John Meyer returns for another episode in the “Get Connected–Stay Connected” series. There are three ways to build your network strategically in BNI Connect, which is a closed system (a.k.a. a “walled garden”) that only BNI members can participate in, though members of the public can see your profile.
- Through your profession. More than 1500 groups have been established, and many of them are based on profession.
- Based on your target market. What types of industries can give you referrals? If you’re a realtor in America, a relocation specialist in Germany might be a good connection.
- Based on your contact spheres. These are people in the same professions who would form your contact sphere in your local chapter.
You don’t know who can give you the next piece of business, so go out and find them.
