The latest data from the 2021 Sales Enablement from Hubspot report says:

* 84% of buyers now kick off their buying process with a referral.

* 9 out of 10 buying decisions are made with peer recommendations.

* 92% of buyers trust referrals from people they know

Here is the one that I find most staggering ... and is the reason for this episode:

After a positive experience 83% of customers would be happy to provide a referral - that's good to know! 

BUT!! no-one is asking them for referrals -- so, just 29% of customers end up giving a referral.

Call me crazy ... this seems like such a waste of opportunity, isn't it?

That means that 54 out of every happy customers who could refer your business or recommend you - are not being asked.

Today I give you the steps to change this in your business - right now.

You can change this. Know what you need to do, take action and be consistent

Listen now .... and let me know what action you will take today.
