SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER'S BUSINESSES!
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
-Write articles or blogs
engagements (share your expertise)
-Volunteer or do pro bono
