With these four steps, you can significantly increase the number of sales referrals you get. And as we saw before, those referrals are insanely valuable. But you need to make referrals part of your company DNA.
After all, with 39% of consumers building trust in a brand from peer-to-peer conversations and view other consumers as 14% more credible than brand employees, banking on attracting potential customers through your sales marketing efforts alone just isn't a sound strategy. You should also be tapping into your existing customer base as a source for business referrals.
This system could be point-based, or it could even be a premium membership. It could also extend beyond just customer referrals as well. No matter how you do it, make sure your customers feel valued and inspired to become loyal. In turn, loyal customers will talk, especially when delighted, and give you free referrals through word-of-mouth marketing to their family, friends, and even strangers online.
If you do want your customers to make referrals, give them a reason to talk about your company. As you approach your day-to-day, you must constantly be innovating in the area of customer experience. Not only do you want to delight them, but you want to delight them in a way that will put you top of mind. You want them to say to individuals in their network, "You will not believe what happened to me today."
Adopting a customer referral program is a great way for your team to be proactive when acquiring new referrals. Our post on how to build a customer referral program asserts, "that you're confident enough in your services and team to know that a referral program would be a positive investment."
You wouldn't ask your boss for a raise right after you missed the mark on your monthly metrics, which is precisely why it wouldn't be appropriate (or effective) to request a referral when you're under-delivering on what you promised a customer. The best referrals come about after the customer has had an opportunity to experience the value that you're capable of delivering.
If you get pushback when you ask for customer referrals, the first step is to back off and give them space. It's not important that you know the exact reason why they're saying no, and you want to be respectful of your relationship.

Studies have found that referred customers tend to make purchases more often, are more loyal, and make more referrals. That's precisely why the CLV of referred customers is greater than non-referred customers.
There might come a time when your referral program will be challenging to manage. The things that go into a referral program like signing up new customers and tracking referrals and sales might start taking up too much of your time.
Growing your referral program won't happen overnight. But there's a way to make sure it brings you a steady stream of referrals. The key lies in your existing customers. They're the ones who hold all the power and on which the success of your program depends. Leverage your existing customers by making it easy and enticing for them to refer your program, and they will do the hard work for you.
Context: In the United States, more than a third of patients are referred to a specialist each year, and specialist visits constitute more than half of outpatient visits. Despite the frequency of referrals and the importance of the specialty-referral process, the process itself has been a long-standing source of frustration among both primary care physicians (PCPs) and specialists. These frustrations, along with a desire to lower costs, have led to numerous strategies to improve the specialty-referral process, such as using gatekeepers and referral guidelines.
Findings: PCPs vary in their threshold for referring a patient, which results in both the underuse and the overuse of specialists. Many referrals do not include a transfer of information, either to or from the specialist; and when they do, it often contains insufficient data for medical decision making. Care across the primary-specialty interface is poorly integrated; PCPs often do not know whether a patient actually went to the specialist, or what the specialist recommended. PCPs and specialists also frequently disagree on the specialist's role during the referral episode (e.g., single consultation or continuing co-management).

No, community providers do not need to be part of the Community Care Network (CCN) to use HSRM. Non-CCN community providers may instead have a Veterans Care Agreement (VCA). VA encourages all community providers who receive referrals for Veteran care from VA medical centers to use HSRM for all episodes of care.
Historically, addiction treatment in the U.S. has been separated from the rest of healthcare, addressed in physically and organizationally distinct institutions, often without medical providers.9 Although policy changes have encouraged integration,10 persistent silos may create barriers to making referrals for AUD. These barriers are compounded by privacy protections specific to addiction treatment that can hamper information exchange across institutions.9,11 In addition, financial hurdles have been reduced but not eliminated,12 despite legal changes requiring insurance payment parity for alcohol and other substance use disorders.10
The strategies described below may facilitate referrals. First, you can identify patients who might benefit from referral by using structured tools such as a brief alcohol screener and an AUD symptom checklist. (See Core article on screening and assessment.) Then, in discussing referral, it may be helpful to:
At the health system level, steps to support referral may aim for integration of addiction treatment, including basic coordination of services, co-location of services, or even fully integrated teams. As a first step in coordination, affiliation or service agreements can standardize referrals and facilitate information exchange across institutions in ways consistent with privacy regulations.20 Regarding co-location of services, recent studies with hospital patients have demonstrated improved referral completion when SBIRT was performed on-site by specialists who were on staff or from a local substance use treatment center.21,22 Some U.S. grant-funded SBIRT programs have moved towards fully integrated teams using specialized staff to perform SBIRT.23
