7 Steps to Building a Referral Based Business...

How to massively reduce your marketing costs and stress...

Too many business owners are wasting money on fruitless advertising techniques only to be frustrated with the results. The R.O.I. (return on investment) of traditional advertising is dramatically diminishing.

With social media, mobile apps and the increased ability to communicate, it is more important now than ever to make sure your business markets itself.

Most business owners think that referrals are outside of their control, all they can do is the best job possible and hope their customers refer. Some even feel that it's inappropriate to ask.

The truth is that there is a formula and process to build your business into a referral generating machine.

Imagine getting a constant stream of pre-sold, highly qualified prospects that are ready to buy from you right now, regardless of your price.

We are putting on a half day workshop that will unlock the secrets to building your business so that your marketing is built right in to your product or service.

That means you'll be able to focus more on creating a profit, and less on what the competition is doing. Not only will you learn the steps to build a referral generating business, you'll also see some case studies that show how this strategy can be applied to almost any business.

You'll walk away with practical, proven strategies and a referral plan that will revolutionize your business.

Getting referrals is the holy grail of business, now you can find out how you can get even more of them, all day, every day.
