Using Social Media for Referrals – Just Ask!
My theme for using social media for referrals: If you ask, you shall receive!
I am continually amazed at the ease of passing referrals using social media. Recently a co-worker of mine was looking for a realtor in the Washington Township area in Indianapolis. She is looking into purchasing a new home and needed a starting point. I offered to post this request on Facebook to see if my network of friends could help. It took just seconds to post my request online for all of my friends to see in my status update. Within 30-40 minutes I had a list over 10 realtors to give to my friend! But these weren’t just any realtors. These were all realtors that came highly recommended. And they were not just highly recommended by anyone, they were highly recommended by my friends and people I know. I was able to confidently pass along these names knowing that my friend will have a solid list of realtors from which to pick.
These requests are taking place every single day on social media networks. Keep your eyes open and take advantage of the opportunities!
