In my experience, a dog tail can create more than a tale especially when the dog is out for a walk. Here is another of my ideas for social networking with a leash. And again, there is nothing like doing something truly different in a New Year. Here is another of one of my forgotten things to do off line to develop local referral paths for new business. My 2011 business strategy is about bringing to life those referral ideas which have been sitting on my desk for a good part of 2010. It is my own call to action tip to generate another referral.
Tip # 6 -This Tale Wags More Than the Dog - One of the best things about dogs is they love to walk and play at the dog park. While they are busy sniffing out the latest arrival to the park, your chatting with other dog owners could be a way to explore whether their dog or someone their dog knows needs a bigger yard or dog run. Bingo - another doggone referral. As for cats, that is another story!
Imagine what could happen to your bottom line if you focused on creating another referral source. I know what is going to happen to mine. What about you? Do you see this as a dollar productive activity for your real estate practice or your business? What do you do to generate referrals?
