I’ve talked about using Email Marketing to Stimulate the Economy, but our friend John Jantsch over at Duct Tape Marketing is taking it to the next level for the second year in a row!

Make a Referral Week is an entrepreneurial approach to stimulating the small business economy one referred business at a time. The goal for the week is to generate 1000 referred leads to 1000 deserving small businesses in an effort to highlight the impact of a simple action that could blossom into millions of dollars in new business. Small business is the lifeblood and job-creating engine of the economy and merits the positive attention so often saved for corporate bailout stories.

You are invited to make at least one referral to a small business and visit www.MakeAReferralWeek.com to share the referral details, including information on why you referred a particular business. Each day during the week one referral story will be chosen as the “best referral of the day” and the referred business and referral source will each win a Referral Gift Prize featuring signed books from recognized referral experts.

The Refer-O-Meter will monitor the march towards 1000 referrals given throughout the week.

So what are you waiting for? Refer someone!
