Self reliance, one of the touchstones of small business owners, is reflected in the second annual Make a Referral Week. It runs from March 8 through March 12 and the goal for the week is to generate 1000 referred leads to 1000 deserving small businesses. The simple action of making a referral can turn into thousands or even millions of dollars for a business, create jobs, and help improve the economy. The Refer-a-Meter will monitor the number of referrals made.
There are also daily educational programs and a seminar on March 10 at 1 pm ET that you can participate in for free. Learn from Ivan Misner, founder of BNI, Bob Burg, author of Endless Referrals, and Ben McConnell, co-author of Creating Customer Evangelists. Register here.
