Do Not Overlook The Marketing Power Of Craigs List



Do Not Overlook the​ Marketing Power of​ Craigs List
I was never so shocked when I​ discovered the​ marketing power of​ Craigs List .​
Under the​ LEGAL JOBS category of​ Columbus,​ Ohio I​ posted the​ following:
Title:
Seeking Bankruptcy Attorneys
Posting:
Certified Paralegal and Bankruptcy Specialist is​ seeking to​ form alliances with one or​ more bankruptcy attorneys who enjoy working on​ the​ debtor side of​ bankruptcy law .​
I​ have 31 years experience in​ the​ legal field (1977) and have personally built several bankruptcy practices from the​ ground up for attorneys out of​ state .​
Being in​ the​ Columbus,​ Ohio area,​ I​ would like to​ work side-by-side with one or​ more attorneys in​ building a​ highly profitable debtor bankruptcy practice .​
I​ have all the​ skills and marketing knowledge,​ I​ just need the​ attorney .​
Contact Victoria Ring personally at​ 614-875-4496
Compensation:
More than $500 per hour
Less than 24 hours after posting this announcement (which did not cost me one penny),​ I​ received a​ call from an​ attorney on​ my cell phone .​
I​ called and left him a​ message but he did not call me back .​
About three days later I​ received another call from a​ Columbus,​ Ohio attorney but he also did not return my call either .​
At the​ time I​ thought that Craigs List was not going to​ produce any results .​
But it​ did not matter because I​ had no money invested anyway.
However,​ one week later I​ received a​ call from an​ attorney who was so excited about talking to​ me that he asked if​ I​ could be at​ his office in​ an​ hour .​
I​ explained that I​ would not have time to​ put on​ office attire and he said,​ I​ don't care .​
Come in​ your bath robe .​
I​ need to​ speak with you​ immediately .​
So I​ dropped everything I​ was doing and drove to​ his office .​
(I had on​ my blue jeans of​ course.)
When I​ got there I​ met a​ very kind and compassionate young attorney who had never worked in​ bankruptcy law before .​
I​ thought to​ myself,​ This is​ going to​ take some time because I​ will have to​ train the​ attorney plus build him a​ practice .​
But within a​ few minutes I​ found out this was not going to​ be the​ case at​ all .​
Instead,​ I​ had stumbled into a​ gold mine.
After being seated in​ the​ young attorney's office and after 2 or​ 3 minutes of​ chit chat in​ walked an​ attorney in​ my age group (50-60 range,​) He had worked in​ debtor bankruptcy for 25 years and we both knew many of​ the​ same people .​
the​ experienced attorney said he was tired of​ working in​ bankruptcy and wanted to​ set up the​ young attorney in​ his own practice .​
He said he was receiving 10-15 referrals (new bankruptcy filings) every day because the​ world of​ bankruptcy is​ getting ready to​ boom .​
I​ agreed with him.
Inside Scoop for Virtual Assistants: Due to​ the​ increasing amount of​ foreclosures as​ well as​ the​ increase in​ gas prices,​ millions of​ people are moving from their homes .​
They are moving either due to​ a​ foreclosure or​ to​ be closer to​ work and cut down on​ their gasoline usage .​
However,​ people normally move during the​ summer months (May,​ June,​ July and August) when their children are out of​ school .​
So this summer (2008) should be a​ record year for bankruptcy filings due to​ the​ foreclosures and rising costs that force people into bankruptcy .​
Therefore,​ make sure you​ have the​ skills and knowledge to​ provide the​ much needed services of​ preparing Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy petitions .​
I​ cannot stress enough how rare this skill is​ .​
And the​ more you​ work in​ the​ bankruptcy field,​ the​ more you​ will realize this fact.
Needless to​ say,​ I​ got the​ job .​
I​ now work virtually for a​ young attorney here in​ the​ Columbus,​ Ohio area .​
I​ decided to​ do my own client intake interviews because I​ can get more detailed information about a​ case when I​ am sitting face to​ face with the​ clients .​
I​ also have been promised 50-60 bankruptcy petitions per month - about $15,​000 and the​ amount could quickly grow .​
This will allow me to​ hire people and give jobs to​ people who truly need it.
Additionally,​ the​ attorneys were both so happy about finding someone with my skills that they asked me to​ work for them exclusively .​
I​ said,​ If you​ can keep me busy and at​ this level of​ income,​ I​ will not seek work from another attorney in​ the​ Columbus,​ Ohio area .​
However,​ I​ will still travel and set up attorneys in​ their bankruptcy practice because I​ enjoy doing this .​
They saw no problem with this arrangement.
Now tell me - who do you​ know who is​ out there looking for a​ job that can walk into an​ attorneys office and within 30 minutes receive: (1) a​ job paying a​ minimum salary of​ $180,​000 per year; (2) An office of​ their own to​ conduct client interviews; (3) the​ ability to​ work from home; (4) the​ ability to​ name their own terms? Not many people .​
But you​ can do the​ same thing that I​ did .​
It may take some practice and you​ may make a​ few mistakes in​ the​ process,​ but I​ assure you​ - the​ SKILLS you​ have preparing Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 petitions is​ in​ high demand .​
I​ am living proof of​ it.
I urge you​ to​ go to​ craigslist.org/,​ sign up for an​ account and start posting free ads to​ the​ legal categories in​ your city and state,​ surrounding areas,​ or​ even other city and states 3,​000 miles from you​ .​
It doesn't matter where you​ live or​ where the​ attorney's office is​ located .​
Your skills are in​ high demand and if​ you​ believe that with all your heart,​ you​ can and will succeed.
