I was just in Raleigh, NC where I spoke at the Achieve Systems conference on how to develop strong referral partnerships to grow business. Over the years, I’ve had some amazing, ongoing referral partnerships that really kept a steady influx of clients coming my way. These partnerships have literally sent me hundreds of thousands of dollars in business over the years and I would love to share my strategies with you so you can have similar successes.
My first and most magical referral partnership grew from the very first networking event I had ever attended (you can read about my first experience networking here). What makes it magical was that I had no idea back then or a strategy behind it, it simply happened naturally.
I met Marty at that first networking event and shortly thereafter, he and his wife hired me for personal training twice a week. Marty is an accountant with his own practice and his wife, Lori is a partner of an accounting firm in Denver.
Once we began working together, Lori started getting results and others in her office noticed and were asking her what she was doing. She started to share my information with people and she also got me into the office gym to provide free equipment orientations for people who wanted to use the company gym. I started holding a couple of workout groups there and private training sessions as well.
Marty also started sharing how I was helping them as a couple improve their fitness level with both his clients and his business network.
At any given time over the past 9 years, their referrals were equal to a large percentage of my business. What they did for me and my business was simply amazing! And this is just 1 example of the many power partners I’ve had over the years.
Looking back on it, I can see the components that made this process very successful and very duplicatable.
When you put these pieces together, create multiple relationships that support a system like this, it makes for a winning team of powerful referral partners that will help give your business a consistent stream of customers.
