Connect with Jeff Cohn on Facebook with questions and to ask him about shadowing: https://www.facebook.com/jeff.cohn.395

He gets his outbound calling assistants / prospectors through  “1000 Calls a Day” (Frank has an ownership interest in this in full disclosure, his old ISA from Vyral is the CEO) - they provide the sales management and get the VA's through MyOutDesk for you.

Make sure to read the book Frank recommends on building scaleable lead generation at www.predictablerevenue.com

Here's the link to the NAR documents on marketing agreements "RESPA Do’s and Don’ts for MSAs".

Jeff is happy to give you access to his Google Drive of all his systems and documents. It also includes time shadowing him in his Omaha office with dinner afterward, for $2,000 - just message him on Facebook.

We'd like to thank Jeff Cohn for sharing his team building skills and systems.

These live on-air Google Hangouts are presented and hosted by our very own Jeff Manson, Hawaii homes broker of American Dream Realty and founder of Real Geeks, in partnership with Frank Klesitz, CEO of Vyral Marketing.
