Referrals Work

  • 82% of small business owners have said their main source of new business is referrals (Constant Contact) 
  • Referred-in customers have a 37% higher retention rate than other customers (Deloitte)
  • The Lifetime Value of a referred customer is 25% higher than that of other customers (Wharton School of Business)
  • Conversion rates for referrals are almost 4X higher than any other marketing channel (Marketo)

 

bni online

bni online™ is a great tool to help BNI Chapters continue to meet when an in-person Chapter meeting is not possible.

While bni online is a great short-term solution to maintain connectivity during unique situations, it is not designed to consistently replace Chapter meetings. Our 35 years of success in BNI is directly attributable to the in-person Chapter meeting and unique meeting agenda.

It is awesome networking program if you are willing put in the work and spend some time to get out and meet and more importantly, learn, about the new contacts you make.
