I will bet if you ask other members how they get new business, odds are they will say referrals are number one.  These referrals will come from current clients, friends, business relationships and networking.  The most popular reasons for referring a business are:  Skill in their area of work, Professional, Dependable, Trustworthy, Honest, and I like them!!  So this year, all of us need to focus on getting referrals for our own businesses, and referring clients to other MDBWA member businesses.

I read an article recently, and it suggesting the best way to get referrals is to:

-Ask happy clients for referrals
-Write articles or blogs
-Arrange speaker engagements (share your expertise)
-Volunteer or do pro bono work

 Who are you going to refer??

 See you at the September meeting, featuring your guide to online success!!
