Ever wondered if networking is beneficial?
First of all, it is! For both me the business and to you my clients.
I have put a big emphasis on networking recently and it has already started to pay off. My first network meeting was with ‘Visit York’. ‘Visit York’ and their website is where you will find all the information for your Visit to York, if you are having a wedding in York and you are looking for suppliers then there is a list of approved suppliers on their website of which you will now find us, VTOL Productions. If you are wanting to use us for your wedding get in contact today!
We don't just do weddings though, we shoot short films, photos, events and can produce images for building surveys which can be render by us into 3D models. VTOL Productions operate in the Yorkshire region and are based in York. We are your number 1 supplier for everything from an aerial perspective. We are therefore listed under the business to business section as well. If you are a business and think you have an idea for how aerial footage can be used then get in contact.
After having a meeting with PJ from visit York I was invited to a network meeting known as ‘Give Back Works’. I did not know what to expect from this meeting but went down to see what it was all about. I met Terry the organiser who put my mind at ease and informed me of how the afternoon would go. I dived head first into the networking and learnt a lot from it and made some good contacts.
First thing I learnt was I need business cards! Seems obvious right? I know you will be shouting yes. I had thought about them but seen as most of my work had come through emails, phone calls and word of mouth I had not yet produced any and as I had no idea of the way networking worked was unsure if I would need them. I’m currently getting them sorted though so for future I’ll be ready!
Where have all the helpful people gone?
They were at ‘Give Back Works’
Whilst at the ‘Give Back Works’ I met so many genuinely helpful people. Ok not everyone’s business would be able to help my business and vice versa but there were also many other people’s business that would help. Dave at Go Utility has taken my details to pass to the many estate agents he works with in case they ever need aerial video or photographs of properties. I ask if you are paying over the odds for your business electric and gas supply to get in touch with Dave via his website. https://www.goutility.co.uk/ if you could say I have referred you it would be appreciated.
The other useful and very friendly lady I met was Liz from ‘The Wedding Guide UK’ who invited me to her networking meeting at ‘The Double Tree by Hilton’ a beautiful hotel and wedding venue. There I met business who specifically deal in weddings and shortly will be getting in contact with at least 2 people I met there. One is Glyn Lacey who owns and runs Glyn Lacey graphics, I’ll be getting on contact for him to help produce some business cards in line with the design of my website. The second is Nikki from Nikki Pix, she doesn’t know I’m going to email her yet but if your reading Nikki look out for my email in the next week. Nikki is a wedding photographer and if you check her website out you will see how good she is!
So, networking is working for VTOL Productions and the stats and traffic to the site has increased already!
