NYN is not a business directory where you have to search for contacts and then cold call. NYN is an intelligent online matching system that provides members with word-of-mouth introductions to clients that they requested to meet.
What are the major benefits of being a member of NYN?
Members get what they ask for not what they hope for. Depending on your package, you will receive anything from 3 to 30 vetted quality introductions as per your request. The system also offers the advantage of equal give and take, unlike other networking situations. Your chances of closing deals are also 70% higher than if you were not introduced to your client by a trusted person. The saving of time and money are one of the biggest attributes.
Should I quit my existing marketing efforts?
When it comes to marketing, less is not more. If you have a solid marketing strategy in place, then keep on doing what yields results. However, unlike other marketing efforts, NYN is extremely time and cost effective bringing you into direct contact with your preferred client. We therefore believe that NYN should be part of every business’s marketing efforts.
Which businesses will typically benefit from NYN?
ANY business that provides a business to business product or service and wants to do more business will be able to benefit from our intelligent system.
How do I know what to ask for when requesting my introductions?
To guide you in growing your business, we categorised the type of introductions as follows:
A potential client in an industry and sub-industry of your choice, specialising in a specific area. You know who you usually do business with. You know your business, we do not. Please help us to give you quality word-of-mouth introductions by being as specific as possible in your requests; do the necessary homework and research on your potential clients.
A Cross Referral Partner – These are industries that you generally share clients with but do not compete with. An example would be an electrician and a plumber who can often cross refer.
Contract Services – This would be businesses that usually insource your product or service or a business you can benefit from if you sign a service contract with them.
A Business Improvement Partner – This would be anyone that you feel would be able to assist you in achieving the short, medium- or long-term goals of your business.
Who will do the introduction to my requested client?
A fellow NYN member will get an email stating that there was someone in their network that was matched to you. You will also receive this notification via email. We will request that you contact the other member, who will be expecting your call, to arrange an introduction.
Will I receive the same introduction twice?
NO! That would be useless, now wouldn’t it? Our system was built in such a way that you will always receive a brand new introduction.
How are members and network contacts vetted?
At NYN we only allow reputable businesses into our network. We will do a CIPC check on every prospective member (where a registration number is available) and also conduct other investigations of our own in terms of company registration, contact details, website, etc. to ensure the accuracy and validity of the information. We are very serious about quality!
How do I know that I will receive quality introductions each month?
You’ll have to take our word for it! But, if we can’t deliver for some reason, we will be the first to let you know and that month’s subscription will be on us.
How many introductions will I receive per month and when?
It depends on the package you subscribe to. For the Premium package you will get 3 unique introductions per month and for the Supreme package 5 unique introductions per month. You will receive your requested leads within a 31 day cycle from the date you have subscribed.
Will you share the details of my network contacts with anyone?
Absolutely not! All information you provide on the system is secure. You will only be introduced to other NYN members and receive their contact details on a match being made with one of their network contacts. All your contacts can only be contacted by yourself and their information will only be given to your fellow member should they wish to make contact with him/her.
Your registration fee goes towards vetting you as a prospective member as well as all your network contacts on various platforms. It is also to cover the cost of creating a profile for you and your business, all financial transactions we incur from your subscription and also to activate your membership so that you may start to receive introductions.
Can I cancel my membership at any time?
You will be required to make use of our system for at least 3 months where after you may cancel at any time if you feel that you gained from the system what you wanted to. Growth is an ongoing process, so we believe that this should be a long term investment that you make for your business. But the decision is completely up to you on when you want to cancel.
When does a month start and end and when will I be invoiced?
Your monthly subscription will start on the date on which you become a member and will renew for the next month on the same day of the following month. Your subscription fee will be deducted on the same date each month and the minimum number of 3 or 5 introductions will be allocated to you within that month.
Do you have packages / contracts available that come at a reduced monthly subscription if I subscribe for a longer period?
Absolutely. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about our different payment options.
How do I become an agent of NYN and what are the benefits?
