The Referral of a Lifetime

Another supplemental book to our training on building a pipeline or a territory. This book aligns with our Philosophy and Process and provides a formula for building a solid network of referring partners that continuously feed your warm leads.

Publisher Summary: Your best prospects are referred prospects. By emphasizing the golden rule in business—putting the relationship with the customer first, rather than just making the sale, this step-by-step process will allow anyone to generate a steady stream of new business through consistent, qualified referrals while retaining and maximizing business with existing customers.

Key Takeaways from The Referral of a Lifetime by Tim Templeton

  • Develop a big enough database to have a steady number of referrals that will support your business goals.
  • Instead of wandering around with a dollar sign on your forehead, stride ahead with a willingness to help people get what they need.
  • Give to Get – that’s so much more fun, not to mention fulfilling.
  • Most people would rather talk about themselves.  Grasp this concept and start leading with questions.
