I call it ‘pinging.’ It’s a quick, casual greeting, and it can be done in any number of creative ways. “ Keith Ferrazzi Author, Never Eat Alone

  • 14. Referral Marketing Best Practice “ My personal favorite pinging occasion remains birthdays, the neglected stepchild of life’s celebrated moments. … It is your day, and it has been since you were a kid. And even when you’re seventy years old, deep down inside, despite all your protestations, a little recognition of that seventy-year-old-life feels good even if you don’t get a big red wagon anymore. Don’t kid yourself — EVERYONE CARES ABOUT HIS OR HER BIRTHDAY.” Keith Ferrazzi Author, Never Eat Alone

Walter eventually sold his insurance company for $78 million dollars!
  • 19. Referral Marketing Best Practice SMA: How do you generate referrals? CR: “Once you build your client base up to a large number, then the referrals start coming in. We get referrals by not asking for them, but by thanking people for them . I’ve tried every referral system in the world, I’m sure there’s some great ones out there, but none of them seem to work real well for me. As soon as I stopped asking for them and started thanking people for the referrals that we’re getting, all of a sudden we started getting a ton more referrals . It just builds on itself.” Craig Randall
