So last week I decided to go ahead and try 7878's method. I sent out 25 letters. Each included the letter itself, screenshots of the reviews (written over with a red pen), and a pair of dice. It's been a week and no phone calls. So I decided to follow-up. Many were simply not interested or their managers weren't there. Others would state that they would relay a message over to their decision-makers. They'd ask me what company I was calling from and because I'm simply a college freshman I stated I work independently. The first thing I said over the phone during my follow-up: "Hi my name is _____. I'm calling regarding a package I sent in last week. Is there any way I can speak with (name of person I found on Manta) or a higher-up?" Do any of you guys still use this method? If you get no phone-calls, what is your approach to the follow-up (what do you say over the phone, etc.)? What works for you guys? I'm not giving up, just looking at other methods that are more cost-effective. Especially, since it cost me $60 in stamps. Also, yes I do live in a large city in the U.S. Anyone else in the same boat as me?
