India’s First Community to Adopt 3 Persuasion Modes for Visibility
We’re India’s first community to adopt and revive the almost 2000-year-old Aristotle Persuasion Model of 4 appeals: logos, pathos, ethos, and kairos. We generate visibility and reputation through the combination of pathos (stories ), logos (profile), ethos (listings/search engine rankings), and Kairos (people – community & networking at the right time). Talk to us to know more about it before joining our community.
Yes, BTS has a lot of Bills & Expenses to Cover!
And, We Need & Appreciate Your Kind Support Every Time
Keep in mind that the BTS Community can only survive and continue to serve businesses better using the payment remitted by our member clients, either online or offline. Also, a major part of it goes toward web maintenance, content development, and event management. Therefore, it is our humble request that payments are made regularly and on time, as, unlike a few desperate business communities that charge exorbitantly for membership, we have been certainly fair and reasonable, staying true to our value proposition.
