Post Card Results

So for all the people that have sent out post cards do you tend to get all the calls right after the cards go out or do they slowly trickle in as the season goes on?

In general how long after you send them out do you receive lets say 75% of your calls.

Most of the calls you will get will be the day they receive the postcard. There are some stragglers that will sit on it for a couple days.

You have to send out a few rounds of them. Make them read it a few times and they will remember you.
