The use of referrals to grow your business


 Referrals are the best way to grow your business.  It is easier to get someone to recommend you, versus selling yourself.  As part of a business networking group, we have formed power teams.  Power teams are a team of related sales people or business owners who target the same customers or have contacts to help you get business.  


  1. The first step is developing that list.  Identify those individuals who is your target market.  Who are your customers?  What is their profession?  Where are they located?
  2. The second step is developing your team.  Who are the individuals that target the same market?
  3. The third step is to meet with your team regularly.  I would suggest once per week.  These are the individuals where you will find that most of your business comes from. 


Personally I am part of a Financial and Business to Business Power Team.
