My favorite way to get word-of-mouth referrals . (2½ minutes)

Networking Groups

Let's talk about  how to get word-of-mouth referrals .

Because they're nearly 100% qualified leads.  

Want   to do it well?  Let me give you a Tip.   

But First, Let Me Tell You a Little Story:

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.

They're number one.  But a close second is from
"Word-of-Mouth" referrals  from friends. 

And referrals from colleagues.  Especially in business 
networking groups.   I also receive referrals on the job,
on the phone, or 
from my colleagues' regular  emails. 

Like this one.  
Which is why I'm sending YOU this note.   

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

Simple.  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 that's the secret:  "Give to receive".

So here's that Tip I promised you: 

Offer useful, valuable "Word-of-Mouth" referrals 
generously, everywhere you can. Do your friends 
and clients a favor, and they're likely to repay your 
favor by referring YOU.

Could I refer you?

A great referral can be a life-saver, you know, especially
when you  need music for your wedding or your next party.

And now that we're talking about 
planning wedding & party music...

Valentine's Day and Mardi Gras are coming up, 
and you might be involved with planning an 
exciting 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  for 
upbeat, elegant music,  played the way you want, 
think of us.
