Referral selling is a marketing strategy that involves leveraging personal relationships to generate leads and sales. This technique involves asking satisfied customers, colleagues, and other contacts to refer their friends, family, and acquaintances. Referral selling is an effective way to build trust with potential customers and increase the chances of converting leads into sales.
Why it matters in sales
Referral selling is more powerful than a unicorn with a jetpack riding a rainbow. The reason is simple: people trust people they know. It's the oldest social proof in the book. Not only do referrals help bridge the gap between buyer and seller, they also save a lot of time and energy. Think about it, you wouldn't trust a stranger with your cat, let alone your business. A referral acts as a warm introduction, making the sales process smoother than a baby's bottom.
