Add mid level client to linked in and then build referral base?
I can appreciate not trying this with your top clients, but has anyone invited say a C client to linked-in
and once the client accepts you into their "network",
then asked permission to call all of their contacts?
Seems like you could meet a ton of people especially if they have many contacts, like a realtor etc.?
I think you're fine to do so. I would recommend a couple changes. I would not call all of their contacts. Once you've added them, look through who you know and choose the top 2 or 3 people you want to meet. Let your client know that you saw they knew John Doe, and you've been interested in meeting him for a while. Is there a way the 3 of you could grab coffee. Let them set it up. I have done this with a few of my clients, don't limit yourself to your C clients, or you'll get more C clients. Birds of a feather flock together.
