Welcome To BNI By The Bay Website!
BNI, or Business Networking International, provides a structured environment for the development and exchange of quality business referrals.
"Word-of-Mouth" is the most effective form of advertising possible! Word of mouth comes from qualified business referrals. Referrals are NOT leads. Referred business is business where the customer has the information they need to give you a call and ask you about your services. They are ready to buy.
You better refer business to those you know, like and trust. At BNI by the Bay, one way we get to know, like and trust each other is by working side by side on projects that give back to our community (see Givers Gain link to your left). This practice enables our members to give even higher-quality referrals.
If referrals are an important part of your business, then BNI is the organization for you!

BNI...More Than a Meeting!
The year 2010 starts BNI's 25th year of operation. When BNI first started, the organization's foremost goal was generating new business for people in a positive, supportive, and structured word-of-mouth marketing program.
Over time BNI learned that there were many more benefits that members experienced in addition to getting more referrals and new business. Early on, our directors and staff learned that BNI truly is about relationships.
It's about a system, teamwork, experience, professionalism, relationships, and much more. BNI offers many benefits to members who actively "work" the program.
