Finding Bird Dogs

1 Reply

I've been considering using Craigslist to recruit Bird Dogs.  Know virtually nothing about finding and working with these folks.  Any pointers would be appreciated!

@Beau Miller  Not effective at all from my experience.  They make you excited and they waste so much time because most are expecting a quick paycheck.  I have tried the mailman lead, that works great.  I also have tried down at the permit office to find out of homes that have been  issued a violation for not cutting their lawn, too much junk in the yard and things like that.  Lastly, the foundation guys and roofers I use are great for that as they get these massive jobs where people can't afford their services.  With those guys they only require that I go through them for the project, so I don't even pay them a referral fee.
