#135: This Number Matters Most for More Referrals
If I asked you which number matters most if you want to receive more referrals this year, do you know what it is? Would you say the number of referrals received in 2020? Or the total number of referrals you've ever received? Would you guess the number of new clients you need this year? What if it isn't any of these metrics. What if another number matters most so you can receive more referrals this year? And what if that "number" is only half the story? In this episode, we dive into what this number is and what else you have to "know" about this number to make it work. Plus I give you an easy activity to get to the heart of this number so you can use the information to help you receive more referrals in 2021. You can access the download to complete the activity and the other resources mentioned in this episode on the show notes page at www.staceybrownrandall.com/135.

#121: Deep Dive into Referrals - Real Estate
For this 4-part series we are starting on the podcast, I am answering common questions I receive about referrals that are specific to different industries. These aren't the general questions I receive - like how do I get started, how does it work to receive referrals without asking, how to be consistent, how to track, etc. But specific questions that pop up once someone has decided to get serious about generating referrals without asking. I've broken down the industries so I can cover specific questions that matter to that industry. Though I think you'll learn a lot from each industry episode! Up first with this episode is the real estate market... specifically the "selling of real estate" with real estate agents, home stagers and mortgage brokers.
