How Our Inner West Networking Group Can Help Your Business

We are stronger together than we are as individuals.

The most powerful marketing tool of all is a personal referral from someone we know and whose opinion we trust. This form of personal referral trumps all other types of marketing communication and is the basis of our Sydney networking group Inner West Referrals (IWR).

There are many sole traders, freelancers and small to medium business operating throughout the inner west, and IWR provides an opportunity for them to get together locally.

We meet every second week with the view to getting to know and understand what we can do for each other and refer on our networks where appropriate. Whilst we meet for a commercial purpose, there is no pressure or obligation of any sort.

about us

About us

Inner West Referrals evolved out of a commercially run business networking group in 2011. We meet fortnightly at 7.15am, and aim to be finished by 8.30am so as not to intrude on the day.

SB Web Designs

I had never been a member of a networking group before joining IWR. 3 years later and I am still enjoying the many benefits which include the support, camaraderie, and the benefit of business referrals. I know I would not have been able to grow my business if it wasn’t for being a member of a well-supported group.
