What Is LeTip?
LeTip is an organization of men and women that exists to provide business professionals a weekly networking forum. Chapters meet weekly to allow members to obtain a deep understanding of the businesses of fellow members, and to exchange with them qualified business tips or leads. Each chapter allows for a single member to represent a business category, and conflicts of interest are disallowed
What Makes LeTip Different Than Any Other Leads Group?
To put it simply, LeTip is the original. We aren’t a watered down copy. We set the standard back in 1978 because we created a program to embrace both businesswomen and businessmen. We stick to the format, require our members to be committed, expect excellence and reject mediocrity. We’re snappy, successful and honored by the incredibly talented and professional membership who are the true spirit of LeTip.
What Can I Expect LeTip To Do For Me?
You can expect LeTip to provide the structure and the guidance of the LeTip program. You can expect your Regional Director or Ambassadors to train your chapter members in leadership and presentation skills. You can expect all the necessary materials to run a chapter to be provided without charge. You can expect annual training in the newest networking and chapter building techniques for your Board Members and Committee Chairs. You can expect your category to be protected. And you can expect our full time staff in our corporate office to assist you when necessary.
What Does LeTip Expect Of Me?
LeTip expects you to attend meetings because you can’t build relationships if you aren’t in attendance. LeTip expects you to pass, on average, one qualified referral every week. LeTip expects you to be ethical, professional and experienced in your line of work. LeTip expects you to help all your members to be successful and they are expected to do the same for you.
How Soon Will I See Financial Reward?
LeTip is not a get rich fast scheme. It takes time to earn the trust of your chapter members, to become adept in the networking arena, to learn to promote yourself and your business with ease. If you expect instant reward, LeTip is not for you. If you want to build long-standing business relationships that will earn you qualified referrals for years to come, then LeTip is for you.
How Do I Know LeTip Will Work For Me?
LeTip will work for you… if you work LeTip. Just follow the program. It has worked for thousands upon thousands of business people. But to be successful in LeTip – or in any endeavor – requires perseverance and the universal understanding that you must give before you receive. There is much to be said about “All for one and one for all!”
Why Shouldn’t I Just Join My Chamber Of Commerce?
Actually LeTip believes that you should be a member of both your Chamber and LeTip. Your Chamber of Commerce is good for your business and your community. The difference though between a Chamber and your LeTip Chapter is exclusivity. You “own” your category when you join LeTip and your competition is excluded from your chapter. Chambers, by their very nature, cannot exist without being inclusive.
LeTip of Middlesex County and its members are proud members of both the Edison Chamber of Commerce and the Metuchen Area Chamber of Commerce.
What Really Makes LeTip Work?
You do. The membership. LeTip teaches you how to network smarter. LeTip gives you the structure from which to grow. But it is the chapter as a whole that fuels the success of each member. Rather than just you out there selling on your own, with LeTip you have a sales force of professional business people bringing you qualified leads. Remember, referrals are made based on trust and solid relationships. That’s why it is important to attend meetings and build those relationships so your chapter will get to know you, just as you’ll get to know them.
How Many Meetings Must I Attend Before I Can Join?
Each guest is required to attend two consecutive meetings before an application can be accepted. An inspection of an applicant’s place of business is a requirement of acceptance.
