As a sole practitioner, I am always on the lookout for new ways to promote my services. My experience has been that commingling with other attorneys pays off. When I received our post card invitation about the networking group, I put it on my desk and wondered what the idea was all about. I weighed the pros and cons, and finally decided to call and schedule a lunch. For better or worse, at least I would have met some new faces. At that lunch, we met for the first time.
I can only say that after joining the Panter, Panter & Sampedro, P.A. network, I projected my face and services to now hundreds of people. Most importantly I have made great friendships and have exchanged referrals with several attorneys on the network.
The best of my experience and the reason for this email, however, was that through the network, more specifically, YOU, I was connected to a person, not a practicing attorney, who helped me project my legal services internationally. I traveled out of the country with a group of Americans, through this strategic contact and was able to meet international clients. As a result of this trip, I met several investors (great potential clients) and closed a contract with one of them.
I am very glad I responded to your post card. Never take small beginnings for granted. The Panter, Panter & Sampedro, P.A. network WORKS! My two cents advice to the group is: “Keep showing up at the social events and stay connected!”
Keep up the good work, Mitch, Brett and David!
Thank you so much for inviting me to attend last night’s Panter Panter & Sampedro Referral Network, dinner. It was great to see you guys and have the opportunity to share a wonderful meal with nice people and network at the same time!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…one of the best decisions I’ve made when I decided to go solo was to respond to the post card you guys sent me, and join the Panter, Panter & Sampedro, P.A. Referral Network. I’m very proud to be part of this group.
Thank you again guys!
Enjoy your day!
