We are in month 4 of managing our lives and businesses in the midst of CoVid-19. For some, this has been business as usual; for others, it has been devastating. Early on we saw lots of social media posts encouraging us to order take-out from our local restaurants and to purchase from mom and pop shops rather than the big box stores.
Now, let’s talk about referrals! It is the way that most small businesses grow their business. I tell you, you tell your friend, who tells her sister, who tells her mom and pretty soon business is booming.
I usually only do business with businesses that are referred to me. I feel that if you are willing to recommend a business to me, that business must have done right by you and will therefore, do right by me.
When I refer you to a business that I have worked with, I am doing so with confidence that you will be treated well and taken care of. I also know that if things are not going well, I can call that business on your behalf and help to get things moving smoothly.
I don’t know anyone who grows up thinking they want to run payroll. But I do know people who wake up wanting to help people run and grow their businesses. By making referrals, I am helping both the business I am referring to AND the business needing the service/product. It is truly a win-win!
For the month of July – Wisconsin Pay Specialists is offering a $50 gas card for a referral that signs on with us to do payroll or bookkeeping! Don’t keep us a secret.
