The Business Referral Organization Where Givers Gain

Started in January 1985 by Dr. Ivan R. Misner, BNI provides a structured and supportive system of giving and receiving business.  It does so by providing an environment in which you develop personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals. By establishing this "formal" relationship with other people, you will have the opportunity to substantially increase your business.  Join now before your competitor does!

BNI Mission Statement

To help members increase their business through a structured, positive and professional word-of-mouth program that enables them to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals.

The philosophy of BNI is built upon the idea of “Givers Gain”. By giving business to others, you will get business in return. Within this framework our goal is to educate members that networking is more about farming than it is about hunting; it’s about cultivating long term mutually beneficial business relationships! Subsequent to this, BNI’s role is to better educate, guide and inform members in the process of developing word-of-mouth based business.

BNI is about the power and leverage of relationships.

Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all the other members carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone new who could use your products or service, they hand your card out and recommend your services*. It's as simple as that! It's simple because it's based on the proven concept of what goes around, comes around. If I help you, you'll help me and we will both benefit as a result.

Would you like to increase your business by 20%, 30%, 50% or as much as 100%? You can see results like this! Many have. Some participants have added as many as 50 new clients in the first 2 years!!! Successful businesses depend on word of mouth. Word-of-mouth advertising is the best advertising there is.
