Feeling discouraged. Direct marketing hasn't work...yet.

2 Replies

I know it's a numbers game and it takes time.  But I have sent hundreds of post cards/letters and spent several hundred bucks.  No calls back.  Focus right now is note buying to build up a little cash.  From there, wholesaling and buying buy and hold properties.  I did put in some offers this week on small families.  So  I am committed.  Thanks for letting me vent. Feel like forum therapy.  Have a good weekend BP peeps!

It is difficult starting out, I feel especially more in the avenue you have selected to go. It is easy to get discouraged when you get no response.  I know the advice out there says pick a strategy and stick with it, but every once in awhile you may want to evaluate your strategy and where you are.  

I've stuck with buy and hold; while using my administration company as the cash cow that finances my purchases. 

Good luck!
