Any savvy business networker knows that in order to generate more referrals for their own business, it’s necessary to generate referrals for others. How does one go about generating referrals for those in their network though? This is a good question because sometimes the task can seem anything but easy. Do you ever feel like you are at a loss when it comes to knowing how to generate business referrals for others? If so, read on . . .
I used to be really concerned about my ability to effectively and consistently generate referrals for my networking partners until I realized something–each and every day, each one of us is virtually standing in the middle of a sea of referrals. Referrals are all around us, it’s just that we’re not paying enough attention to what’s going on in order to identify them. You see, there’s a part of our brain that’s called the Reticular Activating System. It can be described as a filter between our conscious and our subconscious mind and understanding how it works can be a great tool in helping us to recognize the referral opportunities surrounding us in our everyday lives.
Watch the video now to learn not only about the Reticular Activating System but also about another powerful tool which I call the “language of referrals.” After watching the video, you will likely begin to remember times when your Reticular Activating System was in full effect but you just didn’t realize it at the time. You may also remember instances where you’ve clearly heard the language of referrals in conversations with people. I’d really love to hear about your experiences with one or both of these things so please share your story/stories in the comment forum below. Thanks!
