Do You Want More Business?
Now, more than ever, business people need to network to stay in business. BNI is the world’s largest global business networking organization.
BNI provides a positive, supportive, and structured environment to exchange quality business referrals. We offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals.
Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all Members of your Chapter carry several of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone who could use your products or service, they hand your card out and recommend you because they’ve come to know and trust you.
In 2014, the 170,000 members of BNI worldwide passed over 6.6 million referrals which resulted in more than $8.6 billion in business! Since 1985 BNI referrals have generated $42 billion in business worldwide.
In 2013 and again in 2014, BNI Alberta North was recognized as the Top BNI Region in Canada! (Thanks to all Members for your continued support and focused efforts helping all of our Members to grow their businesses by referral). In 2014, our Members tracked over $28.5 million in closed business. BNI is not only a great way to get business; it is a great way to do business!
Is Your Member Profile Up-to-Date on BNI Connect?
Many Members share stories of getting referral business locally, nationally and globally as a result of someone viewing their profile on the BNI global website; it pays to have a completed profile!
Watch this NEW short video to learn how to fill out or add to your profile on BNI Connect.
Did you know that you can embed a VIDEO into your profile? While BNI Connect doesn't host the video, as long as you have it loaded to a valid source that can generate an embed or iframe code you can display it on your BNI Connect profile. This is great added multimedia visibility that will appear in up to 4 distinct places: the country website, the region website, the chapter website, and the Members only BNI Directory.
