The Solicitor Said “Take it as a compliment...”

 
This morning I received the third call so far this week and it’s only Tuesday morning. 
 
Would you like to advertise in our golf course magazine the caller asked? 
 
Today it was for advertising in the community magazine for the LPGA Community in Daytona Beach. Yesterday it was for Venetian Bay in New Smyrna Beach, and another call about Plantation Bay in Ormond Beach. 
 
I asked if they could please remove me from their list. He said they didn’t have a list per se they actually do a google search and call from that. 
 
“He said you’re coming up in the searches for those communities so you should take it as a compliment.”
 
He does have a point. I really hadn’t thought about it that way but I should be really happy that I’m getting all those calls!

That certainly is a compliment, but one that could get old as the phone calls keep coming!

Hi Joyce,
Good point.  Google searches can be used by all kinds of people for all kinds of reasons... not all good.

The ones I get the biggest kick out of are the ones trying to sell SEO.  When I ask how they found me, it is almost always from a web search.

Kat Palmiotti So true.  Great that you show up but not so great that you get so many calls.

Joan Cox I completely agree.  If you ask or on the list, they shouldn't be calling.

Hi Joyce:

I guess that's a good way to look at it but so much better to be getting calls from potential buyers and sellers!

Good morning Joyce Marsh, Florida Luxury Market Specialist ,

I'm glad Kathy Streib featured your post in her "Ah-Ha" moments for the week as I missed it. We all like those buyer and seller calls and if you are being found easily by consumers than that is a plus!

Well if it is a google search then yes it's good that you are found, but being on a list that generates the calls...not so much. LOL

Showing up as an active Realtor in you market place on Internet search results is what we all want. If it is organic, of course, not having bought into the other marketer’s pitch about how they will put you #1 in search results in exchange for a few dollars of your money.

Well, I do see that is a positive reminder in the hard sale, that you do have a strong enough presence that they found you, Joyce! 

Like Endre, those golf club magazine ads have made their mark on the Charlotte market too. I, thankfully, was like you and put the kabosh on their sales pitch but, others weren't so lucky.

I guess this is kind of funny, but kind of frustrating for you!  Reading the last line I had to chuckle.  Darn callers!

That caller does make a good point but those calls get very annoying.
