This book is even more of a necessity today and Tim nails it!”

huge moneymaking power of a top-notch referral system is one of the last great untapped ‘secrets' in business. Don't believe me? When was the last time a company you really liked asked you for a referral?
With this book Templeton has done us all a huge favor by turning on the lightbulb and showing us
exactly how to cash in. 
It's a total game changer. Now it's up to us to slap our forehead, wonder how much more money we could have been making—and then ‘sin no more!'”

The Referral of a Lifetime, takes all the sweat, tears, and frustration out of that. Here you have a step-by-step system to create the dream—a continuous flow of referrals!
I found the five combinations to unlock those referrals a fantastic process to get the whole system going. I was reminded of the importance of online reviews and his very simple Relationship Development Program.
Normally I find the appendices of books to be somewhat useless, but Tim's appendix is a treasure. There you have outlined a complete plan to implement the excellent system.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone, whether you are starting out or a more seasoned campaigner like me. It is a treasure trove of great, practical, and implementable strategies.”

The Referral of a Lifetime. I read the first edition years ago and used it successfully to train my entire sales organization. Now a bestselling author and owner of a marketing firm, I find Templeton's methods are more important than ever! This revised and expanded edition takes what was already wonderful and makes it perfect—the perfect combination of the latest and best strategies with those that are timeless. I will be giving this book to all of my clients!”
