Michael Cook, President of Maryland Telephone, recently shared with us how being an Accelerent Partner has contributed to their success.
How Accelerent helps build business
Since 2009 we have gained about $2 million in new business from relationships made possible through Accelerent. In addition, we have given at least $250,000 to other Accelerent Partners.
Keys To Success In Accelerent
Meeting one-on-one with our Accelerent Partners so that you can learn what’s important to them personally and professionally. Understanding their target market, who they want to meet and the right time to make an introduction. We have had great success by getting as many people as possible in my own company involved in the events and have them build their own relationships.
Advice for Other Accelerent Partners or Prospective Accelerent Partners
Meet with as many Partners as you can, as quickly as you can. Attend the events and bring guests when applicable. Year after year our Accelerent partnership continues to produce a return on our investment, as well as new relationships, that I know will be lifelong friends.
