Word of mouth. It’s what powers businesses.


Word of mouth serves as the oldest marketing medium of all – yet despite its age, it continues to become an ever more compelling tool for gaining new clients, and winning new business.

Consider these statistics…

“84% of consumers say they either completely or somewhat trust recommendations from family, colleagues, and friends about products and services”

- Nielsen

“91% of B2B buyers are influenced by word-of-mouth when making their buying decision”.


“Word-of-mouth has been shown to improve marketing effectiveness by up to 54%”.

- MarketShare

It makes crystal clear business sense to nurture word of mouth referrals – which is why we’ve created a referral scheme that will help us do exactly that. Here’s how it works…

Happy with our services?

That’s exactly what we love to hear – and as you’ve been impressed, we’d also love for you to pass our details along. As a thank you, we’ll pay you £100 for every client who chooses Robert Lewis Accountants.

We’ve won awards for our approach and gained national attention for the rate at which we’ve grown. We likely spread the word about our business in many of the same ways that you do yours.

Yet above all else, it is word of mouth that is behind much of our growth

For every friend, associate or colleague that you refer to us, we’ll give you £100 as soon as they become our client. We’ll treat them with the same exceptional level of service you’ve come to know us for – we don’t pressurise nor quote and oblige them to use our services. We simply explain all that we do – all that we stand for – and all that we can achieve for their business.

It’s simple. Just provide our team with the details and we’ll be in touch to introduce ourselves

Referring a potential client to us couldn’t be easier or quicker. Just contact us over the phone or by email and provide the relevant contact details. We’ll then introduce ourselves via email or during a call – explaining exactly how we could help, and why our services go beyond traditional accounting.
