How to ask for referrals that help grow your business?

Referrals are an excellent form of advertising, but businesses all too often overlook them. Maybe it’s because they seem old fashioned. Perhaps it doesn’t seem worth the effort.

However, more than any other type of advertising, we universally trust the opinions of friends and acquaintances.

84% of people surveyed in 58 different countries by Nielsen said they trust recommendations from people they know.

On top of this, we even trust people we don’t know, with 68% of respondents reporting confidence in online reviews.
