5 Steps to Strategic Referral Channels

[ Blackboard Fridays Ep. 48 ]
by Jacob Aldridge Published

Would you like more clients? Have you ever been told that referrals and 'word of mouth marketing' was the best way to find new business? Do you wonder why none of those referral sources you keep having coffee with ever actually send you a good client?

If you answered YES to any of those questions, this week's episode is for YOU!

Traditional 'have a coffee, have a chat' referral building doesn't work consistently. The process is too casual, and you're too polite.

If you want to grow your business, you need a simple process, and one that's designed for a business your size. Here it is: the straightforward, 5 steps process to structured referral building, designed for privately-owned businesses.

(I have one client who has implemented this as their primary source of clients in 7 countries ... so far. If your current approach to referrals isn't working, try something that does.)

Watch this week's episode here.


Take 5 minutes each week to focus on your business instead of dealing with the demands of working in it.
