THE POWER OF REFERRALS

• Only 1 out of 10 cold calls becomes a lead/prospect.
• Of that 10%, the average close rate is only 1 out of 4.
• Contrast those stats with Referrals from business associates: your close rate becomes 50% or greater.

Work smarter, not harder. That’s why you want to become a Salem Star Referrals member.

In 2018, Salem Star Referrals generated $594,007 in products and services. We know because we track it!
