 I have been writing yellow letters for homes on the sheriff sale list for 4 months now sending consistently 20-30 per week to homes in my county.  I am having poor success.  Any tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated. I am starting to get discouraged.

What does your message say? Some things work better than others.

Hey Newbie, who exactly are you sending these letters or post cards to, Sheriff's sales? Is that houses that are headed to auction?
It might be too late to buy those houses and the owners were probably already evicted by the banks.

I've had my best luck sending to absentee owners. You can buy a list of those from listsource or listgiant.
It's expensive, 10 to 15 cents per name and you may have to buy a minimum of 5,000 With postage and supplies it can be a ball buster.
I recommend starting off by recruiting bird dogs and the bandit signs and driving the lower income neighborhoods yourself at first.

My first direct mail campaign cost me $4,000, I got one deal that paid $2,000  Luckily I was too dumb to quit and after I learned how to spot a deal and with some negotiation skills my next campaigns were more profitable.

Good luck, and never give up..

I second the absentee owners.

And if you're getting discouraged, just remember the framework is simple...

a) Fish in the right pond (audience)
b) Fish with the right bait (message)

Don't get down on yourself for not getting any deals yet. This business takes time. You've already shown you have what it takes just by starting. Most people wouldn't even have enough courage to do that. keep the faith, i mean whats the alternative, quit? there no reward in quitting. But it if continue on you'll have better chance to achieve your goal

 10- 20 a week is not enough. It's a numbers game and you should try to send a least 10/ day.

I hand write my envelopes and try to send 20/ day. It's a lot of work, but worth it.

Persistence pays off, don't be discouraged. If you work past the point were you want to give up, success is right around the corner
