How do I invite a cold Whatsapp Contact to my BNI Pune Gems Chapter

Turn your Whatsapp Chat into a BNI Invite

This is a quick, rather an unplanned post actually. But it was very important for me to share this. As it was a quick idea which can be implemented by so many of my BNI friends. In fact many of you must be using this also.

We meet many people on the go, and as a Giver, it’s in our interest to invite a prospective member to our Chapter as a visitor first. BNI has many trainings on this. In fact I had also shared on one of my earlier posts on how to invite a visitor,

How I invite visitor to BNI Pune Gems through whatsapp

But this is different. You may be on whatsapp group , and there you can find many prospects at one place. Yesterday, as I was involved in a discussion , I spotted a prospect & we had a long discussion. It was somewhat like this :- (See the box below to see the chat)

Note 3-4 points from the discussions :-

1. This fellow has never met me before

2. Was just a fellow mate on the WA group

3. Watch at the BLUE parts , they are the turning points

4. Do not forget to take his email ID, you already have his contact number

Best Luck , Keep Prospecting

    • Dear Sameer,

      The most important thing is to stay away from the “Time stealer messages” from whatsapp. Just concentrate on what you have decided t get it from that Anyway, thanks for commenting
