New Challenges – Silence Unknown Callers

Silence Unknown Callers

Hi everybody my name is john fisher welcome to you know I want to talk about these new challenges that you guys are facing right now and it’s pretty bad. The iPhone has a feature on the app right now that’s called silence unknown callers and when I first got that update I said to myself, oh my god I’m going to lose all of my clients. I won’t know who’s calling, so how’s this gonna work for me? The bottom line is that I shut it off. Then all of a sudden I started getting all the damn spam calls and all the robocalls and I put silence unknown callers back on.

The problem with you guys is the regular consumer sees a silenced call and the way it’s designed if that contact name is not in his contacts automatically goes straight to voice mail. There’s nothing it doesn’t even ring boop right into the voicemail and chances are people are never going to call you back. They think you’re spam, they think you’re scamming them or god knows what they think. 

I’m trying to pin down the numbers, but I would say 70% of everything I give you is a cell phone. I  mean unless you’re really creative and leave a really good message you know may be using the guy’s first name, I don’t know to tell you there’s no way for me to identify those numbers you know so it’s a challenge. I hate to tell you this, but you know the days of you buying you know 500 worth of leads even a thousand dollars leads it’s over you’re never going to hit your numbers. I mean you could safely say to yourself that half of everything you call is going to go straight to voice mail and that’s it you’re probably not going to get a call back from that guy. 

You know so that’s pretty bad and to make things worse now you got the telecoms and what’s happening is they have some kind of an algorithm that counts how many phone calls you’re making a day and you know based on what that number looks like they automatically put spam risk on your phone caller ID.

I got to tell you the good news and the good news is business strong, last month I had a record-breaking month, and the month before I had a strong month. I’m blowing those numbers away and it’s mostly numismatic of coin guys and precious metal guys. So anyway, I wanted to give you a heads up on that silence unknown caller feature and I wanted to give you a heads up on the spam call. I wish I had better news for you.

My customers that are in business are killing them I mean they’re kicking ass it could be the numismatic coins and the precious metals are doing very very well you know the oil and gas guys are almost gone but uh the ones that are there only the strong survive just like me not many list brokers left that know what the hell they’re doing. 

Last but not least of course is uh you know my professional litigator troublemaker list is growing you know we’re at 1.3 million right now and you know even some of the big guys that you know tout they know how great their lists only have three or four hundred thousand so how did I get 1.3 million? 

If you would like further information, feel free to call me at 561-239-0364. I just want to give you an update and let you know what’s happening out in the marketplace today. Have yourself a beautiful day and I wish I had better news for you but hey again just the strong survive and you just got to do what they always told us we just got to dial in this case down more than we’re normally used to have ourselves a beautiful day god bless and thanks for your time.
