Do any of you acquire your prospects without cold contacting at all?


I'm talking about working strictly referrals and natural network?

Jun 2, 2007 2:11 pm

I run an ad on craigslist and the phone rings off the hook.

You already know about Bobby's very little penis (VLP). He is short, and has an inferiority complex. 


He needs to do a search on " Bobby's VLP" here before opening his rot, and he needs to report his sales numbers to the group. Otherwise, I shall be forced to send in the Doberman to have removed and eaten the small flagpole of his manhood.

You spend a lot of time thinking about dicks, don't you?

Its really hard (no pun intended) to get banned on this forum, isnt it?


And who is this new person, crashcourse? Very curious to me (parachute/freedom/etc?????)

Thanks to LBD, a little man with a verified little dick, by his own admission, who usually talks like a dick here, acts like a dick, even though he apparently does not like his own little penis. Little Bobby Dick.

mdangerlo,  I used to work 100% on referrals.  I did this for years.  I could easily do this again.  I chose to start making cold calls again because I wanted the focus on my efforts to work with business owners, and I'm not at the point that I can have a 100% referral business only working with business owners.  I prefer cold walking to cold calling, but I do both.


If you choose to have a 100% referral business the key is to ask at every meeting.  You must ask for referrals before someone becomes a client.  You should be able to get referrals even from a 5 minute introductory meeting.

I only know of one person who has built his entire book on his network.  His cold call career lasted less than an hour.  His book is not very large though.

Did you personally verify the size of Bobby's member?

You seem to be pretty obsessed with it!

Back to the topic


I've never cold called or door knocked.  Used seminars exclusively, and now, only use referrals and sponsored seminars/speaking.  I can't imagine someone new to the business -- no matter how well connected -- could survive solely on referrals.  I'm sure someone, somewhere has done it, but I don't think that means anyone starting off in this business should expect they could build a business that way.

Interestingly, you chose to bring the whole sordid matter again, using the word "obsessed".


You know very well, Joe Broker, that my mother conducted the verification, Bobby had hinted at the relationship between my mother and and the corroboration of the fact of his alarmingly small penis is presented alongside his dickhead posting history here. Let the reader decide what motivates Bobby.


On a lighter note, and to feed your obsessions, consider the link to the news item.


This is what's going to happen to Bobby if he does not keep his rot shut, and speak only when spoken to, or at least cut the negative crap here. I believe I speak for many, Doberman has already spoken.

You are my puppet. All I want to do is get a reaction out of people like you and you have taken the bait. The more you talk about me the more I win.

Do you ever wonder what life would be like if you'd had enough oxygen at birth?

I've never really given it much thought, but it may explain why I devote most of my time to trying to get back inside.

I hear the only place you're ever invited is outside.

After hearing the news about yet another Bobby Attack, she leaned across the table and smiled, " I mean, really, how large of a brain do you think is required to operate a penis the length and width of a  lipstick tube ?"

Never enter a battle of wits unarmed. Nobody says that you are dumb. They just say you were sixteen years old before you learned how to wave good-bye.
