Takeaways Top Tip Stacey mentioned ‘referral seeds’ which are the touch-points where consumers come into contact with your business. I’m a huge fan of knowing and understanding your touch-points and improving these to improve your overall referral success rate.

Favourite Quote When Stacey looked back at the old school tactics getting referrals which were ‘you have to ask for them…. You have to pay for them… You have to be overly promotional or gimmicky’ which can lead to the falsehood of viewing these as the only tactics that work. Don’t let that happen!

And Finally, the Most Important Takeaway from this Episode If you want to improve your referral rate, think of the quality not the quantity. If you do this, you’ll see your closing ratio improve. So, let’s start to put some thought behind our referral tactics.
