Improving referral quality

Question
How can I attract the highest quality of referrals possible? 
Answer
First, of course, is that you have to be worthy of a qualify referral. That requires you to demonstrate your worthiness to your network members, so they feel comfortable referring you to their friends and customers.

Next, you have to educating your referral sources. To get the highest quality referrals, you’ll have to work with your referral sources about how you would like them to refer you, including giving them some ideas on how to talk about you and your business.

Keep in mind that you’ll want to begin providing others the highest quality referrals, as well.
