Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) December 30, 2013
BNI was developed by its founder, Ivan Misner, with the expressed purpose of developing business relationships and passing job referrals to member organizations. One unique characteristic of BNI is that each local networking group is comprised of businesses from non-competing industries. For example, there is only one web designer, one residential Realtor and one title & settlement company in the Pooks Hill Marriott group in Bethesda, MD. This unique structure minimizes competition within the group and fosters natural partnerships among member organizations.
The BNI group that Loebig Ink joined is called the Bethesda Business Exchange and meets every Wednesday morning at the Agio Restaurant at 5151 Pooks Hill Rd. in Bethesda, MD. Founding members of the group include:
The BNI Bethesda Business Exchange is considered a "platinum" group since members have passed more than 1 million dollars in business referrals to each other annually. Loebig Ink has also experienced early gains including a referral to Make It Count Marketing by chapter president, Douglas Hill of RightsAssist, which has resulted in strategic partnerships with Make It Count Marketing as well as RWS Consulting. Jett Training, LLC, a "Best of Bethesda" award winner and BNI member organization, has also engaged Loebig Ink to help develop a comprehensive Internet marketing strategy for the new year.
Participating organizations in the BNI Bethesda Business Exchange include:
