There's LOTS To Learn From Tate...
If you haven’t heard about it through the Geekvine yet, let me introduce you to LOTS… a series of videos created by Tate that gives you a firsthand look behind the scenes of a successful land investing business and how it is operated.
In this series of videos, Tate goes through the processes of:
  • Visiting a Property
  • Creating Sale Content
  • Deal Review
  • Opening the Mail
  • VIP Buyer Scenario
  • Meeting with my Intake Manager
  • Landmodo Listings
  • Weekly Report Review
Each video runs approximately 15 minutes.
So what better way to learn the land business than by Looking Over Tate’s Shoulder!
This Week on The Art of Passive Income...
Our guest today is Frank Rolfe, founder of Frank has been an investor in the mobile home park business for 23 years and is ranked the 5th largest mobile home park owner in the country.
You may remember Frank from The Best Passive Income Model Podcast where he appeared twice on and once on an old Coffee Talk episode, but this is his first appearance on The Art of Passive Income podcast.
Mobile homes are one of the most affordable housing available, but because of their bad reputation nobody wants them in their backyard so they are federally regulated… Which is one of the reasons they appeal to Frank.
Listen in as Frank talks about the early days and how billboards led him to purchase his first park, Glenhaven, on an impulse buy. That park was losing 2k a month, but Frank saw an opportunity.
The guys take a deep look at:
  • Government regulations and supply & demand
  • The key to the industry
  • Mismanagement and seller financing
  • The deal makers and the deal breakers
Then, Frank breaks down a typical acquisition and talks about the fact that the mobile home industry is the only real estate sector that doesn’t get subsidies.
Frank also addresses the controversy behind the Oliver North rant which had called him out, and so much more on today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income!
In This Week's Round Table...
In this week’s Round Table discussion, Team Land Geek talks about building websites for your land business and whether they contribute to the success of your business or if they’re just a distraction.
Joining Mark are:
  • Scott Bossman
  • Erik Peterson
  • Tate Litchfield
  • Scott Todd
But first, Tate announces that in no way should Scott Todd be associated with Panera Bread ever again and Mark announces the launch of the 2020 apology tour.
Then find out the exciting details behind the newest program, The Land Geek Boardroom—designed to pick up where coaching ends, which leads to the topic of today’s discussion…
Do you need a website for your land investing business? 
Listen in as the guys share their thoughts on websites. They go over the advantages and the disadvantages and all weigh in on how much emphasis you should put into building one to make yourself look more professional. 
To sum it up—Websites do have some advantages, they give you the opportunity to post content about yourself, making you look more legitimate. You can also send leads to your website to see your inventory. 
But… there’s always a but, there are professional investors that run their businesses without having a website. And rarely, does someone stumble across your site and buy land from you. So they are not a necessary component of your business success.
They are however a lot of fun to build, for some people, but when you’re first starting out your focus should be on what WILL move the needle in your business…
  • Mailing
  • Marketing
  • List building
Websites should be worked on after everything else is done. 
Do you really want to spend the money trying to crack Google and Facebook ads to send cold traffic to a website when you can, for free, use a trusted platform and build your buyers list that way, which costs nothing?” 
Finally, Scott Todd tries his best to bait Mark into sharing his thoughts on having both a buying and selling website. Mark has a very strong opinion on this, but does he take the bait?
