"How to Raise Money from Local Businesses to Zero-Cost Your Marketing w/ Chris Watters"
LIVE Thursday, December 27th @ 10:30 AM Pacific
Clients and friends,
I’ve been writing you about my two “add-on” projects both starting again January 2019…
The first is our 6-month real estate agent recruiting project, and the second one is our 4-month project on how to get local businesses to contribute to your marketing budget.
Email me back if you’re interested in either course. I’ll send you more details.
With that, I have a lot of respect for Vyral Client Chris Watters in Austin, and friend of mine who I helped write his book The Million Dollar Real Estate Team.
(I have free copies to give you, let me know if you want one. We’ll put it in the mail).
He started his business after the recession, in debt, and did two things right away to earn, after expenses, $1 million dollars in only three years.
He raised $5,000 a month from local businesses to buy marketing services, and then recruited agents to those leads. He just scaled up from there and his business took off.
How did he get the money to buy the marketing that started it all for him?
I’m a guest on a free, live webinar with him on Thursday, Dec 27th at 10:30 AM PST called “How to Raise Money from Local Businesses to Zero-Cost Your Marketing”.
You can register now for the webinar here – it’s tomorrow!
You can also watch an interview I did with him on how to raise $5,000 a month from local businesses as a new real estate agent on this page.
Chad in San Antonio raised $10,000 a month only his second year in the business. Here’s an interview on how he did it (transcript included on the blog post).
On this webinar with Chris you’ll learn:
1.The top 10 businesses who will give a real estate agent $250-1,000 a month to co-advertise (non-settlement service providers)
2. Key RESPA and business disclosure laws you dare not break (and how to protect yourself)
3. How to organize your first local mastermind meeting with 2-3 business owners
4. How to include them in your video marketing with coupons to your list, in return for money
5. Real stories of brand-new real estate agents raising at least $1-2k a month to get started
There’s just no reason to risk all your own money on marketing. Too many non-settlement service provider businesses benefit from a home sale that you take all the risk to make happen.
NAR's State-by-State Economic Impact of Real Estate Activity says so.
Just click on your state. You’ll see how much money you’re putting into everyone else’s pockets when you sell a home. You can influence where that business goes.
There are a bunch of local businesses who will happily pay $250-1,000 a month to co-advertise with you to get introduced to this potential business ethically and legally.
Chris has over 20 local businesses now in his paid business sponsor list.
You’ll bring together your business sponsors for breakfast once a month, include them in your videos with a coupon to your database, and include them in your “Local Vendor List”.
Gary Keller calls these people your “Allied Resources Group.” They are an excellent source of referrals, too. Many of them will happily share your videos to their database as well – especially when they are in them with you!
We’re going to talk about all the details on how to raise local business money on the webinar.
I invite you to come. It’s live so you can ask us anything.
I also have the latest details from our $700 an hour RESPA attorney, and 3rd party valuation firm, who guided us if you decide to take money from anyone on the settlement statement.
You just, among other things, have to make sure all this is disclosed and valued correctly.
If you’re headed into 2019 worrying about inconsistent revenue to cover expenses, we’ll show you how to smooth that out so your income isn’t only reliant on selling homes.
It’s really hard building a real estate business with variable commission revenue.
Here’s a video with Matt O’Neill on how he raised $10,000 a month and one with Chip Hodgkins on how he raised just $2,500 a month that allowed him to sleep at night.
Both are graduates of the Business Sponsor project. We’re finishing up our Fall/Winter semester now and I’ll have more success stories to share with you shortly.
My goal with this Business Sponsor project is to give you a path to raise all the money you need so your business is consistent and predictable – and to help pay for your Vyral Marketing fee!
Raising money from local businesses is the answer to this – we’ll show you how.
See you on the webinar.
No one in the industry really talks about getting sponsor money – I want to make it a bigger deal and guide you how to do it right.
Here are the results you can expect with our core service when you stay in better touch with your database. I have a ton of interviews on how to get more people to call you.
