Here’s a simple, easy script. It’s based on GRIP; which stands for Grow, Referrals, Introduce, and Place. The script goes something like this:
Scene: Networking Event
Enter Christel and event attendee.
Christel: So how’s business going for you?
Attendee: Pretty well.
Christel: Are you looking to grow your business this year?
Christel: Would more referrals help?
Christel: May I introduce you to a group of business associates who, over time, would like to give you referrals?
Christel: Terrific, we meet every Friday morning at Gerta’s Pancake House (place) at 7:00 am. Would this Friday work for you…….?
Grow, referrals, introduction and place. It couldn’t be simpler.
Now, what event will you attend to try it? And who will you ask? This script works very well on the phone too. Using it might just get you to The Westin Hilton Head Beach Resort and Spa in South Carolina.
