So, when you have a website on the internet you are open to being contacted by individuals looking to sell you something. I am contacted on a regular basis mostly by email but sometimes by phone to purchase stuff. These calls are beyond annoying. I get calls from individuals who want to help me be #1 on google for real estate in New Orleans at least three times a week. The calls always start with “I work with Google and can…blah, blah”.
These spammers all go to the same training classes because they all use the same tactics and language. When I say I don’t want to hire them they say “oh, you aren’t interested in more business”…
I also get emails from other agents sending me their new listings. Sometimes the agent is in my general vicinity and sometimes they are in Alaska, Iowa or name any state. Yes, these agents have hired national company’s and send me emails about their new listings in their state, where I am not licensed, where I have never been and where I never intend to go.
So the point of this is to tell you that if you sign up I won’t aggressively pursue you to the end of the earth with emails you didn’t request and are not interested in receiving. I do want your business if you are going to buy or sell property in the New Orleans area but I prefer if you contact me. You don’t have to be afraid to sign up.
There are laws in place that outline what businesses must do if they send out emails to anyone. There must be an opt out and if someone decides to opt out we have ten days to comply. This is in case someone else is spamming you…won’t be me.
