This week: Jazzy Printed Booklets (In another pun filled 60 seconds!) and what happened at our recent BNI meeting.
I was much obliged to Anne-Lise Kadri from Voices for Impact who subbed for me.
Here is the 60 seconds she kindly read for me:
Good morning, my name is Anne-Lise. I’m Subbing for Nigel Williams who can blow up your client’s logo using his Canon.
From an A5 flyer to an A2 poster and beyond.
He runs Afford A Print, a Southampton Printers, delivering to clients all across the UK.
This week, Nigel would love you to perform him an intro to a theatre.
Specifically, he would love to tap into an introduction to Roynon Dance in Woolston
For you to write down, Bethanie Lucas who is a dance teacher there,
If you know Bethanie, speak with Nigel after to stage the intro.
So, if it’s to showcase a brand through a solo A4 poster, or jazzy printed booklets,
Let Nigel act,
for all your printing needs, choose Afford A Print, where they have THE cure for the common card.

£160,000+ worth of business achieved in the first 6 months
This week I received an email from BNI SuccessNet. They put out regular emails talking about the way in which people find success using the BNI system. I personally have found the help that BNI gives us at Afford A Print is beyond measure. From actual business generated, to ways in which our business can grow using new ideas to lifelong friendships.
But I thought I would mention, from the email, about one member of BNI who is in the USA. His name is Matt Moosbrugger. And the headline is that he has received an astounding £160,000+ worth of business in the last 6 months.
It reminds me of the biggest referral I was able to pass to a member of our group. In all of the 11 years of BNI membership, the best value referral I gave was to our software company. It came not because I essential found them the business, but rather because a friend of mine knew I was well connected to different businesses. The friend works in healthcare, and needed someone to construct a data system for their many employees. Once created, the system could be replicated across the whole of the UK in other healthcare establishments. I was very excited to find out not only that they got the contract but that it would go on to generate more and more business as time goes on!
Going back to Matt Moosbrugger, this is what he said about the way he received £160,000+ worth of business in just 6 months:
“Hi my name is Matt Moosbrugger, sales director at corporate tax incentives. We’re a tax credit and incentive consulting firm. I joined the BNI Yardley Pennsylvania chapter in May of 2022. Been a member of this chapter for just over six months at our year-end chapter meeting our vice president announced thank you for closed business slightly over two million dollars and I quickly realized that I was the beneficiary of close to 10 percent of that. In six months I’ve received just under 200 000 dollars in referred business!
Research BNI for yourself
Matt goes on to say “I highly recommend that you research your local BNI chapter, you get involved, that you actively Network, especially if you are in a sales position I can’t say enough about how aggressively the members of our chapter work for each other and it’s been a fantastic return on investment – It was my primary concern when I joined – was I going to get my money back? And here I am six months later with close to two hundred thousand dollars in invoices that my company is going to be able to send out for making this investment. So I highly recommend it. I wouldn’t wait another minute I would… go ahead, join, become active, invest your time, invest your energy, it will absolutely be worth the investment.”

This week we received a 5 star Google review from Cadnam Garage Southampton.
We edited the design and provided the printing of 10 A4 NCR pads. Each pad had 50 leaves – the first page white and the second page yellow (a duplicate of the white). The reverse of each sheet had the terms and conditions printed. One copy for the customer and one copy for the garage.
This is what they said after they received the printing:
“Ordered some NCR forms which were edited, printed and delivered very efficiently. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nigel’s services…” Adrian Frost.
