I happen to think that local networking groups are one of the most effective ways for small businesses with a tight marketing budget to rapidly grow their customer base.  It’s certainly been the experience for me, and if growing your business is a goal for you this year, I hope you will consider trying it also.

The group I'm currently a member of is an independent group called Network NRV, serving the New River Valley economic region of Virginia.  Rather than simply tell you about my own experiences with Network NRV, I thought it would be a little more interesting if you heard about the group from one of the founding members, Charlie Whitescarver from Whitescarver Photography LLC. 

Charlie is one of the top commercial photographers in the area, specializing in Real Estate photography, professional portraits, and event photography.  He and two other local business owners started Network NRV several years ago, and since that time it has grown to 28 members.  In our interview, Charlie talks about how starting the group has benefited him and gives some tips about how to get a group like this one started.
