Sales Vantage Referral

SVR LogoSales Vantage Referral (SVR) has been one of the Chamber’s leads group since 1993. The purpose of SVR is for members with professional integrity to exchange business leads with one another.

Besides passing leads, members, on a rotating basis, give presentations about their business and/or industry. This helps members become more knowledgeable about the business and referral possibilities. Each quarter, we have a professional development meeting to discuss current issues affecting small businesses or share ideas on networking, sales, marketing, etc.

SVR is a proactive way to develop business relationships with other business people and a way to grow your business.

Chamber members are welcome to attend a meeting to see how being a member of SVR would benefit their business. Call the Chamber office at (847) 673-0240 to RSVP.

SVR dues are $35 per quarter. We meet every Tuesday, 7:30am to 8:30am at the Skokie Park District’s Oakton Community Center, 4701 Oakton Street, Skokie.

  • Built in Sales Force
    The entire Sales Vantage Referral Group becomes your sales force, looking out for leads for you as well as for themselves.
  • Share Ideas
    The group can act as a sounding board or an informal focus group to discuss products or issues facing your company or industry.
  • Warm Calling vs. Cold Calling
    Calling on a potential lead is much easier than making a cold call.
