Proven World Class Referral Marketing Strategist and Trainer

When you provide a service that every business needs, yet very few people understand or know exists, referrals are extremely important. I’ve attended countless networking events over the years and found most of them disappointing. People focused on selling their services and products; talking at each other and totally missing the point of networking.

Impressed with Michael Griffiths’ Referral Marketing LinkedIn posts, I decided to take up his invitation to attend his Referral Madness networking events in North Sydney last year. What I found was a network of businesses that understood the importance of building relationships and building trust before sales, and the importance of helping other businesses to achieve success.

This year Michael brought together more than a dozen like minded businesses. With his guidance the group has generated far more valuable referrals than I had previously been able to through other networks. We have build some great JV’s and strategic alliance.

As a profiler, it didn’t take me long to work out that Michael is passionate and genuine about helping businesses to grow. To me, Michael has proven himself as a world class referral marketing strategist and trainer. I would recommend that you grab the opportunity to talk to Michael and see where he can help you take your business too.

A Very Worthwhile Investment Of My Time

Referrals are the best value business development tool for attracting and securing new clients, and whilst I was getting a lot of repeat business and referrals from existing clients I was not getting as many as I wanted from my business contacts.  I heard about the Referral Marketing course directly from Michael who was already in my network and it seemed a very worthwhile investment of my time.  The course itself was incredibly interactive and practical, giving clear and useful actions that could be effected swiftly. It was also full of likeminded people who were potential referral partners.  Subsequent to the course I have implemented a number of initiatives, secured at least 4 more very valuable referral partners and have a roadmap to significantly increase and improve my business development outcomes.  I would be happy to provide more information and feedback to anyone considering booking into the program, although it should be a no brainer, particularly for those in professional services looking to build the quality and effectiveness of their referrals.

It’s The Results That Count

I've always considered myself a strong networker and someone who connects others. My businesses have always relied on strong referrals and testimonials from others but the majority of new business had come from research, cold-calling and pure marketing of product and services. I've also had success with SEO, SEM and affiliations and deem this to be an important part of acquiring business although it wasn't enough. I wanted to gain more control and be pro-active in acquiring business. Michael Griffiths from The Referral Marketing Guru was referred through to me from trusted business associates. Like them, I understand that referrals are Gold and I've seen their success utilising this path. So, I needed to know more. I jumped at the opportunity to learn the ropes and get down to the fundamentals of Referral Marketing. It was something no-one else had provided and I wanted the success my business associates were having. I was provided with great information, A-ha moments and ideas, processes and activities that I can realistically adhere to in my every-day activities. It also enabled me to think outside my current environment and contacts and therefore enhance and develop my ventures much, much further and in a shorter period of time. But, it's the results that count. Since completing the course, I've made new contacts and developed strong associations with like-minded business contacts. I've put these new tools into use and have seen a dramatic increase in my revenue forecast. More importantly, I've had immediate results and these came from areas I didn't even think of prior.  Thanks Michael. I have the confidence to refer you to anyone and everyone looking to enhance their business. Adam Halen - House Man

I Was Unsure How Best To Tap Into My Own and Others Networks To Grow Referrals

Prior to attending Michael's Referral Marketing course I was unsure how best to tap in to my own and others networks to grow referrals for my business. I connected with Michael after he visited my BNI chapter and he immediately connected me with two business owners that had done the course so I could see the difference it was making for them. The framework, activities and habits Michael teaches are far more than 'just common sense' - they are a whole new approach to growing referrals. The impact of the course's networking component alone had an immediate effect on my results - both for myself and for others with whom I share referrals. I highly recommend anyone genuinely motivated to grow their business through more, better quality referrals to listen to Michael. He can give you clarity, new networking techniques and most importantly, a proven plan of action to get more referrals. Giles White - Director Whiteclick

I Was Really Impressed With The Structure

While I find it fairly easy to network with other business owners, I always struggled to generate business through these networks. I heard how good Michael's course was through other people in my BNI network so I decided to give it a try. I was really impressed with the structure and thinking behind Michael's system, and the fact that you can start implementing it staright away during the course itself. I found it inspirational and practical and - although I only finished the course 48 hours ago - I'm already starting to use the techniques and processes he recommends to build my connections in a way that will generate more business.

I Learnt The Value Of Referral Partnering

As a start up business I needed to find a marketing specialist that could provide me with the marketing tools I needs to enable me to get the right clients and keep them.
I had the opportunity to meet with Michael Griffiths - owner of "Referral Marketing Guru" - as I recognised that his unique marketing tools would be ideal for my business.
I decided to attend his 2 day course and I was blown away by the detail, the passion and the strength and ease of use displayed during this course.
I learnt the value of referral partnering and how this is a two way street of trust that then expands out into credible and profitable referral partners.
I achieved the confidence of knowing how to implement and grow my business using these techniques, knowing I have the ability to succeed and helping others to succeed as well. Judith Harris - Risk Insurance - Strategic Specialist

I Will Never Have To Make A Cold Call Again

As an entrepreneur and running multiple companies, I’ve always understood the power of networks, but never really knew how to get the most of them consistently. After meeting Michael and hearing glowing reviews from previous attendees on his course, I decided to do something about it and improve my knowledge and situation. In just 2 days of doing his referral marketing course, I had new ideas, proven processes and a well laid out strategy at my finger-tips. Less than a week after completion and by putting a lot of the things I learned into action, my referrals TRIPLED. And this is just the beginning... Michael teaches you the EASY way to gain business, network effectively and build lasting win/win business relationships that will produce boat loads of quality referrals. Not only that, it has seriously opened up my eyes to new and more effective ways of marketing that will generate better returns on my time. I will never have to make a cold call again! 2014 is shaping up to be a fantastic year for my businesses & expanding network and I have Michael Griffiths to thank for it! Thanks Michael!

The Strategies On How To Implement A “Proper” Referral Marketing Program Was Priceless

I thought I knew a bit about referral marketing!  However, it was lacking structure and consistency. I was receiving a handful of referrals each month, but not qualified and not the right ones. I had known Michael for close to twelve months, but not personally, just kept hearing a lot about him and what he was doing for others in their businesses in relations to referral marketing. I knew something had to change! Hence I made the decision to attend his Referral Marketing course and things haven't been the same since. In just the first 3hours of the course we found 25 referrals for only 6 of the attendees. Incredible! The strategies on how to implement a "proper" referral marketing program was priceless. The program was totally experiential and we were immersed in "doing" rather than just reading and listening. From how to work with your referral partners at networking events; to fine tuning your pitch; the strategies were endless and priceless. The other attendees were on a similar wave-length to which we have already created strong referral partnerships and creating business for one another within 2 days of completing the course! I now have a structure and consistency has been "king". I am now crystal clear on the specific types of referrals and how to coach my referral partners to provide quality referrals. Thank you Michael for allowing me to learn your insights and be able to implement then immediately. Fantastic!! James Short - Owner Of Goals Tribe

Translates Into Bottom-Line Growth

"Although adept at build networks of friends, understanding how to build an equivalent referral network for my business was proving to be a slow process. Fortunately I heard about Michael's Referral Marketing course through a number of trusted associates and decided to explore it further. The two day course really assisted me to focus on the required aspects of generating and managing referrals, and gave me a system which has made it a simple and repeatable process. Thanks to the course, I have been able to bring order and visibility to my referral marketing strategies which can only translate into bottom-line growth." Scott Ward - Digital Infusions

A Must For Business Owners, Salesperson or BDM

Coming from an Account Management background I pride myself on building strong relationships. I’d received a few referrals now and then, but they certainly didn’t walk through the door on a regular basis. I thought I knew what networking was about. As way of introduction, I noticed that a few of the members presented a question rather than lead off with their name like most of us would do. This was a powerful way to engage the audience and have them quickly relate to a need. As I discovered these people had attended Michael Griffith’s Referral Marketing Course. I wanted to learn more…  I’ll never look at LinkedIn or networking events in the same way again! Amongst other things, the course provided me with a structure and templates to use for building a referral system, relevant for business or for me as a professional. It showed me how to build my network and how to become more visible, credible and profitable. It taught me how to build referral partners (a concept I’d not considered previously) and how to train them so that they know how to support me with referrals each week. Essentially, I learnt it’s about give, not take and that sits well with me. The more I have to give to my referral partners, the more I can expect to receive. This course is a must do for anyone who is a business owner, salesperson, BDM that works in professional services or even those hoping to use networking to find their next challenge. Louise Thyler

The Course Exceeded My Expectations

I was placed in a new position in the company and needed guidance on how fulfill my role to the best of my ability. I saw Michael speak at a marketing workshop called Networx and knew he would be the best person to help me and get results. The course exceeded my expectations. Michael not only imparts knowledge and advice, he provides a detailed framework and strategy to implement to get your off to a flying start. It has revolutionised the way I do business. The results have been immediate and the network I have been introduced to has been invaluable. Lisa Porter - Eat, Fit, Food

I Was Not Overly Confident When Attending Networking Events

"Although I consider myself to be an outgoing person, I was not overly confident when attending Networking events and felt I was missing out on opportunities through my inexperience connecting with others . After hearing about Michael's course through people who had attended his course, I decided to undertake the course to improve my skills and confidence so that I could more effectively connect with others who would be in the position to help me grow my business further.

After taking the course I feel more confident, especially with the skills I have developed through strategies and role play. Most importantly I have learned more about myself, which was vital in order for me to develop a structured referral program as part of those strategies.

I have already started to see the benefits of utilising referrals partners and over the last week, solely through referrals received from networking partners, I have taken up 3 new clients and just as importantly, I have been able to refer business on to some of my networking contacts as well."  Alee Cochrane - Total Book Keeping and Business Solutions

The Process Is Simple To Implement

For the last while I have been trying to figure out how to unlock the value of my extensive network. I have been fumbling with activity at weekly meetings, Linkedin, CRM database etc. to get referral business. I knew that there was massive value that could be unlocked if only I knew how. I had heard of Michael's Referral Marketing training and thought that I could not afford the interruption. Michael said to me "I know you will benefit Paul so trust me and take the time out to learn!" I decided to take the time out to attend the course and it turns out that I could not afford not to attend, if you know what I mean? After spending two days, I am amazed at how simple yet effective strategies have been waiting for me to discover and unlock the hidden value. The process is simple to implement and I am looking forward to making positive changes to get more referrals from my network.

Within The First Week I Instantly Noticed That My Network Broadened Significantly

Prior to doing Michael’s course I found that I was averaging one qualified referral a week. I had the capacity to receive three or four referrals a week, but I just didn’t know where or how to get them. A number of my business owners in my network had completed Michael’s course and were raving about how it has changed their business, so of course I wanted the same for my business. This course opened my eyes to so many possibilities and showed me that it is really quite simple to form profitable referral relationships, with a simple monitored strategy which I follow on a daily basis. By implementing ‘the points’ strategy and following it like clock-work, within the first week I instantly noticed that my network broadened significantly and I was being contacted by business owners / referral partners who wanted to do business with and refer clients to me. I can’t recommend this course highly enough! For anyone ready to grow their business and referrals fast, this course should be the first thing on your to do list."

Our Business Is Gaining Visibility and We Are Building Credibility Day by Day

The training Michael provides is extensive not just in Social Media but networking, building strong, meaningful and profitable Referral Partnerships which is what our business is all about - face to face. Our business is gaining visibility and we are building credibility day by day due to the services that Michael is providing our Company.

I Can Apply Simple Steps To Generate As Many Referrals As I Need

I was struggling to figure out how I was going to get more leads coming through our doors without having to spend thousands upon thousands of dollars on marketing.
Then sitting at a lunch meeting (Michael was the guest speaker) I listened to Michael talk about how I can generate more referrals and needed to know more!  I maintained contact with Michael and heard a lot of great things about his course form others. I then made a decision to sign up and attend his course.  After attending his course I have learnt that spending thousands of dollars is not the only way to go about generating leads for my business. I can apply some simple steps to generate as many referrals as i need and want.  Working with Michael has opened my eyes to the endless possibilities that a powerful network can create, not only in business but in all areas of life.  Michael has been a great motivator for myself and employees.

One Of The Best Courses That I Have Ever Attended

A couple of months ago I attended Michael's two day "Referral Marketing Course", it is one of the best courses that I have ever attended. It changed my whole perspective on the way networking should be done, the type of questions that you should ask and provided the skills to implement systems to ensure a constant flow of referrals. The course was very structured by providing you with a step by step guide on how to build your networks and referral partners. This system will allow you to grow your business by allowing you to "turn on a tap" of constant referrals which you can control. What I particularly liked about the course was there were ample opportunities to practice these new skills with your fellow classmates and perfect your networking skills. It is very apparent from the course that Michael loves what he does, practices what he preaches and wants your business to succeed and grow by implementing the knowledge and skills you learnt from his course, nothing would please him more!!! I would highly recommend Michael's course to anyone that wants to grow their business. Jace Pearson - Terralinks

A couple of months ago I attended Michael's two day "Referral Marketing Course", it is one of the best courses that I have ever attended. It changed my whole perspective on the way networking should be done, the type of questions that you should ask and provided the skills to implement systems to ensure a constant flow of referrals. The course was very structured by providing you with a step by step guide on how to build your networks and referral partners.

These 2 Days Have Been A Great Investment In Myself and My Business

Being a hands-on business owner, I often found it difficult to find time to get out and promote my business, attending networking events with not as much return on my time as I would like. I was referred to Michael and introduced to his Referral Marketing 2 day course to learn how to increase the referrals into my business. These 2 days have been a great investment in myself and my business, leaving the course already having implemented strategies to increase those all important referrals. I am already seeing the benefits. I thoroughly recommend Michael's course to anyone looking to build their business. Penny Ransby - Bench Creative Design Studio

Expert In Networking & Referral Marketing

Upon first meeting Michael through a mutual acquaintance, it was apparent that he had great expertise in the area of networking and referral marketing. His many years of experience in that field along with many success stories are a credit to his breadth of knowledge. Since that time, I have worked with Michael and also engaged in one of his referral marketing courses. Those interactions have allowed me to understand the benefits of building strong relationships with key partners and also in becoming more effective in networking and marketing endeavours. I look forward to continued development of these strategies that play an integral part of my business. Melanie Cunliffe - Indigo Finance

A Mixture Of ‘Aha’ Moments, ‘WOW’ Moments and Kick Up The Butt Moments

After more than a decade of building a huge following online, the yield for the investment in both time and money was very low. The types of referrals I would receive were either unqualified (so I spent time qualifying them), qualified but ill-informed about what I do (so I spent time walking them through the basics instead of starting the conversation at a higher level), or they were not leads for me at all. Never too shy to admit that an old dog can learn new techniques, when the opportunity came along to attend the Referral Marketing Guru workshop I totally jumped at it. I had known Michael for a couple of years and I have a lot of respect for what he has achieved in the marketing space with previous businesses. Given this and knowing his wider reputation, I was confident that the two day workshop would be packed full of practical advice, actual doing, and learning how to do referral marketing better instead of just learning what to do. Needless to say I had high expectations and Michael totally over-delivered. For me personally there were a mixture of ‘Aha!’ moments, ‘Wow!’ moments, kick up the butt reminders of what I should respectively shouldn’t do (thanks Michael I especially needed those) and a chest full of new practical tools, tips and techniques to actually implement immediately to achieve greater leverage and generate more warm to very hot leads. Since completing the Referral Marketing Guru workshop I have noticed that I am receiving better quality referrals more referrals over all. Based on the trend since the workshop, I expect that in six months our lead-source segmented pipeline report for closed-won deals will show both a significant increase in revenue and a huge bias toward referral based business over all other marketing channels. I highly recommend Michael’s Referral Marketing Guru workshop to everybody and am happy to verify this recommendation by phone. Paul Lange, Chairman at CleverX Blue Ocean Business Incubators

I Can’t Recommend Michael Highly Enough

Michael first worked with myself and Juncture IT 8 months ago as a marketing consultant where he successfully implemented a marketing strategy using social media and key online media such as Google. As his role shifted into that of The Referral Marketing Guru, Michael once again assisted Juncture IT into putting into place a Referral Marketing strategy that has been key in identifying referral sources and leveraging them to benefit the partners involve. I can’t recommend Michael’s services highly enough. In the current business environment you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t enlist his advice to help you to identify every opportunity that is available amongst your networks. Gobind Chera – Sales Manager Juncture IT

This Completely Changed Our Business

We have always built our business through referrals, it has always taken a long time and quite often we took 1 step forward and then 2 steps back. After working with Michael it completely changed the way we looked at referral partners and what we should be doing to motivate our referral sources. It was so simple to implement and the results started showing through nearly instantly. We will soon be at a point where our main referral sources will provide us with an endless supply of qualified leads. This content and system is really amazing and Michael ensures that you get the results you are after. Danielle Wood – Commercial Solicitor, Wood & Associates, Melbourne

I Couldn’t Recommend This Course Highly Enough

I thought I was a pretty good networker, I went to 3 or 4 events per month and was part of a BNI group as well so I didn’t know what I was going to get out of the course. By ½ way through the first day I had received more value, more ideas and more of knowing what I should be doing than what I could have ever imagined. I realized how much time I was wasting and the pointless activities that I had been doing thinking that I was on the right track. This course put a system into my business and straight away it had an effect with 6 referrals only 2 weeks on. Michael really is the Referral Marketing Guru and I couldn’t recommend this course high enough. James Lange – Real Estate Agent, Bresic Whitney
