The BNI Multiply Your Profits Chapter has been a chapter in Omaha, NE since September 1, 2002. They meet at Spezia (3125 S 72nd Street) on Thursdays from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM. The following are some key success factors for the Multiply Your Profits Chapter:
§ They average almost 3 visitors per member over the last 6 months
§ They achieved Bronze status as a chapter in April 2009What is your #1 goal as a chapter? The number 1 goal in Multiply Your profits is to create an environment that allows for all of our members to increase their business through word of mouth marketing.
What is your chapter's key to success? Our key to success is making visitors feel welcome. During the “I have” portion of the meeting we always ask our visitors to stand up and tell us something they enjoyed or found interesting about the group. The most common response we get is that the visitors enjoyed the fact that we were welcoming and that we had a good rapport within the chapter.
What is your favorite chapter meeting stimulant? A few times each year we have each members draw a random business card out of a basket containing all of the cards from the chapter during open networking. Then during the manager moments they do the 60 second commercial for the person whose card that was drawn. It’s always fun to see the interpretations and variations that happen during this stimulant.
How do you keep the FUN in FUNdamentals? We really strive to leverage our education coordinator to remind the members of the fundamentals of BNI. For instance, if we notice a trend developing with attendance we will work with the education coordinator to come up with an idea to deliver this information. This allows us to address the issues without making it specific to a member.
