There are several options when it comes to cold prospecting with FUB.  You may be looking into these options because of the spam risk problems you are encountering with your FUB or are looking to prevent that from happening.

Also, before you look at the best solution, we have a link to the FUB community group on Facebook, if you aren't a member of that yet you should be.

The best solution:

First thing is first.  You can not go into cold prospecting with the thought you will not get your numbers marked as spam eventually.

What this means is you will need a solution that first gives you access to lots of local phone numbers. 

Second, gives you the ability to rotate your numbers every week or so, or at the very least, when you notice your number is marked as spam, so that you can get a new number easily.

So, the best solution for that is to use Twilio.  Twilio will have tons of local #'s for you to pick from, they are the biggest programmable voice & SMS provider on the market today.

Now, you can't just connect Twilio to your FUB, you need a CRM system that works with FUB & allows you to use your own Twillio account inside of their system.  That solution is "AgentLocator".   

AL solution is the best for a few reasons:

  1.  Pricing - $179/mo
  2.  Comes with a full blown CRM system that has SMS/VOIP calling & Mass texting.
  3.  Comes with a lead generation website & a lot more.
  4.  Allows you to integrate your own Twilio and makes it easy to have a few numbers on rotation as you can have up to 5 user accounts with the $179/mo so you can add multiple numbers to dial with.


First thing you should do is join the Follow Up Boss Community group on Facebook.  It's a great resource for people using FUB, you will find a link to it in our real estate community groups blog post.

First the issue is that you are most likely using your FUB # as a cold prospecting phone number.  You need to stop doing this.   Your FUB # should primarily be used to communicate with people that are willing to communicate with you.  

You can refer to this article about cold prospecting with FUB on your options there.

Second, what you need to do is register your # with the free call registry.

If that doesn't help, you need to get a new number from FUB and this time don't use that # for cold prospecting.  Don't forget to register that # as well.
