Create a Referral Plan That Works | DOWNLOAD

In January, we sent an informal survey and asked clients, colleagues, and associates where their focus is this year. One area that was abundantly clear was where we find clients – 93% of us rely on referrals and 61% of us attend networking events.

Not only do we also rely on referrals here at Rescue Desk (hint, hint…), but we’ve learned a ton from our own efforts and from working with business-owner clients who are successful at referral marketing.

In response to what our survey showed, we pulled together a short resource guide to help you get your head around the how/where/what/when/why of securing referrals.
