I just got finished watching a webinar given by Vena Jones-Cox about Marketing.  Over all it was very informative and gave me some good reminders about how to properly market to sellers.  I don’t want to rehash the entire lesson, but I do want to touch on some key points that I’m going to incorporate into my next mailing. How Can I Help You? You’ve probably heard this before and so have I, but for some reason I’ve forgotten this …

A Call From My September Mailing At Last

Scott Costello All, Blog, Probate Investing 5 Comments

With every call I get I know I’m getting closer and closer to my first deal.  I had pretty much given up on getting any immediate calls from my September mailing.  I usually get a quick 3 to 4 calls and then a few trickle in during the following weeks.  All you can do is just make sure you send out the follow up right? I’m not setting up anything big, just throwing out an example for those people who …

I’ve yet to receive any calls from my latest probate mailing which is a bit discouraging.  I’ve always gotten a few but for some reason this time I’ve gotten the big ZERO!   I know I’ll eventually get a deal if I keep at it, but I’m closing in on a year and haven’t gotten much.  I’m as stubborn as the next guy, but sometimes it’s worth switching things up a bit and heading into a new strategy.  I’ve been doing …

With the end of August looming large, I’m going to be preparing my next batch of probate letters to be sent out.   Unlike most prior months I’ve been waiting for the beginning of the month to put all the letters together, stuff and stamp them.  This usually takes me a few nights and the letters don’t go out until the end of the first week.  Not this time!  They will be sent out on the 1st. I also have post …

Before I get started, I want to wish my beautiful bride a very happy 30th birthday today.  She is the love of my life and with out a doubt my best friend as well.  Can’t beat that combo!  In our family we like to celebrate birthdays over a week period, not just on the date itself. We get together with family, have a party with friends and do things throughout the week to make it a really special time. With …
