I haved enough clients. I tell them I am busy but have a slot for them. I gave everyone a 3 strike opportunities.  I have short patience.

As long as there is an indication of interest or a response from them.   The frequency dies out though when they run out of questions or I run out of new ideas for them.

As often as follow up is needed.

Follow up regarding a 'potential client' as compared to a current client is a stretch of the definition.

One is MARKETING while the other is duty.

Leanne,

For us it has never been about times we follow up.  It is about being a match. When you are a match, it works out perfectly.  This may sound like a rose colored glasses answer, but it really is not.  A

It really depends. If I think that the prospect is motivated, or I can really see where we could put a deal together on one of my properties, I will follow up with them as long as it takes. If a prospect is wishy washy or unrealistic, I will follow up with them periodically, and if I do not like the prospect, I will never follow up with them. I will either refer them or they can find their own way.

I'm not a chaser.  I focus on coming from abundance instead of scarcity.  If a potential client doesn't seem interested, I leave them alone and focus on my "right now" clients.
