Build strong business through Referrals
As consumers shift from the “I” mentality to the “WE” mentality with respect to online (and offline) commerce and marketing in general it’s vital to know who to trust when seeking recommendations. It’s no wonder Facebook is among the usual first outlets we use when seeking out something new. Put out a status update to the effect of “Hey, anyone know of a good so-and-so” and watch the replies come flooding in. People are very eager to share their hidden gems.
