We discussed that idea last year. I thought it was a good idea at first, but we couldn't see it working. The handful of other psychics we'd trust have prices comparable to Erin's or higher. Experienced psychics with low prices usually means they aren't very good, so they aren't generating much repeat business or referrals.
Erin's website (and mine) certainly helps fuel her bookings, but other top psychics have published books that generate a steady stream of clients for them, so they're in a similar situation.
Also Erin's focus is different from most psychic mediums. The bulk of her clients come to her for intuitive counseling. She helps people gain clarity to get their lives on the right track. Because of her skills she can help people solve problems in 30 minutes that might otherwise take weeks of therapy. She sees more demand for that vs. connecting with deceased relatives.
I don't see a referral system working, not if Erin had to vouch for the people she referred others too. It would be better for people to seek out cheaper services on their own -- or simply to do without.
Imagine if you were a doctor or a lawyer. Would you feel comfortable referring clients to someone who charged a lot less than you (and who probably was a lot less skilled/experienced)? You'd probably just send people to a general referral service rather than setting up a formal referral program that you had to attach your name to.
One psychic told me that his bookings increased this year due to the uncertainty of the economy and the election. He says that when there's a lot of uncertainty in the air, he sees an increase in bookings. Lisa Williams wrote in her book that her reading requests surged after 9/11.
