I was asked to PM someone for me to share my secrets in getting referrals well I might as well share this to everyone now please remember that this works for me and may not work for you so try to make the necessary adjustments as you see fit ok? here you go 1. Create a blog. This will serve as your online store/footprint/establishment for people to go to and check out the idea you're pushing. Make sure it's kinda easy to remember and treat it as if it were a serious office. If you have a blog about your diary or other everyday goings on, keep it separate or at least don't mix it up with the topics you intend for others to see. Keep it on a separate page. This is going to be the you people want to see, trust and get information from. They want to make money as well not know what clothes you wore today or beach you went to. Make it clean and easy on the eyes. And memorable. 2. Know what it is you're pushing, you may not become a 100% certified expert on the subject but if you know a great deal of information, you'll be able to guide you're intended referrals on the dos and don'ts. Research and experience it firsthand. On the sites I've joined up with, I made sure I got the benefits first before actually asking people to join up. 3. Invest in people. Talk to them, educate them and assist them in any way possible. Keep the lines of communication open between you and them and never let emotions stand in the way of helping them out. You are the product, the boss, the customer service etcetera, etcetera, etcetera... You've sold yourself to them and after sales customer service is the key to keeping them loyal to you. 4. Advertise, advertise, advertise. You've experienced it firsthand, now walk the walk and talk the talk. A great source of sharpening your skills would be your friends, workmates, family etcetera. Through them you will be able to know what works and what doesn't when you do your sales pitch. Never give them false promises. Be honest in all of your dealings. 5. Have fun. Yes, have fun, enjoy what you're doing for it will truly show and you'll be able to sustain yourself in those lean months if you enjoy doing what you're doing regardless of all the obstacles you will face. Like people turning you down even before you've completed the first part of your sales pitch :D That's all for now :D I hope everyone's doing well with whatever they're doing to make money online
