It's simple. They just don't answer the phone sometimes.
We are all busy with our lives. I don't have time to answer a telemarketer's or a bill collector's call.
And of course, if it's from an unknown phone number.
Don't expect anyone to pick it up. Just depends on the time of the day, and their mood I guess...
It works, to a certain degree.
I have seen many of my text messages not getting read.
There is a filter in text now on the IOS iphones.
It will remain their for unknown numbers.
The likelyhood of the text is likely to be seen before an email though.
Well, that's another thing.
It likely went to spam. Especially if you attached something to the first email or posted a link.
The emails are very sensitive when it comes to pushing out your first email to folks.
You've got to keep that email down to one sentence, and request that they mark your email as "non-spam."
Otherwise... It won't get read.
fb messenger & what's app
YouWhat's app is very powerful to get ahold of leads.
I use this myself. I have them sign up and then instantly I promise them a gift of some sort.
But they have to click the button to receive it. As soon as they click the button, they go here.
Click here to find out.
If you have what's app you will find that it takes you directly to the conversation.
And from there, you will also see a pre-filled message.
This allows me to talk to my leads directly in the app. I have now accountability. I can now call them on a Facetime in the app and my answer rates are 100% and my response rates are 100%.
Try it out and see for yourself!
The code template you need to use as the hyperlink is below. Replace the YOURPHONENUMBER with your actual whats app number, and the xxxxxx for the pre-filled text you want to use:
