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!
