Roger, I say call again. My insecure inner voice says don't bug people, but my brain says do you want their business or not?
3 strikes and out!
I want to hear 'NO'.
Roger D. Mucci I always make 1 return call afte rthe initial call. usually 2-3 days after the first. Then if i have an email i try that and then i am done. SOme consumers need that extra reminder, while other may not be serious
From all the seminars I've attended, they say to NEVER stop calling. That's not part of my DNA so I leave another message, text, email. If no response after that...I stop!
I call the next day and the next then every other day for the next couple of calls.
After a week, I will still call again. You never know what is going on with people. Maybe they went out of town, or something else came up.
Nope, I keep in touch whether I hear back or not. I will leave messages, text, email, snail mail and start over again.
I usually make 2 or 3 calls. It is better that they know you are interested rather than make one call, and maybe they missed it.
I always call at least twice and most of the time 3 times. If it is a cell I will also text. Then if I don't hear I assume they are not interested.
Roger, I usually try again within 24-hours and then if I don't hear from them, well, moving right along! Except for sometimes when I make subsequent calls but don't leave messages.
I always heard the magic number was 8 but after 3 or 4 calls, I've been known to give up.
Don't assume anything. Make another call for the best results.
One more time before giving up Roger.
It depends on the circumstances, and yes, I would call again. They may have gone another way, and they may had life intrude on their plans. A
I have always been the one to not call again but the argument to call again has convinced me that I give up to easy. Back to the phone I go.
Roger, for whatever reason, some people just don't return calls. I will call again and/or text until I am told they are no longer interested.
One More Time For The Gipper.
I would call again, I have been known to accidentally delete a message, Roger.
We call again until at least the 6th try. Statistically I believe the 5th try is the magic number when you will convert a lead. After the 5th try, we simply put them on a drip campaign and move on to the next.
I call again. And again. And again. I've closed too many deals long after a failed initial contact to just assume someone isn't interested. I've had people apologize for the lack of receptiveness and cite family troubles, a crazy schedule, etc, and want to move forward with a new loan.
I will generally follow up a few times (and I note the dates I call so that I'm not stalking). After I don't reach them, I will put some of them on my card list, and they'll get a card once a month for a while (this has helped close a few more). The cards are not "are you ready?" etc but rather cards about decorating, flooring, useful tips for the home.
Best to refresh their memory with a call.
