The #1 Reason Referral Channels Don’t Work

[ Blackboard Fridays Ep. 49 ]
by Jacob Aldridge Published

In last week's episode, we explained the simple 5-step process to creating strategic referral channels.

It's a simple approach ... which doesn't necessarily mean it's easy. You have to hold yourself to the process ... and you have to keep the other party interested in building relationships with you as well.

Even when there's a great connection between two parties, I see this process go astray. And it's because of old patterns, and one simple mistake that can easily be avoided.

If you've ever had a referral relationship peter out into nothing, you probably made this mistake.

Watch this week's episode here, and never make the mistake again.


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