Wow …you are sitting on a GOLD mine. You are making 800 dials a day …each and every day. How about automating that process with other systems so you only have to make  TARGETED phone calls. Do this with some constant-contact and stay-in-touch systems that give you top-of-mind positioning with prospects so they grow to know you. Over time more and more will want to do business with you caus people want to do business with people they know, they like and they trust. Check it out … http://www.valuemarketingsystems.com

Bill - some advice.

If you would like to pitch your service to the board, start off by adding some value.  Your first post should not be peddling your wares.

Also, to be seen as professional and credible, you should spellcheck and grammarcheck your post before you post it.

Otherwise, you will have responses like this:

“Go away, piker”

“Seriously, another guy trying to drum up business”

"Yes.  I am interested in some valuemarketing.  Please sign me up.  My email is [email protected]"

And others.

I apologize, you were a broker for 22 years at Ameriprise(never use your real info)…My favorite part is that you have a complaint for off all things “miscommunication”, yet here you are trying to sell a process to keep in touch with clients???

Your business must suck to spend time during the day looking up guys that post ads. What a piker.

Actually was sick today, so sitting here rebalancing some accounts(discretionary), planning my comeback for tomorrow and working on some appointments for thursday.

Business is actually good, assets are coming in, just decreased some of my costs.

I feel people who post for advertising reasons on here should be exposed. For example:

Fred, is on here and we all know who he works for and how to get to the website, but he never pushes his company, and always provides useful information in his area of expertise.

This guy could have just told us what his product was and how it worked, instead of saying "go to my site, watch my terrible video that needs editing and then subscribe to my service"

I agree. Guys should market themselves to professionals better.  How did you lower your costs if I might inquire.

Nov 18, 2009 2:29 am

I found new office space and secured a 4 year lease and by then end of the 4th year I am still paying less than what I am paying today. Also increased size of office by 2x. So overall a nice deal.

As an indy the more I can control my costs the more I can take home.

[quote=stokwiz]Quick question before I let you go. Who do you know (insert your product here, such as “that could use tax free income” or “that has lost money in the market that might like to hear about it?”)

  Or " By the way, how do you feel about the new Roth IRA conversion laws going into effect next year?"   Or Thankyouverymuch! click dialtone (Thank you Bill Good)   Stok[/quote]   Classic!   If it ain't broke, why fix it!   Stok, THX for checking in.
