On Wednesday, January 19th at 6:00 PM at the Atlanta REIA North Meeting located at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D in Buford, GA (map), I, Dustin Griffin, will spend some time telling our audience why you need a good real estate investor website(s), what a good website looks like, what a good website does, how to drive traffic to the site and how Atlanta REIA members can get our real estate investor websites at a HUGE discount well of our regular prices. If you have been waiting to get a good website(s) to run your real estate investing business, your wait is up! Join us on Wednesday and find out how. You will NOT be disappointed and will learn something whether you take advantage of our websites or not.
As you know, my good friend and mentor, Ron LeGrand, spent a good deal of time over the past few weeks, during our webinars, teleconference calls, main meeting and one day workshop, illustrating the importance of having a good website to generate and capture leads online. Hearing him say this repeatedly brought back fond memories. I remember when I approached Ron back in the early 2000’s at his Information Marketing Bootcamp, after websites had already been quite popular since the early to mid 90’s, and told him about the importance of having a good website to generate and capture leads online, mange buyer and seller leads and to run your investing business remotely from virtually any computer on the planet with an Internet connection. I told him about how my websites and back office business management system had revolutionized my real estate investing business.
At first, Ron was quite skeptical because he did not use a computer at the time and had been buying houses for years without a PC or the Internet. However, I asked him to take a look at my websites and online business management systems from his students point of view rather than his own. When he did, he too soon realized that the rest of us, especially the younger generation, do use computers and the Internet quite heavily and that we needed online tools and technology to help us run our businesses more effectively. Shortly thereafter, Ron incorporated websites into his own real estate buying and selling business and he has been encouraging new and seasoned investors to use websites to generate and capture leads online ever since.
Fast forwarding to today, I think it is safe to say that 80 to 90% of home buyers and sellers use the Internet to buy and sell their home. Because of this, having a good website that generates traffic, captures leads and helps you and your staff manager your leads and your real estate investing business is more important than ever. In the year 2011, if you don’t have a professional website, many people are not going to take you very seriously and you are going to be stuck doing business the old fashioned way which many of us know is not working in today’s trouble economy and soft real estate market. But even if you agree you need a site, you don’t just want any site… you want a good site… a really good site built by investors for investors. You want a site that will grow and adapt to the current economy, the current real estate market, current technology and so on. You want to work with website providers who know the real estate investing business and will teach you how to utilize modern technology to grow your business, not just a bunch computer geeks who are willing to build you an expensive science project and expect you to know how to use it.
That’s where I come in. As Executive Director of Atlanta REIA, it is my mission to help all of our members embrace technology and the Internet and use it to the best of their abilities to make their personal and business lives lives more effective and enjoyable. Just so you know, in addition to buying and selling real estate for over 11 years, I have been building dynamic, database driven websites for serious real estate investors for over 15 years. So, when it comes to your investor website and online marketing needs, I have you covered. I’m not just a computer and Internet geek… I am a serious real estate investor just like you.
I had not planned on rolling out our investor websites for our members until the Spring of 2011, after we put our Atlanta REIA Charter Membership Drive behind us. But because Ron went out of his way to let everyone know that I build some of the best real estate investor websites on the planet and offer the training needed to use them effectively, everyone has been asking how they can get involved and use our sites NOW rather than later. Thank you Ron! So for the past month, I’ve been telling everyone to wait until this week and I will let them know how to get them. Well, the time has come…
This Wednesday, January 19th at 6:00 PM at the Atlanta REIA North Meeting, I will how show you why you need a good website, how to market them and how Atlanta REIA members can get our investor websites at a HUGE discount, well below our regular prices. If you have been waiting to get a good website (s) to run your real estate investing business, your wait is up! Join us on Wednesday and find out how. I look forward to seeing you there!
