Hi, everybody. John Fischer. Welcome to salesleads.tv. Let’s talk about financial leads. You know, it’s a tough area for me. I’m gonna tell you why. Most financial planners…what they’re looking for is small territory. Their method of operation is to get in their car and go visit the customer, and see ‘em face-to-face. They’re kinda like face-to-face kinda guys. The problem is that I have, maybe, a total of 500,000 accredited investor leads that have been surveyed and mailed a private placement memorandum, 300,000 of what we call the Village Bike (been ridden by everybody); it’s the stuff you buy from my competitors, and I’m not slinging mud. I mean, it’s the Village Bike; they’re getting way too many phone calls. They’re being sold in Illinois…eight guys. They got the two guys in California. I mean those are the ones that when you call up, the guy says, ‘That’s the tenth phone call I got today. Don’t call here no more.’ Now, I’m not saying they’re all bad. And I used to not like selling ‘em, but now I sell ‘em for 7 and a half cents apiece, 50,000 to guys who have dialers; I sell 10,000 at 25¢. If you got a brand new guy, let him cut his teeth on those. I’m not saying you can’t write business off ‘em, but the PP Crème- the stuff that we sell- it’s a lot better results; they’re exclusive to my company, 95/ 90%, and the bottom line is they’re much, much better leads. But when you take those 300,000 out of the formula, and now there’s only 200,000 of my PP Crème- the stuff that I think is like the top-notch stuff. And then you say to me, ‘Hey, I only wanted it certain zip codes’, let alone you say ‘I only want one area code.’ And then you get a SEN number, and that’s 275,000,000 people; 90% of the country is on a SEN number; that’s another story. But, I mean, it’s just very, very tough to do.
Now, if you’re a nice, fat, metropolitan area, I may be able to pull of one deal, maybe two deals. The only complaints I’ve ever had- the people love the leads- the only complaints I ever have is we run out of leads. Also, what happens is I gotta go through those 200,000, which probably represents fifty files, and grab two from that one and one from this one and three from that one, and it’s the most inconsistent file I can give ya. It’s still better than infoUSA or modelled information, zip +4 average, which is 16% accurate. But, again, I have a real tough time with small territory. I need you to expand the territory. I need at least five area codes to do a good job for ya.
So, yes, we could help you out, but I’m man enough to tell ya if I have a limitation, and unless you give me states as opposed to area codes—don’t even ask for zip codes; it’s not gonna work. I can’t really help you out. So, if you have some territory, gimme a call- 561-981-8777. Thank you for your time. God bless.
