Want referred leads today? Watch this video and get cracking.
This is a tip I learned about 20 years ago from my cousin and I used it the day I learned it. I got 15 referred leads in a 5 or 10-minute conversation. I was totally blown away. I’ve since then improved upon it and leveraged off it and I’ll show you how to do that in a future video. Let me know how it works for you.
Here’s how this referred leads technique works!
Here’s what I did:
I printed up about four pages worth of local printers that were in the area of a printing business that I have been doing a lot of business with. I highlighted the ones that I thought might be worth talking to. I approached the printing business owner and here’s what I said:
“Hey, Rich, I started a new marketing program and what do you know, your business popped up at the top of the list, how about that!”
I said, “Hey are any of these businesses worth talking to?”
So he grabbed the list, went through it and he checked off the ones that were worth talking to. He mentioned who wasn’t nice, who wasn’t doing well, and so on.
Then I took the list back and I said, “Hey that’s great thanks.”
Since the conversation was going really well and it was non-threatening I took it a step further and said, “Do you know of any new businesses in the area that are popping up that might be worth talking to?”
He said there’s a nightclub owner who’s doing really well, and then he remembered another business. I wrote them all down.
He finally asked what I asked what I was doing and I said, “Well, as you know I’m trying to grow my business and I wanted to introduce myself to these business owners and just drop some information off, you know no big deal. Is it okay if I use your name when I call on them?” And he said it was not a problem.
You might want to stick with the industry at hand, and in this case it was the printer industry.
For example, you could go to a real estate agent or a farmer, etc. and do the same thing. Just about any industry would work.
