Five Steps That Could Potentially Grow Your Business

By: Michael Macias, Relationship Coordinator at Partners Advantage Insurance Services, LLC

Here are five steps that could potentially help put you in front of more clients and grow your business by fully engaging a referral mindset. This will benefit your current clients, future prospects, and even the network of other financial professionals you work with on a regular basis.

Step 1: Make a Decision and Throw Out the HeadTrash1

Before developing your referral strategy, you need to make a decision; the decision that you want to be in front of more clients and you are willing to put forth the effort that can potentially create the success you want to achieve.

Step 2: Develop and Work a Process

Developing a process needs to be customized in a way that works for you and your unique business model, but inflexible enough so that you will stick to it.

Step 3: Develop “Referral” Networks

Have you ever thought of giving referrals yourself? What if giving those referrals equated to you receiving referrals in return?

Step 4: Harness the Power of Expectation

Rather than be hopeful of getting referrals, be expectant. Would you agree going into any situation expecting a certain outcome would increase the chances of that outcome actually happening?

Step 5: Rinse, Repeat, and Monitor Results

The final step in the process is bringing it all together. Monitor your process over time for results based off of the action items you have taken. Are you getting the results you are “expecting”?

Putting forth effort into this process can help create a profitable referral strategy. When combined with your overall business model and prospecting strategy, you can create a solid foundation where your referral network and business can continue to grow.
