership and the referrals I have received, I billed over $15,000 to new clients for bookkeeping services and QuickBooks training. The members of RRRN are a great resource when I have questions, and they have provided excellent service to all of the people I have referred to them.
The Red Rock Referral Network provides members the opportunity to form strategic partnerships with other members who are in a complementary field. For example, a realtor member may start sending referrals to a mortgage broker member and landscaper member. You can quickly see how members help one another grow their business, locally.
The power of the RRRN is its members’ willingness to promote each other’s businesses in Sedona and the greater Verde Valley. Each member has a book of other members business cards to feature in their waiting rooms, to hand out on job sites, and at other events. In our small towns, your business will start getting a buzz on a regular basis.
At each meeting every RRRN member gets the opportunity to do a 60-second sales sizzle. You stand up, give your name, and tell everyone about your business. 2-members are preselected and given a 10-minute period to discuss whatever topic they want. You can make a sales presentation or offer advice from your field to further establish yourself as a knowledgable expert.
