Our BNI chapter, Absolute Business Builders, currently has 18 non-competing businesses that pass between 60-85 qualified referrals per month. These referrals generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional revenue annually for members. And we've been doing this for years! We meet every Wednesday from 8:00am- 9:30am at Chompies located at Chandler Fashion Mall (Target Parking Lot). Breakfast is $10 (includes tax/tip/beverage) cash or check. BNI stands for "Business Network International". BNI is the largest business-to-business networking organization in the world w/ 5,600 chapters in over 53 countries (32 chapters here in Phoenix). BNI provides a structured environment for the development & exchange of quality business referrals. BNI is unique in that it only allows only one member from each profession into a chapter. As our guest, you will learn more about our chapter which is designed to help generate a steady source of referral business for you and/or your company. Once you join, you will have 18 members actively talking up your business and handing out your business cards to their friends, family, neighbors and co-workers. This coming Wednesday, please bring 50 business cards and be prepared to give a 60-second commercial emphasizing who and where we should be looking for your ultimate referral.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
