The yellow letters finally arrived. I had no idea what to expect. This is my first marketing campaign. I just wanted to give an update on what was happening.
It is so scary to fork out money on marketing. It feels like money disappears in thin air. Yeah yeah Marketing is an investment, not an expense. SHUT UP already. Marketing is a NIGHTMARE that’s what it is!
StarDate: February 4 Well, this is counting my eggs before they hatch but… I just sent out a bunch of mailers. This is a large highly targeted list. If I do get something under contract, would any of you be willing to walk me through the process? Maybe we can negotiate some compensation if that inspires you to help? […]
As I travel along on this path every now and then doubts and fears creep in. This may be normal, but it can be dangerous. I finally can clearly see why so many people fail. Success is not just about “making it”. It is not about which actual steps one has to take towards this “making it”. It ALSO is largely about “not giving up”. Steps to take to lift you back up when you feel down. I see it now. And I am fortunate I do. Because now I can prepare myself for this…
I am down, depressed.Work is kicking my ass and I see no light at the end of this dark long tunnel. I can give up and look for a job, or I can step up up and go at it harder. Full time real estate investing it is! Watch out CT I am taking over. You know what. Yes that is it. I will friggin take over CT and show myself I am better than everyone. One day I will be on top of the market looking back thinking how glad I was not to have given up!
Getting a list is quite overwhelming. So many options and you need to select the right options, If you forget one, you may not be targeting people with a high potential of being interested in selling their house. To make matters worse, I have to market my mailers to this list for months and months. So not only is the list expensive… but the mailers you are sending to these people on the list is expensive. So a mistake to not Get The Right Marketing List will be a terrible one.

Help I can’t Start! Sounds familiar? No matter how much you read, no matter how clearly someone tells you what to do, it is just so difficult to start! And I have figured out why! It is because you are not satisfied with that first step. You think: “ok but after that first step I still don’t know how I […]
