Thanks to AR my phone is ringing off the hook, BUT.......

Over the last several days I have taken many calls (at least 10) from a company trying to sell me front page Google Juice at the lordly price of $200/month!!

How did they come to call me I asked.  Oh, we found your blog and thought this new program we were offering for REALTORS would certainly help you get front page coverage.  Blah, Blah Blah.  WELL......  First of all, I'm not a Realtor, I'm a Title Agent.  Secondly, if you found my blog, did you bother to read anything other than how to call and annoy me with your solicitation?   I think NOT

These calls have been made to both my office number and my cell number. 

I don't want to remove that information from my profile obviously, but REALLY, I don't want to be solicited day and night either.  

How can we prevent this?  Any ideas?  Hopefully, those who are trolling the internet will come upon this post and realize that  that I offer my cell and office number so that consumers, lenders and real estate agents who need information or help relating to Title Insurance can easily reach me.

I feel your pain. It seems to go in cycles for me. I will have my phone ringing daily for weeks and then suddenly it goes quiet for month and starts back again the next.

I get calls wanting to help me get to the top of the search engines. Hello! If I was not visible they would not find me to call me!

I have no idea how we get around this and I get way more solicitation as well, most of it via email though.  I guess ActiveRain is like a drug and all drugs have their negative side effects.

It is amazing how people find our number and just keep selling us on items we do not need.

Thank you all for your comments! 

It is really really frustrating to have the phone ringing constantly with someone who only wants to SELL me something.  I think what bothers me more is that they are specifically targeting REALTORS in this particular campaign yet call me daily.  I think I make it very clear that I am NOT a Realtor.   Wouldn't you think they would not want to waste their time as well as mine. 

 

Grrr... frustrating.
