    • Management & Marketing

Referrals, Prospects, Sales, Relationships, Engagement
 
Summary
 
When it comes to obtaining referrals, there’s often something very important missing. We’ll look at that in our Thought of the Day. And in our interview segment, referral icon Bill Cates joins us with a powerful look into dramatically increasing the amount of high-quality referrals and introductions that you receive. That and more on today’s show.
 
Bob's Thought of the Day
 
We’ll explore:
 
An engaging story about a Realtor® who served her clients extremely well, yet never received a referral from them. The importance of putting proper systems in place in order to create an environment for referrals to occur on a regular and predictable basis.  
Interview with Bill Cates
 
You’ll discover:
 
Why there is a low correlation between client satisfaction and the giving of referrals. That to create exponential growth you’ll need to be more proactive. An overview of the perpetual revenue system: Engagement, Leverage, Connection. The essence of being referrable: making a value connection and a human connection. Bill’s powerful and effective “VIPS” process for asking for referrals. The importance of the “Value Discussion.” What it means to go “beyond the referral.” Some of the language and questions to use in order to comfortably set the appointment. Two types of research to go through before you get on the phone with a prospect (warm and cold research). Behind-the-scenes stories of Bill’s adventures around the world.
