When Good Clients Refer Bad Prospects to You…. Do This

One of the best ways to get new clients is through referrals from your existing clients. They tend to be similar to the clients you have, which means they’re probably a good fit for you. It’s very gratifying to hear a referral client say, “Your client told me about how awesome your writing is and how great it is to work with you, so I want us to work together too.”
