Referrals are always to best way to improve your business sales. Sales are the true measure of success for your business. Determining how those sales were accomplished is well worth the time and effort.

Studies have shown that well over 80% of the time, businesses and sales personnel fail to ask their clients for referrals. This is a disaster for any business!

If you don't ask your clients for referrals, then you are reduced chasing those elusive “New Clients”.

The problem with this business strategy is studies prove that “New Clients” spend far less than existing and referral clients per business transaction. This all has to do with trust.
