Is it time to just do it?

5 Replies

I've done a lot if research. I understand what to say to a distressed seller and I have someone experienced to call if I need help. I really nervous to start direct marketing. After everything I have learned I think that I really can't learn more without experience. Should I start and just learn as I go?

Absolutely. Just jump in and do it -

You'll learn as you go and adjust to whatever comes your way. The more you do it, the more you'll learn and the easier it will get.

@Zaid R. just nervous as hell for some reason. I'll prolly send these mailers out this week

Don't be nervous...be excited. This is fun.

You've got to jump in the pool if you want to learn how to swim.

Dylan,

This is normal, I know I went through it @ one point. Here's what I used to do: go to craigslist and start calling 'for rent' ads, chat with the people, ask about the place, why it's for rent, would they consider selling it...etc

This is a small warm up exercise - I need about 5-7 warm up calls to get in my zone. It's like a sport - basketball players are always taking shots, dribbling before a game to get loose.

Zaid Rabadi I've never heard of that before but that makes great sense I will definitely give it a try. Thanks alot
