What We Do For You
New Client Referrals
Greetings, welcome to The Bright Idea Group, my name is Rob Lamb, and I am your sales coach.
Today, I want to chat with you about getting referrals from new clients.
Many of us know referrals are one of the best ways to build your business. Getting a referral from a client is one of the greatest feelings you can get as a salesperson or business owner. What do you do to get more referrals?
In my experience, it is extremely important to lay a great foundation with your new customer and build a great relationship before the door could be opened for referrals. You do this by serving your client well! Then, ask!
Ask the client if you have served them well. Next, ask for the referral! I know it sounds easy when I say it, but it truly is – once you practice it. Just like anything else in sales, you should hone how you ask for the referral so it does not come out awkward.
So, you have asked and gotten a referral, now what?
Be sure to Thank the client who referred you! You should reach out to the referral right away! How you approach the referral is important. You do not want to be off putting or damage the relationship your new client has with your new referral! Again, practice your approach.
Not comfortable directly asking?
If you are not comfortable asking directly for the referral, what can you do? You might want to send a postcard to the client asking for the referral. There are good strategies for what to put on the postcard. You will want to get the attention of the client and call them into action and make the referral!
Well, that is a little on getting referrals!

Greetings I am Rob Lamb, your Sales Coach with The Bright Idea Group,
Today, I want to talk about using technology to help you be more productive with your sales calls. One of my preferred methods of meeting with people is face to face, but sometimes that is not a possibility we are not able to meet with our clients face to face. Honestly, we all live very busy lives! So how should you handle this issue?
There are a variety of remedies to this situation. I once sold a life insurance policy while my client was 1 feet in the air working on a cell phone tower. I used face time to make the connection and was able to show him what was on my screen.
What to use?
While face time was the most convenient tool to use at the time, there are other resources that can be employed to make the contact personal and help build your relationship with the client. Some of these tools are gotomeeting, gotowebinar, or if you want to remain cell phone based and the other person doesn’t have an I-phone, you can use the Google Hangouts app.
Remember, these are just tools. These are not substitutes for building a relationship with you prospects and clients. They help you be available whenever and wherever your prospects and clients are available.
