Did you know that for many small service businesses, 60-70% of actual comes from referrals and past customers? The hard part has always been how to find and develop these relationships into local alliance partners willing to refer you whenever possible. We have already done that for you!
Here is an easy step-by-step way to grow your business in the next 7 days. Try it for a few hours over the next few days - you will see it works fast and it's fun !
Step 1 - Find the closest SmartGuy Business Network to you by visiting www.SmartGuy.com and using the drop down on top to find the closest city business network. This will display all of the members in your area who have signed up with SmartGuy to grow their business (many networks already have over 1,000 businesses united together!) Simply click on the blue linksto see their detailed information.
Step 2 - Start calling at least 20-30 a day and introducing yourself. Don't make the mistake of simply emailing them as it is impersonal and might not be looked at for a while. Pick up the phone and CALL them. You will probably find that they are EXCITED to speak with you as they too want to develop local alliances partners. Remember, they are just like you and are looking to grow their business and have all agreed to provide top quality service and refer each other whenever possible. You can simply start by saying,
"Hi John, it's Christine. I too am a SmartGuy member and meet with many local people every day who might be in need of your service. I am making a list of businesses that I can recommend to people I know and meet. Would it be ok to refer them to you(pause)? Please tell me a little about yourself..."
You see, the reason the calls work so well is that it is a win-win situation for you AND the other business. You can both benefit by leveraging each other's contacts.
Step 3 - Compile a short list of the top 50-60 local referral partners you have spoken with on the phone and check in with them every week or so. Many of our members who do this not only develop great profitable business referral alliances right away, but new friends at the same time!
Again, this is a PROVEN system that works. You are connected to people just like you...in your area...looking to grow their business. The more alliance partners you make - the more leads you will get. It's that simple. JUST TRY IT FOR 1 WEEK - it really works.
