If sales have slowed and you're scrambling for new customers, the fastest way to find them is to target past customers and ask them to refer you to their colleagues. Or, when relevant, let your nonbusiness acquaintances know what you do. Can you do business with someone at the gym or the PTA? You'll never know if you don't ask.
