IWJ SNAP Schedule (Monthly Networking Meetings)
SNAP is an acronym for Social Networking After Party. The monthly networking meetings are just that, a social networking (after hours) party for business owners. It’s here, where business cards are the evening’s calling card, speakers are center stage, and people mingle during the Marketing Table Talk. It’s the new fangled party scene for women in business.

Dec 18, 2013: Holiday Social
Come play with the IWJ!!! Networking meetings are another piece of your marketing picture!
Rather than be lured into spending your time and money with every networking function in Idaho, pick those that have your target audience there. For example, don’t spend time at a function with a bunch of electricians if your market is young business people. While there may be 50 electricians in attendance, that still won’t bring you revenue. Go attend the networking function that has 10 young business people rather than the meeting with 50 electricians. You’ll make friends, give them information useful to their tender ears and hopefully be there when it’s time for a referral.
