uLinkNetwork is a new generation of networking and business development organization created by Folsom locals Jim Pelley and Adam Frick, with a simple philosophy to leverage digital media with “event-style” in-person networking events. “We’ve designed a system to harness the power of technology and social media to help people build their businesses,” says Pelley, the organization’s chief executive officer. Pelley, a veteran of other “traditional” networking organizations, took what he didn’t like about those groups and flipped it on its head, adding in what he felt was lacking and creating an entirely new delivery system. “Long gone are the weekly meeting with people shoving business cards at one another or jotting down potential leads on slips of paper,” explains Pelley.
uLinkNetwork’s unique proposition is its custom designed smart phone app that allows members to send, receive and track referrals, give and receive recommendations, do searches throughout the network and connect to all main sources of social media – to name just a few of its features.
All uLinkNetwork members receive:
1) Smart phone mobile application
2) One touch social media connectivity
3) Expert speakers at group meetings
4) Group coaching and peer review
5) Local Internet search engine marketing of the member’s uLinkNetwork business listing
6) Free QR code generator
7) Regional members-only mixers
8) PODS, which are professional development silo meetings that are industry specific think tanks
9) Special events and seminars
10) Internet coupons
With more than 350 business people using the uLinkNetwork app right now, Pelley and Frick seem to have created a totally new networking vehicle that is working and growing. Tony Gates, a management and business consultant, agrees: “Calling uLinkNetwork a ‘networking group’ is like calling a Ferarri ‘just a car.’ This is a true, bona fide business development group that moves at the speed of 21st century business. The novel app, and the great open houses and mixers, together with useful and to-the-point meetings make this the most valuable networking organization I’ve ever been involved with.”
uLinkNetwork currently has four different groups meeting in Folsom and an additional 15 groups meeting in El Dorado Hills, Roseville, Rocklin, Auburn, Rancho Cordova, Midtown Sacramento, Fair Oaks/Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Davis and Arden Arcade., plus one in San Francisco. Florida, Washington, Texas and Ohio are host to an additional 12 groups.
