Membership Benefits

Industry Specific

Joining a Chamber of Commerce is great…until you meet your competition at the next Chamber function. They’ve been a member longer and have established themselves as a fixture within the group.

Our members cover a variety of industries and the principle of ‘Six Degrees of Separation’ dictates that you are, at any given time, less than six connections away from whatever you need. The same is true for TB3, in that, whatever your business needs, you can find it within our group – Just ask for it.

Being the resident expert of your industry, you develop loyalty and trust by building relationships. You are remembered. As you build relationships, your opportunities for qualified business referrals, and not LEADS, increase. And as the number of referrals increase, the return on your networking investment grows. Make the best from your networking investment at TB3.

One of the keys to successful networking is to focus on key referral SOURCES and not just consumers of your products or services. Ideally, you have time to meet with 3 to 4 key referral partners APPROPRIATELY in a given week. Imagine the power of meeting with all of them in one setting.

Private Club Setting

Nothing says you’re serious about your business more than meeting a prospect over lunch at a prestigious private club like the Carrollwood Country Club (formerly Emerald Greens Resort). The value you have for yourself and your clients shows true professionalism.

Carrollwood Country Club is Tampa’s Premier Private Country Club. Centrally located in the heart of Carrollwood Village.
A beautiful oasis that redefines the private country club experience.

Team Focus

Networking is, for the most part, a learned skill. While some people are natural networkers, the majority of us must train ourselves to be effective. As an entrepreneur, to get the most from your networking investment you must do two things:

1. Develop a powerful and diverse network of contacts *

2. Create a positive message and deliver it effectively *

The goal of Tampa Bay Business Builders is to provide members with QUALIFIED REFERRALS INSTEAD OF COLD CALL LEADS

Unlike other ‘Industry-Specific’ referral groups, there is no pressure to turn in a minimum number of leads each week. The focus is on QUALITY REFERRALS, not quantity in numbers. This increases the value of your membership by reducing those time-consuming cold leads that other groups generate because people are trying to fill their MINIMUM WEEKLY QUOTAS.

As a not-for-profit group, the focus is on YOUR business, not the business of the CLUB.

75% attendance requirement – Remember, that in networking, you must be present to win.

Lunch Hour Meeting

Relaxed setting.

No pressure for time – you’re at a lunch meeting

Upscale dining – not burgers and fries

Convenient for One-on-One meetings with referral partners and prospects – before or after lunch.

Breaking bread is a time honored tradition for conducting business.
