CONNEXX is a community at the forefront of modern professional networking. At our weekly virtual meetings, we nurture relationships both personal and professional, with an emphasis on business growth that comes naturally. We are business owners, industry leaders, creatives, entrepreneurs ... and real people.
Technology has eliminated the need for close proximity. We're a tri-state (NY, NJ, & CT) organization that gives new meaning to business relationships, and how to make them.
We've all attended networking events and left with a stack of business cards, but no real connections. Why partner up and do business with just another name in your contacts? These days, it seems professional networking has meant scrolling for hours on LinkedIn or sending cold emails, resulting in missed connections.
Today's climate presents new challenges, and making real connections in a remote business environment has never been more important.

It's not WHAT you know, and it's not WHO you know.
It's WHO you know that knows WHAT you know!
At CONNEXX, successful networking means confidence and trust come first. Ditch the elevator pitch and really get to know the people around you. We challenge you to leave your business cards at home and try a new, exciting way to make real connections in the new age of online business networking.
Our members are united under a single idea: professionals are people first. And when people work together and build relationships first, earning new business will follow.
Our goal is to learn about you as a person- your interests, experiences, and hobbies- so more people can relate to you personally first, then professionally. We're a networking group that's proud to help business people of all kinds find new opportunities through fun meetings and impactful relationships.
Once CONNEXX members build rapport and get to know each other, they become friends. Other networking groups are all business, all the time. Yet everyone knows strong networking skills are rooted in your ability to make relationships that actually mean something.
If you don't REALLY know a person, how can you trust or recommend them to your contacts and clients?
If you do everything the same way you always have, why would you think the outcome would be any different? Networking opportunities are changing with the times. Many people have yet to adapt.
Career development surprisingly has little to do with businesses interests, the job market or perhaps a high-ticket, stuffy networking event. Other groups focus too much on the work, and forget the importance of having real interest in one another as friends and connections- not just potential business partners.
CONNEXX is different. We are a business networking group that will motivate, inspire, and energize you! We create lasting relationships among professionals and business owners that encourage fun and friendship alongside career development.
Your CONNEXX membership includes:
● Your choice of THREE weekly virtual meetings - attend when you can, as often as you want
● A monthly industry-focused meeting with like-minded individuals
● Weekly one-to-one meetings (we'll help you set them up!)
● Access to our network of HUNDREDS of professionals with our member app
● Business opportunities including awareness & education
● Public speaking exercises and networking tips for the digital world
● Learn to communicate your self-confidence and put your best foot forward, virtually
● Supportive relationships with other networkers (or as we like to call them, real people!)
In today's virtual world, CONNEXX is providing people of large and small businesses alike with networking opportunities that can't be found on any social networking site. We believe networking opportunities should focus on the people involved, with a strong emphasis on making new friends and getting to know each member as a person.
When you make connections and nurture real relationships first, your career development will follow.
Many that have belonged to popular national networking organizations complain about the quality and frequency of the referrals they receive.
Of course, a strong network is focused on business interests and the importance of success in our companies. That much is obvious. But a good networker knows real opportunities arise when individuals and companies set aside shop talk and exchange common views or interest.
Most networking events fail to facilitate real relationships. You may leave a local business event with a few new contacts and a couple business cards, but can't remember any faces or names.
At CONNEXX, we want to get to know the people behind the companies that are shaping the way the world does business. When you exchange ideas with people from other fields and circles, everyone gains tips and insight about how to network better.
● Are your business networking efforts forced and inorganic?
● Are you speaking with confidence?
● Do you come across as likeable?
● Are others giving you their attention?
● Are your relationships meaningful, or strictly business?
● Is your "elevator pitch" predictable & boring?
● Are you getting any referrals?
● Are you part of a network with a positive effect on your work and career?
At CONNEXX, we address all of the above without putting anyone on the spot or making members uncomfortable. We share marketing ideas, sales strategy information, and learn about the opportunities and products represented by the people in our CONNEXX network. Collectively and individually, our members adhere to the highest business and ethical standards.
No member is forced or expected to use or refer another member of CONNEXX that has not earned their confidence or trust. We use a different approach, because it's proven to work.
We DON'T refer business to each other because we HAVE to, we refer business to each other because we WANT to!
The future of business networking is here.
Join CONNEXX and discover how modernizing your networking efforts may change the way we do business forever.

● Do you have a website?
● Are you investing in advertising?
● Is your strategy to distribute coupons?
● Does your LinkedIn or other social networking site attract prospects?
● Are you in groups or social circles that represent a variety of different fields?
● Is your business network always growing?
● So, why aren't you getting business?
● What's getting in your way?
Think about the last time YOU hired someone for a service. How did you hear about their business, and why did you hire THEM?
Chances are they were recommended by someone you know and trust. Apart from business, we make friends and grow our personal networks with people who leave a positive effect on us.
Why should the professional world be any different?
Did you know word of mouth marketing drives $6 trillion of annual consumer spending and is estimated to account for 13% of consumer sales.
Word of mouth marketing impressions lead to 5x more sales than a paid media impression and people are 90% more likely to trust and buy from a brand recommended by a friend.

Once you register for a meeting, within 24 hours we will contact you and schedule a 30 minute Zoom meeting. That way, we can share information, make a new connection and decide if CONNEXX meetings are right for your professional goals. We're positive they will be.
During that 30 minute Zoom, we'll explain the format of our meetings, how to prepare, and what NOT to do - remember, we're not like ANY other networking group!
Next up, your first meeting! CONNEXX is face-to-face networking, all online.
Successful networking doesn't have to happen in person, especially when the current climate calls for social distance and limited physical interaction.
Our meetings are fun, social, and focused on so much more than just work. You'll network, meet awesome people, and discover the names and faces behind local business in your area and beyond. You'll see the potential for growth is outstanding. Most members join after just one meeting.
Following the CONNEXX meeting you attend, we'll meet on Zoom again to hear your feedback, answer any questions, explain our membership and onboarding process for new members.
At CONNEXX, our goal is to build alongside like minded people, not just add more meaningless contacts in your phone. We’ve taken the time to make our model work, and we're positive you'll find what you're looking for.
Following your follow-up call, we'll present you with the opportunity to join CONNEXX and start attending our weekly networking events with other business owners and like minded people.
Once you're a member, you may join as many meetings as you'd like. CONNEXX is always
growing and you may make a referral for a new member at any time. We're happy to welcome business people of all backgrounds into our CONNEXX community.
If YOU'RE not happy, WE'RE not happy!
Therefore, you have thirty days to cancel your membership with a 100% refund should you decide CONNEXX was a mistake, and not right for you.
