Interesting to see the detailed results. Did you get any angry people? Just curious. Thanks for sharing with us.

I am still trying to digest all this great information. Out of 4500 calls you landed 8 jobs? Is that correct?

Well that is just awesome! How much time does it take to set this up?

Also do you experiment with two different outgoing messages to see which one pulls in the most follow ups?

Excellent use of technology! I imagine if you land 2, maybe even just 1 client it will have paid for itself. Good job.

Have you considered doing a follow-up message? Statistics show you'll get even more responses with a second message to the same list.

I'll be very interested to hear about your overall results.

Chestin,

What would you suggest to him to say in a follow up message?

First off, I would say something to the effect it's the 2nd time you're trying to reach them. Reiterate the offer you made in the previous message, in this case the free estimate. Just tell them the reason you're calling is because you'd hate for them to miss out on the opportunity to get XX (the benefits of your offer).

I'd add some type of element that creates some urgency to get them to pick up the phone and call, something that was missing from the first message.

Overall, I'd keep the message similar to the first one, but tell them you're contacting them a second time to help them understand you're serious about getting them to take you up on your offer.
