[00:00] So last time we talked that it was on Friday and I had just had pretty successful day using text message marketing that didn't really carry over necessarily into the weekend. I was hoping it would still be dripping in over the weekend. The people who hadn't responded. So I think I sent it up to 60 or 70 people. I sent like a mass message, a deal to about 60 or 70 people that I had talked to over the past two months and I think I closed, you know, 10 to 15 percent of those with a followup marketing. And that's awesome because normally I wouldn't even really be following up with them. So it was definitely, I would have closed none. So it was definitely good and I've started taking calls on Saturdays and Sundays, not like full day's work but like half days, like I'll take four calls Saturday for calls Sunday and it hadn't really paid off.
[00:58] So I was thinking about stopping doing it because most of the time when people schedule on Saturdays and Sundays they don't show up for the call. So it's like I make sure that I'm somewhere near my computer and I'm not out like, you know, at the park with my kid or something else I could be doing and then the people don't answer and it really kind of makes me angry. And then when they call me back, I'm irritated with them. But this weekend, uh, it worked out well, closed a couple deals and it was definitely worth it to have spent time on the weekend, you know, working. So I was glad that finally worked out and uh, pretty much everybody showed up for the calls. Um, it was good. It was good. I don't mind working on the weekend when I actually get paid. I don't like working in the not having made any progress, which is, which is pretty obvious why I'm so on the real estate front.
[01:50] This is kind of how I'm going to break these, these podcasts down from here in the next week at least, I'm going to try to talk about my llc business and what's happening. And then my secondary business, which is real estate. So with real estate today, I am actually going to be potentially doing some cold calls for another guy, um, who has a company that's pretty successful. I don't really want to talk about who he is yet. I'm just because I don't know, I don't know if he wants to be talked about, but uh, he's not local to me. He's in Mississippi, but I'm at least, I think he's in Mississippi. Um, he's, he's building up a lot of cold colors that are just working on commissions. And I talked to him about it. I was like, yeah, I'll do it. Like I would like to be trained by somebody who's, who's doing tons of deals.
[02:35] Do, does. I'm sure he does at least five to 10 deals a month and I would imagine that's probably around where he's doing it. And he's doing these cold call cold callers on just strictly commission, which I'm fine with because the way my business works. Like I would rather just work for commission honestly. Like I'm not going to take an hourly position unless it's something like $100 an hour. Maybe I'd consider it. But, uh, I'm going to be doing some cold calling. Hopefully I'm going to be talking with him. We're jumping on a call this morning to kind of talk about, I guess what he wants, like the top software he's going to use. I really don't know what we're doing is because I had this, I assume he's going to tell me how to like record my calls, had to send in my info to their va's on what I've accomplished that day so they can just kind of track what you're doing.
[03:22] I, I'm already pretty familiar with the software, the cold calling software that I imagine they're gonna want to use, which is Mojo. I've used that plenty of times. I have a triple dialer which calls three people at once and um, whoever answers like that's the call that you talk to and it plays a, a message to the other people if they answer where it's basically like you're like, hello, hello, a bad connection. I gotta call you back. It's Corny as hell. But, uh, it works. I guess. I mean, I don't know, you know, like I've talked about, I haven't really focused a lot on the real estate side of it, on wholesaling or anything like that just because I've been so focused on my llc stuff that the amount of time that you have to put in to the marketing for real estate is no joke.
[04:08] Like, I mean you can make a lot of money in real estate and it's not like it's you have to be a genius to do it, but you have to have either time to do the marketing or money to pay someone to do the marketing. And I just have, I don't really have either one of those right now. So I would rather just kind of work under, under a team of people that have already succeeded and um, you know, just see what I can learn from what they're doing and it may just be just fine to just do that. For now. You know, I don't necessarily have the time to be out on, on building a team and building my own systems for that while the llc stuff is going as well as it is. So hopefully it will just be some nice little way to learn.
[04:48] It's less about making money and uh, I mean that's part of it. Like I need to make more money for sure and like money, uh, for working if I'm working, I want to make money, but it's more about just learning from somebody who's who's really succeeding at it and this guy, you know, learned under Max, Max Maxwell or they kind of came into the game at the same time and that he's just successful and I don't know, he just seems like a super nice guy. He's kind of coming from a similar background as me as far as his marketing where he learned about online marketing and stuff and kind of who his influences are in that realm or are the same as mine it seems. And so I think we might speak the same language and it's just definitely worth a try. You know, I'm not too good to cold call for somebody else just because of I'm already an attorney.
[05:34] I'm not too good for any position, you know, I need to learn and if that means that start at the bottom, I start at the bottom, I don't care. It doesn't matter. It doesn't hurt my ego at all. So that's what's going on this week. I look forward to definitely, definitely can have a lot to talk about this week if that really goes forward. Hopefully it does. Of course there are no guarantees, but, uh, I'm hoping that that works out either way. I hope everybody has a great day. Hope everybody has a great week and I'll talk to you guys tomorrow.
