At what point do you decide whether it is worth it to spend the time and energy to purse the link though the phone or other methods?
I'm new to this and still learning but I always phone now if I can.
There's usually nothing special about the sites I work on; I always used email to start and success rate - a 'yes' - was 2-3%.
Now, even for sites that aren't great, response rate (as in 'yes, send me that email to my personal email address') is more like 80%, and final success rate more like 25-35%.
Recently, for the first time, I was asking for links on the phone for a business that my 'prospects' had heard of. Response rate there was close to 100% and final success rate 75-80%.
Lesson learnt: BE KNOWN!
