Why: To strengthen and grow your business network.

In an ever increasing effort to raise community awareness, The Lock Up Self Storage in Lincoln Park is hosting a Spring Meet and Greet for neighborhood businesses. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet members of the Chambers of Commerce from Lincoln Park, Wicker Park/Bucktown, Logan Square and River North, as well as network with their fellow business owners. This will also be a great way for local businesses to see a Lock Up Self Storage facility in person and learn more about what our business and office storage services can do for them. The Meet and Greet is a free event, appetizers and cocktails will be served and there will be plenty of opportunity for business owners to meet each other and network with one another.

Creating connections is a crucial part of running a business. Relationships with your customers are of the utmost importance. The Spring Meet & Greet is aimed at building stronger relationships with face to face interactions. When so much of business is conducted online, via email or text, business owners often miss out on one of the most useful tools of the trade, meeting in person. A Forbes study showed that actually interacting with a client face to face produced far more successful results because it is easier to use candor to persuade someone into making a decision when you are in their presence.

Relationships with other businesses are just as important as those with the general public. With this in mind, guests have the choice to take part in a Speed Networking option at the Spring Meet & Greet. The idea is to facilitate everyone getting to know one another. Attendees are paired up and each have one minute to promote their business before a bell is rung and you go on to meet the next business owner in your neighborhood.

Whether you choose to participate in the Speed Networking or not, be sure to come armed with plenty of business cards and a positive attitude. You never know what a chance meeting can bring to the table. So come to The Lock Up Self Storage in Lincoln Square this Friday and network with others who are also looking to build successful businesses in the Chicagoland area. Together, we can make a difference.
