"Referral Marketing is One of the Best Ways to Increase Sales and Profits, Decrease Cost of Sales and Gain New and Loyal Customers"

Attention: Business Owners


Let's get right to the point.   Most companies do not have a formal referral marketing system in place.  As a matter of fact, most business people and even many sales professionals get sick at the thought of asking for referrals, so they never ask, or they ask incorrectly


And even though most every business owner gets referrals, I think very few understand how referral marketing can and should work.  It amazes me how many businesses don’t realize the huge sales and profit potential they are missing by not having an active referral marketing system in place.

You and I both know that a referral is the easiest sale to close and in many instances you make more money because the prospect comes in “pre-sold” and with fewer objections. So if you and I both know this...


Why Don’t More Sales Come From Referrals?”

It's  true that a good referral marketing system can generate a ton of increased sales and profits.  Not only that, if properly implemented it can literally run on auto pilot. 

But the sad truth is...

Most companies don't get as many referrals as the could or should because of two main reasons.  They just don't know how to ask for referrals and they don't really know how to set up and implement a referral marketing system.

And remember, asking for a referral is one thing, having an effective follow up program and ongoing referral marketing system in place is quite another.  This unfortunately is where many businesses fall short.

How about you? You probably sell great products and provide quality customer service. No doubt you have a great reputation and your customers love you. If that's really the case, why aren't you getting more referrals?

My experience has shown me that there are 3 main reasons:

  1. People either don’t like asking for referrals or don’t know how to ask.

  2. When you or someone from your sales team does ask for a referral, it is a half-hearted attempt and then there is no real system in place to measure and/or follow up.

  3. Most sales people get so excited about closing a deal; that they either forget to ask for referrals or feel that they may “blow the deal” if they ask a new customer for a referral. Sound familiar? 

Well it doesn't have to be that way...

Why Are Referrals So Powerful?


 They are independent endorsements from 3rd parties that give you, your products and your business credibility that no amount of paid advertising can buy.


Referral-generated customers are the least expensive to acquire, most profitable to sell, and remain a very loyal source of new business.


They cost almost nothing to acquire and if done right, they come in 24 hours a day, 7 days a week


Referral-generated customers also tend to buy quicker, negotiate less, buy larger quantities, and continue to refer even more business to you.


An effective referral system enhances and builds upon all your other marketing efforts.  It is the thread that ties them all together.

Let Me Take a Moment To Shatter a Few Referral Marketing Myths…

Referral Myth #1

“If you Get “Word of Mouth” Prospects Coming Into Your Store, Then You Already Have a Referral System”

Unfortunately, word of mouth referrals only happen by chance, there is no real system in place to implement it, track it or improve it, it just happens.  You can’t really count on it or control it and therefore you really don’t have a system at all.

FACT: If you are just relying on word-of-mouth to bring in new customers and grow your business, your sales and your own personal income will never get close to reaching maximum potential. 


Referral Myth #2

"Selling and Advertising "The Lowest Prices" Automatically Gets You Referrals"

If you count on a low price to get referrals, you will always loose.  Why?  Because no matter how low you sell your products, there will always be someone else willing to undercut you and sell even lower.

Not only that, but in many cases, you are competing against other businesses in the area with more money, more resources, better or multiple locations, maybe better buying power, more inventory, etc. etc.  Your ad just gets lost in the crowd. 

 Even worse - How many times have you advertised a special price or special terms only to see your competitor’s ads right next to yours with lower prices and better financing? 

FACT: Customers aren't always looking for the lowest price so much as they are trying to get the best value.


Referral Myth #3

"Give Great Customer Service and You'll Always Get Referrals"

I have to be honest with you, great customer service is the “price of entry”.  If you are not going to give great customer service then why bother staying in business.  Without great customer service, eventually you won’t have any customers at all.  Customers expect great service so you better be giving it to them.  

In other words having great customer service, fair pricing and treating customers with respect doesn’t gain you more points.  But if you don’t have all three, you loose points.

FACT: If you give great service, your customers will tell a few people.  Give bad service and they'll tell dozens of people. 


Referral Myth #4

"Your Current Customers Love You and Would Be Happy to Give You Referrals - Just Ask Them"

How many of you dread the thought of asking your customers for a referral? 

Many companies think that asking for a referral from a previous customer means asking them “annoying” questions such as: "Do you have anyone to recommend to me? or "Who do you know that is looking to buy a Jet Ski?" 

Customers feel bad if they don’t know anyone and owners feel bad if they don’t get a positive response.  In addition, if your sales team does ask for referrals, they do so “haphazardly” and there is no real system in place measure and therefore improve the process

FACT: It's not always what you ask, but how you ask.  If you continually provide valuable products and services to your customers, they will want to give you something in return.  The problem is, they don't always know how.  I will show you how, what and when to ask to be most effective.


Referral Myth #5

"I've Been in Business For 20 Years.  Everyone Already Knows Me and My Business"

 Wake up and smell the coffee!  Unless someone is specifically in the market for your products or services, you are for all practical purposes…invisible.  90% of the people that drive by your business everyday see it, but it doesn’t really “register” until they are in the market to buy.  For example...Did you ever notice that only time you really notice how many red cars there are on the road is after you buy a red car?

 In addition, I don’t care how great your office or showroom looks, how many awards you’ve won, how low your prices are or how wonderful your product assortment is, the bottom line is this.  If you don’t have a systemized approach to generating leads and referrals, your company will never generate the sales that it could or the profit that it should.

FACT: A Recent SBC (Pac Bell) study showed in the average geographic market (325,000 people) that in one year alone 60,490 new phones were connected and 54,274 were disconnected.  Old customers move away, new potential customers take their place.  In other words...not everyone knows you!!


Referral Myth #6

"The BEST Place to get Referrals Are Your Own Satisfied Customers"

While you can get great referrals from your satisfied customers, they are not the only place to find great referrals. 

FACT: There are 2 other places to get referrals that are more predictable, more consistent and more willing to provide you with qualified referrals FOR FREE (or darn close to free).

The 5 Keys To An Effective Referral Marketing Program

  1.  It Must Be Systematic.  This means that the specific referral strategies can be duplicated and made to work in any type of business with the same or better results.  A great referral system is one that can generate referrals automatically – i.e. “auto pilot”.

  2.  It Must Be Exponential.  Effective referral systems get many people to refer your business simultaneously (Note: This is one of the problems with asking for referrals -- it's a one-to-one type of referral program, not an exponential program).

  3.  It Must Take Advantage Of Networking.  Networking can transform the power of one into the power of many.  Effective Referral Systems tap deep into people's network of friends, family, and associates.  Networking continues to provide leads on a consistent and ongoing basis.

  4.  It Uses The Right Incentives To Motivate People To Refer.  Let's face it -- most people are either lazy or too busy to care about your business so the best referral systems use some sort of incentive system to keep them motivated and referrals coming.

  5.  It Refers People To High Quality Products And Services. - No referral system can be effective in the long run without having high quality products or great service to back it up (That's where your, people and products come into play).

Here's What Else You'll Discover in This Proven System...



Help them, help you!  Get your referral partners to think of your business first when they are asked to recommend your products.


 Got COI?  You sure do but may not even know it.  Tapping into you COI can flood your business with more referrals than you can handle.
