How to Get Amazing Word-of-Mouth Referrals

#129, March 1, 2017

 Read on for 
   *  a Tip for planning your wedding & party music, 
   *  details for our next Public Event. 
   *  and another quick Video. 

First, let me tell you a little story.

This morning it happened again!  

A bride-to-be just called and said "Hi, Robbie, 
I enjoyed your music at my best  friend's wedding. 
She recommended that  I call you, and I hope 
you're available for my wedding."

I LOVE it.  

Here's our next chance to help someone celebrate 
a special occasion.   Which, after all, is what we 
do best and enjoy most.   

I'm proud that my band receives most of our  new
engagements from people who catch us in action 
like this.  Wedding guests and party guests.

But a close second is from "Word-of-Mouth" referrals 
from friends. 

And referrals from colleagues.  Especially in business 
networking groups.  See my video about this in a minute.

I also receive referrals on the job, on the phone, or 
from my colleagues' regular  emails.  

Which is why I'm sending YOU this note every month.   

Why am I talking about "Word-of-Mouth"?

Because I've found that a personal referral from 
someone you know and trust is most likely the 
best tip you can get.  

Or give.

And therein lies the secret:  "Give to receive".

So here's that Tip I promised you: 

Offer a useful, valuable "Word-of-Mouth" referral 
generously, everywhere you can. Do your friends 
and clients a favor, and they're likely to repay your 
favor in kind.

Believe me, this can be a life-saver when you 
need  music for your wedding or your next party.

So whatever you're looking for, ask me for a referral.  
I'm always glad to recommend several of my most 
outstanding colleagues.

Could I refer you?

And now that we're talking about 
planning wedding & party music...
St Patrick's Day and Easter are just ahead, 
and you might be involved with planning an 
exciting holiday celebration.

And if you or a friend are engaged to get 
married, you might also be involved with 
planning the wedding.

Perhaps both. 

So the next time you or a friend 
are  looking 
upbeat, elegant music
played the way you want, 
preview us at our next public event.

Where can you can catch us?  Here: (see details below)
