    That is well put together. The word of the mouth has always been the best marketing technique.

    Agreed - referrals are SO the way to go. Essentially the whole current social media marketing buzz is based on this concept - it's being called "social proof" currently - haha!
    Another version of this that I'm setting up is paying (commission) referrals. I network with other business people who service the same type of clients as me, and pay them a percentage of any contract's signed - awesome!
