In 2018, I wrote a post: A data-driven analysis: should you “double text/respawn/reinitiate” dead app leads? I concluded that it was not worth it.
At that time, I was only using apps, and now I’m only doing cold approach, so I decided to run a similar analysis for re-initiating dead daygame leads.
Daygamers might hypothesize that this would work better with daygame leads than app leads, given that daygame leads are more invested due to the in-person interaction.
I found that this was not the case. Re-initating dead daygame leads was as equally useless as re-initiating dead app leads:
My test involved double-texting 50 dead daygame leads from both Miami and New York City over the period of December 2021 to August 2022.
I texted only girls that had at least responded to the initial feeler text, thus all 50 leads died out somewhere between responding to the feeler and setting a first date.
All of the double texts were an open loop, a technique proven to get the highest response rate. (I had also re-initiated at least 50 other leads with other strategies previously and gotten nothing).
From here, I would estimate about a third of the girls responded to the open loop.
Of those third, all conversations died except for one that led to a planned date, which the girl flaked on.
Per my analysis, I concluded that I will not be wasting any more time double texting or re-initiating dead daygame leads.
If you get different results, I would love to hear them, and I would love for other guys to do their own analyses. As we know, every situation is radically different based on archetype, location, and a myriad of other factors.
