WRS is a membership organization. All of our Members are pre-screened and qualified and are required to uphold the principle of doing business honestly, honorably, ethically and with integrity. This is just one of the reasons WRS is set apart from the rest. Our members tell us more referrals are generated within the organization because Members can feel confident referring their valued clients, customers and loved ones to fellow WRS Members. As an approved Member of WRS, you have the opportunity to take advantage of any of our services and participate in any of our Networking Events. Please see below for additional information about the services we offer.

WRS Members can attend and network at any and all our events and are not restricted to any one chapter. These events are designed for those who want to create a steady stream of referrals and build a solid referral based business by networking with all WRS Members. While utilizing the 30+ year proven unique method of networking at all our networking events, Members are able to learn about the types of referrals they can send to each other and how to effectively listen for referral opportunities beyond the obvious. Anyone can give an easy referral, but at our events WRS Members hone their referral giving skills so when they hear someone in need of something, Members know how to be proactive and make the referral to another member. We have proven that if you create a system of support between Members and show them effective ways to generate referrals for each other, they will give referrals generously, willingly and often. And WRS Members do just that. Our Members tell us that this phenomenon is unparalleled by any other organization in Southern California.

WRS offers the opportunity to be visible in our two annual publications, the WRS Blue Book and the yellow WRS Referral Guide. WRS ensures that your name gets in front of consumers, company executives, corporations, non – profits, clients, and customers who are seriously seeking service providers they can trust. WRS Members distribute the directories to their circle of friends, family, associates, and clients. They are the tools Members use to refer business to each other. Additionally, these directories are distributed through our database of 600,000 business owners, and the yellow WRS Referral Guide is distributed through many independent bookstores. This visibility also augments your networking efforts and generates new business and new referrals for you when you can’t attend networking events. All advertisers must complete the WRS pre-approval application process and receive the WRS Seal of Approval. Click here for detailed information.

Who are you connected to through social media? Many business owners and professionals abandoned their traditional marketing strategies in the hopes that their social media platforms will be a quick, cheap, and easy way to generate new customers only to find that this very time consuming effort produced little or no paying customers. While the effectiveness of using social media platforms will never replace the effectiveness of the relationships you build via “live forums” where you can look someone in the eye, shake their hand and build trust, it can still be used as an effective tool as part of your marketing strategy IF implemented correctly. What social media platforms should do is point your prospective customers to your website and your website should inspire them to buy. If it is not doing this, perhaps a review of how you are positioning yourself on the Internet by someone who is skilled and qualified in this arena is necessary. As part of your Membership, WRS invites all WRS Members to join the WRS Facebook page, which is a private forum for only approved WRS Members. This is an opportunity for members to be connected to other pre-screened and qualified Members through social media. It also serves as an opportunity for WRS Members to network online with Members they may or may not know, depending on what networking events each Member attends. Lastly, there are special networking opportunities available for Members on Facebook that enhance WRS Member-to-Member referrals.
