Hi, everybody. My name is John Fischer. Welcome to villagebike.net. What’s a village bike? Village bike is a lead that’s been called so many time, pretty much like been ridden by everybody. Village bike- been ridden by everybody. And what is the village bike? It’s the kind of stuff that my competitors sell ya out of the West Coast, Chicago, California; I don’t wanna mention names. I don’t wanna get down and dirty, but the bottom line is it’s horrendous. It’s the same names over and over and over again. And what makes us special at salesleads.tv, the mother ship, is that the sources, the leads that we sell are coming from our customers. These guys don’t have their hands in that stuff, maybe 5%. I mean there’s only so many leads out there, maybe half a million that have been surveyed by a broker dealer in the last two years; that’s about the right number. Guess what? 300,000 of ‘em are the village bike. Now here’s what we’re gonna do. At one point, we used to talk about the data being crap, and who wants to hear this is a telephone call I got today. But a lot of my customers like price. A lot of my customers have brand new guys they don’t want to spend a dollar on a lead. A lot of my guys have diallers that need massive quantities, so what we’ve decided to do is sell you that village bike. You know, we’ve gotten a couple of good reports. When you let a database cool down, and you don’t sell ‘em for a long time, it comes back to life again. So, we’re selling that famous village bike that you’re buying out there in California and Illinois for 50 cents if you buy quantity, a dollar at normal price. Guess what? If you buy 50,000, you’re buying them at 7 and a half cents. If you buy 25,000, you’re paying 15 cents, and if you buy 10,000, you’re down to a quarter. And, believe me, it’s the same, exact data. The problem is it’s older. It takes a lot more numbers to hit your numbers, but if you’re using a dialler, it makes a lot of sense. And if you do the math, your cost-per-acquisition or cost-per-lead is gonna come to the right place. Keep in mind- we suppress against previous orders. We will not sell you Pennsylvania. Any broker that doesn’t- list broker- that doesn’t tell you, ‘No, I’m not giving you Pennsylvania’, he’s not a nice guy. That’s the worst state. Don’t ever call Pennsylvania, North Dakota, South Dakota, Hawaii, Alabama, Montana. We just don’t sell people those. I don’t care how much money I lose; I don’t wanna see you get in trouble.
The last thing is suppression. You should be giving your list broker a list of all the phone numbers, not name, address and phone number, just the phone numbers. And say, ‘Hey, I don’t wanna buy these phone numbers. I already own ‘em.’ It’s gonna really piss ‘em off, but that’s how we do business- we suppress against previous orders. You’ll find out that every two or three months, those guys are– notorious, especially the guy in Illinois—selling you the same names over and over. We pick up so many of his clients on a monthly basis cuz they’re tired of it. So, the village bike is the same data you’re buying over there, much, much cheaper. If you have to sand ‘em, we will scrub for ya. We have scrubbed against last year, and the previous year’s litigator’s list, not this year, and on top of that, we clean out all the bad states. So, it’s a much, much—Oh yeah, one more thing we’ve sent them out and we’ve had ‘em pinged, so the disconnects are much, much lower, maybe 10% if you’re lucky, and we’ll give you two for one. So if you have any questions, gimme a call- 561-239-0364. Have a beautiful day, and God bless.
After 25 years of being in the lead business, specializing in accredited investors, I’ve made some big observations… The biggest one being the sheer amount of leads that many list brokers share and trade. When we buy leads, we always ask for phone numbers to do a suppression (comparing the numbers against those that you own to identify the unique numbers you haven’t ever purchased before) Throughout years of buying leads, I’ve found that the vast majority of leads are being sold over and over again by several different brokers. The problem became so severe that I actually had to stop buying and trading leads from any and all companies from California and Illinois.
Since I’ve been in this industry for so long, I’ve met and become friendly with many of the lead brokers that own these companies, and while I don’t want to bad mouth them personally, I’ll never buy from or trade with them. These “trunk lead” brokers are one man operations and work out of the trunks of their cars. They’re only interest is instant gratification; instead of providing exclusive leads to their clients, they’ll sell their files to the largest lead-broker in Illinois. He pays instant cash and has ten guys on the phone, and before these trunk lead boys give their own clients a fighting chance, the list has been smashed to pieces. When the “trunk lead” broker’s clients go to call their “fresh” leads, all they ever hear is, “this is the tenth phone call I’ve gotten today! Don’t call me!”
We call these leads:
The Village Bike
Ridden By Everybody
The Village Bike does have its uses…
- Practice Leads for new brokers
- Bulk leads to fill up a larger firm’s dialer
- The best value leads for cheap bosses who refuse to pay for quality
- Filling orders with very specific geographic targeting requirements
We ping all of our leads, with a disconnect rate below 10%. We’ll replace all wrong numbers, disconnects, and idiots. It’s rare to find them, but we’re grateful when clients can help us eliminate trash from our database.
With your SAN Number, we’ll scrub your leads for free
If you don’t have a SAN Number, we’ll get you one. With a SAN, you can call in 5 free area codes and pay to call in any more. We are happy to help set you up with a SAN, and will even rescrub your leads every 30 days for free. If you’d rather take responsibility for DNC-suppression and scrub your leads in-house, that’s fine too. In that case, all we will need is for you to sign an indemnity letter that releases us from responsibility if you get hit with a DNC violation.
We don’t have the heart to charge $1-50¢ (quantity)
We charge 15-7.5¢ – What we know they’re worth
Minimum Order – $500 (2500 Leads)
If you’d like proof that you’re receiving no doubles, send us your previously purchased leads with each new order and we’ll check to make sure we’re not selling them back to you. Unlike our friends on the west coast, we’ll never sell you the same number twice!
