Referral Flood - How to create a flood of new business without spending one dime on advertising

An insider's shortcut to referral marketing that will supercharge your business, your wealth, and your life...even if you don't know a thing about marketing.

From: John Jantsch
Kansas City, Mo - USA

Dear Business Owner:

My name is John Jantsch and before I spill the beans about what I feel is the most important small business marketing secret in the world, I want to share a story about how I came to this conclusion.

Over the course of the last 20 years, I have worked with thousands of small business owners, either in one-on-one consulting or through one of the many marketing workshops I have presented.

John Jantsch is the a small business marketing expert and the author of Referral Flood

At some point I began seriously trying to understand as much as I could about how small business owners really get new clients. So, I began asking every small business owner I worked with how they had built their business to this point. Well, I'll tell you right now that it didn't take very long before I noticed a pattern...no that's wrong...I noticed an overwhelming trend so big that only a complete idiot could miss it.

Most Small Business Owners Start Off Building Their Businesses Through Referrals.

Okay, okay, I know everybody knows that. I mean, you do some nice work for a client, and they tell their Uncle Louie, and then Uncle Louie tells Cousin Vinnie, and boom, you're off to the races...bringing in business faster than hot cakes.

But here's where it gets weird. Ask any one of the 1,721 business owners that I have visited with what they do to purposely generate referrals, to take full advantage of this marketing powerhouse, and you will get mostly blank stares or what I call the long lost look of the "Plague of the Accidental Referral."

But why. If referral marketing is such a great way to go, why doesn't every small business in the world jump right on top of the band wagon and take full advantage of this obvious tool.

Do you want to know what I discovered? I asked and I asked and what I discover was that the number one reason that small business owners don't use the secret weapon of referral marketing to grow their businesses, fatten their wallets, and crush their competition is fear.

At first that didn't make sense to me so I did a survey of 112 small business owners and fear was by far the number one reason small business owners hesitated in tapping into the power of referral marketing. See a sample of this research

Now fear comes in many shapes and sizes. Some fear rejection, some fear they don't deserver referrals, some fear they will come off looking desperate...but all in all...this is the common stumbling block.

In my book, small business owners are mostly a very courageous lot, but when it comes to looking a client right in the eye and asking for a referral, they seize up in fear. They know, I know it, and now you know it.


Get ready for flood of new business

"Every small business owner, independent professional and salesperson should read Referral Flood and put it to work. John Jantsch has done one heck of a job of putting the pieces together for you. Follow the roadmap, learn from the examples, and get ready for flood of new business."

Bob Bly - Copywriter
www.bly.com

So let me jump to the story of how I discovered the secret to unlocking this fear.

One bright sunny summer morning I was headed into Starbuck's for my usual shot of coffee, when I noticed a sign in the window next door. "The sign simply said, Earn a 100% Refund On Your Shoe Shine." I must admit, I was curious. So I peeked my head in the door and was greeted by an elderly gentleman that invited me to step inside.

"Son, let me heal your shoes, for you have gone far too long without tending to their needs," came the voice.

Now how do you say no to that? Next thing I know, I'm in the chair chatting with Wilfred, the owner of the store.


You'll find warmed-up, pre-qualified prospects contacting you.


"Want a faster path to more profits? Follow the steps provided in this extraordinarily thorough, easy-to-follow and idea-packed package. You'll find warmed-up, pre-qualified prospects contacting you. John is truly THE expert on referrals. This is the must-read book for an independent business owner or consultant."

- Kare Anderson, author of SmartPartnering: How to Attract and Delight More Consumers While Spending Less (www.SayitBetter.com)

As he proceeded to shine my shoes he went on at great length about the differences in shine technique, polish, and application. I'll confess, I was intrigued.

Then, in an effort to make small talk, I asked Wilfred how his new venture was going. Here is what he said.

"Business is just fine, but I can always use more customers who understand the seriousness of the impression the state of their shoes makes on their success in life"


I Wholeheartedly Recommend Referral Flood

"John Jantsch knows referrals like Tiger Woods knows golf. If you want your business to grow predictably and profitably you'd better get Referral Flood before your competitors do. This is a systematic step by step system that any business can use and most importantly it will work for you. I wholeheartedly recommend Referral Flood."

Dave Lakhani
President
Bold Approach, Inc.

I was taken aback by his comments, but then, without hesitation he pulled 4 cards out of his back pocket and proceeded to explain to me that he wanted me have these business cards as a gift. If I would simply hand these cards out to friends, neighbors and colleagues, he would offer the holder of these cards a free shoe shine, and furthermore, for each of these cards that came back in the door, I would earn a refund on today's shoe shine. In fact, he said, "If all four of these cards show up, I'll give you a 100% refund on today's shine."

"I don't advertise, I put everything I have into making you look good, and then I expect that you will tell others who appreciate and need that."

Now, even as a self-appointed marketing expert, with a whole bunch of marketing experience, I was indeed humbled.

What Wilfred showed my that day was the missing ingredient to growing a business by referrals. Wilfred showed me how to unlock the paralyzing grip of fear that most small business owners feel. The entire process tumbled at my feet in crystal clear fashion.

The Amazingly Simple Secret Behind The Most Successful Small Businesses In The World Is the Word SYSTEM. Effective Referral Marketing requires a system.

As the saying goes...The System Is The Solution. It's as true in marketing as it is in accounting, or hiring, or production, or any other aspect of your business.

And that's the missing link, the greatest secret. See, Wilfred had a system for identifying his target market, educating them, getting their interest, making them an offer they couldn't refuse, making referrals part of the deal, and finally, guaranteeing that everyone who walked into his shop, would come back for more.


Worth Many Times the Investment

"I bought John's REFERRAL FLOOD and, (sorry John) even though I could return it with 'no questions asked' . . . I'm not. It's a KEEPER!! Great job, John. And worth many times over the investment you're asking for it."

Bill Doerr

Since that day, I have spent over a year focused on learning everything I could about referral marketing and referral marketing systems and I'm proud to announce that what I have compiled is certainly the most comprehensive real-world study of referral marketing systems ever committed to paper.

Referral Flood is a comprehensive 118 page how-to guide to referral marketing, a 60-minute referral marketing audio CD seminar, 54 real-world referral marketing system examples, a 70 minute audio CD explaining the inner workings of each real-world referral marketing example, and referral marketing toolbox of letters, postcards, business cards, and other referral marketing tools all rolled into one easily accessed product.

Referral Flood ProgramReferral Flood - 118 pages, and 3 audio CDs packaged and shipped to your door in a 3-ring binder (Digital Version for immediate Download Now Available)

I chose to package Referral Flood in a 3-Ring Binder and ship it only as a "hard" product containing all 118 pages and 3 audio CDs (2 program CDs and 1 Bonus CD) because it is meant to be a reference manual that you can put your arms around and hold and refer to over and over again. I just don't think digital download type programs allow you to do that. It may take a few more days to arrive at your door, but, believe me, it's worth it. And besides, I assume you plan on being in business for the long haul, so what's a couple of days. By the way, the program is 100% useable content. I didn't add pages and pages of filler just to make it a bigger book. I want you to focus on building referral systems not reading my wonderful prose.

Quite simply, nothing like this program exists anywhere - at any price. The super-intense "insider" education contained in this course will be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to anyone who puts it to work in their business.

I've done the hard part...all you have to do is dig in and find the right system for you business, tweak the tools and examples included, and stand back and watch while your business begins to produce a consistent flood of new business.

Here's some of what you'll find in Referral Flood

Being a European, I was reluctant first to buy Referral Flood - what if it's too American and won't work here? 3 months after buying it I must admit that it works just as beautifully here, as it would work anywhere in the world, especially where social connections play such an important part in getting new orders. The flood of examples in Chapter 10 is just a treasure - thanks and congratulations.

Yes, I have had time to dig into the Referral Flood Program WOW! I am currently gearing up to expand my business into some new directions, and the

It's not even safe around here - referral system ideas are poppin' all over the place! I'm going to lasso a few of them down and put them to work. John, the program is everything I had hoped for and more. Don't expect my copy back. That's right - print some more, John, because my copy stays!

Thanks for this wealth of information and inspiration. Dare I say that things will not be the same around here! 2005 is going to be something BIG!

John Jantsch taught our organization to focus, focus, focus on our best markets, and to leverage low-cost opportunities into high-payoff results. We've gone from nowhere to leadership in the marketplace, and doubled our membership.

Carl Degen, Associated Builders and Contractors

I met John at a seminar he was conducting, titled something like "Creating a Unique Selling Position". This was in January of 2003. I liked what he had to say and soon thereafter I hired him to work with us on positioning our remodeling company. We have been working with John for over a year now and are extremely pleased with the results. John worked with us in changing our company name, logo, tag line and web site to name a few. John helped us in forming our marketing plan for 2004. The true test is in the "numbers" Sales for this year are up 50% when compared to last year.

John, once again you've shown me the way. I have come to expect excellence from you, but "Referral Flood" really goes over the top! Not only did you walk me through what needed to be done, but you gave me tons of examples of various businesses that are using these methods so I could kick-start my brain into action! I only have a small list of must reads - Referral Flood has just gone to the top of the list!

The evening began with a lesson in writing a business plan; the next thing I know I am about 7 clicks deep into your articles on marketing!!! I had to send a quick email to you and let you know how much I enjoy your suggestions. They definitely "grabbed me by the throat" and held on tight! Very well written and kept my interest throughout - not to mention the exciting ideas of marketing that you present. Thanks for the wonderful information you have so generously shared!!

Teague Electric was a typical construction company. We were good craftsmen, but didn't have a clue what marketing a company really meant. We met John Jantsch through his work with Associated Builders & Contractors and asked him to help us. John realized very quickly that we needed to crawl before we could walk (let alone run) with a marketing plan. He carefully guided us through the process in a systematic, planned manner. Today, with Johns help, we have developed a company wide marketing plan that will give us a base to build on for years.

Pat Shelley, President
Teague Electric

John has provided professional assistance and creative solutions to our marketing needs. He took the time to understand our business, identified the needs of our customers, and worked with us to tailor an approach to move our products and services. We continue to use his assistance on improving our approach and strategies. John has become an integral part of our marketing strategy.

I learned more about PRACTICAL low cost marketing strategy in 6 - 90 minute sessions than I did in a year of College course-work... The key word being practical. I have taken several of the elements that you taught and integrated them with my business practices, and I look forward to integrating them all as my plan evolves.
