BNI 60 Seconds - A Testimonial


Each week in our BNI lunchtime meeting, I am expected to get up and tell other members and visitors a little bit about my work in a sixty second snapshot.

If you want to find out a bit more about our weekly meetings, skip to the bottom of this page.

Here's what I had to say this week:

"My name is Jon Ewing and I am from ltd, a website design and development company from Reading established more than ten years ago.

"You should refer business to me because we don't sell packaged websites at a fixed cost – just bespoke solutions tailored to the needs of your business, either for an agreed fee or at an hourly rate of £35.

"Yesterday I got a call from a chap called David who I've worked for many times but has recently got a new job at a recruitment agency. He was having big trouble with their website. There was a problem with the software for updating the vacancies and the company that made it told him they couldn't fix it because it was too old and offered to design him a new site instead.

"When he told me about the problem, I guessed immediately what was wrong and I was able to fix it in five minutes. Five minutes later, he emailed to tell me that everyone there was very impressed by my service and they want to talk to me about doing a complete redesign.

"So this week I'd like you refer someone to me whose current design agency is as incompetent and unhelpful as David's, because they really make me look very good.

"To find out how good your website could be, look into inframes."

What's BNI?

I am one of half-a-dozen people who have started a new chapter of the BNI business networking group and we're looking for other Reading-based small business professionals to refer business to.

We meet between 12.15pm and 1.45pm on Wednesdays. If you'd like to come along to a lunch, please drop me a line or give me a call and I'll put you in touch with our organiser.

There's absolutely no commitment required – you just pay a tenner, which covers the cost of lunch at the Strada on the Oracle Riverside - and you'll have a chance to meet existing members and other visitors, introduce your business and of course hand out business cards.
