Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) October 28, 2007
Steve Wiegert (http://www.stevewiegert.com), a word of mouth marketing expert, recently signed a franchise agreement with Business Network International (BNI) for exclusive rights to all 18 of the Kansas City chapters.
Wiegert said the BNI philosophy and proven business results for members made his decision easy. "When you witness colleagues passing 200-300 quality business referrals each month during weekly chapter meetings, you know something is working correctly. There are hundreds of professional organizations, but none of them pass as much business as our chapters," said Wiegert. "Our members are united by one common goal: to generate business results.
Wiegert teaches members to drive business referrals through word of mouth marketing (WOMM). "When the chapters understand how the referral process works; they are able to promote themselves better and apply the givers gain concept. Givers gain is what we're all about and if you understand that concept, your business results will go through the roof," said Wiegert.
BNI International has more than 4,900 chapters and approximately 100,000 members all over the globe. Wiegert became heavily involved as a member five years ago. Wiegert's initiative and dedication to building various local chapters earned him an invitation to serve as executive director of Kansas City BNI. Wiegert's main objective for BNI KC is for all of the members to develop mutually beneficial relationships. Long-term, he envisions having the largest chapters in the world with the most benefits for the members. "Every time a chapter doubles, the referrals triple," said Wiegert.
