Ask For Referrals
This may seem like an obvious point, but some business professionals simply wait for referrals to come to them. Take the initiative to ask for a referral. Many times people need to be reminded that you’re looking for them. But don’t get greedy, take the time to build a trusted relationship first. Give a few referrals before asking for one. You also don’t have to give just referrals; give a gift card to their favorite restaurant or maybe send a handwritten thank you note. Keep the relationship open to more than just business.
