    Hello,

    What is Robo-calling? Simply put, it is automated cold-calling via bots.

    If you've ever cold-called in the past, you know it sucks. You also know its a numbers game.

    Here's what I want to do:

    Create a Multi-threaded software platform that makes (at the start) 1000 - 2000 calls per minute. This is between 1.44mil - 2.88 million calls per day.

    Create scraping program to sift all the US online phonebooks in the business categories and target the small businesses, meaning the mom and pops. According to the US Census Bureau there are over 21Million sole proprietors (meaning mom and pops) in the US as of 2011. This means these people are most likely to be the ones who answer a voicemail and hear our message.

    Now, since we are targeting only the companies that are small enough to listen to our voicemail message - btw, we leave voicemail messages because no one wants to talk to a salesman - much less a bot that isn't going to be able to respond like a human would.. We leave the voicemail because 1) its a robot calling (duh) and 2)It's a lot easier to listen to a sales pitch when you don't have put your defenses up like you would when you're preparing yourself to tell someone you're not interested and hangup. 3) we use a certain type of sales technique that is so subtle that they would not even know they're being sold on something.. This is where OUR product comes in.

    I have a product that is $100 per month that I want to target to these people.. Here are the numbers:

    Conv. Ratio | Total sales | Value if only 25% stayed on for 6 months
    0.01% 2,100units $1,260,000
    0.1% 21,000units $12,600,000
    0.5% 105,000units $63,000,000.00
    Do I need to go further? I believe the true conversion rate for my product will be more along the lines of 1% so you can double the last figure.

    Problems that will arise: Merchant account that would accept up to $200Million in the first 30 days.. lol.

    Anyways, I hope you find my idea interesting. If any of you are interested, or want to call my bluff, I can handle you. I know what I am talking about here.

    P.S. If you're a Ron Paul fan you'll love this: I want to send a message to every american household + small business with our software platform :)

    Maybe you should do some small scale, manual testing before you try to start a huge project.

    Yes, they are cracking down on people calling non-business people (people @ home)

    This has nothing to do with calling businesses, or politicians calling peoples homes.

    I've called around 25~ businesses manually and 5 or so were definitely interested.

    Now that is because the product I want to sell is actually a good product, and I think everyone on here will agree if they knew what it was.

    I used to use a machine to do calling a few years back and I stopped at that time as it is against the law in Florida... not sure about other states or even of the actual situation now but that is certainly something you want to look at.

    Sounds like you have a good idea though if you can weave your way through the legalities.

    Is there a reason that you just wouldn't gather the phonebook databases and create your own from that, install newfies dialer (free, supported and all around great dialer) on a vps. Problem solved, without a heavy investment.

    Also, I don't know where you guys get your information. Do you have any sources of where the government is cracking down on robo dialing? I run a dialer every day, get screamers every day and have yet to hear from any government agency and our product is borderline illegal... just saying.

    From the article:

    Florida banned automated solicitations under most circumstances years ago, state officials said. But robo-callers can make sales pitches to their prior customers under state law, something the federal regulation prohibits

    That applies only to regular people - not businesses. The laws are pretty much straightforward - don't call peoples homes. Businesses are game though.

    My deal was calling consumers and saw that and moved on... cool if you can call businesses as I think you have something decent going on.

    I'm interested in your idea. But you didn't mention how much investment you are looking for or the work that needs to be done by your partner.

    Please be more specific what you are expecting from the members.

    Slots are $500 for .7% profit share or $1k for 1.4%

    I've got 14 slots filled since yesterday.

    Breakdown if we earn 10Mil this year (gross figures)

    .7% - $70k
    1.4% - $140k

    Each member would sign a profit-sharing agreement and for those who want, they can be a part of the LLC or C-corp being registered.

    I am talking to an attorney on whether or not getting a C-corp in Nevada is the best route.. I hear Nevada is the best (atleast in the US) for incorporating.

    i hope you guys take all infos from OP like business name / tax number etc.
    Otherwise I smell a scam like with ERIC CREED.

    Do you guys really expect 14000% roi on your money? Be more realistic.

    I dont say OP is or will be a scammer -- Be careful !

    peace

    I am a real estate agent. Is there a way that I could call all homeowners in the areas that I work to leave a message with them to see if they wanted to sell or even to direct them to my website to an opt-in form? If so I am hugely interested!

    Well, currently you can contact anyone if you have a business relationship already with that person.. But they are trying to pass laws to prevent this form of robocalling.
