Simply Referrals Logo

When Simply Referrals founder Steve Bellafiore started his business networking company in 2007, he did so with one goal in mind. “I wanted to broaden my horizons by creating an organization where professionals could meet in a fun, relaxed atmosphere that fostered the sharing of ideas, strategies, and referrals.”

Simply Referrals holds meetings two to four times a month, where local business owners come together to network and brainstorm. Not only do the meetings create opportunities to share business with other entrepreneurs, but it also creates friendships. Members give testimonials about the services provided by other members, which helps instill a trust throughout the group.

You can not buy your place in Simply Referrals. It must be earned by attending meetings and contributing to the overall success in the group. And the best part about Simply Referrals? There are no annual membership fees.

Simply Referrals is revolutionizing the way local businesses network. By bringing together a community of local business owners, Bellafiore also hopes to strengthen the local economy.

“Simply Referrals members are all different in that some have only been in business a short time, and some have been in business 30+ years with tons of experience,” Bellafiore says. “I always come away learning something new after a meeting.”

So far, there are four Simply Referrals chapters in New Jersey, Freehold, Old Bridge/Matawan, Toms River, and Pennington, with several more in the works. And Bellafiore's goal for 2010?

“I'd like to continue our current path of expansion without forgetting why I started Simply Referrals in the first place: To develop a true networking group of business professionals you can trust.”
