Having a great business referral system has led many to success, especially before the internet came about. Many of you have found success from other’s referring business to without you having to do a lot of marketing yourself.
While there are others of you that may feel that having talking to people and having a referral system is old school marketing and outdated. But one thing is for sure and that is once someone really see the value in your offer, it can start a chain reaction of referrals to you.
You have to wonder, how are trends started? What really gets people going as far as taking on something new? Something that can benefit them. Who has that power?
According to the book “The Tipping Point” by Malcolm Gladwell, these people are the “connectors.” These people, for example, are the popular kids in High School who if you weren’t trying to be like them then you were considered a square or outcast.
They were part of the “cool” crowd and started the popular trends in high school. Every kid wanted to be like them, and they try their best to follow suit. If these kids were to start hanging around you and said something really great about you, then the rest of the kids in high school would want to be like you too. In the network marketing industry, being connected with the cool kids a.k.a popular people in the industry will definitely boost your reputation quite well.
