We started seeing a return on our investment even before we joined the club

We started seeing a return on our investment even before we joined the club. While attending an event as a Guest, we were able to share our unique business model with companies we otherwise would have never thought to call on. Now as a Member, we continue to grow new relationships and business.

Unique approach of ensuring that the members get a significant return on our investments

The reason I invested in this program was its unique approach of ensuring that the members get a significant return on our investments. There are many organizations in the marketplace to choose from, but very few like BCA that are committed to sharing business. Leads groups are targeted at the wrong level, Chamber events are often just gatherings without a specific purpose, and trade shows are about marketing. While they may all have their purpose, I was looking for something that could generate sales for my team, and allow me to help take care of the concerns of others looking to do the same.

Like anything, you will only get out of the organization what you put into it, but if you are willing to commit your time and efforts, you will very likely see a positive return.

We have found the organization to be a great way to grow our business.

FlexPrint has been a member since May of last year. We have found the organization to be a great way to grow our business. We have made many connections (and entered into business relationships) with other members and those in other members’ networks. I have belonged to many networking organizations in the past….this organization definitely is the best at delivering results to the membership.

As many members of the BCA

As many members of the BCA, we have belonged to several referral groups over the years; we have seen many levels of participation with both solid and empty leads. We looked at this occasion to participate in the BCA, not as a lead group, but as a true business opportunity to develop strong personal relationships with decision makers in corporations we would like to develop as partners.

“Buck that Trend”

While most firms in our industry are downsizing and cutting overhead to survive, especially when it comes to their marketing budgets, we have taken a strategic approach to “buck that trend” and expand during these difficult economic times.  Over our thirty-six year history, we have survived previous downturns and even though each cycle is different, we believe that investing now in areas to strengthen our core business model, will prove beneficial in years ahead.  Adding to our already strong infrastructure of people and resources has been our plan for the past eighteen (18) months.  Eventually we believe this economy will change, and by being a member of Business Clubs America NOW, we are adding to that foundation and setting up the relationships NOW to not only be ahead of the curve as a company but offer our clients exceptional resources not available to our competitors.

We love BCA!

We love BCA!  It is a pleasure and honor to be part of an organization that is so dedicated to relationship building at the highest level.  As a successful bank, relationship banking and referrals have been one of the keys to our success.  We leverage BCA as a platform to connect with the business community, develop the relationships where we can collaborate to create a win-win for all parties, and make an impact on our community.  BCA is a part of who we are at National Bank of Arizona.

I found people needed more help on selling themselves so people would give them good referrals to the right prospects

After training and consulting in Referral Marketing for 5 years, I found people needed more help on selling themselves so people would give them good referrals to the right prospects.

After many years in traditional sales and a specialty in referral marketing, I understand the challenges in consistently increasing revenues year over year. Even a company with a very solid reputation of successfully serving customers in their market feels the challenges of the current economy. How many companies can honestly say that their business referrals are proactive and predictable? Helping business professionals sell themselves is a critical skill for entrepreneurs. No matter how good you get, nothing beats a well executed referral based on trusted relationships.

As a member of BCA for 5 years or so, I continue to see how members do business with each other and naturally refer their clients and relationships to BCA members. The longer you stay, the more you benefit.

BCA provides the opportunity for members to develop the deep relationships that lead to business. Members become committed to each others success. I have been training and consulting with companies in all types of industries on how to increase revenues and get more referrals. If they were all the right candidates for BCA, I would recommend all my clients become members!"
