Every referral should be contacted immediately – within hours!
Word-of-mouth referrals are one of the most powerful and easiest ways to attract new customers. A good referral is akin to the art of matchmaking. Although you may have not watched Yente perform her matchmaking magic in Fiddle on the Roof, intrinsically you know when a referral is a great match for your business.
Although I love the lyrics,
Matchmaker, Matchmaker, make me a match. Find me a find. Catch me a catch…– realistically, all referrals will not be matches made in heaven. Handle each lead with kid gloves, and you will garner more referrals from your customers and people like me!

LinkedIn is THE social networking site for business people.
Growing up, my mom maintained that you couldn’t have too many friends, my dad believed that you couldn’t have too many business acquaintances (the word ‘networking’ wasn’t in existence yet) and my sister repeatedly told me that unless I was networking, I couldn’t grow my business to generate more profits.
As a marketing consultant, I say if you have time for only one social media site – if you are business-to-business, LinkedIn is the smartest and most powerful option. It is a professional arena for professional connections. Networking is not entirely new to us; however, using the web and social media to connect is what has transformed how we network.
