In the theme of "what comes around goes around" I've had a few such experiences. Recently I was contacted by a surgeon about bidding on a video. I asked him how he got my name, and he forwarded me a long thread which went something like this:


Hey Joe. Can you ask around about what vendor you use for surgical videos?


Sure, let me ask around.


Doc, I asked around, and here is what I found out:

Re: Video vendor

Joe, see below from Tim in marketing.

Bob Smith, Assistant to the Traveling Secretary


Re: Re: Preferred vendor

Bob, ask Mary Jones, Global Marketing Director.

Sarah Jane Smith, K-9 Industries


Bob, here's what I got from branding. Mary J. :)

So as you can see, ask enough people and your name might come up.

Incidentally, this word of mouth referral eventually resulted in a new paying client. Hooray.

Good clients are out there. Sometimes you find them, sometimes they find you, and sometimes they find you through a mutual acquaintance.

Do good work. Get more work. Repeat.
