  • Truth or Delusion in Networking for Referrals

Recently I caught up with Ivan Misner, founder of BNI and author of a number of books on networking and referrals, including his most recent release – Truth or Delusion on the Duct Tape Marketing podcast.

Misner and I discussed a number of the myths and truths that commonly surround the practice of networking.

    For instance:

  • Truth or Delusion? People who like, care and respect you will refer business to you.
  • Truth or Delusion? Referral marketing is the safest form of advertising.
  • Truth or Delusion? If you provide good customer service, people will refer business to you

.

Misner is often called the “father of modern networking” and has much to offer on the topic.

If you are not familiar with BNI you might want to search for a chapter in your community. BNI has created over 3,000, industry exclusive referral groups. Chapters exist in most American cities and aournd the world. Find a chapter
