St Andrews Business Club named ‘Best Business Networking Club in Fife’ by CMA
St Andrews Business Club has been named the Best Business Networking Club in Fife by the Content Marketing Academy (CMA).
Earlier this year Nicola Crawford at the CMA evaluated networking clubs in Fife based on criteria including membership cost, type of events, topics discussed, location of events and member attendance. After comparing our club with Fife Chamber, BNI and Fife Networking Group, it rated St Andrews Business Club as the best!
In her blog post setting out her process and the results, Nicola writes: “For consistency, flexibility, price, and opportunities to learn and network, I think St Andrews Business Club is your guy.
“They’ve done a decent job of laying it all out for you and you don’t need to be tied into their membership to attend. Whether you’re an early bird or a night owl, there are options there for you. And suitable when you’re already squeezed for time working hard on your business.” Thanks Nicola!
Speaking about this latest honour for the Club (we were a finalist for Best Marketing Campaign in the 2019 Fife Business Awards), President Caroline Rochford said: “I’m delighted the Club has been chosen as the best place for business networking in Fife. We’ve worked extremely hard over the last three years to create a place that provides SME owners and managers with the knowledge and networking they need to succeed. It’s great to have that recognized in this way.”
CMA founder Chris Marr is no stranger to Club members as he explained content marketing and its importance at our December 2016 event.
Chris explained how, over the years, people have become more comfortable with web purchasing and the importance of using content marketing to gain the trust of people online to drive sales.
Chris’s talk encouraged the Club to provide more explanatory content on its website use our events and social media to keep our members updated about things useful for their business.
Doing that and many other things has helped us grow the Club’s membership to more than 130 members this year – a record as we approach our 70th birthday.
Thanks to all our Committee members, members, speakers and guests for helping us achieve this accolade. We intend to continue working to keep improving!
