INVESTTHIS EP 83: LinkedIn Marketing Strategies

There’s never been a better time to start taking advantage of LinkedIn marketing. User engagement is up 30%, and the average user has a $150K household income. This enables LinkedIn to provide a powerful audience of decision-makers willing to connect with you. -Yakov Smart

I’m honored and excited to have on today’s show, Yakov Smart, Founder of Linked Lead Enterprises. Yakov is recognized around the world as a leading authority on LinkedIn marketing, appearing as a guest on many media outlets.

A resident of Scottsdale, Arizona, Yakov is a life-long learner, Arizona Marketing Association Hall of Famer and advisor to multiple CEO masterminds. His book, ​Disrupting LinkedIn​, was forwarded by marketing legend Ryan Stewman. He frequently appears on stages at business conferences across the country and has shared the stage with Samantha Dibianci of Bravo’s hit tv show, ​Million Dollar Listing.

Think about this for a minute: when you Google’ someone’s name, what is the first thing that will come up? Their LinkedIn profile! During this episode, Yakov explains why LinkedIn marketing is more powerful for real estate investing marketing than other social platforms. In addition, Yakov provides 3 tips you can start right now to improve your positioning on LinkedIn. He also explains why positioning is critical to your marketing efforts. A one-size-fits-all approach to LinkedIn marketing doesn’t work, and Yakov provides tips on how to tailor your messaging.

Yakov has provided some exclusive free tools for #INVESTTHIS listeners so you can start using the power of LinkedIn to grow your business through effective networking and lead generation.

INVESTTHIS EP 82: Lead Generation Disruptor

Lead generation will never be the same, and I say that with 100% certainty, as I started using IVY RE Data a few months ago. It has significantly changed my business and improved my bottom line, I just wish I had found it sooner!

This is an #INVESTTHIS first! On today’s episode, you will get a full demonstration of the disruptive lead generation system IVY, from Founder Kyle Wyloge. This system is a first of it’s kind, incorporating quality data, lightning-fast skip tracing (we are talking 30 seconds), API Integrations and the best part, no CSV work! You can literally buy a house before your competition even gets their list back. Sounds good, right? It’s even better!

Kyle Wyloge’s fascination with real estate started as a child, going on real estate appointments with his mother. Right out of high school, he obtained his license, did some buyer/seller business then got into the investment side a few years later. He has purchased and resold almost 2000 homes in Maricopa County and represented a large national company to acquire 400+ properties in Colorado within 16 months.

Check out the episode, for an in-depth look at this disruptive technology, and if you want to see the demonstration, head on over to YouTube and watch!

INVESTTHIS EP 81: The Power of Mentorship

I have personally benefited from the power of mentorship, and would not be as successful as I am today without it. I believe it’s a valuable tool to keep pushing you to your highest success. It can also lead you into other avenues of real estate investing, which will expand your portfolio by leaps and bounds.

I’m a huge supporter of anyone and everyone getting a mentor to help them move forward, and I’m thrilled to bring you today’s episode that speaks to one of my passions.

Today’s guest, Templeton Walker, Founder of The Templeton Group, says that mentorship changed his life. He shares his story of how he transitioned from selling shoes at Nordstrom (funny story) to a realtor and then again into real estate investing. Today, his business is thriving, with $40MM in volume, and a large and productive staff. Templeton is adamant that he would not be where he is today without having a mentor.

During today’s episode, you will learn how our skillsets and bottom lines have benefited from mentorship as well as creative ways to find mentors. We also discuss finding creative assets and generating passive income in unique ways. An exciting part of our discussion is what is on everyone’s mind: The market. Where’s it going, and how do you prepare for a possible downturn.
