CRAIGSLIST LEADS in about 90 minutes? | Episode 64

How would you like to know the 23-word combination that is yielding SERIOUS LEADS from Craigslist for real estate investors? If you are not effectively leveraging the GOLD MINE of deal and funding leads that is available on Craigslist, then you’ve got to get them. I’ll tell you the combination and how to use it in today’s episode. I’m Carole Ellis. This is Episode 64.

So wouldn’t you like it if you could copy and paste a certain combination of words into your local craigslist posts and immediately start hearing from motivated buyers, sellers, and investors who all were hoping to work with you? If you had money to fund deals and good deals coming out your ears, don’t you think you could work with that? I know you could and more importantly, you know you could! We’ll get to that 23-word combo in just a minute, as well as a little tidbit about just how FAST this sucker works sometimes, but first, I want to mention something in the news that is really important for real estate investors today.

You know that being in real estate can be a risky business, especially if part of your process involves meeting buyers or sellers, who are usually strangers, alone in vacant properties. While you know it’s never a good idea to go alone to meet someone in an essentially abandoned building, there are a lot of other schemes going on right now designed to lure real estate professionals into dangerous situations. In fact, you may remember just a few weeks ago a young girl managed to lure a grown man who was a property manager into an apartment where her co-conspirators held him at gunpoint, knocked him down, and stole his wedding, ring, phone, and wallet – all while his wife sat unsuspecting in the truck parked out on the curb! Find out how this big, strong guy was taken in by a young woman and the red flags he should have spotted (he told the media firsthand later what his biggest mistake was!) by going to the REI Today vault at http://www.rei.today/vault and downloading our Real Estate Investor Safety Guide. Part of our mission at REI Today is to make your investing SAFER (in addition to faster and more profitable) so don’t delay. Get that guide now at www.rei.today/vault.

Now, let’s get back to that 23-word combination that is helping investors rake in the leads on Craigslist. First, I’ll tell you where I got it. I got this combination of words from a creative financing expert whose entire business hinges on his ability to generate leads for his funding and, conversely, funding for his deals. (not so unlike you and me, right?) but this guy operates on a HUGE scale, doing hundreds of deals a year and helping broker lots and lots of loan transactions. So when he tells me this ad is one of just 10 that he uses to create a steady stream of funding for his deals and deals for his funding (kind of two birds with one craigslist ad), I was pretty excited to hear about it. I asked him to give us the ad copy, and I didn’t really expect him to say he would. After all, these are pretty valuable 23 words. But he did, and here they are:

“Private Investor has Cash to Lend!” Private investor has cash to lend on good real estate deals. Text or email [your name] for details.”

Pretty simple, right? Maybe even TOO SIMPLE? Well, here’s what he told me to do:

Throw that sucker up on Craigslist and see how it works for you! You can put it in housing or even in the finance section, and some students actually have seen results from this ad in about 90 minutes, though of course that depends on your local housing market. If you’d like to see the other ads and learn more about what to do with the deals that this type of simple, straightforward Craigslist ad can bring rolling in, then you’ll want to check out our special REI Today Saturday Training with  our expert. He’ll not only discuss other variations of this ad that have been HUGELY successful for him, but he’ll also talk about how you can get involved in real estate in a way that lets you work part time, doesn’t require you to buy or sell properties yourself (unless you want to fund your own deals) and basically creates “one-and-done” income streams for you, meaning that you can do real estate deals without having to rehab, renovate, or EVEN WHOLESALE, (that’s for you folks who don’t ever want to even get near a closing table, much less a paint brush or new carpet…)

You can register for this training which will play TWO TIMES ONLY this Saturday at www.rei.today/paidtwice (PAIDTWICE is one word) and I encourage you to check it out. The information just on how to leverage your Craigslist ads is worth that little bit of time out on your weekend all by itself.  Sign up (space is limited) at www.rei.today/paidtwice for the training, then head over to the REI Today Vault to check out a special success story from a guy who is using this ad system and the associated no-real-estate-necessary version of investing to generate about $200,000 in funding for his own personal business about which he’s quite passionate (so as  you can see, this really doesn’t require you to work full-time on it unless you just want to). Not yet a member of the REI Today Vault? Don’t worry, and don’t delay. Text REITODAY no spaces no periods to 33444 and I’ll immediately send you the information you need to get that access and ALSO provide you with fast, immediate access to all sorts of great trainings, news coverage, interviews, and lot more timely information that will help make your investing safer, faster, and more profitable.
