Here’s an excerpt from the podcast:

Fred Diamond: Why don’t you tell us a little more about referral based selling, predictable referral based selling? What are some of the things that the listeners on today’s podcast may not know about the referral process?

Mike Garrison:  I always say there’re three problems. The first problem we talked about earlier which is that most people do referral training and referral thought process around trying to emotionally earn a referral at the end of the sales process. That’s the first problem. It’s a mindset so I encourage anybody listening to have a referral culture. Right? Are you really by referral? The second other big problem is that people don’t understand how to give referrals. Think about it and I would challenge anybody that’s listening, if you’ve talked to a so-called referral expert and that they worked with you or your company, if 50% of what they talked about didn’t give you a predictable systematic way to produce referrals across a wide variety of inputs, they’re Charlatan. They suck. No better way to say it and, yeah, I’m calling out everybody in the industry, they always talk about how to get referrals but that’s not the secret. Right? Don’t be a predator, right?
