Marketing Monday: Repeat Mailings

Scott CostelloBlog, Featured, Marketing 13 Comments

Have you ever heard that it takes an average of 7 contacts with a lead before you get through to them?  I have no idea if that is actually true, but I’ve heard it so often that I tend to believe.  My personality is that I don’t want to bother or annoy people and sending out 7 mailers to someone would seem to be doing just that.  How many of you feel the same way? and has it stopped you …

101 Wants, Needs and Goals

Scott CostelloAll, Blog, Featured 7 Comments

In one of the books I read over my vacation, it was suggested that I take the time to write down the 101 goals, wants and experiences that I’d like to achieve over the rest of my life.  There are a lot of things for sure, but I’ve never really put them all down in a list.  Below is my attempt at doing this.  The items are not in any order of importance, they are just the order that came …

It’s Wednesday and I’m happy to say I’m right on track with my mailer goals so far.  I’ve got 58 letters sitting in my car ready to be mailed out at lunch time.  The getting back up to speed part of the week is now over and I’ve got to kick it into high gear if I’m going to get another 150 letters done by Friday evening. I’ve identified two towns that I’m going to pull Out-of-State owner lists from …

Marketing Monday: Recharging The Batteries

Sorry for the lack of a post last week, I was gone on vacation down in North Carolina with the family.  I had a nice relaxing time on the beach hanging out with the people closest to me.   We stayed at my Uncles house in Emerald Isle.  The house is right on the beach, we literally just had to walk out the back porch and the water was 100 feet away.  Scotty Liked! I’ve discussed this before for sure, …

Have you ever thought about your perfect day?

I signed up for the DivaMoneyClub a little over a week ago and I’ve been very impressed with all the information given by Shae and Susan so far.  I haven’t listened to Julie or Steph just yet but I’m looking forward to doing so.  Anyway, one of the questions posed by Shae in the Mindset modules was…. “…What would your perfect day look like?”   It seems like an easy enough question to answer, but as I started to think about …

Marketing Monday: Evictions and Postcards

Scott CostelloBlog, Featured, Marketing 2 Comments

Along with Probate, Out of State Owners and driving for dollar leads, my partner and I have decided to try our luck with Evictions. We are going to pull the eviction list from the county courthouse.  After some searching we found that the area of the courthouse to look (at least in New Jersey) is the Office of the Clerk of the Special Civil Part. Here is more information about Evictions. For those just starting out, when I say evictions, …

Can I do it?

Over the past month or so I have been falling in a bit of a rut, maybe it’s the summer that has caused my malaise.  I have still been getting out the direct mail and have been going out with my partner to put out bandit signs or driving for dollars but I feel like I need to step it up a notch.  It is time to push myself to the next level by setting some higher goals for myself. …
