Bacon Wrapped Business With Brad Costanzo

In today's episode, we're going to talk about how to build your business using referrals. Although it's a commonly used strategy, a lot of people are still doing it wrong. In a lot of ways, sales is sales no matter how you do it. The hottest type of prospect is an endorsed referral, somebody who comes in because they have heard of you coming from a friend, a trusted expert, or they've simply read about you because of the authority you've built in the market. Sadly, a lot of folks do it wrong and there is always a right way to do it.
