It’s Make a Referral Week: Have You Recommended a Business Yet?

It’s Make a Referral Week: Have You Referred a Business Yet?
What’s your best lead source? If it’s like most – it’s referrals. To better facilitate that process John Jantsch of DuctTapeMarketing has deemed this week “Make a Referral Week”. The goal is simple: drive 1000 referred leads to 1000 deserving small businesses.
Over the course of this week, John has assembled a great team of presenters to speak on the subject. This group includes Guy Kawasaki, author of Reality Check, Chris Brogan, author of Trust Agents, Rohit Bhargava author of Personality Not Included, and Dan Schawbel author of Me2.0 among many others. Hopefully John includes himself as he literally wrote the book on referral marketing.
Want to participate? Here’s how.
Make a referral – Identify a business you’ve worked with in the past that would be a good fit for someone else you’ve worked with. Make the connection.
Refer online. There are a ton of great places to sing the praises of people you enjoy working with – Yelp, Google Reviews, Yahoo Review, or even recommendations on LinkedIn.
Visit the Make a Referral Week Referral Counter page and share who you referred and why in the comments – feel free to add URLs so others can learn about the business you referred.
Attend one of the free upcoming seminars. You can learn more at www.makeareferralweek.com
Bask in the glow of small business coolness!
We’ve dished out a few referrals this week and done some online recommending as well. I’ve been fortunate to work with some extremely talented people within the marketing industry and it’s been great to recognize their assistance.
If you need a referral, feel free to ask. And always, we are always happy to accept referrals for anyone looking for marketing services. Thank you to all those who have already posted nice things and connected us with great leads this week!
