If you're looking for referrals, who better to tap than your existing customers? Most likely, they know other people who share similar interests, needs and buying power. Generating referrals from current customers is one of the best ways to market your business.

Be sure, too, that you thank them, assure them of their privacy if that is a concern, and offer a coupon or small gift to show your appreciation.
