We love visitors! Visit any of our successful Michigan referral teams FOR FREE to see if we can help YOU sell more locally by referral. And don’t worry, nobody will pressure you to join. Just bring a stack of business cards with you so everyone at the meeting can have one.
While we have helped thousands of Michigan small business professionals grow by referral over the past 10 years, we know face-to-face and reputation marketing isn’t for everyone. You are welcomed to visit any of our Facilitated referral teams to experience a fast-paced 1HR meeting! By attending a meeting, you’ll have a much better idea of how and why our system works and if it might be a good fit for you join as a Member and grow your local business by referrals.
A BRIEF HISTORY: The Caerusnet Facilitated Referral Team System was developed in 2008 by social entrepreneur, Steven Zyskowski, expressing his burning desire to help small business professionals and passionate networkers join and/or form their own referral passing groups that are both fun and profitable.
Every Caerusnet team is run by a Facilitator who is using the Caerusnet Referral Team System (CRTS) as their guiding principles. With instant, ongoing access to the Caerusnet federally copyrighted materials and know how, the Facilitator runs the meetings, delivers education to the team to help them Master the Art of Referrals, sets the meeting agenda and follows up with visitors. The Members are asked to learn how to consistently pass referrals and invite other professionals to visit the team.
Caerusnet has developed a series of guiding principles and commonly used strategies for growing referral teams and helping the local business community strengthen by referral. The Facilitator & the Members of any given team are partners working together to build a strong referral community. Members are never asked to be officers, chair special committees or attend additional required training. Facilitators also have virtually complete freedom to run their teams in a way they believe, based on their personal experiences, will make it successful.
If your business is like most, it depends on word-of-mouth referrals. Belonging to a facilitated referral team, like the ones pioneered at Caerusnet, can help you develop new business from sources that can be profitable now and for years to come. In fact, experts agree that being a part of an active referral passing team is essential to the success of most local business professionals.
Being a Member of a Caerusnet local, facilitated small business referral team is a wise investment of precious face to face marketing time. In fact, our Members have benefited by the referrals the Caerusnet system helps them produce. Our Members have already passed over tens of thousands of referrals!
