Asking for referrals can be perceived negatively by clients, and can reflect poorly on you and your team.

Encourage your clients to introduce you when the right situation arises, and ensure they clearly understand the process on how to proceed with an introduction.

You know who your ideal clients are; determine what characteristics make them a fit for your business. Often, professionals get into the habit of identifying their target or ideal client either by a minimum revenue threshold or by speaking in vague terms. Either of these tactics makes it difficult to effectively communicate to your team or current clients who is the best fit for your business, and who should be introduced to you.
