3 Keys To Success In REI

Marketing

Automation

Delegation

But...

You have to keep them in order

Then... 2) Systemize it

Then... 3) Delegate it

Then... 4) Repeat - until you have at least (3-4 different types of marketing going out)

If you have these three things in tune, your marketing will run on virtual AUTO-PILOT

"The less you do, the more you will make"

How Distracted Are You?

You keep on learning new things

Chasing shining objects

Trying to be a "jack of all trades", but was a "master of none"

Meet John

Doing a TON of work

But making NO progress

Frustration was leading to a drop in production... He wasn't making any money

Why?, He was doing it all! Everything he was supposed to be doing!, Postcards, Yellow Letters, Craigslist, Google PPC, Bandit Signs, etc, But no results

Solution?, Wrote everything down that he was currently doing, Then wrote what % complete he was with each item, With John, nothing was at 100%!, Everything was between 50% - 75% complete

So what do you do now?

Break down all your systems into the most BASIC things

FOCUS on just one thing at a time

Don't leave it until it is running at 100%

Once the System is in place, you Delegate it, then move on to the next System

For example - postcards

Break down the system and write everything down

1) Get a list, What list to get?, How to clean the list & remove duplicates

2) Set up a phone number, 24 hour recorded message?, Live answer?, Local or toll-free?

3) Where are the leads going and how are they being tracked?, Podio?, Google Sheets?, Yellow pads?

4) What is the postcard going to say?

5) How often / frequency?

6) Who prints and sends the postcards?, Click2Mail?, Local mailhouse?

7) Budget

8) Track results and measure

9) Who is going to do what now?, Write down procedure - Google Doc, Do a video of you doing it, Paste link to video, Give it to your VA, Don't forget - Measurable results & expectations!

Etc, etc...

Action Steps

"Ignorance on fire is better than fire on ice"

"Done is the new perfect"

Take a list of all the marketing that you want to do

Prioritize that list

Direct mail

Target Craigslist ads

Networking

Bandit Signs

Focus on one thing & don't leave it until it is 100% up and running without you
