Start the New Year with a marketing strategy
92% of consumers worldwide trust recommendations from friends and family more than any other form of advertising.
Look after your referral sources and treat them as you would a good client. Be an active listener and in return ask yourself why would people want to network with you? What do you have to offer? One way to generate referrals naturally is to give people something to talk about, so make it easy for your referral partner to refer you. If you offer a product, service or after-service that is remarkable or noteworthy this will make it easier for people talk about you.
Care for them by giving back in a variety of ways. Find out their goals and plans for the future and think about how you might be able to help. Give part of your marketing time towards those who refer you work. Give when you can provide non-billable advice. Think about your connections and who can you introduce them to? Make the connections and assist in making productive introductions. You will find that you benefit many ways from the friendships and relationships you develop from this positive involvement.
