A recent article, Get Off the Feast-and-Famine Treadmill by Deena Anreise says that as a professional service provider, your business is mostly dependent on referrals. Nevertheless, as you’re too busy working with your current clients, you find it really hard to encourage new referrals and nurture them to new business.
Here are three administrative tasks that you can delegate to your virtual assistant to help you generate and nurture referrals for your business continuous growth in Lake Mary Executive Office Space.
Find and maintain relevant networking events.
All you need to do is to decide whether or not the scheduled event is interesting to you. Once at the event, have fun and be pleasant to attract people around you. Don’t try to get a new client on the spot, but build a network of fans (solid connections) that will remember you when someone is in need of your services.
Remind you to follow up new contacts.
At a networking event you can make solid connections which can be potential business resources. For instance, you can take a snapshot of each business card that you’re handed at an event and send them to your virtual assistant for your CRM. On the following day, your virtual assistant in Lake Mary Coworking Office Space will remind you to follow up with these clients with a simple greeting to stay in touch that can lay the foundation for future referrals.
Your virtual assistant can help you maintain and nurture your contacts consistently. She/he can categorize your potential contacts in your CRM by their interests and affinity groups or can make a draft of several personal emails you can send each day or remind you of your appointments with your clients.
A virtual assistant is essential to do these recurring tasks so you can stay focused on the core of your business while increasing your referrals.
