12/03/20: Please read this page with this update about the Coronavirus in mind.
- We have stopped offline events until further notice.
See SELBN's Online Sponsorship Plans.
People are at the heart of everything we do.
Whether it's networking, seminars and events, we help other networks collaborate by filling their seats at their events and places at networking events, not just our own.
If you consider yourself to be a great speaker with something valuable to share, we can give you the platform you need.
You offer outstanding services or range of products? We can help spread the word!
With South East London's combined network, consisting of thousands of business owners, our proven reach is likely to be the most extensive with absolutely no known fake likes or followers on our social networks. (You can easily spot them on many other networks who boast about large followings!) Through our hard work and tenacity, our network is 100% organically grown and continues to flourish.
Here's a snapshot: (All numbers are minimum):
SELBN's LinkedIn group: 3,560 members.
SELBN's LinkedIn page: 190 followers.
John Coupland's LinkedIn: 6,100 connections.
@JohnCoupland_ on Twitter: 7,640 followers.
@ACCELerate_Tech on Twitter: 590 followers.
@SELBN_UK on Twitter: 1,710 followers.
John Coupland's Facebook Page likes: 410.
John Coupland's Facebook business contacts: 430.
Plus, there's email marketing. A very powerful means to reach active business people.
Our business ACCELerate™ Your Social Media, (a sub brand of ACCELerate™ Your Business - which is SELBN's Executive Sponsor), powers links to our email newsletters via social media marketing. The approach is unique and derives from SELBN Founder John Coupland's Amazon bestselling book*. (*Sales and marketing - International category).
We have hundreds of active email subscribers.
So, with the social networks we're on, that's a total network reach of well over 20,000 - Most of whom are just a few miles from your business in South East London.
NEW: Spring 2020: SELBN's Online Sponsorship Plans
Our sponsorship packages are one of the best and unique in the region. (We can even tap into other networks to provide a national and international reach, if required.)
In our view, nothing beats an organically grown network. Paying an agency hundreds of pounds, (even more in some cases), for SEO or adwords may be the 'in' thing however how many people have told you they actually get the results they expected?
Having run our own events since 2010, SELBN™ is a well known, local and trusted brand.
It's a network in its own right. Doesn't it make more sense to market to a network which is warm and known by so many?
So if you're fed up with marketing agencies and PR gurus who tell you a great story however have little or no network to help you, get in touch with us today.
Complete the Contact page to enquire about our packages. We are so transparent, we would be happy to prove and substantiate the numbers above in any qualification meeting. (Genuine enquiries only).
How many other networks would do the same when it comes to targeted marketing and PR?...and don't forget - We host and help organise events for other networks too!
Check out 'Partnerships' to see some of the well known organisations we have helped. You may well be surprised!
