I was at a recent BNI National Conference and one of the studies I heard about confirmed what I already knew. People in BNI get more referrals, quicker sales, and amazing ROI (Return on Investment) in BNI!
In a recent survey of BNI members in one region of Europe, we discovered that six millionaires were created from the referrals they received through BNI. WOW! At Leadership Training in North Carolina, a member told me about one referral that was over one million dollars in value. I believe BNI has made millionaires everywhere.
Hearing these stories got me thinking about the ROI members can get when they commit to participate. Commit to participate being the key.
1. Members get more referrals in BNI.
2. Members realize quicker sales in BNI.
3. Members receive an amazing ROI in BNI.
I’m going to talk about each point over the next few newsletters. Let’s explore the first point.
Members get more referrals in BNI:
Last year BNI members passed 6.9 million referrals. This is an amazing number and it really makes me feel that we are achieving our vision of “changing the way the world does business.” That’s an average of over 45 referrals per member per year. I don’t know of any other system that costs as little as BNI that has a “ROI” that large. I believe there are some big reasons for this and it comes down to some of BNI’s core philosophies and the amazing business people who are members. One of these philosophies is training. BNI is the only networking organization that I am aware of that offers a very in-depth educational program as a part of the membership. Below is a partial list of programs available to members: Leadership Training, Member Success Program, Advanced Training, Webinars, Podcast, Newsletters, Blogs, CD’s, Books etc. I believe that this educational system is second to none and this is one of many reasons BNI members get more referrals than members of other organizations. As our year is winding down, make a commitment to plug into more of the educational programs BNI offers. This simple choice will help you get more referrals.
