I have finally got things off and running with my REI career. As i stated in my previous post, I got my 800# and ordered 100 bandit signs. Well that turned out to be a blessing for me in it self. The guy i ordered the signs from needed a website developed and since that is my background for the past 15 years, we decided to do a barter. I developed a website for him in exchange for 200 bandit signs free of charge. Boy was I excited about this. Instead of 100 signs, I got 200 signs absolutely free. God is good! After waiting a few weeks for everything to transpire with the barter, I finally got my signs and i put out my first run of 25 signs targeting two subdivisions in my local area.
This is where i loose focus and need guidance. I have gotten about 8 calls on my 800 number and they all were hangups. No one called and listen to the message long enough to even get to my contact information at the end of the message. I dont know what to do to ensure that i get a good response rate. Is this normal for the amount of signs i put out my first time around? I plan on putting out more signs on thursday night. Dean recommends that you put your signs out thursday evening for the best result.
I dont know if my recording of the stop foreclosure script is up to par. Im wondering if I should modify it or let it stay as is for a little while longer? I would love for someone with experience to listen to it and give me your honest feedback. If you would be interested in doing so, please let me know and i will get you the number.
My other question is, what should i do in the mean time while the AFF sorts, sifts and screens the calls for me?
Atlanta is so saturated with bandit signs on every corner, i think my signs are getting lost in the shuffle of which one to call. I am seriously considering looking into another area to market.
I dont want to get discouraged and loose hope. Any advise would be helpful...
thanks for all your feedback.
