In This Week's Round Table...
Facebook is a great marketing tool. It’s a fast and easy way to connect with potential buyers. You can even collect down payments straight from messenger. But, are your ads at their maximum potential?
In this week’s Round Table discussion, join Mark and his dawgs, aka Team Geek…
  • Aaron Williams
  • Scott Bossman
  • Mimi Schmidt
  • Erik Peterson
  • Tate Litchfield
  • Scott Todd
…as they share the best practices for posting on Facebook.
Our Facebook Queen, Mimi, often gets asked about posting on Facebook and one of her suggestions is to advertise far and wide because the land we buy is so rural, by posting only near the property you are putting a limit on the market reach.
The point is to get the word out to a lot of different places and you’ll know by doing it where there’s a demand for it, then double down in those places.
Then, Scott explains what a blind ad is and the team discuss if you should be using them on Facebook. We also dive into the actual ad content and if it’s better to keep it short and simple or be specific and detailed.
Consistency is Key—Ultimately with your ads, you just have to be consistent and put out more ads than you think you need. You don’t need to be a billion-dollar company with your marketing, but you need to have a Geico mindset. They show up every day, 20 times a day “15 minutes or more can save you…” and we all can answer that question because they’re consistently showing up. And they’re not just marketing on one channel, they’re on every single channel. That’s why you should be marketing on every effective channel—Facebook, Craigslist, Landmodo, those are your big three. -Mark

This Week on The Art of Passive Income...
Stuart Gethner—Pharmacist turned real estate investor, instructor, and coach joins us on The Art of Passive Income to talk about why he left pharmaceuticals in the past to start living life for himself!
Stuart, who is also a neighbor of Marks, has been a real estate investor for over 15 years, and he’s done it all—purchased with cash, traditional financing, self-financing, hard money lending, lease options, subject to deals, wholesaling, fix and flips, but his favorite is buy and hold properties because that strategy creates wealth as opposed to just income.
Join the guys as Stuart talks about why he left the pharmaceutical world behind to pursue real estate. And, find out why buy & hold is his favorite now, but is subject to change with the market cycles.
The guys delve into:
  • The 1-2 percent rule
  • Stuarts method of acquisition
  • Funding your first deal
  • Scarcity mindset
The guys also delve a little deeper into cycles and what Stuart predicts is coming next for the real estate market.
Listen in now to hear how this pharmacist turned real estate investor is living life for himself.
