Some folks enjoy cold calls. Some folks don’t. If the idea of calling or calling on someone you don’t know is uncomfortable you might want to consider doing business by referral. Placing a call to someone who has been introduced to you and your service or product by a friend or associate is often the most productive use of your time since the recipient of the call is more receptive to your product, service or ideas.

Joining an organization such as BNI, Business Networking International, gives you access not just to the members, but also to the friends and contacts of those members. You, as a business owner or business representative add value to your friends and associates since you now have a more extensive network of business and service providers which can help them out. When someone asks me about a plumbing problem, I tell them to call Chris Sandmoen with Benjamin Franklin Plumbing www.benfranklinplumbing.com . Chris and his associates, who I met through BNI, have successfully performed several plumbing repair jobs on my house and we have extremely pleased with the work and the price. I make an impression on my clients when they are looking for a plumbing expert and I can provide them with one.

Everyone has played the six degrees of Kevin Bacon, the game where you try to link one movie star to another movie star within six relationships or less. The same game applies in business. If you want to know who is the head of HR at ACME Dynamite company and how to get an introduction, wouldn’t it be great to have a forum to ask? Not only is it ok, but it is expected that you are looking for those kind of introductions.

If everyone knows 200-500 people, imagine the possibilities of joining an organized referral group where business leaders proactively promote each other’s businesses to their sphere. Picture the range of influence of a large group of allies who each know 200 to 500 people and who are on your side.
