What Are Your Expectations When Asking For Referrals

Three weeks ago I wrote a blog post about “What are your expectations when going to events“.

The same information applies to asking for referrals.

When you ask a current customer to refer you to a potential customer, what do you expect?

Do you expect them to come with objections or do you expect them to happily help you?

Again, the expectations you have will heavily influence the result.

Of course you need to have a good product/service and be prepared to objections, but what are you focusing on? A positive result or a negative result?

If you can just change your mind from rather negative to rather positive, this will already make a huge difference in your results!

To your success !

  5. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get
    the hang of it!

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    There’s no doubt that that you ought to publish more about this
    subject, it might not be a taboo subject but typically
    people don’t speak about these issues. To the next!
    Kind regards!!
