The obvious place to source referrals is through your existing customers. Instead of thinking of individual referrals consider ways to generate multiple referrals.

Customer Network Referrals

The key to building a referral network through your customers is to design a systematic approach into your overall sales process and customer service.

Most people ask for a referral after the product or service has been delivered. Yet, the best time to ask is before you even start! In this way referrals become a condition of doing business and you set the expectation for what’s about to come. Then, you just need to exceed expectations. And, you can do that by simply tossing in something extra to what was expected – like 7 items in a box of 6.
