67 Strategies to Get More Referrals


Business owners that work closely with homeowners and should always be at the top of your referral list. Because when a home owner wants to buy or sell, they will know and if you are at the top of their referral list….guess who is getting the listing!


If you add value to their businesses and talk to them solely with the intention of getting to know them, your business will succeed. We suggest interviewing local business owners in the neighborhoods that you farm and featuring them on your site as blogs. It is a great way to build relationships and it will build those referral generating relationships. In addition, you will build a deeper knowledge of your neighborhood.
