*555-5555 calls me and I write down the number*@Johnny boy would you mind if I ask, how did you reply to the folks that called in and were like "Who gave you my number?" (assuming that might've happened a few times, no?).
Trying to get ideas to smooth through those initial awkward stages when first breaking the ice with folks.
Any helpful feedback is much appreciated.
"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?"
"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?"
"email@example.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".
