Benefits of the BNI

We're looking out for new visitors to give business to

Being a part of the BNI Magnum chapter is like having your own team of sales people working for you. Members will be carrying your cards and referring your business to people they meet. Successful businesses depend on 'word-of-mouth' marketing as the best form of promotion there is.

BNI provides a structured, supportive, business environment in which local business people get together to network, learn new marketing skills and develop strong personal relationships that lead to trust and the consequent generation of business for each other.

'Its not net-sit or net-eat its net-work' - Ivan Misner PhD Founder and CEO of BNI

Compare the value - word of mouth marketing really works!

Most businesses advertise. We would never suggest that you stop your advertising. What we ask is that you "Compare the Value". The cost of a single insertion of a small display advertisement in a newspaper today can run between £200 and £2,000. Sending out flyers by mail can be equally expensive. The small investment to get into BNI is the most efficient and cost effective way there is to get new business, and is tremendous value!

Business through referrals

As you probably know, it is much better to do business with people who trust you. The referred lead is normally a much better prospect than someone you’ve never met or spoken with before. In general referrals:

  • are easier to close
  • have far fewer complaints
  • bring more loyal customer
  • remain clients longer
  • are more trusting

We also tend to prefer referrals because they bring in customers at little or no cost. Cold calling can waste an enormous amount of time for the few sales it may generates. Advertising, even when targeted to specific markets, can still be relatively inefficient. But a single referral can start a chain reaction of business, as one customer recommends you to others, who then, in turn, tell people they know who could use your products or services.

If you would like to find out more about how you can generate a steady flow of referral business for yourself in our BNI Chapter, come and visit us and judge for yourself!

What our members say

BNI is the most successful business networking referral organisation in the world. What could BNI do for you and your business?

BNI is a fantastic way to interact with like minded people looking to build relationships and build business. I always look forward to our weekly meetings, building rapport with my chapter and creating new opportunities, whilst being able to access a vast array of training resources which also helps develop my professional skills.

Isabelle Carins - Financial Advisor

I set up Kano Design in 2005 and at the first ever BNI Magnum meeting I secured the Web Design position. A large portion of my clients have derived from BNI referrals, but referrals are really only a part of what BNI can do your business. I have found it so helpful on a professional and personal development level as well. The confidence, guidance, friendships and support that I have received by being a part of BNI are invaluable.

Debbie Sutherland - Website Designer

BNI membership makes financial sense! Over the last year I've recouped 5 times what the membership costs due to the network I have grown while being part of the group. I also place a lot of importance upon the relationships I have with the other chapter members. The group is really friendly and supportive, which makes the life of a sole-trader much easier.

Peter Stevenson - Photographer

I have received so much business over the last year from the Magnum Chapter, they have all been very supportive. And I have learned so much through BNI and it’s training and resources.
