HOW IT WORKS
BNI’s philosophy is Givers Gain®
If I give you business, you’ll want to give me business
We teach our members how to attract and win more business using word of mouth through our unique Referral Marketing System – a tried and tested method for producing a constant flow of good quality, reliable new business just for you. It isn't as complex as it sounds and it works extremely well across any profession you care to name.
BNI effectively helps you create your very own unpaid marketing team, because your fellow members refer people they meet directly to you as they go about their own daily lives. Why would they do this? Because they know you’re doing the same for them too.
WHO WE ARE
BNI PREMIER Part of the Worlds Largest Referral Organisation
BNI Premier, previously BNI Abbey, was founded in 2001 and like all of us has been through a few ups and downs and has faced many challenges as the economy has grown and contracted. BNI Abbey re-branded in January 2017 by changing its name to Premier which was closely followed by the launch of the BNI Premier website. There are 21 members at present and we meet every Thursday in the Maldron Hotel at Dublin Airport at 6.45am to 8.30am where we represent a wide spectrum of local businesses throughout the north of Dublin city and North County Dublin.
We are all local businesses that get together every week not to sell to each other, but to educate one another about our businesses and the new business referrals we are looking for. By taking this approach we generate a constant flow of new business referrals for members as we look out for new opportunities for each other. In 2016, through the power of referral marketing, we passed 700 referrals between us which generated nearly €800,000 worth of business for the members. Have a look at the Members Page to see who we are and the types of businesses we run.
COME TO MEET US
We are growing the group and strongly encourage other local businesses to join us at our meetings, so they too can benefit from this proven method to gain more profitable business as well as contribute to the success of the group.
