Getting new customers in the ground transportation space is hard. Many of us have been in the chauffeured industry for years and have tried everything from SEO to Google Marketing to Facebook and Instagram ads.

After talking to many limousine and black car operators in the transportation industry, there was one overlooked practice that when used, has worked the best: Referrals.

A referral is when you reach out to your existing customers or network to ask around if they have any friends or colleagues that need transportation services. What you will find is that people are usually very open to helping out small business, especially during the pandemic.

One thing that works very well is adding an incentive to your referral campaigns. For example, you could offer an Amazon Gift Card, or even better, offer a discount on a future ride. That way you encourage your existing customer to book with you again in the future. Below is an example of a very easy process, where both parties are incentivized:
