Tim Young, Partner - WealthPoint
With our business model, growth comes from a three-pronged approach; referral relationships with trusted advisors, national speaking engagements, and client referrals. When we first heard about Accelerent we saw the value as it perfectly fit our business model. We were able to step into a structured business development network which saved us substantial time and complimented our core business development activities.
We believe in the law of reciprocity and this is really at the core of what Accelerent is all about. Accelerent has provided a forum to get to know and build relationships with like-minded professionals with the specific intention of helping them receive a warm handoff introduction to the people they want to meet and in turn we also receive the same. This process begins in the meetings and events that Accelerent organizes. Here we are able to uncover each other's value proposition, identify possible strategic partners, build relationships and purposely help one another with solid referrals and warm introductions.
We also believe in the power of third-party marketing and know that when someone else tells our story it is much more powerful than when we tell it. The true hidden value is in the various meetings and events that Accelerent facilitates. We are able to be intentional about the clients we want to meet and in the way we want to meet them. In turn, we have been able to make introductions to people that our fellow partners want to meet as well.
Additionally, the Accelerent breakfasts have given us a medium to add value to our client, vendor and referral partner relationships while delivering greater brand recognition to our clients and hundreds of high profile individuals in the Phoenix area. It has been invaluable to our firm to be associated with these high quality events that bring in top speakers and provide a networking opportunity with top decision makers. It gives our boutique company a much larger feel.
If you are looking for a source in developing relationships, building your brand, and obtaining new business opportunities, I would highly recommend that you consider Accelerent. We are glad we did.
