Business by Referrals

Post by deleo88 » Fri, 03 Apr 2009 2:28 pm

Hi,

Statistics have proven that business via strong referrals is the most efficient and effective way to get new customers.

However, most of us do not have a systematic way of getting referrals, or even feel uneasy asking for them.

Do you have a business referral system which is working well for you? Let's hear it from you...

O, you are posting from a life insurance company in Singapore. Please do not add any advertising links or references or it will be 'poof' for you.

As a Financial planner myself, my main source of customers are from referrals.

I have long understood that "cold calls are God's punishment for not getting enough referrals!" ;)

One of my referral strategy is to join a local referral networking group. The idea is really simple, "Givers gain". We'll meet regularly once a week for breakfast to pass referrals to one another. The unique benefit of the group is that each member in the chapter will only represent one unique industry, so there's no worries of whom to pass your referrals to.

Anyone of you folks here belong to any referral groups?

Which? Us playing with what was surely an opening gambit at advertising, or your pathetic opening gambit itself? [-X

your pathetic myopic view of conducting business and assumptions, if you understand that in the first place. And of course your "almighty" self...

anyway, happy fishing in your own world. :cool:
