When you’d like a consumer to provide you with a referral, how do you ask for it?
- Let me know in case you hear of anybody please
- Pass my enterprise card round please
- I pays you in case you introduce anybody
All these approaches MIGHT work, however most likely not a lot.
Here’s a greater concept that popped out in a dialogue just lately with my pal Steve Blampied, AKA The Mindfixer:
“There are doubtless many people out there who still haven’t heard about me, and yet could benefit enormously from the benefits that you have already. Who springs to mind as the one person you’d like to help right now through an introduction to me?”
That query is directly:
- Specific (“one person”)
- Kind (“You’d like to help”)
- Modest “People haven’t heard about me”)
What’s not to love?
Try it, subsequent time.
