How Do We Serve You?
The greatest frustration business owners often express is getting known, finding affordable marketing methods, and gaining new clients. The Santa Barbara Business Network enjoys helping business owners connect with the right resources and provides affordable marketing services and products.
We serve as a One-Stop-Shop for business owners and entrepreneurs through the online business directory and events such as the Santa Barbara Business Expo & Conference, and hands-on workshops.
We help businesses get known quickly and easily. From new businesses to established "Best Kept Secret" businesses, we're here to help raise your visibility and engagement in the community.
Where are you today?
WHICH OF THESE CAN YOU RELATE TO?
- You DO NOT have a WEBSITE (yet)
- You've been in business for years and could use a SHOUT OUT!
- You are established yet still a "best kept secret"
- You're NEW to Santa Barbara
- You're ready for More Exposure - Speak? Lead a Workshop? Advertise?
As a Member of The Santa Barbara Business Network, you get EXCLUSIVE access to opportunities you may not otherwise have access to individually.

Benefits for Leaders
The Santa Barbara Business Network provides platforms to showcase and demonstrate your expertise. We serve as an avenue to reach new clients, providing opportunities to be promoted, rather than you having to "self-promote" which is not usually received as well.
The Santa Barbara Business Network is established as a trustworthy local network, and being a part of it gives you more clout than working as an individual. We have leverage that may not be attained individually.
Our events are custom designed to best serve our members and our community. Each event is themed and strategic to reach a target audience; supporting attraction of ideal clients for your business.
If you're interested in hosting an event or being a part of one, please contact us! We enjoy the creativity!
Have you noticed that every success principle celebrated in today's business world may not necessarily be a "new" concept? perhaps simply "packaged" to appeal to the time?
Digging deeper we find that these proven principles, although newly packaged, can be found in the Bible ~ yes! there are hidden treasures in that ancient historical book, with stories of actual people, with the same basic struggles we face, documenting what happened - as they lived respecting the principles, or not...
The Santa Barbara Business Network is founded on Biblical principles, which is simply: Honor God. Serve Others.
We strive to see the best in others and treat each other as we would like to be treated. Demonstrate Best Business Practices, with Integrity, Enjoy Creativity, and Produce with Excellence!
Integrity | Creativity | Excellence
The network and expo are grass root developments, started by two local business owners and entrepreneurs, Sandy and Gino Goe, believing God is the Master Connector of all!
Unlike other networks managed by national organizations, the Santa Barbara Business Network is managed locally and welcomes collaboration and creative solutions in response to real time needs for local business owners, like you.
It's launch and development has been inspired by the desire to make a difference for local business owners, in spite of challenges in this technological age - including the world wide web and social media marketing, and to facilitate meaningful connections for a thriving business.
The Santa Barbara Business Network serves as a HUB for Business Owners to connect with one another and to learn about valuable resources to work smarter, not harder.
