Asking Your Contacts for Referrals
The question is who values you and your knowledge? The answer is nobody. What do you mean nobody? Most sales people stop at the end of the selling process. They go through the same old crapola, of prospect , the point, present, close, follow-up! That…
Remember that old saying, ‘It’s not what you know, it’s who you know”? There is nothing that will open doors faster than a recommendation from someone who has a little clout in the Internet marketing arena.
If the opening line in your initial email to a prospective joint venture partner begins with something like, “WELL KNOWN MARKETERS NAME suggested that I contact you”, there is a very good chance that the recipient will continue reading your email. If you can name a friend of his, he will keep reading as well. It is true that everybody knows somebody.
You have probably heard of the six degrees of separation theory. According to the encyclopedia the theory is: “Six degrees of separation is the theory that anyone on earth can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances with no more than five intermediaries.” Putting this theory into action means that you can contact the most successful Internet marketers with the help of only five other people. Everybody knows somebody.
Don’t be shy. Ask the people that you are in direct contact with to give you a good recommendation to someone they know who might know somebody else who can help. Approaching a potential joint venture partner with the recommendation of other influential people will give you a leg up in negotiating a joint venture agreement.
You may be very pleasantly surprised when you begin asking your friends, acquaintances and business contacts about recommending you to others. The fact is, that by asking for a recommendation, you are acknowledging the importance of the person you ask….people like that. They like to feel like they have enough power to help others and they are usually more than willing to lend a hand where they can. Ask….the worst that can happen is that they will say ‘no’.
