Why Referrals Don’t Happen

Personal referrals are one of the most sought after forms of advertising by businesses. Why is it then that it may not be as prevalent as we believe?

Seth Godin has an interesting take on why it doesn’t happen as much as we think.

Seth has one of the highest rated blogs on the internet and is a very successful internet marketer. If you look at his blog it has no fancy header or a lot of nice photos or graphs. Some days it is very short and usually nothing to download. I find it fascinating and full of insightful information.

This article. “The Selfish Truth About Word of Mouth(Why Referrals Don’t Happen)”is well worth the two or three minutes it takes to read it. You will even find out how to get more referrals.

An article by David Fallarme that will show you how to give your blog traffic a boost! Here are a few quotes from his article :

“As a marketer, you’ve likely heard about how great blogging and content marketing is for driving leads and results. So you dive right in: you work hard, brainstorming and writing article after article, hoping that it has some effect, that it’ll move some needle somewhere.

Content marketing can be hard. It takes time and you might make a lot of mistakes along the way.

The good news: You get to learn from those mistakes and improve your content and your strategies.

One of the key lessons I learned early on was the benefit of using frameworks to guide your content marketing strategy. I’d love to share my experience and strategies with you to give you a leg up in the content marketing game.”

There are four frameworks that David explains in detail that will help give your blog traffic a boost. They are:

“1. The Spaghetti Blogging Framework”

“2. The Skyscraper Technique”

“3. The Hedgehog Concept”

“4. Tofu-Mofu-Bofu”
If  you have been finding it difficult getting leads  and  results I urge you to read David’s  Article HERE  and  give your blog traffic a boost.
