The Program:

Buyers want to know they are making the right decision when hiring you. The best way to make them confident in their decision is to provide social proof — testimonials.

The easiest sale you can make make is when you receive a referral. Clients who are referred to you have a 70% higher chance of closing than a cold lead, so collecting referrals is the easiest way to close more business, right?

How often do you ask your customers for referrals? Do you have a standard process in place for collecting testimonials?

It’s a strange paradox: the most profitable questions we can ask in our business are also the ones that we fear to ask the most. Asking for referrals and testimonials can be smooth and easy, *if* you script and practice what to ask in advance.

By deciding on the precise moment in the customer journey when you will ask for referrals and testimonials, you can collect them like clockwork.

Caelan guides you through a simple process to collect referrals and testimonials, so you can gain more clients and elevate your reputation.
