It very well might be your approach with sellers.
You seemed to have tried a few methods that would work.
Now, your market is a hot one, so maybe it takes a bigger marketing splash to get decent seller calls.
Instead of 200 signs, why not 1000.
Sure, it costs more, but shop around, for that many, I’m sure you can get a good price.
Take a step back for a moment before you order more marketing materials though.
Go over your seller talks on the phone, as well as face to face.
How did you present yourself?
Someone looking, or wanting to buy a house?
Wrong direction, trust me.
Instead, present yourself as a company, that offers a service to the sellers.
Heck, most of my offers, get a reply of, “how much will this service cost me?”
I love that.
So, take a look at your approach, chances are, there was a deal in there, and you missed it.
Not a big thing, there are others.
After you fine tune your approach, or even before, come here to ask questions.
There are a ton of folks to help.
Then, get back on the wagon, and market til you can’t no more!
Beleive me, I market WAY beyond my comfort zone, and the calls come in…man do they sometimes.
But in waves, so be prepared for the slow times.
