I was wondering how do you go about asking for referrals from people you network with? Most of my connections i have reached out to cold and for the most part usually have a 20-40min phone call with them asking about their experience and advice at firm X.
I am starting to run out of leads to contact and was wondering how you go about asking them for referrals. I feel kind of awkward asking someone who I only have had a brief phone call or email exchange with to refer me to other bankers.
Also is it appropriate to do so through emails? After following up?
