Preston Killian, The Sales Evangelist, Asking for Referrals, Donald Kelly We all know that one of the greatest ways to grow our business is through referrals. The problem is, many of us as sellers never ask for them for one reason or another. In this episode, I interview Preston Killian who shares some of the struggles he faced early on growing his business. Preston has a business where he does bent repairs for car dealership in Texas.

Many of those he currently works with came through simply asking for referrals or doing such a good job that his customers offered him unsolicited referrals. Today, his business is growing significantly because of referrals. The question now comes down to this, “Are you taking advantage of the benefits of referrals?” Here is another episode that can help you ask for more referrals:


Preston’s words of encouragement: 

  1. Get up and just get out there
  2. Work hard
  3. Just ask for referrals
  4. Make sure to follow up with customers
