I have thought about adding a filter, but then I am not sure I would get 15 leads a week.
Nothin to change if you're getting 3 to 5 out of 15! Sounds like you're in a pretty rural area though, so 15 probably keeps you pretty busy. jmo

Is there a distinction between a "fresh" lead one might not work for 3-4 weeks depending on how one organizes their territory(territories), and an "aged" lead?

A fresh lead is a lead that is scanned and emailed to you within a few days of when it was received from the mail house.

As far as i'm concerned, an aged lead is a year or 2 old, maybe even older.

We often have leads that are 6 months to a year old, and are available at a discounted price. Being that the lead is discounted and has never been in the hands of another agent makes this a sweet deal. Most of these leads are just as good as they were the day the prospect mailed in the card.

We have an agent that won't buy new leads and works throughout Florida buying up all the discounted leads he can get.

He will tell you that age doesn't mean a thing since these folks are all serial mailers. Sometime he knocks on the door and finds out that the prospect moved. Instead of walking away, he uses the lead card to offer the new tenant the "Benefit Information" and makes sales doing this.

Had to call to be let in and none agreed. Very few doors I knocked on let me in. None could give me a why other than they misunderstood. Card plainly states life insurance. I only want leads that want to buy. Reckon Doug will sell me those? 3 sales out of 15 is OK, but weeding out those deadbeats is hard work.
