Referrals play a big part in how a lot of small businesses get leads and customers. Word-of-mouth marketing is powerful, so today we are sharing 5 creative ways to get new referrals for your business.
1. Create A Referral Program
One of the best ways to get referrals is by giving people a little incentive to do so. We give any previous client that’s referred us $100.
2. Add A Referrals Page To Your Website
Create a page on your website with a form that allows people to submit their referrals.
3. Add To Your Email Signature
The better your email signature is, the more likely people will remember who you are, and recommend you to a friend. Jazz up your signature with your logo and social media links, and don’t forget to include a line about referrals at the end.
4. Use Linkedin
Like it or not, Linkedin can be a great place to get referrals. Use their advanced search features to filter out people that may be possible referrals for you.
To get started, login to your Linkedin account and click the search bar at the top of the page. From there, you’ll see options for filtering on the right hand side. You can filter by the degree of connection, keywords, industry and more.
Start connecting with people that you’d like to do business with.
5. Give A Referral
Give and you shall receive! One of the best ways to get a referral is to give one yourself. If you know people that are great at what they do, let people know. They will more than likely return the favor.
Getting high quality referrals is a great way to boost your business. We hope these techniques on getting referrals helpful!
