How can you prove a recruiting service you pay actually does or did something for you
Who is the best? Will you get proof? Depends on the recruiting service. With some it would be very difficult even if you can. We advise to compare before you spend your money. There are a lot of differences between services. Do they help? Can you prove they even did anything?
Is it worth the money to use a recruiting service? I think you will find that a few work.
Calculate the "cost per softball coach" and most importantly determine the "effectiveness" of the service's presentation of your athletic softball abilities (stats, highlights videos, contact information and more). How easy is it for the softball coach to see your resume? Are you delivered to the softball coach or does the coach have to look you up? Will the softball coach only see you (one-on-one) or will they have access to all other softball athletes like you to review lessening your chances?
Know the unspoken recruiting facts (button above) the help guide you. What matters most to you is, how and how often do they get you in front softball coaches? How many softball coaches do they take you to? Logically your odds dramatically increase if you get in front of thousands of college softball coaches instead of 10 to 50.
eScout4uaddressed all the concerns softball parents and athletes had and solved them with innovative technology we have developed one the last 36 years. Like with eBay, Amazon or all other on-line shopping eScout4u has no salespeople / scouts bugging you. We provide your selection, proof of order, creation and shipping and so on. However, like others, we are there to answer questions and guide you as you go through your softball recruiting process.
With eScout4uyou have proof you need on what we say gets done because 1) we work with you to perfect your own softball personal web page (not just a screen with your softball info slapped on it) 2) you proof the final version 3) you send it via our "You Pick Search™". What better proof is there?
Let's go one better since there are softball coaches to athlete contact restrictions' that many apply to you. No problem, we can tell you how many softball coaches actually looked at what you sent. Additional proof we provide.
On top of that we provide a library of important follow-up letters you can send to softball coaches via our "You Pick Search™" and again how many looked at them. More proof.
With eScout4u you know exactly (documented where you log in);
- What we provide and do is in our agreement with you. You can print a hard copy.
- How we help you up front, step by step. Just login and walk though the steps
- How many softball coaches, staff and recruiters per sport
eScout4u is the only service that lets you "test drive" our system before you buy.
Our cost per softball coach contact can't be beat by anyone giving you more college coach exposure for you money.
Proof from other recruiting services
Better to ask them yourself. Most parents and athletes say they can login to certain recruiting services websites (names withheld) and see a list of softball schools that are supposedly interested in them. The problem is when they call those schools no one there ever heard of them.
My point from unspoken recruiting facts (click button above) is you may just miss an softball scholarship opportunity based upon what they don't do for you.
Beware of high pressure recruiting service softball scouts (parents tell me their really salespeople) who want to evaluate you and then do what ever they do.
To me if someone is trying to sell you something they are a salesman (maybe even on commission)
Everyone shops for the best deal to get the most value / results for their hard earned dollars. Well maybe the rick don't care. But for most, we shop.
If they do get you on the phone with their meet with parents "evaluation" sales pitch then be ready to ask questions. Don't succumb to sales pitches like "you need to make a decision now" or the pitch "you can get your money back".
Granted, softball coaches have rules on the times they can contact you.
Question to ask softball sales scouts;
- How can I prove you did anything or not? If yes, How can I do it? Email me how.
- If they brag about how many softball coaches they know, ask "The softball scholarship decision is made only by the college softball coach, right?"
- Explain your softball evaluation / scoring / rating process?
- Do you group me with other softball athletes and send to coaches? If No, how can I be sure you don't?
- Can you send an email stating exactly what you do for us and when exactly does this happen and the cost. Then tell them you will review and get back to them.
Think like a softball college coach™ topic! What would you do?
If you were a college coach you would look at any athlete that came your way. You wouldn't take an athlete from a recruiting service over any other athlete because you will score / rate/ evaluate each athlete and determine if they will go on your position planning board.
Athletes, cover all your bases, athletically and academically. Parents, you can be a big help now.
Again, print, share and discuss between parents and athlete! Use the information to plan your recruiting strategy.
If you disagree or have other facts then email us. Thanks
