Stop Begging for Referrals!

That's not necessarily true.

I'll bet some of your very best customers haven't given you one referral.


Because they're busy and have a thousand other things on their mind...just like you.

If you rely on just your relationships to get you referrals you'll be disappointed.

The key to getting a consistent stream of referrals is to buildrepparttar referral process intorepparttar 137089 transaction!

That's right, you need to build your referral system INTOrepparttar 137090 TRANSACTION.


Here's a Great Example of a "Transaction-Based" Referral System _______________________________________________________

The other day I received a promotional letter from TXU Energy (a Texas Energy Company).

Inrepparttar 137091 promotional letter they included a leaflet that offered $40 to anyone who referred a friend and became a customer.

Would you like to see it?

Here'srepparttar 137092 front side:

And here'srepparttar 137093 back side:

They also send this leaflet along with their billing statements. When someone comes out to your house to do maintenance work or respond to a call they leave behind this leaflet.

You see, when a "transaction" happens, they ask for a referral.

There's no face-to-face asking.

They don't wait until it'srepparttar 137094 "right time."

It happens every time there's a transaction.

Because of this, TXU gets a steady stream of referrals. In fact, they can predict with some accuracy that if they give out X amount of leaflets, they'll get back in X amount of referrals.

The results are...

(1) predictable

(2) consistent

(3) repeatable


Applying this Referral Strategy to Your Business ________________________________________

Ask yourself how you can apply this referral strategy to your business.

It doesn't matter if you're a consultant, dry cleaner, auto dealership, or even a large energy can use this referral strategy.
