Step 2. Identify 2-3 potential referral sources for your business.

Step 3. Invite a potential referral source to attend a special networking conference as your guest with lunch included.

Step 4. Attend IND with your guest. Use the opportunity to find out how you can help grow their business and what a good referrals is for them (if you haven’t already had this conversation.)

Step 5. Make helpful connections for yourself and, where possible, introductions for your guest to the companies at the business expo.

Step 6. Lunch with your guest and ask the panel of conference speakers and networking experts good questions.

Step 7. Schedule a follow up meeting with your guest one week later to formulate a referral strategy that is beneficial to both of you. Hint: If you do not have the contacts your potential referral source needs, whom do you know that does have those contacts and you could make an introduction?
