Happy New Year!
Behold A New Year!
C. Kelly, Founder & CEO-Sisters In Business, Publisher
Welcome back from the holidays! We at Sisters In Business
hope you had a lovely Christmas! We have been excitedly
awaiting the New Year, and the wonderful opportunity to
usher in the new members, services, and events of Sisters In
Business for 2007. This past year has been full and
fulfilling; and I personally am approaching the New Year
with reflection and refreshment. I am reflecting on all the
many wonderful ways God has been good and faithful in 2006;
and refreshing my mind anew to receive the new things of His
will for the New Year. Though I have never seen 2007, I know
that God has. So, once again, I will acknowledge Him, and
look to Him to direct my paths. He can reveal to me the new
things of His will for this blessed New Year. [KJV:
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the
wilderness, and rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43:19)]

How To Get More Customers In 2007
Customers Are Looking for Businesses Online
Phone calls, emails, and person-to-person requests from
customers seeking businesses, or needed products and
services are received ongoingly at Sisters In Business;
like the one received a few days ago from a woman
originally from San
Antonio, Texas. She had relocated to Atlanta,
Georgia, and now lives in Calhoun, Georgia. She has
found herself in need of a local beautician.
During the phone conversation, she explained how she
and her girlfriend who had also relocated from
San Antonio had both been looking for a
Our caller went on to say how she had
been on the Sisters In Business website and how she thought
it was great! She shared how she was also seeking
help and information for getting her
own business started.
Like the request received from our valued caller above, we have
received inquiries about real estate agents, insurance
agents, virtual assistants, baby sitters, florists,
doctors, lawyers, accountants, beauticians, and fashion
merchandisers since our opening last year in February
CNN article stated that about 80
percent of the Internet users questioned said they
expected to find a business with a Web site that will
give them information about a product they are
considering buying. The numbers of users grows daily.*
(Based on 2002 data.*) Surely, the number has
grown past 80% to date.
Needless to say, when we get requests for the businesses
which we happen to have in our network, it does us proud
and we happily refer members in our network to
customers. But there are times when a business
that is requested is not in our network.
we would like to
invite you to join the Sisters In
Business Network. Join today and reap the many
benefits of our NAME (networking, advertising,
marketing, and empowerment) strategy. We can help
provide you more customer referrals.
Customers are calling. They could be calling for you!

SIB network businesses.
