The Power of Networking: BNI Networking Group sees $1.5 Mil in Referrals

If we have told you once, we have told you a thousand times: Joe Enoch, Rick Donovan, and the rest of the employees at Enoch Office Equipment believe in networking. As Rick once said, “at Enoch, it’s networking morning, noon, and night.” But what’s the big deal? What makes networking so great?


Networking, when done right, can be a powerful business tool. And if you don’t believe us, just take a look at the numbers reported by Rick’s Friday Pikesville Breakfast BNI Platinum Networking Group, which meets every Friday at the Springhouse in Pikesville from 7:30-9:00 am. In July, we reported that this networking group, of which Rick is the president, had already generated $1,001,393 in referrals. Well 2012 is over and the final figures are in.


In 2012, the Friday Pikesville Breakfast BNI Platinum Networking Group generated more than $1,500,000 in referrals between its 27 members.


“That’s a lot for just a little networking group,” said Rick. “We have an unwritten rule: referrals must be warm because just throwing out a name doesn’t help anybody.”


After all, that is what networking is all about, helping one another generate business. And no one benefits from a cold lead…NOBODY!

“We are always looking for members,” said Rick. “Commercial Realtor, Property Manager, Moving Company, Payroll Service, Electrical contractor and Commercial Janitorial Service are a few of the categories we are looking to fill.”
