T.T. do you use 2 computers or 2 separate displays when you are using 2 dialers?

Thanks!

You need to be over 200 dials per hour. Mojo conservatively will dial 225 per hour per licence. You are about 100 dials per hour short.

The only time you will go to 180-200 per hour is when you are contacting 100 people per hour. You clearly aren't doing that, so up your game.

Yesterday each of my licences dialled 1100 & 1000 dials each in 5 hours and i made 500 contacts .

Today in my first hour, one licence dialled 290, the other did 270 dials, and I made 92 contacts in that first hour, and this is my 2nd time dialing through this community since yesterday. 1 HOT lead that is decluttering now. May already have an agent.

You have to stay focused on the dialer and nothing else,
(after all YOU ARE WORKING) with your finger on your mouse and your curser hovering over the no contact/contact button.

Lucky. Putting people who were contacted to a separate list will definitely improve contact rates.

TextNow is the app - check it out. Like Lucky said - you need to figure out why your dials/contacts are so low......if your contact rate is very low on cold calls then you should be dialing easy 250/hr. If you're not doing at least 30-40 contacts/hr cold calling then you're not going to get too far with it.

Ok for you guys hitting those really high contact rates (eg 45 or 50 an hour and getting 250 dials in an hour)

Here are is an typical example of my calling reports from mojo using a triple dialer. Note contact rate is 8%...again, pretty typical in my experience.

From a total of 3 hours 9 minutes on the phone, just over 2 and 1/2 hours was spent talking to people.

...what am I doing wrong? I had 42 contacts with and average of conversation of just over 3 and 1/2 minutes per conversation, set 2 appointments and the rest of the time was waiting for pickups, hangups etc.

How do you get 250 dials and 50 contacts in an hour if you are actually talking to anyone and setting appointments.


TOTAL CONTACTS
Total Calls Made 541
Total Contacts Made 42 = 8%
Total Appointments Made 2 = 0%
Total DNC Contacts 2 = 0%

naptown,
pick up rates depend on the neighbourhood. it varies from area to area, time of day, day of the week....etc. Also depends if it's a 2nd or 3rd time thru the list. Mojo goes thru faster with date filters.
Also my talk time is usually approx. 1 minute.

just keep calling. hell you got 2 appts.!
lots of agents report 5% pickup rates.

seems like your conversations are very long. I'd keep it very simple - hi this is naptown with abc real estate. I was calling to see if you had any interest in selling your home.

You're spending too much time talking to people - if you're going to be spending that much time building rapport you should be asking if they have friends/family that need to move anytime soon. I just blaze through em asking if they need to move this year. Talk time is worthless if it isn't with a qualified lead - we're here to sell houses, not make friends.

Took my first listing of the year yesterday - an expired contacted 1/2, goes live 2/1. Also one pending and one closed so far this year.

You're not doing anything wrong.

maybe set your ringer to 5, and add the 5-7pm hours to your prospecting, when people are home.

I'm calling a neighborhood with lots of minorities who hardly ever pick up the phone, and always let it go to voicemail.

Nobody, that's why I would never ask anybody that question.

My point was more that he shouldn't be talking that much. Idk what he's doing in a conversation that long if it isn't with a lead other than trying to find other business through them (referrals, etc).

Shouldn't need to talk to anyone for more than 10-15 seconds unless they respond that they are thinking of moving in the near future.
