BNI Meeting in Staffordshire

 

Why we’re proud to work with local businesses as part of the BNI global network

Here’s how we’ve grown Panda Press through the power of referral marketing

Panda Press printers are proud members of BNI @10

Here at Panda Press, we’re proud to work with local businesses across Staffordshire, the Midlands and beyond.

And nothing makes us more happy than when these same businesses take the time to recommend us to other companies, colleagues and friends. After all, word-of-mouth recommendation is the biggest vote of confidence any enterprise can receive.

(We’re pleased to say it’s one of the reasons we’ve grown over our more than four decades working in print and design.)

So when we got the opportunity to join BNI, a global networking organisation with more than 212,000 members across the world, we wanted to discover more.

BNI takes the solid, proven principle of word-of-mouth recommendation – or referral marketing – and employs it in a structured, organised way. Local groups or ‘chapters’ hold regular meetings, which are an opportunity to form mutual business relationships, share leads and build sales.

We’ve been members of the BNI@10 chapter since 2016, attending weekly meetings at the Best Western Stoke-on-Trent Moat House Hotel in Etruria every Wednesday at 10am.

Together, we’ve created a successful chapter, passing on thousands of pounds worth of business to our fellow members each month, and for us, it further cements our reputation for trust and credibility. If another business is prepared to actively recommend us, then we see that as a sign we’re doing things right.
