Read About How BNIT is Transforming Businesses In Sonoma County!
I am a 15 year member of BNIT (Best Networkers In Town) in Santa Rosa. I feel that 15% to 20% of my income comes directly from my active participation in BNI and use of its format. Present and past members are still working for me even when I am not. The power of “Givers Gain” gives me a source of referrals for myself and my customers that I can count on to give the best service and value we are looking for. Not only have I created new friendships but I have learned valuable marketing techniques, speaking skill and how to let people know who I am and what I do.
Joining BNIT has been a great business decision for me and our company. In just over two years, referrals from BNIT now account for ~20% of our business and the relationships I’ve built have been invaluable. I consider the members of our chapter “family” and confidently refer business to them–I know my friends and clients will be well taken care of. It’s extremely rewarding to help them grow their businesses and provide value to the people I know at the same time. Love this group!
Since joining BNIT my business has become more predictable and more fun. I have met so many terrific people over the years in BNIT, and many have become clients. Working with terrific people has made my work fun and more enjoyable. For the last few years referrals from BNIT have accounted for about 30% of my business.
After a recent move across the country, I knew I had to connect to the right people in order to re-establish my business here in Sonoma County. I joined BNIT 4 months ago, and its been the best decision I’ve made for my business in years. I’ve made invaluable connections in the local wine, agriculture, real estate & non-profit industries. I’ve received referrals leading to 6 closed projects, and am on track to double my revenues from last year. I’ve hired a half a dozen of my fellow members (so far) – these people are the absolute BEST in their industries. BNIT members work hard and have a lot of fun in the process – I never thought I’d actually look forward to waking up early on Friday mornings!
