How to Get More Word-of-Mouth Referrals

Most businesses want more of those golden nuggets, the word-of-mouth referral, but they struggle to get them in a systematic way! Just imagine how much more business you would have if you had more word-of-mouth referrals.  In this session, Matt Ward will provide you with a clear understanding that you don’t actually need to do marketing, you just need to care about your clients and contacts.

You will leave armed with the knowledge and clear takeaways for things you can implement in your business immediately, resulting in a closer connection with your clients, prospects, partners, contacts, and more word-of-mouth referrals.

Attend this seminar to learn:

  • How to exceed client expectations so they communicate your value to their network
  • Identify opportunities to connect with contacts in a deeper way, cutting through the noise
  • Choose the ideal contacts that would be more likely to refer business to you
  • Perform actions that ensure your name is top of mind for referrals
  • Identify why asking for referrals never works
The meeting and dinner price is $45 for members and first time attendees. All others are $65.
