If you sell a product online, and you want to have your customers send you other customers, you can do this serveral ways.
- Ask. It never hurts to ask and many times, if you simply ask your customer, “Do you know anyone who might need our services?” they will tell you some friends they know who want what you have. This is the most basic and classic way of getting referrals and it’s completely appropriate in most businesses and situations.
- Reward. Offering an actual cash amount to those who bring you paying customers is a surefire way to get a response.
- Incentives. Make it easy on your customer to invite their friends to look at your product–offer each referral a discount. You can even provide your customer with a link to a downloadable coupon they can give their friend. Couple this with option number two, and it’s a win/win for both of them!
