7 Awesome Benefits Cannabiz Connection

 

2019 is shaping up to be the year for cannabis business in Michigan. The state is currently processing and issuing licensing for the commercialization of medical marijuana and working on the regulations for the adult-use program. With that comes a lot of opportunity for those interested and in starting or growing a cannabis business in Michigan. Here at Cannabiz Connection, it's our goal to help you succeed with the effort through networking and education. Here are some of the awesome new benefits we have lined up for the new year!

1.     ACCESS TO OUR MONTHLY NETWORKING EVENTS

Each month, we host networking events throughout Michigan. In 2018, we launched networking events in Detroit, Grand Rapids and Lansing and in 2019, we are preparing to launch additional events in Kalamazoo/Battle Creek, Flint, Saginaw and Traverse City. Because we host events in seven different regions of the state, this allows our members to connect with those that are currently participating in the cannabis industry within their region. Each region will have an event every other month and each of our memberships include access to all our networking events. For out-of-state companies that can’t attend our networking events, we will happily offer a sponsorship to an event of your choice.

2.     A COMPANY LISTING IN OUR DIRECTORY

Because our model creates community and we develop content from our members that is beneficial to those building cannabis businesses in Michigan, Cannabiz Connection is the place people come to learn about building a cannabis business in Michigan. When they are looking for a company that specializes in a specific area of expertise or a company that is familiar with Michigan regulations, they can find those resources in the Cannabiz Directory.

3.     A PERSONAL CONCIERGE SERVICE FOR MMFLA APPLICANTS

We offer a concierge service to all MMFLA applicants. If you are seeking a cannabis license in Michigan and you're in need of a service or product, you'll have access to a form on the backend of our website where you can tell us what you are looking for and we will personally connect you to our members that specialize in that area. For instance, if an applicant fills out the form asking for a company that specializes in engineering services and site planning, we personally introduce you to our members that specialize in that service. We'll also help connect you to potential strategic partners that will help your business grow.

4.     WE’LL SHARE YOUR CONTENT

As a Platinum or Founding Member, companies are encouraged to provide us with written content specific to their business and service to be published on our website and included in our bi-weekly email blasts. Platinum Members can submit one piece every other month, while Founding Members can submit a piece each month. Members must submit content at least 10 days before it’s expected to be published on our website.

5.     CANNABIZ REFERRAL PROGRAM

A lot of the companies we work with are also working with licensees. Everyone in the business wants to be connected to the licensees as well, so we are implementing a referral program for our members. We will be providing advertisement credit to our members every time a referral signs up for a Cannabiz Connection membership. The credit can be applied to event sponsorships and content generation.

6.     LET US DO THE MARKETING FOR YOU!

As a business owner, marketing always needs to be a priority in your business, however, we understand not everyone is skilled in that area. Let us market your business for you! People come to Cannabiz Connection for answers. We know that you are the expert in your field and we work with you to create content, showcasing you as the thought leader on the subject, helping you build trust with those looking for your services. While a basic membership gets you access to our networking events and a listing in the directory, any membership beyond that offers some sort of marketing tactic, such as written content and webinars. Gold and Platinum Members can freely market their products or services within our Facebook and LinkedIn communities.

7.     JOB BOARD

As the cannabis business market continues to grow in Michigan, so do the businesses within it. As a Cannabiz Connection member, you can post any job openings that come available within your company and we will feature the openings to our growing network of cannabis business professionals. We will also happily introduce you to the companies within our network that offer staffing and recruiting services.
