    *555-5555 calls me and I write down the number*

    "Hello this is johnny boy lawn care"

    "Hi, you said a neighbor gave you my number. Who was it?"

    "Ah, yes let me check my notes...looks like Rachel gave me your number.. 555-5455 right?" (repeat back the wrong number by one digit)

    "No this is 555-5555, who tf is Rachel?"

    "Oh I'm so sorry! I dialed the wrong number! You don't happen to live in (city) do you?"

    "I do"

    "Oh, sweet! Let me enter you in to win free lawn care in our raffle. It's the least I can do for taking up your time. Do you currently use a lawn care company or plan to this year?"

    "I'm considering it"

    "Awesome, well let's get you a free quote and then we'll enter you in to win free lawn care. I just need some info real quick. Address and email?"

    "billbuttlicker@gmail.com and 420 69th ave sw, Beverly hills 90210"

    "awesome and does today or tomorrow afternoon work for your free appointment to get that quote? I can be there during the afternoon. It will only take a few minutes"

    "uh, 4:30 should work"

    "great see you then"

    *meet with him and try to sign him up on a contract*

    "Funny how all this happened from me dialing the wrong number. Life is funny that way".

    Has anyone used this as a way to do lead gen for a client? I have a client who is signing up for PPC ads and was thinking about maybe trying this out as a way to impress them with a lead or two.

    Alrighty, gonna try this out.

    Looks like I can get the zip code I want from telephonelists & they claim they've scrubbed it against the DNC list & it's a combo of landlines & cell phones.

    Slybroadcast claims this works on both types of phone lines. And I can stagger the VM message drop so I'm not blasting 800 people all at once. I'll be staggering them on a coming weekend day when I have no clients scheduled & can field any potential phone calls.

    I'll also be creating the VM message from inside my car, as I'm basically asking people if the big a$$ garage house I'm driving by is theirs, haha.

    Total investment:

    $79 for the zip code with 853 numbers
    $60 for 1000 VM's of my pre-recorded message sent out
    Total investment, $139 bucks & an hour or two of my time.

    Researched AZ law & there seems to be nothing on the books showing this as illegal here.


    I'll report back with results.

    Thank you again for this... Closed my first deal using this method.

    On Wednesday. Used a VA to scrape 400 phone numbers: $12

    On Thursday. I use SlyBroadcastst to drop voicemail, only 200 were successful. Cost: $16

    On Friday, I closed a deal in which the client is paying $600 /month.

    Where did you scrape the phone numbers from? Are you B2B, or B2C?

    Hi Kyle,

    Awesome Execution!
    How do you start the pitch for web design and SEO service?

    I so wish to try this, but here in India, there is no concept of voicemail. No one uses it. I am trying to implement this via whatsapp if I can get the whatsapp numbers.

    My agreement specifically states it's not scrubbed. Just looking out. It may be different state to state.

    Thanks for the heads up, I read all the fine print, always, but I have yet to pull the trigger. I will report back on that specifically also when I'm able to make this happen. Much appreciated!

    I checked out this site. Looks like a good method, providing you already have the phone numbers of the prospects on your list. No list, no deal.

    How do you use this software?

    In B2B, landline numbers are the norm, not mobile numbers. The software unfortunately does not accept landline numbers for me, does anyone have any tips for me?


    Many Thanks

    Have you already tried to send the messages? I uploaded 2x separate recipient lists with 100x numbers each, many of which were landlines, and didn't receive any errors.

    Thank you for your reply.


    I would like to send out the messages, but the software does not even accept the landline numbers. I live in Europe maybe thats a problem?

    And in my FAQ stands:
    "No, Slybroadcast Global does not work to fixed phone lines. When sending or scheduling a campaign, our system will automatially remove any fixed phone numbers from your list."

    I used their "Try it Now" option and sent a message to my own phone. It rang for half a second from "UNKNOWN" and didn't leave me any voicemail...

    Has this happened to anyone else? I'm going to ask their support team about it.
