Just think back to the last client where you really did a good job.
Did you get a referral?
If the client was happy, why didn’t they send more business your way?
Did you have to wade into those uncomfortable waters (that every business owner hates) and actually ASK for a referral?
That’s awkward and uncomfortable.
And it always takes something away from the relationship with your client no matter how you phrase the question.
You know that all of the social dynamic I describe exists and is real. And you know that when you ask a client to give you a referral or make an introduction, you place them in a difficult and uncomfortable position.
So you, and millions of business people like you, avoid the situation altogether and simply allow the referrals to happen or not, without your intervention.
Hey…you’re not alone.
For his book The Referral Engine, John Jantsch polled several thousand business owners.
Here’s what he found:
63% said they get more than half of their new business from referrals
But, here’s the scary part…
79.9% said they have no process for getting referrals.
So 8 out of 10 business people are avoiding the referral issue and are just “hoping” those referrals arrive.
So what’s the answer?
