I love when people ask me what I do. Most of the time I tell people I’m a real estate investor. Other times when I’m looking to have a little bit more fun I tell people I’m a marketer. Which is what I really do. Sure I do more than that, I do some sales, some remodeling (but very little), some data entry stuff, but mainly marketing.
I go out everyday and try to reach new sellers with different types of marketing, rather it’s direct mail, internet marketing, print ads, email marketing, or your favorite bandit signs. It’s my job to reach these sellers who are going through some kind of negative or distressed situation and be their solution by purchasing their property.
The funny things is, I actually went to college and earned my degree in marketing. My first job out of college, I was selling cars at a Toyota dealership. I thought I would never use my marketing degree outside of college…What a waste of a degree, but lo and behold it was probably the best subject I could get my degree in.
I’m trying to come up with the next best thing in marketing to sellers. If you have any great ideas I would love to hear them. Also if you’re an investor and you need a little help in your marketing, let me know. There are plenty of deals out there for everybody and I’m not scared to help out.
I have a little story for you all if you who need to smile today. I went out to eat with my little brother on Sunday and he’s 16 and he was telling me about some of his dates he’s been taking these girls on. The best by far was him taking one of his girls to Perkins…I bout died when he told me that. I obviously need to take some notes from him and stop taking these chicks to Mestizo’s, Ruth’s Chris and The Melting Pot.
