One of the quickest ways to get more clients by getting referrals from your network and to get out there in a BIG way is to start telling your Centers of Influence (COIs) what you’re up to in a face-to-face meeting. This can be in addition to sending them the introduction letter and this can be either in a café or at their office (where they have their Rolodex handy).
Centers of influence are people who like and respect you and who come in contact with enough people on a daily and weekly basis to be able to regularly refer you to the right people. They are some of the most influential people you know, natural networkers who seem to know everyone, “bridgers” who love putting people together, just for the fun of it.
If you’re looking to get more clients from the people you know best – the center of influence is the way to go. These are business people who are well established, are great networkers and who can lead you to the kind of clients you are looking for.
You want to surround yourself as much as possible in the network of several Centers of Influence to get more referrals and get more clients.
Just one meeting with some of these COIs over coffee or lunch (your treat), on a regular basis will start revving up your reputation and referral engines. People will start hearing about you and you’ll probably get new clients this way fairly shortly.
Your The Leveraged Business Assignment:
Make a list of the 20 most influential people you know. These are usually natural networkers who run into lots of people and would be happy to tell others about you when appropriate. Call five of these COIs this week to set up coffee or lunch in the next two weeks. Do the same the following week, and so on. Educate them on what you do for clients, your System and who your Ideal Clients are. And of course, offer to do the same for them.
