“Building a Buyers List Using Social Media”
with Rock Shukoor
The Atlanta REIA Beginning Investors Group (BIG) is an educational and networking special interest group, hosted by Alan McDonald, for new investors who are just getting started in real estate investing as well as “new again” real estate investors who’ve taken a few years off and are looking to start investing again. The entire purpose of this group is to help new investors get their first deal and help new again investors get their next deal.
A big part of having the house “sold” before you ever buy it is having an active buyers list of ready, willing and able buyers such as wholesalers, rehabbers, landlords, tenant/buyers, first time home buyers, etc. This month at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG), Rock Shukoor, leader of the I Love Marketing Group is going to share the online and offline tips and tricks that he uses to build his various buyers lists and keep them current.
