We know what makes money and what doesn’t. Ever since Gavin and I got started in this real estate business, we learned one important thing: you make money on the phone. The real estate business pretty much comes down to two things:
- Marketing to get the leads
- Talking to sellers and making offers
When Gavin first started, he was worried about his accent and how competitive the market is. He spent a lot of money on direct mail and didn’t get any leads. But, after going to a meetup, he met a woman who had about 60 dead leads on her sheet and Gavin made a deal with her to follow up on those dead leads over the phone. Out of the 40 dead leads he called, he closed 2 deals. And the process stayed the same. The sheet had notes on why those sellers didn’t want to sell and Gavin simply called them to follow up if anything has changed since someone last called them to make an offer. Usually, the sellers’ reasons or plans for not wanting to sell don’t happen and when we follow up, something would have already changed and they now want to sell.
You don’t have to spend a ton of money to get leads. There’s no secret sauce to making money in this business. It all boils down to talking to sellers and making offers. And to be successful in doing that, you have to go back to the basics. Our most successful students come from holding them accountable to a simple marketing plan and it’s all about getting on the phone and making offers.
Seeing the success in our students compelled Gavin and me to start our 30-day accountability program called the 5 Sellers a Day and most of our best students come from this program. We only do this program once or twice a year. The program only costs $500 and if you complete the challenge of making 60 successful offers during the 30-day program, we give you your money back – guaranteed. We will teach you how to talk to sellers, make offers and you will have expert support from Gavin and me along with getting fired up by the success you will witness in the program.
The program starts next week so if you’re interested, go to 5SellersADay.com.
