Welcome to BNI -- The World's Largest Referral Organization -- for Coastal North Carolina

BNI, or Business Network International, is a Professional Business Referral Relationship Networking organization that offers members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and qualified referrals. Word of mouth advertising is one of the most cost-effective ways to generate new business, and BNI provides the structure, accountability, and education necessary to produce referrals for your business.

With over 200,000 members in 7,500 plus chapters worldwide, BNI® is the world’s leading referral organization. In 2015 alone, BNI® members generated 7.7 million referrals resulting in over $9.3 billion in closed business worldwide.

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 who could use your products or services they hand your card out and recommend your services. Because each BNI chapter is category exclusive, you have no competition within the group for referrals. 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!
