NH is destination for many workers looking for good high paying jobs. For me being on Active Rain, has garnered me more exposure to show agents from all over what i can do. I take great care of those they refer and i can say it sure beats paying for any service.

Connect with people in different communities, like Active Rain and/or if you have designations like CRS, ABR, SRS, ect., connect with people in those communities.  Active Rain really has people from all over so it's a great place to network and connect with people and they also have a referral network (check out the footer at the bottom of the page under Explore Active Rain: Referral Network).

Referrals are born of trust.

Trust comes from your reputation as a giver first.

Your Competence and character always.

Referral relationships take time, I'd say 6-12 months is the average for our industry inside networking groups. I've run multiple groups over the years for BNI, Chamber of Commerce, Buffini & Co, etc. I've watched the good the bad and the ugly of networking over my 25 years of network with purpose.

We are in a people business and connecting with agents through social media, and writing blogs and participating in different forums and platforms like ActiveRain so we can be transparent and show who we are and build relationships ... it will happen!  I especially enjoyed reading all of the responses from other AR's ... opens up our perspective.

 Barbara Todaro has a great answer!  I attend conferences and other AR member gatherings and have met a ton of members over the years.  I also am on the heavy side of listings (vs. buyers) so, I send out a lot of referrals and others reciprocate. So, I have relationships with a good number of agents here in the Rain.

I also think being respectful and helpful to others here is important - I believe that speaks volumes to others as to one's work ethic (and personality).

 I keep sending my referalls to other cities.  Some agents are not taking seriously as one client told me she called back stating she was too busy for my clients..... One responded she only handle estates and will not refer to her team member.....
