    • Goal:
    • Improving our referral follow-up in order to improve the quality and quantity of the referrals we receive
  • 3.
    • How did you follow up on referrals you gave?
    • How did you follow up on referrals you got?
  • 4.
    • Be sure to ask the recipient how the referral worked out and whether this is the type of referrals he/she is looking for
    How should we follow up after giving a referral? Never assume “ No new is good news ” In this case It usually isn’t…
  • 5.
    • Handling referrals we receive should be our top priority:
    • It’s good business A BNI referral is a qualified lead with a high chance of generating business we asked for (34% according to BNI stats)
    • It’s common decency A referral represents trust invested in us. How we treat that trust reflects on our character…
    How should we follow up after getting a referral?
  • 6. Gratitude GIVERS… “… Feeling gratitude & not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it… ” William Arthur Ward … GAIN “… When we are grateful fear disappears and abundance appears …” Anthony Robbins
  • 7. A word about sales A good referral is an OPPORTUNITY The outcome is up to US… Selling isn’t something we do TO people. It’s something we do FOR them.
  • 8. Handling problems?
    • Whatever it is - FIX IT!
    • Quickly
    • Ethically
    • Honestly
    • Failing to do so will inevitably lead to a situation where we simply won’t get an referrals,
    at best…
  • 9. Giving Feedback

    • Be positive
    • Be honest and clear
    • Be positive again
