BNI is an extremely cost effective form of word of mouth marketing. Subject to membership approval, it currently costs a once off joining fee of €170 plus VAT and €630 plus VAT a year.
We also offer an Extended Payment plan for start-ups. When considered against an advertisement in the yellow pages or newspaper, it has a much larger return on investment.
