    Online Marketing to Close More Real Estate Deals - Season 3 Preview

    Online Marketing to Close More Real Estate Deals - Season 3 Preview

    We just finished season 2 which was on Productivity Hacks for Busy Real Estate Entrepreneurs. That season featured 12 value-packed episodes that focused on showing you how to get more done, gain more time, and be more efficient. If you missed any of those episodes, head to leveluprsj.com/season2.
    Now it's time to shift gears for Season 3.
    Season 3 is all about one of my favorite topics - which also happens to be the lifeblood of all successful businesses…
    ... and that's MARKETING!
    More specifically, I'm going to focus on three components of online marketing in your real estate investing business:
    #1 - How to ATTRACT more prospective buyers and sellers to your business
    #2 - Tools and strategies you can use to CONVERT those prospects into actual customers
    #3 - Automated follow up tactics to help NURTURE relationships with your leads and customers
    Since I’m a real estate investor, and I help real estate investors with online marketing, a lot of what I'll be speaking about is going to be from the marketing perspective of an investor running his/her business.
    But, you can actually apply the marketing concepts I'll be sharing this season in just about any business.

    Whitespace: Your Key To Innovation, Clarity, & Hitting Your Goals

    Whitespace: Your Key To Innovation, Clarity, & Hitting Your Goals

    In today's show I'm going to talk about something that we often take for granted in our businesses and our lives…
    ...WHITESPACE.
    I'm not talking about the space in the margins of your website, or the blank space on the edges your business cards.
    I'm referring to gaps that you purposely create in your calendar between meetings, or other activities. It's the time that you consciously allot in your schedule to think, distraction-free.
    If you feel like you've hit a plateau in your business or you're stuck in a rut professionally, financially, or even personally - adding more white space to your life might actually be your answer.
    I know it sounds counter-intuitive that making time in your day to do less will help you be more successful. But, by the end of this show you'll understand why.

    00:57 Topic of today's episode
    01:48 Why whitespace is important
    02:27 Three reasons why creating white space in your day is important
    04:07 Ryan's struggles with whitespace
    04:45 Four ways to create whitespace
    04:51 #1: Be purposeful about your whitespace
    05:30 #2: Schedule your white space during the peak of your productivity cycle
    05:55 #3: Try using that time to do something completely out of routine
    06:14 #4: Start saying "no" more than you say "yes"
    06:43 Action steps
    Quotes
    "High-quality work requires long stretches of high-quality thinking." "If EVERYTHING is important, then NOTHING is important." "Your power to innovate is the whitespace you create." Resources

    Danny Johnson - Sell More Houses By Making Marketing Your "Big Domino"

    Danny Johnson - Sell More Houses By Making Marketing Your "Big Domino"

    If you’re not marketing your business, then you don’t have a business.
     
    ...Or, you won’t have one for in the long run.
     
    Whether you have a real estate business, an Amazon business, or a lemonade stand - consistent marketing is the lifeblood of your company.
     
    As real estate entrepreneurs, consistent marketing is what ensures we have a steady stream of prospective customers finding our services, and the properties we have for sell.
     
    When you neglect marketing it’s inevitable that you’ll suffer from an inconsistent deal flow. And you’ll feel like you’re working from deal to deal - which makes you uncertain about your income and the stability of your business.
     
    I did a previous show on how important it is to focus on one thing (or your big domino in your business), which if you topple it, everything else becomes easier. So in this post I interviewed Danny Johnson, the host of Flipping Junkie. Danny shared his insights and tips on how your real estate business can be more successful, and you can sell more homes, by making marketing your Big Domino.
     
    Topics:
    02:17 Danny's background and his business
    04:10 How marketing has really made an impact on his business
    08:36 What digital marketing really is
    10:47 How much does he focus on digital marketing vs offline marketing
    11:49 Tips on how to make time to ensure your marketing gets done
    16:43 Systems and processes that he has in place that have had the biggest impact on his productivity and marketing efforts
    18:08 His advice to a new real estate investor for the path of least resistance to get their marketing up and going to generate leads
    21:00 Advantages of bandit signs
    22:17 What are the trends in digital marketing for real estate right
