What auto dialer are you using for your business and why?
@Mahan Shahverdi Tons of options, depends on your goals if you want to use one, which ones have you looked into?
Auto dialer works great. This is a numbers game and you can reach a lot more people this way. You can track your metrics with the dialer. It is not a magic pill though. The money is in the follow up.
@Russell Holmes have you considered that, in addition to the fact that such unsolicited calls are prohibited by law, that when you make thousands of calls you're wasting thousands of other people's time as well?
@Russell Holmes , I appreciate you taking the time to reply, and not taking offense. I can see how I came across as soap-boxy, but there's no reason to assume I threaten anyone who calls - most callers are just keeping a job of their own, and what would be the point?
I came across this thread while wondering who in the field is using autodialers, and to see the perspective of people using them. I've recently become inundated with calls for offers to purchase a property (none of my properties are currently for sale), and as a recipient, I find them to be an equal nuisance whether the call is a robot, scripted friendly message, or straight-to-voicemail. However, it's easy to see the appeal when you're able to reach such a large number of potential leads for just a few hundred dollars a month, and I don't mean to undermine the help you're providing to other members.
@Riley Truitt My apologies if I came off a bit harsh. I noticed that you hadn't posted elsewhere and had very little info on your profile. Oftentimes when someone who has very little info makes their first post to tell someone what they do is illegal etc they go on to do the same on multiple threads before getting called out on it and kicked off. It often pops up on older threads because they search out specific topics to blast off their two cents to as many threads as they can before moderators pick up on it and kick them off. But in honest cases of searching out an interest like you did before getting around to filling in your profile, I falsely assumed "troll". My bad!
I did some cold calling for awhile and may again at some point in the future, but I'm having better success and enjoying hustling for leads in more organic day-to-day networking and conversation. I'm on the road a lot around town with a service business I also run as I phase out of it, so I'm around people constantly who I talk with and rarely home with an hour to kill to call people I'm not in front of. I've usually got plenty of research/communication to handle with my buyers and sellers when I do sit down in front of the computer. Cold calling definitely works to grind out some leads, and if someone did 1-2 hours a day 5 days a week for a few months, momentum and sales would be built. But I will say it's not my best use of my time.
