Partner with Other Businesses to Generate Referrals

Many thanks to Daniel for the opportunity to speak about BNI. Referral marketing could truly benefit any professional's business and help diversify across industries. Below is an excerpt from our Q&A session and underneath that is the link to the MadPipe podcast. 

"Your marketing is too important to take on alone. One important step is getting a digital strategist like MadPipe. Generating referrals is about collaboration, trust, and commitment to a process. Jeff Nolan, residential real estate agent with Corcoran founded BNI 45 in Manhattan, a referral marketing group made up of other professionals in a diversity of industries. As president of that BNI chapter, “The Breakfast of Champions”, he has a vision for how to grow companies and increase the clientele of individual professionals. Daniel DiGriz, Director Strategy at MadPipe, asks Jeff how effective referral marketing works, what kinds of businesses can benefit, and how to navigate the commitments it requires. If you’re wanting more clientele with better return on your marketing investment and less competition to wrestle with, you owe it to yourself to listen to this podcast." ~Daniel DiGriz

The history of keys goes back for thousands of years, reaching the very first moments when modern human civilization established their reign and started developing sciences and technologies enabling the birth and growth of our present way of life. Even in those ancient times, people wanted the ability to safeguard their possessions and store them in places where nobody else could have access to them. 

For that purpose , engineers, designers and scientists created the first example of keys. Keys represent possession and when speaking about residential real estate, possession is 9/10ths of the law. You provide the keys to the buyer when selling and hopefully obtain a fair value in exchange, A more memorable experience is when you obtain the keys to your new home. We strive to be present in these joyful moments and ensure you maximize your investment. Call us today for a complimentary market evaluation.
