Here is some referral thank you letter samples you can utilize to help with your own wording.
When someone refers another person to your business or service, it is a testimonial to your value and an implicit recommendation. Returning this kindness with a thank you note will help solidify the relationship and encourage more referrals in the future.
Dos and Don’ts
|Be gracious and kind||Explicitly ask for more referrals|
|Offer something of value if appropriate (discounts, re-referrals)|
Asking for additional referrals in your thank you note is tacky. By simply expressing your gratitude, you are already encouraging future recommendations.
Referral From a Customer Dear John, I can't thank you enough for referring Jeff to my massage practice. That was very kind of you. I'm so glad I've been able to help you over the past few months, and I look forward to providing the same care to your friend. I really appreciate it a lot. I need referrals to grow my business, and I'm glad that you enjoyed your experience enough to recommend your friend. I look forward to seeing you soon. The next session is on the house. :) Sincerely, Charles
Referral From a Another Business Dear Susan, Our newest client was referred to us by your firm. Thanks so much for the lead. We believe we can provide them with a lot of value. I'm so glad you thought of us. It would be a pleasure to be able to repay this favor to you soon. Later this month, I will be attending a networking event, and if someone is looking for an outsourcing solution, I will be sure to recommend you. Thank you again, Susan. Thank you so much. Warmly, Carol
