Well I have done mailings, and tried to do follow up phone calls, but the people who offer to take a message and have them call me back- never do. I had one attorney call me back and then when I sppoke to him, he basically got my message and couldnt remember who I was. When I told him what I did he said his wife was a nurse,but i said if he ever had any questions in an area that she wasnt familiar with then to call me. I have probably mailed out at least 60 packets and nothing. just a little discouraged- thats all.
So, you have faithfully
f/u on all 60 mailings? If not, you definitely need to do that.
If so, start again with new contacts. It may take several mailings to get that first case.
And, contact those in your area to set up a luncheon. Have Power Point presentation about your business and what you have to offer during the informal luncheon. It will keep your name and face out there.
You need to really consider exhibiting at your state Bar Association and/or your state Trial Lawyers Association. And, you may even consider advertising in one or both of these organization's quarterly issues.
I know you are discouraged. It is the hardest part of this career.........selling yourself. Keep it up. You will get cases if you are persistent.
