How to get more referrals and make more money for your business

When it comes to generating sales or subscriptions you likely are getting a few referrals here and there.  If you aren't trying to get referral traffic, you're failing at a pretty specific type of marketing, and that is getting people who are happy with you to bring you business lol.  When you're generating referral clients you're basically getting clients from people who are currently using you, who have previously used you, who are new to you or people who just want to make some money off of you (in a good way of course).

In this discussion I'll be going over the few ways you can get some good referrals that will most definitely help you scale up your business How to get more referrals and make more money for your business


Current Client List
When you think of referral clients, you will need to think of contacting your current list in order to get an immediate boost in contacts.  You can simple send out a personalized email to each of your clients and offer them some sort of discount for each person they refer to you.

What I like to do is give my clients 25% off for each client they refer to me.  Now they can refer 10 clients to me and get their services for free as well as get a nice commission check from me each month lol How to get more referrals and make more money for your business  I basically turn my client list into affiliates who actually start off by just trying to save themselves some money.  After they get one or two referrals under their belt they realize they can start making money from this affiliate method and start boosting up their efforts to send in new clients How to get more referrals and make more money for your business

Email List
Your email list is a good way to capitalize on referral traffic.  You can offer a discount to anyone in your list if they want to sign up with a specific discount code that will lock in their price as long as they are signed up.  I've tested it and 35% is a golden number when it comes to getting sign ups at a discounted price.  Some people will say 25% is a better number, but 35% is better than 25% and everyone's pushing 1/4 or the total sale, right?  By offering 35% off, you will stand out from the crowd of discounted prices and pull in more clients How to get more referrals and make more money for your business

Now you can get new clients from your email list, but you can also turn them into affiliates just like how I mentioned in the previous point above.  You can tell everyone that they can make XX% per sale for as long as someone is signed up and you will usually get a few people to help you out by posting on forums, blogs and social media for you with an affiliate link How to get more referrals and make more money for your business

PPC Campaigns
Not many people are doing this because it doesn't bring in a lot of traffic which converts into a sale.  This is because you're running a PPC campaign on a platform like Facebook and targeting online marketers who might specialize in affiliate marketing.  Show them some pricing structures that they can't refuse, like a recurring commission structure, and they will flock to you and send a lot of traffic in order to generate a decent passive income How to get more referrals and make more money for your business

Affiliate Programs
You can sign up for platforms that are specific to affiliate marketing.  You will not be able to add any type of other affiliate marketing service besides theirs and they will advertise your services in their marketplace.  You will get your information in front of thousands of affiliate marketers and they will either push your link to make a profit or contact you to see what exactly you will be offering. 

A couple of these types of platforms are:

  1. ClickBank.com
  2. CommissionJunction.com (Now just CJ.com)

Basically you will put your listing in front of their affiliates and they will choose to promote you if they have the right audience and also if they like what you're offering in terms of commission.  Each network will have different guidelines, so be sure to read up on them prior to signing up.

New Client Sign Up Bonus
This isn't actually a way to help get referrals, it's just a nice way to get more clients signed up How to get more referrals and make more money for your business  All you have to do is set up a page specifically for a PPC campaign and send traffic to it.  Have your UTM links set up so that you can be sure where the sign ups are coming from.  When you do this you can then offer new clients a percentage off their first month or lock them in at a discounted rate for a year, it's up to you How to get more referrals and make more money for your business

I've done this a few times when I had some extra slots I couldn't fill and it works pretty well How to get more referrals and make more money for your business  Sometimes I break even on the first month because a lot of my niches are pretty competitive in the PPC market, but it's worth it if I can get just 1 to stay signed up for 1 year How to get more referrals and make more money for your business



In Conclusion:
Your business will begin to flourish if you capitalize on referrals.  You can give your clients some cash or a discount in exchange for bringing in new clients.  You can capitalize on your email list and pull some affiliates through that in order to get them to market your services, which are always a good thing lol.  It's not a tough thing to do because the happier people are with you, the more likely they will help you out.  The hardest part about this is getting your first client, but that's why I added the "New Client Sign Up Bonus" section into this discussion.  It's not just there for show lol How to get more referrals and make more money for your business

It is really hard to get referrals these days. I think there are more marketers then the customers. You can attract traffic through social media campaigns or advertising, however, converting the traffic to sales is very hard. It is quite difficult to convince people to buy things. Your online business will rarely succeed because you are competing against companies like Amazon and ebay. Why would people look on your website (which is quite unknown) to buy a certain thing instead of directly going to Amazon or ebay.

It is true that getting referrals isn't easy and I had only got one from Forumcoin. I find that unless you have something to sell online, then maybe you can use what the author had mentioned. Otherwise for us writers, who have nothing else to sell except articles, I don't think so social media sites or Amazon would help us out.

When I first joined a forum that pays for posting, I had reviewed the rule about referrals. That you can earn from the earnings of the referred member is a very good bonus to the members of the community. However, it is not easy to find someone to be referred because most of my freelancing friends are already ahead of me in those sites. With affiliate marketing I guess that also runs true that there are few clients and more referrals.

Great post!

I particularly think the way is in the current customers.

Current customers (when they are satisfied) can simply refer more customers by doing what we call word of mouth marketing, free marketing or simply viral marketing.

I think every company should turn their attention to satisfying their current customers, as this can simply help them win over other consumers.

There is another way of creating Referals between Clients without them sometimes being aware, If you have clients who don't like to refer then create another way for them to refer for example with providing testimonials, or case Study, ... That can Wark as Referal tool too.

Thank you Razzy. I don't really have too much experience with the whole referral system and how to build it around a business so this post is absolutely perfect.

How effective are these affiliate programs? Is it wise to spend some money on them when trying to give get your business up and running or are the other three things you've mentioned a more ''optimal'' options?

Affiliate programs seem to be growing more and more each year. I am unsure if you have to pay for them, I doubt it. You are basically offering ads from another company and their products on your site. For every person that opens it you get revenue I believe. It goes something like that.

To get more referrals ,I will set up my own website and paying a cheap price for buying a shared hosting plan. Then I will write some reviews about the affiliate products I want to promote for my Amazon associate program. I will also promote CPA type referral program via Facebook and Twitter etc.

For the referral program that bonus earning are generated from referrals' activities, I will pay more attention on forums and posting comments for other bloggers. As forum has its forum signature, I can post my referral link in the signature for promoting my links and generate more referrals.

I usually get referrals the hard way by talking to them on Facebook or on a chat site and asking them if there are interested in my offer once I am able to find someone who is, I get them to sign up and I provide them with my contact information so they can ask any questions that they have .
This method takes lots of work, sometime you talk to 60 persons and only find 3 interested persons and of those three 2 sign up .

Then if only get 2 sign ups out of 60 persons, and you may need to talk with them and use much time and effort, and also have to keep constant contact with them. I think it may not be worth in my opinion.

Since I think referrals are a kind of passive income, I will just posting blog to generate them passively, getting more traffic may be the best ideas.

But how we can get more traffic ? It is the main obstacle.

The affiliate programs are a good way to get business! I think that's great advice! It's also important not to forget about your established customer base while you're pursuing new ones. The customer is not always right, but I have heard one too many times about how Old Customer X feels less important than New Customer Y. You could argue that a business works that way, but at the end of the day, you do want a good rapport with people who can go the extra mile for you.

Thank you for sharing these. I like the idea of "current client list", and we are trying to use that for our software development and web design business. These are all good tips that I can apply on the business even though mine is not online business. I am also learning to work on affiliate marketing, and hopefully I will get more referrals soon.

Thanks for sharing this post, though i don't know much about the referral link to make more money.
i also believe that giving your clients incentives and discout will attract them more to patronise you.

Have a monthly and weekly goal for the referrals you will be getting. Make sure that you actually get that targeted number of referrals each and every month, and that you are reviewing what's working, what's not, and what percentage of the time you do get referrals versus how many requests you have made.

Your article is complete Razzy, what can i add there? Adding your links everywhere, in mail, social media, and every site you join it will bring you more referrals to your business this is very true but you must work a lot and dig deep on Internet.

Also you need to make them trust you to have them like referrals. Because there is lot of people who avoid to sign up in a referral link.

To be honest, getting referrals is my waterloo. When I was a co-blogger, the blog owner had wanted to obtain more traffic from my connections. With that referral thing, I did my best it seemed that my connections wouldn’t respond. If only they had shared my posts to their friends then our blog would have gotten a good number of traffic. Until now I still don’t know how to get referrals from people in my list. Maybe I need to study more on the ways and means. And thank you for posting this thread, another addition to my learning.
