How to get more business for free!

Last week I sent an intimately personal email to my close circle of influence that included friends and Clients. This week I chose to reiterate my request by sending a new email almost identical to the first one with only a few minor additions and here is that email;

I addressed each email individually to the persons name and sent them one at a time with a better result to...


Hello Matt,

I sent you this same forward friendly email last week where I thanked you in advance for your willingness to refer me to others who may need my services! I want to stay fresh in the minds of my close business associates and friends in the event they see the opportunity to refer me to others. As you already know I can offer anyone you know and refer me to a-la-carte or turnkey services that will help them quantum leap their business, project or venture.

Please forward this email to anyone who may have a need for my services!

I am happy to dialog with anyone who has a need and I can give a pricing quote based on their needs individually. I deeply appreciate your time and kindness in forwarding this email to others within your circles of influence!

I look forward to being of service however before I close I realize that; a. it takes time to forward this email and b. that you may not want to introduce me to everyone you know however my reply is that I am asking you to do this for me because you are my Client and/or Friend and I will gladly do the same for you upon request. It is the “intimate efforts” that you are capable of when referring me that will make all the difference in the world and what better way to become an option to new Clients than to be introduced by a Client and/or Friend who knows me? I believe that what we do each day comes back to us multiplied and therefor I work to put out as much good as I can. If you would like me to do the same for you just send me a forward friendly email and I will gladly forward it for you.

Have an incredible day!

Then my email had my signature with phone, email and url...


My diligence paid off because after this second request I received several immediate replies with an apology that they had not did as I had requested after receiving my first email. It is always a shot in the dark but there is no better way to gain new Clients than to be referred by existing Clients who know first hand the quality and benefit of your products and services.

This is what I do through both of my businesses;

As a business consultant, business plan, presentation and rfp writer, social media strategist and published author I have a vast amount of expertise and knowledge that will save my Clients time and money while helping them quantum leap their success! I can help any business, project or venture with a wide range of turnkey services delivered fast!
