Steve Sweeney - The Referral Guy
S4 Episode 11
Episode Title – Let’s Talk Behavioural Styles and Referrals
Referral marketing is all about getting others to say good things about you when you’re not around. So understanding how to coax other personality types to do this is imperative to maximise your ROI from your referral marketing efforts.
This show is all about the little things you can do to make it easy for the major personality types to say great things about you. Mastering these techniques will enable you to maximise the effect your reputation has on others… long before they meet you in person.
What You Need to Know
Here are a few tips to implement for each of the four major personality types.
The Racing Car Drivers (Go-Getters/Dominant) Task Oriented.
The Advertisers (Promoters/Influencers) People Oriented.
The Lovers (Nurturers/Steadiers) People Oriented.
The Scientists (Examiners/Compliance) Task Oriented.
What Your Need to Do
Practice. Practice. Practice.
Next time you meet someone, make a point of trying to quickly assess what personality type they are. Then attempt to implement a couple of the strategies mentioned above so you can improve your ability to quickly make a positive impact on them and vice-versa.
This positive impact is the beginning of attracting referrals. Always follow up and communicate in the manner described so they feel that you understand them and what’s important to them.
As always, the power in these steps is in how they are carried out. To obtain the details about this, contact Steve at email@example.com
Then get ready to be brave when you put your new knowledge into action.
Be in Someone Else’s Story
Successful referral marketing is about being in someone’s story. This episode will give you 10 tips to make this happen. It’s an insightful episode as it gives you the tips and tricks that become memory hooks so your referral partners and others can readily include you in their narrative.
Your Referral Group Needs an Effective Agenda
Referrals rarely fall from the sky. There is an art and science to creating them when dealing with referral partners. This show will describe the essential elements of the agenda that are required to create referrals.
Be warned, if the current agenda for your referral group is more about recruiting new members than it is about optimizing referrals for existing members then you probably have some structural issues in your group.
