How to ask for referrals

July 19, 2022

In many European countries, freelancers are not really used to asking clients for referrals to other people who may use their service. In the USA, however, it is way more common and we can easily get inspired. The article titled 3 Stress-Free Ways to Ask Clients for a Referral outlines the essential good practice:

  1. Choose the right timing — for example, after (successfully) finishing a project, when renewing a contract, or after receiving positive feedback
  2. Be direct and specific — don’t leave the client confused what you want
  3. Make it easy — possibly building the referral request into a standard operating procedure
