Hey everybody my name is John Fisher, welcome to VillageBike.net and this is Romeo. Romeo say Hello, that’s Romeo, he’s my new pet, I lost two of my dogs in 48 and he’s my new baby. But anyway, the bottom line is why are we here? What is the village bike? The village bike is a name we came up with and in the industry, it’s what we call stuff that’s been banged and “Don’t call me no more”, this is a ten phone calls I got today, it’s been sold a million times, I mean it’s been called the village bike because it’s been ridden by everybody.
So for years I’ve been putting down the village bike, I’ve been telling people, yeah, well you’re buying the village bike what do you expect, you know, it’s hammered stuff and blah blah blah and you know what, I have recognized that there is a clientele out there that if you give him a phone book a or a guy like me, you hand me a phone book and I’m going to close, so they don’t care about who else is talking to them, they don’t care how many times it’s been sold, they just like, you know, just sell me the lead, don’t worry about it because I’m quick in that first 30 seconds, I’m going to say the right thing and I’m going to get that guy and on top of that I got a dialer that each 50 thousand leads at a time and I need a much much better price. We said you know what, it’s money we’re losing, we have 300 thousand of them, we sold 50 thousand at 7.5 cents, 10 thousand at 15 cents, same exact stuff you’re buying from everybody out there in the West coast there, it’s where the data comes from. How do we buy someone else’s data? The guy calls me up, says “Hey John, I’m going out of business, here’s how many leads I have, here’s where they came from”, I say “send me the numbers”, I take a look at the phone numbers, see what I own, what I don’t own, what’s on the “Do Not Call”, what’s on the litigators, who are the regulators and then I make a decision whether I want to buy the list or not, I happen to buy those super cheap, so I ended up with them, I even know what company they came from.
So, I’ve got 300 thousand of them, I send them out to be pinged which means I can verify that the phone number is good enough which they don’t have, I have that mine are clean and you know what, the bottom line is that at 7.5 cents for 50 thousand, $3500 or 50 thousand leads. For oil and gas investors which is the majority of what that stuff is, all of us in the lead business, we sell 80/85/90 percent oil and gas people, they’re people that a broker dealer selling a private placement in the oil and gas drilling ventures was called, vetted as being accredited investor; 25 to 50 thousand dollars of liquid risk capital and mailed a private placement memorandum, that’s the bread and butter of all this. Yeah, there’s some real estate, we have some tech, we have some entertainment, but the majority of everyone’s data happens to be oil and gas investors. So, instead of paying a buck a piece which is what saleslead.tv, the mothership my company sells and you want some really really cheapy stuff, maybe you’ve got some new brokers you want them to cut your teeth, you don’t waste the good stuff on them, the village bike.
I you got any questions call me, John Fisher: 561-981-8777. 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 $1.00-$0.50 quantity
We charge $0.15-$0.075 – What we know they’re worth
If you’d like proof that you’re receiving no duplicates, 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. We just need the phone numbers of your previously purchased leads. We call this a “SUPPRESSION”. Unlike our friends on the West Coast, we’ll never sell you the same number twice!
