Today I have 5 tips for using ringless voicemail for probate marketing. If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you’ll know that I’ve generally been against cold calling people that have a house in probate. The exception to that rule would be that it’s OK to call them if they have called you after getting your direct mail letter. In that case, its’ fine to reach out to them at a future date. However, the key thing to remember is that they need to call you first.
This is a very sensitive time in their life and the last thing you want to do is upset them at what is almost certainly a very difficult time in their life.

Today I want to answer a reader question that I have gotten several times just in the past couple of weeks. In fact, investors who are just getting started in probate investing ask me this particular question all the time:
“How many months should I go back when I first start out”?

The topic of today’s show is Gen Z and Technology, and the way this generation is changing the way we do business.
This is the first generation in history to be born into a world where everything is digital. They have never known another way of doing things. Because of this, business is changing rapidly and if you don’t change the way you do business, you will be left behind. Your business will become obsolete.
Simply put, Gen Z will not do business with companies that cannot meet their needs.
