How many referrals did you get last week?
If you received none or just one, you might be wondering, "How can I get more?"
Well, here's the secret: To get more referrals, you need to start by sending more referrals. It all begins with the concept of giving. When you give generously, the power of reciprocity comes into play, and you'll start receiving more referrals.
As REALTORS, we often act as real estate concierges, with a network of contacts at our fingertips. When clients ask for recommendations, it's common to say, "You should use my friend John for that. Let me send you his number." However, this might not be the most effective approach.
Instead, consider this value-added strategy to increase your referral potential. Say, "I have an excellent gardener who does exceptional work and offers my clients special deals. Would you mind if I give him a call and have him contact you, so he knows the referral comes from me?" People will likely agree, appreciating the added value in the form of the red carpet treatment and VIP experience.
Here's the next step: take their name and information, and contact the gardener. Let them know you're sending them a potential client who expects top-notch service. Additionally, ask if they have a REALTOR they refer to. If they don't, express your interest in helping them with their real estate needs, emphasizing that you both work by word of mouth.
Be sure to ask for the favor explicitly!
It's crucial to program their reticular activator to recognize the pattern of referring real estate clients to you. This consistent approach will gradually lead to more referrals. Remember, if you keep sending business to someone and they never reciprocate, it's okay to pivot and seek vendors who will refer clients to you. It's all part of doing business. It's not personal, it's business.
So here's a little strategy for you. I hope it proves beneficial.
